    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Arby's (Ocean Springs, MS) in July 2015.

    Interview

    I wasn't interviewed very much. I guess they had just fired a girl because she was dishonest with the company and since my application was on file they pulled it and called me. I went into the restaurant and sat down with the general manager who just asked mostly questions about my work availability. It didn't feel very much like an interview and it was short. They seemed like they just really needed to hire someone ASAP.

    Application

    Interview

    Interview was very laid back. I had worked for them in the past so it was very easy. I had remembered a lot of their values and standards and the manager was impressed.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Arby's (Tempe, AZ) in May 2015.

    Interview

    I turned in an application on a Monday and got a call back the next day asking for an interview that Wednesday but I had to push it back a day, which was fine with the assistant manager. I arrived about fifteen odd minutes early to a slow frontline but a busy AM. I caught in in a down moment and told her when she was ready, I was, no rush. She offered me some water and took abother maybe five minutes to start up the interview. I had prepared myself via this site/app for the "crew member" position and had the more 'laid back' experience described by others. As in I was asked about my hobbies, a bit about where I'd worked before and what duties I held, and then was told straight out that she was interested in hiring me and then we talked availability. However this Arby's seemed so shortstaffed that she left the interview for about five minutes to take care of what I think was some drive thru orders and/or the fry line, so they definitely needed some help. Overall good experience and I'm having a good time working there so far, too! Hope this helps :)

    Interview

    Applied online at Snagajob.com and got a call about 2 hours later to set up an interview the next day. Got hired immediately because she needed people on the job and many were cut. Came in three days later to fill out paperwork and started that day. Pretty easy interview. Great for summer employment.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Arby's (Knoxville, TN) in May 2015.

    Interview

    Everything seemed very unprofessional. The manager set up an interview on the spot when I turned in my application for the next day. The interview there went very well, and he told me to come back a few days later with a photo ID and set me up for training. I showed up fifteen minutes early for my second interview, something I always do to give a good impression about my punctuality, and the manager is nowhere to be found. The employees had no idea where the manager was either. Finally, a crew member went back to his office to tell him I was there and ask if he wanted to reschedule, to which he responded "I'm just talking to corporate for a few minutes, tell her I'll be out soon". I proceeded to sit there and wait for the manager for 2 hours, until a NEW manager came out to do my "interview". I don't know if this guy was from corporate or what, but I'd never seen him working there before, and since he was talking to "corporate", I'm assuming that's where he was from. This guys basically gave me the EXACT same interview that the previous manager did. So I politely told him "I already passed the interview with -managers name-, I'm just here to receive my paper work and give you guys a photo copy of my ID". He completely ignored that and continued to ask me the same questions. I ended up getting the job, but it turns out, I didn't even need to bring my ID, social security card, birth certificate, work pants, or shoes today, all of which I spent the entire previous day getting together. My mother works in corp. and she knows that if there's a meeting going on during the same time as an interview, you're not supposed to tell the interviewee to wait. Especially not for 2 hours. Im supposed to go in for training a week from today, and I'm glad I got the job, but I'm now doubting if I even want to work for them based on how unproffesionally they handled things today.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Arby's (Savannah, GA) in May 2015.

    Interview

    I arrived at my interview and was offered a beverage, but then declined. One of the employees asked my name and went to get the manager. He then came out and I stood greeting him. When then sat down and started the interview. He introduced himself and then asked about me, my extra curricular activities, and transportation. I noted that I was 16 along the way and he said " I didn't know you were that young." It took me buy surprise because the job opening was for a teenager 16+. Then he went on to tell me about how the business was in a crime area and concluded that because I was student council president, and maintained good grades that I didn't have enough street smarts to work there. He even brought out other employees that I suppose were suppose to give off an aggressive personality. I was ready to leave at this point. At the end he said to give him a call in a few days, but after the interview I left and never looked back. I applied to another arbys a couple months later and I got the job. While the first location wasn't the best, I do believe I'm going to like the second arbys location.
