Management Trainee Program Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate

Application Details

I applied online - interviewed at Burger King in December 2013.

Interview Details

Submitted resume and cover letter, did series of phone and virtual interviews. Asked a series of questions and was required to carry out swift calculations on the spot to test competency. The final interview was at headquarters in Miami and was a whole day with a very well qualified fairly small group of people where we were asked to give short presentation on why she should hire them to executives.

Interview Questions
  • The short elevator pitch at the final level was the most stressful point, most individuals gave short powerpoint presentations on themselves. I chose to do a confident short and sweet speech.   View Answer

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Burger King in February 2014.

    Interview Details

    Applications are sent to outside recruiting firm in Chicago, which will schedule first round interview over the phone with a mid-level manager. Behavioral interview. Then if you pass that they schedule a 2nd round phone interview with someone higher up, also behavioral but can ask a few technical questions as well to see if you understand the industry. Then they invite you down to Miam for a final day of interviews that goes from 9 am to 3pm (they make a cut halfway through the day) and if you make it through that you interview with a few other colleagues with the CEO, CFO, and CPO. Amazing experience, highly intimidating.

    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

    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

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Burger King in November 2013.

    Interview Details

    Absolute worst interview experience I have ever had. The people were rude. Even though I attend a top 20 school, they told me my education was subpar after spending $1500 to fly me to Miami for final round interviews. Everyone had an attitude and seemed miserable in their jobs. Prior to final round, I was stood up twice for video interviews. I had to constantly reschedule and they were so unorganized.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Burger King in November 2013.

    Interview Details

    I applied through Campus Recruiting and was invited to two 30 minute 1st round phone interviews. One was behavioral with standard FIT questions and the other was an analytical interview with brainteasers and a market sizing question. After that, I was invited to a final round interview in Miami. The final round consisted of a group strategy game competition, 5 speed interview (10 mins each), and a 3 minute presentation for the CEO and the rest of the candidates. The speed interviews were like mini stress test–questions were often asked in a rapid-fire fashion–just keep your cool and you will be fine. Know about BK since 3G bought them out.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1+ week - interviewed at Burger King in January 2012.

    Interview Details

    1st was the behavior round. It was pretty basic, as long as you know your strengths, and weaknesses, you should be okay. 2nd round was the analytically one. The answers are pretty straight forward as well and even if you don't know the answer, you can usually walk them through a process and make up the answer. All they really care about is your thought process.

    No, you are not able to negotiate as everyone coming in gets the same pay. Just be friend people and get a good roommate to share rent one, a 1 bedroom in Miami is ridiculous. A 2 or 3 bedroom is definitely more doable.

    There were three steps in the interview process:
    1) A relatively easy phone interview with HR/mainly fit questions and gauging interest
    2) Harder questions with upper management - some brainteasers and a case question
    3) 6-hour day-long comprehensive on-site interview. For this one, you definitely want to have your story (why you want to work here...) absolutely down.

    Interview Questions
    • The main question to hit on is why you want to work at Burger King vs. other similar companies, but also be familiar with doing case questions (ex. how many people buy fast food in the U.S. every day)   Answer Question

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeks - interviewed at Burger King in October 2012.

    Interview Details

    There were three parts of the interview process. #1 general call from outsourced HR rep about background and interest in BK- #2 Call with high-level manager with many more behavior interview questions; this lasted about 45 minutes- #3 Invited to BK headquarters in Miami. There were four different people I interviewed with (including the CEO which was cool) and also at times people came into the conference room with me and the 9 other candidates to have conversation. The interviews were different styles, some more conversational and a harder "stress" interview with some math and case questions.

    They also talked a lot about their culture to make sure the candidates were a good fit. The culture is casual in the way of dressing and communicating (there are no offices, only desks) but also extremely intense and competitive among employees. There is little outside work life, 12-14 hour workdays, and very high job turnover rate so be sure to know this if you are applying.
