    Interview Details

    I first became interested at a career fair where I talked with a recruiter. This led to an online application which decided if you got an interview or not. If you passed this interview you then got a 2nd/final round interview at their headquarters in Miami.

    Management Trainee Program Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Burger King in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    On campus interview - 2:1

    The interviewer began speaking to me in French that threw me off. He was very aggressive in his interview style, used profanity at several points in the interview and rolled his eyes at my answers. He also interrupted me several times and criticized my opinions.

    Most of the questions were unrelated to the job. A mix of brain teasers and personal questions. These scare tactics are definitely not the way to attract good people. The program seems mediocre and lacks prestige in my opinion.

    Interview Details

    I applied online for the job , I missed the first call but she left a message about if I had time I could come in for an interview that day and if not I could just call to set up another interview. I had to do 2 different interviews before they offered me the job. This was my first job so they asked questions about my school experiences and being a leader, things of that nature. What were some of my weaknesses and strengths.

    Interview Details

    I applied online, the called me back within 30 minutes and asked me to come in for an interview. It was super easy. Questions weren't hard, I think they asked me two, tell me about you're self, what would you do if you mess up an order. I got offered the job after she asked me what I would do i she threw her pen at me? Altogether it was a super lax interview.

    Crew Member Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Burger King in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    I filled out an application online and within 12 hours I received a phone call asking if I had 10-15 minutes to do a phone interview. The phone interview lasted about 5-7 minutes and the questions were basic interview questions such as tell me about yourself, why Burger King, and they asked about my past work experience and if I ever had to follow a uniform policy. At the end of the phone interview, I was asked to come in a few days later for a second interview.
    This interview was 1 on 1 in the dining room and the interviewer asked about four or five pages of "what would you do if..." kind of questions and asked how I would get to work and if I would be okay with cleaning. This interview was the most laid back and it was really like talking to a friend. I usually get VERY nervous during interviews, but the interviewer made me feel very comfortable, even offering me a free drink while I waited for her to come out to the dining room.
    After the second interview, I was told that Burger King follows a three interview process. The manager from the second interview went in the back, and a new manager came out a few minutes later to do the third interview. He was pretty laid back, but he did ask the hardest questions. He only asked maybe 5 or 6 questions and at the end of the interview, he said that he would call me later that day with the results.
    About three hours after doing my second and third interviews, I received a call from the last manager that interviewed me. He said that I was chosen for the job and welcomed me to the team. He then took my shirt and pant size and told me when to come in for orientation.

    Sales, Profit, and Operations Coach Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Burger King in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    The interview process was very typical at first. Contacted by a recruiter and had a very typical interview (situational questions such as tell me about a time you had to change direction quickly, explain a typical day in your current role, what is your proudest achievement to date, why Burger King, why leaving current employer, etc.). Moved on to an interview with HR (more of the same questions). These were both phone interviews.

    The third virtual interview is where it got weird, and I realized the manager who interviewed me, the recruiter, and HR were not on the same page. I had great interviews with the recruiter and HR which were very positive, but the manager and I had the complete opposite experience. I realized from the moment I started speaking that I was counted out. While I have extensive management experience, it is in retail, and I do not have a restaurant background. He made his point very clear that he wanted someone with restaurant management experience from the start. He continually reiterated the point that I have not worked in a restaurant and therefore, I would require more training. He asked me maybe three questions which I answered well (similar answers I used with HR which was a great interview!) and only half paid attention to my answers appearing totally disinterested from the start. I left the interview feeling very disrespected since he didn't really pay attention to me and like my time had been wasted since I clearly was not going to be able to meet the criteria he was looking for based on my work experience. I am not sure why HR put me through to another interview if this is the case or even why I was contacted in the first place. Still think it would be a good job and a good place to work, but if you don't have restaurant experience, they may count you out before you even interview.

    Interview Questions
    • None of the questions were very challenging. Overall typical interview questions. Be prepared to speak to why Burger King, why you are leaving your current job, and what you feel you can bring to the table.   Answer Question

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Diego, CA
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Burger King in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    I was first contacted by the sr. recruiter at BKC regarding the position for my area. I replied and a few days later she called, explained the position and we had a 25-30 minute interview after which she moved me onto a 2nd interview with the HR Manager the following week. The second interview was 23 mintues, again over the phone, with very easy questions and I was moved onto the third and final interview. However, before having the 3rd interview the Sr. Recruiter called me to let me know that this position required someone who was bilingual in Spanish. This information would have been nice to know before I spent two weeks preparing for the interviews and pausing my job search. The questions were easy but there seems to be a bit of a communication error between the various hiring managers.
