General Manager Interview

General Manager

The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Arby's in May 2010.

Interview Details – Phone interview with corporate recruiter (they found my resume and contacted me). I was then contacted by the DM and had a 1:1 interview. Then met with another DM for personality/IQ test. Later met with area Director of Operations for 1:1 interview. Once DO approved hire, submitted drug and background test. After that, received offer over the phone from DM who would be my supervisor. All management were professional and pleasant. Though the process took about a month, it did not feel dragged out. All managers were very flexible with dates and times for interviews considering that I was currently working.

Interview Question – Tell me about a time you had to make a difficult decision as a general manager.   Answer Question

Reason for Declining – I decided it would be best for my personal situation to stay with my current employer at that time. I am still considering working for Arby's, however, as the managers I met with were all very professional and seem like great people to work for, and the company has a lot of benefits to offer.

Crew Member Interview

Anonymous Employee
Ponca City, OK

I applied in-person and the process took 3 days - interviewed at Arby's in February 2011.

Interview Details – Once an application is submitted it is reviewed by local store management. If the applicant is desirable they are contacted for an interview. There is typically 1 interview but depending on the general manager their could be 2, the first of which would be with an assistant and the 2nd would be with the general manager if the assistant manager passed the application on for further consideration. Once the GM makes their decision to hire there is a background check ran prior to offering the applicant a position.

Interview Question – There are no questions which should be unexpected during the interview. The interview questions are generally typical questions you would be asked during any interview.   Answer Question

Crew Member Interview

Crew Member
Sioux Falls, SD

I applied in-person and the process took a day - interviewed at Arby's in June 2011.

Interview Details – Well, we were opening a new store, so I got interviewed at an old store. They were holding walk-in interviews, so I came in and got an interview. The interview process was great, and I enjoyed talking to the interviewer. The lady who interviewed me was the district manager, and she looked a lot like my great aunt. We enjoyed talking, and a few weeks later I got a call that I had been hired. The only bad thing was the GM had gave me the wrong starting date for the training, so I was a day late for the training.

Interview Question – I would say the most difficult question would have been my weaknesses.   Answer Question
