    I filled out an application, and i walked in quite a few times to check on my application, when the hiring manager came back from her vacation, and I came in to check again, she said so you are the one they've have been telling me about, I had an interview on the spot and was hired that day.

    Years later i was eating and talking to a server, and told her i used to work at Denny's she said i should apply the next morning I walked in to give the manager my resume she didn't even interview me she told me her expectations and then asked if I could come to orientation.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Denny's in May 2014.

    Interview Details

    Very short phone interview. The phone call lasted around 3 minutes. I was applying for part-time work at the Wytheville VA restaurant. Was asked about my availability after stating on the application what hours I was available, they ask if I could be more flexible, I stated no due to my children at home. At that point I was told I didn't fit what they needed because they were only interested in people who could work all shifts three shifts.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 6 daysinterviewed at Denny's.

    Interview Details

    Felt the person actually hiring me knew their business. However the environment of the interview was poor. Having other managers present in theory maight be a good idea, but their lack of interest in the process was a waste of time

    Interview Questions
    • Being asked the identical question by both people present was, again, a waste of time and effort. Following a format, but not listening   Answer Question

    Had two interviews. Make sure you present yourself as clean with a shaved beard for the interviews at least. No one likes hair in their food. They ask several questions as to you prior experience serving. Denny's is fast paced so have an answer as to how you will be able to manage your time efficiently.
