    Interview Details

    Had a phone interview that went well, interview with 2 DO's one thought I might take his job. Very unprofessional and misleading. Was told I was a great fit for the position and that HR would get back to me. Was emailed that they hired another candidate. Ads are still posted for the position. WOW!

    I applied through other source. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Potbelly Sandwich Works.

    Interview Details

    The hiring process was quite simple, casual, and relaxed. Once hired, the training was thorough and extremely helpful. This is a new store and upon opening, Potbelly has a 'dream team' crew of existing employees from other stores that stay with the new employees for a couple weeks for training. They instruct the orientation, provide hands-on practice, and stay at the store for 1-2 weeks after opening to assist with operations.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Potbelly Sandwich Works.

    Interview Details

    The establishment was quick to get back to me; however, the interview was long and seemed like a repetitive barrage of storytelling type-questions. They make you reference a dozen different references to things like "the time you displayed leadership." Otherwise, the contact was very, very nice.

    Interview Questions
    • "Why do you want to work here" is often the most difficult question at fat-food type restaurants like this. What should you say? I LOVE MAKING FOOD FOR MEAN PEOPLE.   Answer Question

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Potbelly Sandwich Works in March 2012.

    Interview Details

    The interview process started with an initial phone interview with a recruiter involving mostly a discussion about the company. After the phone interview I was invited to an in person interview with an IT Director and Engineer. The in person interview consisted mostly of questions regarding my experience on a variety of systems and technologies. There were virtually no situational questions but there were a couple of tests where the interviewers had me attempt to resolve a system issue in front of them.
