    Interview Details

    The interview for the General Manager position is a panel interview with anywhere from 4-6 people including the District Manager and other General Managers. Everything else is pretty standard as far as the process. You apply, get scheduled for your interview and deal with the usual nerves.

    Interview Questions
    • "Explain the most difficult work-related decision you've had to make." This question is difficult because it really depends on what your audience wants to hear, there really is no right or wrong answer here and you may out-think yourself.   Answer Question
