    The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Burger King (Miami, FL).

    Interview

    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

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

    Interview

    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

Questions were failry simple, consisted of a few behavioral questions and 2 simple brain teasers. Results came out the day after the interview.

    LDP Interview

    Difficult Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    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.

    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.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Burger King in February 2015.

    Interview

    The the first two rounds of interviews were behavioral over video conference. Nothing was really unexpected. They are looking for someone who is very entrepreneurial. They do manage to mix in a few mini case questions or brain teasers. Make sure to pay attention to any hints that they might give you during the more technical questions.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Burger King (Miami, FL) in February 2015.

    Interview

    One phone or on-campus interview with behavioral questions, followed by another phone/skype round with market sizing/brainteaser questions. If you perform well, you may be asked to come into the headquarters for a final day. The day starts with a 1-hour business game where you are trying to grow BK's business on different continents. You really can't prepare for it, but know that they are looking for team players, leaders, and fast learners. Volunteer for any questions they ask after each round and contribute to discussions.
    After that, you will speed interview with 5-7 people for about 10 minutes each. These can vary depending on who interviews you. You will then have two long interviews, one behavioral and one case. BK does a mid-day cut where half of the interviewees are asked to stay if they are still being considered. The finalists end the day in a panel with C-level executives and a few other candidates. You will need to make a 1-min speech on why you want to join BK and why you would be a good fit for the job. The executives will put you and the other candidates on the hot seat for a few minutes. Be prepared for the unexpected - they are really trying to trip you up to see how you will respond under pressure and back up your answers with logic.
    It is LONG day so try to get plenty of sleep!

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Burger King (Miami, FL) in February 2015.

    Interview

    Essentially I had two webcam interviews first. The first one was mostly behavioral and the second one was more analytical. They ask questions like "if you saw a clock at 5:15 what would the angle be?" After that I received a call saying that they wanted to fly me down to Miami. They put you up in a hotel for a night and you start a super day which consisted of a business game, speed interviews, and two 30-minute interviews. After that there was a mid-day cut and about half the people were cut and sent to the airport. Then you begin to prepare to deliver a one-minute speech to the executives, I literally sat and talked with the CEO and he interviews you. I did not end up getting an offer but it was a great experience, tough though and not for non top-tier candidates that have great interpersonal skills.

    Interview

    Manager was really quiet and paused 5 minutes after every question. She asked a lot of questions that weren't really necessary for the position they were going to hire me for. Second interview with the other manager didn't happen because she was busy on the phone with corporate and she just decided to hire me.
