Crew Member Interview

Crew Member
Las Vegas, NV

I applied in-person and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Dairy Queen in February 2014.

Interview Details – I handed in my application in person and one month later I was called to set up an interview. The interview asked questions like how would your friends describe you, why should we hire you, basic questions like that. The manager said he would call me in 1-2 weeks to tell me if I got the job or not but they called to tell me I got the job just 4 days later.

Interview Question – Do you know any history about Dairy Queen?   View Answer

Lenexa, KS

I applied in-person and interviewed at Dairy Queen.

Interview Details – Basic interview questions for cashiers — money handling experience, customer service experience, able to memorize items, etc.

Interview Question – What are my hobbies — it seemed really out of place.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – I had asked for $7.75 because I had two years prior experience in food-handling as well as waitressing. I was started at $7.50 and was told a raise would be granted within 30 days upon performance.

I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Dairy Queen.

Interview Details – I went directly to the store and asked for an application. the cashier told me to go online and apply. i applied the same day and called a couple of days later and was asked to come in for an interview. the supervisor was nice and down to earth and seemed interested in me. she asked simple questions and because i had previous experience she assumed i knew the ropes. she laid down the law from the start but also had a hint of leniency. after the interview i was called back the next day and was asked to come to work

Interview Question – the most difficult question was what to do when somebody else was doing wrong   Answer Question

Cashier Interview

Cashier

I applied online and the process took 5 days - interviewed at Dairy Queen in June 2010.

Interview Details – Very easy process. They want upbeat young people who are willing to learn. Incorporate your school experience into your answers if this is your first job or you're a student.

Interview Question – What is good customer service?   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – No negotiation. You start at minimum wage and rarely get a raise unless they promote you to shift leader, and even then it's not that great. Good first job but no room for advancement in pay or position, really.

Management Interview

Management

I applied in-person and interviewed at Dairy Queen.

Interview Details – Hired as fountain clerk-took all of 3 minutes-I was breathing and could write--didn't care about previous jobs or experience-just wanted to know IF I would show up for work everyday. Was started that day-no training-given a list of items and prices and told to start waiting on customers--I was really bad at it, but I learned and now teach newbies so they are not embarrassed and they come back.

Interview Question – Will you show up for work everyday??-they said most don't.   View Answer

Negotiation Details – None-I was oiffered a job to start immediately at minimum wage and grabbed it.
No questions, no expectations, hours listed 10-5 were so off the mark--worked both shifts lots of days cause somebody didn't show up.
Made overtime everyweek-10-20 hours so I could pay the bills. Was just thankful for the chance.
