    Corporate Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Miami, FL
    Anonymous Employee in Miami, FL
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at Burger King.

    Interview Details

    Was interviewed by a panel after several Skype and a number of calls. The process seemed unorganized and disconnected. The panel was not familiar with the position but they had been trained into elucidating the same responses and buzzwords. Felt unprofessional and unusual for a US company. Probably an interesting place to work if you can fit with the culture.

    Interview Questions
    • Most questions related to why I was interested in the position and the company. After several minutes and in some cases hours between interviews, an ex-management consultant interviewed me on a case style behavioral interview. I would certainly advise the company to avoid using ex-consutlants for human resources roles unless they have experience in that field; a sales and finance consultant in an HR role sends a clear red flag to qualified professionals.   Answer Question

    I applied online. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Burger King in March 2015.

    Interview Details

    I got a call back two days after I applied. Interviewed the next day. The interview was very easy. The manager asked me three questions and looked over my previous experience and availability. She was very nice and seemed to like my answers. I believe I was hired on the spot because she asked me to call her later to set up an orientation date.

    I applied online. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Burger King in March 2015.

    Interview Details

    Very quick and easy. I sat down in the seating area and was given a Health booklet to take a mini quiz on. After that was passed, I filled out paper work and was hired on the spot. Make sure to bring your social security card and copy or else they'll think twice about even giving the interview.

    Leadership Development Program Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Miami, FL

    Application Details

    The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Burger King.

    Interview Details

    There were on-campus interviews, but I was contacted outside of on-campus recruiting after submitting my resume online and at the career fair. I had two online interviews (through something similar to Skype). The first was behavioral with a few brain teasers. A week later, I was contacted for a second round. This was again online, but this time it was almost wholly problem solving. I was then invited down to the HQ in Miami for a final-round interview. The day is LONG. They will split you into teams and you will play a business game. Then, there are five 10 minute "speed" interviews. There is a lunch break and then you return for two 30 minute interviews. Then, they make cuts and you have to present a one-minute presentation to some C-level executives.

    I had a relatively good experience with the online interviews. However, I honestly felt that, in person, everyone was really intense and was trying to trip you up with a million questions about something you said. I personally had a very aggressive interviewer who clearly did not want to be there. The atmosphere was very competitive, which isn't a bad thing- just something to keep in mind.

    Interview Questions
    • Why BK? Why you? Basic brain teasers to test your thought process. Some case-like questions, but without numbers. Again, just to test your thought process.   Answer Question

    Application Details

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

    Interview Details

    Applied via university career site. Received on campus interview within a week. The interviewer was very amiable, but she made it clear they were looking for a specific type of personality. She seemed unsure as to whether or not that was a good thing. After first round, they got back to me within a week. I did not get next round but for final round, candidates are invited to the office in Miami.

    Interview Questions
    • Personality questions. The main thing they were asking is are you type A? Do you fit with culture of BK?   Answer Question

    LDP Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Anonymous Employee
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Burger King.

    Interview Details

    Applied through campus recruiting.
    First round was a half-hour interview with two people - one HR person and one former LDP. This first interview--along with most of the ones during the super day--seemed to be looking to see how well you handle yourself under pressure just as much as gauging actual answers or experience. First round started with behavioral and resume-based questions, including "tell me about yourself in 10 seconds" and some other intense ones. Second half (maybe just last 10min of the 30min interview) had questions to see how you approach problems and think under pressure or something like that. One question was like: "If it's 5:15, how many degrees are between the hour and minute hand?" I actually messed that one up super badly at first but eventually got it. Must not have been that bad becaaauusseeee

    I somehow got past that round and they flew me to Miami the next week. Our super day had very few people, so they didn't make any midday cuts like they usually do apparently. Day included a business game, an hour of speed interviews, two half-hour interviews, and a final group interview with two EVPs.

    Here's some overall advice I guess: Be ready to think on your feet and be confident about it. Try to get a feel for their values and their culture so you can emphasize those qualities about yourself in your interviews. They're looking for a very specific type of person, so figure out what it is and be it.

    Interview Questions
    • How much is your salary worth? (If I could write you a check every year for the rest of your career, what would be the total cost to me?)   Answer Question
    Reasons for Declining

    Compensation would be great but couldn't see myself enjoying my life while working there. Would've been fine for the summer, but got an offer for something way better for me.
