    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took a weekinterviewed at Krispy Kreme.

    Interview

    I submitted a short application online that was basically all about my availability. The store that I was applying at had not opened yet, and they were looking for people to hire before the opening. Then I, along with about 20-30 other people, was asked to come in and put in a real application at the store. There, I had a short interview that was essentially all about my availability. It was pretty easygoing. I told the manager it was my first interview ever, and he tried to make it as painless as possible. Then a couple days later, he texted me and asked me to come in for another interview. This time, there were 3 other people there, and he called us back one at a time. I was the third person called back, and the interview was almost exactly like the first one, except this time, I was offered a job and told to come in to start training that Friday. Overall, it was a really easy interview process, and the questions were mostly about availability.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Krispy Kreme.

    Interview

    I applied online through the Krispy Kreme website. I received an email within 48 hours, asking what time I will be available for an interview*. At the interview I met three people. One asked me fairly basic questions about myself and wanted to know how I would respond to various scenarios. After I spoke with that person, I moved to another person (of higher ranking). The second person had my application and was asking me questions about my application responses [I see you have/are____. How did/do you like ______?] After speaking with them for a short while, I was offered the job. I then moved to the last person. The matters of discussion were strictly technical. The only thing this person did was get my contact information, set me up for the drug test screening and gave me some papers to look over. Overall, I was there for about 30 minutes. Everything was done professionally. *Although the interview was 1:1, there were multiple interviews occurring simultaneously.

    Interview

    I went into the store and asked to speak with the manager and had to wait for 30 minutes. When he came to speak with me I just asked if they were hiring and he said what shifts they needed more help on and asked which days I would want to be off. He wrote my name on a very unorganized taped together "schedule" and asked what day I could start and then i filled out paperwork and received a shirt to wear.
