Grill Cook Interview

Grill Cook
Wooster, OH

I applied online - interviewed at Burger King in January 2014.

Interview Details – The particular woman that gave me my interview was extremely friendly. The interview was a sit-down at one of the booths out in the diner area and lasted about 20 minutes. Interview went well and got a call back a few days later.

Interview Question – Everything was fairly run of the mill in my experience as the interviewer tried (successfully) to keep everything casual.   Answer Question

Assistant Manager Interview

Assistant Manager
Brooklyn, NY

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Burger King in January 2014.

Interview Details – Some of the franchises hire headhunters to find candidates most suited to their needs. I applied online and was contacted by a headhunter. Let's just say that I definitely dodged a bullet by deciding not to further the interview process with this company. The pay that they tried to negotiate was laughable compared to other companies in the area with similar positions. The headhunter in particular was rude and shady, and when I did get to speak with the District Manager he/she wasn't very helpful.

Interview Question – What availability do you have?   View Answer

Interview Details – I entered and sat down then the hiring manager came out and sat with me and asked me a few questions ( what can you contribute to this job? etc.) It was extremely easy and I got hired on the spot and immediately went back and did paperwork.

Interview Question – No difficult or unexpected questions.   View Answer

Negotiation Details – No negotiation in fast food. If you aren't willing to work for $7.25 they'll find someone else who is.
