I applied in-person and the process took a day - interviewed at Arby's in February 2014.

Interview Details – I walked in to the store and the man who was holding the door for me turned out to be the District Manager. He saw me carrying an application, told me to take a seat and he would be with me in a minute. So we had the interview right in the store the same day and it was fairly simple, we went over the application, he asked why I wanted to work there, when I could work, and basically told me I will get a call by monday (it was friday).

Interview Question – All questions were very simple, maybe the hardest was "Why do you want to work here?" and only because I felt it would be wrong to say "I need money" so I came up with other answers.   Answer Question

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

Maple Valley, WA

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 3 days - interviewed at Arby's in December 2009.

The second part is also timed but they do NOT tell you.

Interview Question – Tell me about your biggest mistake   View Answer
