    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Five Guys Burgers & Fries.

    Interview Details

    I applied online and got a email saying that they were having a hiring event at one of there locations. When I got there, someone handed me a application. Once I filled it out, and after some waiting, I had an interview with (I assume) a manager. There were other people having interviews in the restaurant at the same time as I so I didn't know if I was being interviewed by a manager or a employee.

    Process was very easy. Manager asked simple questions. There were not many people there to interview and the restaurant was busy so the manager did not have much time to spend with me.

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Five Guys Burgers & Fries.

    Interview Details

    You have to go through a 3-5 day process of getting you "Burger Associates" which consists of multiple, very descriptive videos of how to cook and assemble burgers, fries, and french fries. Then study to get your ServSafe. One that is finished you will be reviewed by one of the corporate district managers during a shift to see if you can cook, delegate, and deal with customers properly. Once this long process is over you receive your red shirt (manager shirt).

    Assistant Manager Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Five Guys Burgers & Fries in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    Was contacted by who later became known to me as the REGIONAL MANAGER for an interview. The location was about 30 minutes from my house. I was a bit deterred by the distance but I headed out anyway. After at very brief interview, with two people at once, I was told that there was a position open closer to my residence. I was told that I would receive a call from the hiring manager at that location in two days. After a week I decided to make a follow up call. I spoke with the gentleman that initially interviewed me for a status update and was told that the person whom I was expecting a call from was actually with him at that very moment and that I could meet with her at her store location for an interview. I arrived for the interview, introduced myself and we began discussing my qualifications. The hiring manager was VERY impressed with my knowledge of the business and how I articulated my experiences. She was very honest with me by telling me that she WAS NOT going to contact me for an interview but decided to meet with me because of my continued interest. I was ultimately hired as an assistant manager when her location was only interested in acquiring a shift lead!!!!

    The general manager was not prepared to make an assistant manager offer but after becoming familiarized with my qualifications, offered me 100% of the job market value of a Five Guys assistant manager position.

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Five Guys Burgers & Fries in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    I showed up dressed very formally, you dont really have to but i just did because i really needed a job and i care about my first impression. My hiring manager asked me what i knew about the five guys restaurant, asked why i wanted to work there. Asked me many questions, such as what are my strengths, how would I feel in certain situations, explained that I need to be loud when yelling out the patties. Told me I needed to be talkative and not shy. Told me that it does get busy and I need to be on point. Then he allowed me to ask questions about the job. He also explained all the tasks you need to do. After the interview he then told me I looked great for the interview and that I am very well spoken.

    Interview Details

    I applied for the job via craigslist and i got an email back to schedule an interview. The interview itself was really short and i was hardly asked any questions, the manager told me i was hired and that they would call me to come in and fill out paperwork. The phone call never came. Some time had passed and i finally called them. Basically i waited around for two months after my interview before i got "hired." They even told me i'd train at another location, but they never called me.
