Very Easy Interview

Crew Member Interview

Anonymous Employee

I applied in-person and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Burger King in January 2010.

Interview Details – After applying, if you get a call asking you to come in for an interview that really means that you are hired and you just need to fill out paperwork. It helps if you know a manager at that particular branch or if you know an employee that is in good standing.

Interview Question – Be prepared to sit down and read (manuals, safety code, expectations of company) for about 45 minutes.   Answer Question

Burger King Management Trainee Program Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate

I applied through college or university and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Burger King.

Interview Details – Starts with phone interview, 2 skype interviews (one person on VP level and 1 in HR), ends with day long interview at HQ. The day long visit to HQ involves a tour, round robin 10 min interviews, a business simulation in groups (good for econ majors) and ends with a 3 min presentation about yourself to upper level management

Interview Question – "If you have a 5 gallon water bottle and a 3 gallon water bottle, how do you get exactly 4 gallons of water into the 5 gallon bottle with any tools"

Also, they will try to intimdate you so be prepared to be grilled on why they should hire you and what you like about BK

Kitchen Staff Interview

Anonymous Employee
Seattle, WA

I applied online and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at Burger King in March 2014.

Interview Details – I submitted an application, online, on Monday. The very next morning I got a call from the manager to come in for a interview. The process was pretty relaxed, she took my info (address, employment history,etc). My second interview was scheduled for a week later, enough time for me to get a food handler license. The second interview was a little longer than the first, mostly because we had to review the employee manual. Then I reviewed training videos for two shifts before I actually started working.

Interview Question – "Give an example of a time you met a difficult situation and overcame it."   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – There was no negotiation.
