Crew Member Interview

Crew Member
La Follette, TN

I applied in-person - interviewed at Hardee's in December 2010.

Interview Details – Application online when google searching www.hardees.com/jobs. Sometimes, coming in (Monday nights most likely to reach General Manager/hiring manager) to ask about job possibilities. One Interview along with the manager's decision on whether to hire or not. If approved, need birth certificate and social security card to prove elgibility. Paperwork includes the information required by all employers, tax info, etc. My interviewer no longer works for the company. She was friendly and approachable while still asking pertinent questions. No drug test or background check are necessary unless applying for a shift leader position or higher.

Interview Question – Questions about finances   View Answer

Negotiation Details – no negotiation.
they tell you when to start
tell you when to come in
and get paid to learn how to do the job.

Cashier Interview

Cashier
Union, MO

I interviewed at Hardee's in July 2013.

Interview Details – First I was give a cup so I could have a drink while I waited for the manager to come out and throughout the interview they asked me questions about why I want to work there and how I am under stressful situations. Then they asked me how I felt about mulit-tasking. They also asked me if I would ever want to move up someday and become a shift leader then possibly general manager. After they asked me all the interview questions they asked me if there were any specific days or hours I couldn't work and I told them my hours of availability. When the interview was finished she shook my hand and told me I had a good chance at getting hired.

Interview Question – How would I react to a customer yelling at me, get a manager, calm them down, etc..   View Answer

Crew Member Interview

Crew Member
Fayetteville, GA

I applied online and the process took 6 days - interviewed at Hardee's in February 2014.

Interview Details – I filled out the application online after seeing the job listing on the department of labor website. I say about four days later, I received a call asking me to come in for an interview on Monday. On Monday, the manager called again to confirm that I was still coming, and she asked me to come in a little earlier than scheduled. I agreed and when I walked in, she was waiting by the door for me. She just looked at me and said you know you already got the job! I was so excited. She gave me a big hug and I filled out paperwork and started training the next day!

Interview Question – She only asked if I was in school, in fact, that was the only question she asked!   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – No negotiation, 7.45/hr, and I took it because I was in desperate need of a job.
