    Application Details

    I applied online. 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.

    Burger King Management Trainee Program Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university - interviewed at Burger King in October 2013.

    Interview Details

    I applied on my college's website for this program. I did well in the initial interview with someone who asked me why I would be a good fit for the company and why I wanted to work for the company. At the end of the interview, I was asked to move on to the analytical interview, which I did not pass.

    Interview Questions
    • The analytical interview is a brain-teaser interview with 6 questions and you can only use a pen and paper and the interviewer watches your paper over a video call. 1st question: What is 37 times 37? Answer: 1,369. 2nd question: What are ten things you can do with a pencil?   View Answer
    • 3rd question: If you have two buckets, one that is 5 gallons and one that is 3 gallons, and there is a faucet of running water, how do you measure exactly 4 gallons?   View Answer
    • 4th question: There are 8 marbles and 2 balancing weight scales. How can you find the heaviest marble using the scale only once or twice?   View Answer
    • 5th question: What is the angle between the pointers on a clock at 11:50 AM?

    Management Trainee Program Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 months - interviewed at Burger King.

    Interview Details

    Dropped off a resume at the career fair and was invited to "coffee chats" later that evening.

    Was later scheduled for a Skype interview that would be heavily case based. Was asked about ten different case like problems ranging from "how many sides of a 10x10x10 rubix cube are painted if dipped in a can of paint" to "how many people are drinking coffee on the east coast right now". Overall, very similar to brain teaser questions where the interviewer wasn't necessarily looking for the "right" answer, but your thought process and if you could get into the general range of the correct answer.

    Received a phone call about two days later inviting me to final round in Miami, where I had "speed-dating-like" interviews (7 rapid fire interviews with different people in the company from different disciplines), was asked to give a presentation to the CFO and CEO, and was put into teams and asked to solve real company problems as a group. Was an incredibly long, but educational day.

    Interview Questions
    • Was tested on my language skills (I speak some obscure languages) and was asked to translate different phrases, yet surprisingly was not tested on my Spanish skills.   Answer Question

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Miami, FL
    Application Details

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

    Interview Details

    1) Talked to them at the school career fair and dropped off resume.
    2) A couple months later, got a phone call from their HR department asking to verify information and to set up a first round interview.
    3) First round interview - phone call interview and all behavioral
    4) Analytical interview - One week later, used their video system but the audio was on the phone. A lot of brainteasers and one market-sizing question. Would be good to practice brainteasers and a little bit of mental math for preparation.
    5) On-site Final Round - 1 hour of "speed dating" interviews, company tour, lunch with recent hires, presentation + group interview with upper management.

    Overall, a very tough and intimidating process after the first round
