Application Details

I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at In-N-Out Burger in October 2014.

Interview Details

I applied online through their opening soon page. I got an email for an interview a few days later at a different store location (since this store hasn't been opened yet), I had an interview with the assistant manager, or something similar (forgot to ask what title she is). It was a super easy, laid back interview. She just asked me why I want to work at In N Out, what I like to do in my free time, basic questions like that. I was then invited right after the first interview ended to go to a second interview with the store manager that was held a few days later. The second interview went awful, in my opinion. He asked me the same questions the other person did and situational questions. I really struggled with answering what I know about the company, even though In N Out is, hands down, my favorite food place. Surprisingly, they called me back about a week later offering me the position and I of course accepted.

Interview Questions
Negotiation Details
Didn't even think of negotiating. I wanted to work for the company because I love it so much, would've been happy working minimum wage.
Smile, like others say. They're looking for outgoing, energetic people. So even though my interview was bad, I think having open availability and me showing my personality helped get me the job.

    its basically working your way up through the management. They are nice but they are looking for specific traits like outgoingness and clean cut look. Experience is a big deal to them.

    I applied online – interviewed at In-N-Out Burger.

    Interview Details

    A new store opened in my town. Thousands of people were interviewed during a one week period. The interviews were held in the banquet hall of a nearby hotel. The hall was divided into three different sections. I had three interviews on the spot. The first, you walk in and sit at a table. The second, you enter a new room, where you are interviewed by another manager. The third, you are interviewed by a panel of three people, store manager, supervisor etc.

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at In-N-Out Burger in May 2014.

    Interview Details

    Applied online on a Sunday, got a call on Wednesday for an interview the next day. Wore a white polo with some jeans, got there about 15 minutes early. The cashier had me write my name down and told me to sit at a table and he'd come to me. So about 5-10 minutes later, this young looking guy comes out and the first thing he asks is tell me about yourself. Then he asked questions about my availability, extra curricular activities, my best trait, my worst trait, why I want to work there etc. it took about 10 minutes at most. He told me he wanted to see me hired so he set me up for an interview with the store manager on Monday. So on Monday, I come in with the same polo and now some khakis, reading for this interview. It's set for 4:45 but I get tree at 4:30. I tell the cashier and sit at a table and no one has come out by 5:30, so I ask some worker whose mopping the floor. She tells the manager and 5 minutes later he comes out and apologizes and says that there was a shift change and the cashier forgot to tell him. So he has me sit outside with him and asks me about the same stuff except he also asked me about what characteristic I would bring to in n out, how I used my communication skills to work as a team, etc. my answers were alright but not as great as they could have been(maybe since I got bored from the wait). So by the end, when he asked if I had questions, I asked him how he got to his position, if it's hard to learn the ropes, and what the next step is from here. He told me that he has other interviews over the course of this week and the next so he'll call by the end of next week to tell me where I'm at. I don't really expect a call since there's more qualified people(I'm a 16 year old junior), but I might so oh well.

    I applied in-person. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at In-N-Out Burger in March 2014.

    Interview Details

    I started by showing my face there, six times until i actually scored an interview date. In & Out Burger's don't have telephones, you so have to go there in person. I would talk to a manager (they seem to have an extraordinary amount of them,) give them a copy of my application and resumè, and be told to come back a different time to talk to someone else. My application online didn't go through, so always save it before submission, so that you can give them paper copies. Finally, I had an interview. It was really relaxed, we just sat at a empty table outside and he went down my resumè and asked me questions about job experience and background. He asked "what do you think you add to the team here" and something about being a leader or follower. It lasted maybe 15-20 minutes, and they never called (although I was told I would hear from them in a few days,) so I went in and got a "no" from them in person. Good experience, although not a very efficient process for me.
