    Simple interview.. Only really asked how many hours I was willing to work per week and if I had a means of transportation to and from work. I was basically hired on the spot.

    I applied in-person. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Dairy Queen in June 2013.

    Interview Details

    My interview was pretty fast and painless. I was there no longer than 10 minutes. It was a little bit confusing though because my interview was at 10:00AM and the door weren't open till 11AM. I had to walk to the back of the building by the dumpsters.

    What were you expecting to be paid?
    $XX/HR
    Well we usually start new hires at $XX/HR but there is plenty of opportunities to advance if you're serious about it.
    I understand and I'm completely thrilled to have this opportunity to join your wonderful company but $XX/HR is really the lowest I can go.
    Well we still have a few more people to interview but I'll give you a call and let you know either way.
    Thank you I appreciate it!

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Dairy Queen.

    Interview Details

    Basically, my friend (who works at Dairy Queen) told me they were hiring so I went in, filled out an app, and gave my name to the manager. About two weeks later I got a call for an interview. I came in after school on Monday and met one-on-one with the manager. She went over all the basic rules: dress code, hours, job duties, etc. She said if I was hired I should be expecting a call Friday. Well, sure enough, I got the call Friday saying I would be brought onto the team.

    Interview Questions
    • Why should we hire you? (All of the other questions were extremely easy and could be answered concisely)   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details

    Assistant Manager Interview

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Dairy Queen.

    Interview Details

    Very typical for interviews. Asked about prior experience, what I hoped to gain by joining the DQ team, what my strengths and weaknesses were.

    I thought it was weird I was asked if I possessed reliable transportation. I get that they want to make sure you can make it to work, but if they refused to hire me if I said no, I'd be upset. It's not like I can't figure out a way to get there without a personal vehicle.
