    Interview Details

    Applied for position in June, was called a month later for a phone screening. The call went well but it's now been over a month since that call and I've heard nothing. Application status on their website says that applicants are still under review and I haven't received the official declination but after a month of hearing nothing, I am assuming that the answer is no.

    Interview Details

    Found me on campus, asked if I wanted to work part time for some spare money. I came in and filled out an application. This was before they did background checks, drug testing, or personality screening like they do now. It was much simpler then. I actually worked my first shift before I filled out an application.

    Interview Questions
    • There was no question except how much I wanted to make and I said I wanted to make more than the on-campus positions at the school which was 6.50 at the time. They offered me one dollar more than that. I thought that sounded great so I accepted.   Answer Question

Internal candidates that had achieved the position of Shift Leader are generally more favorable for management to hire than external candidates, however externals often apply. You must turn a basic resume and information form to HR. The fist interview is with a member of the HR hiring team. Questions are very basic and outline your leadership experiences. Should you pass, you will be asked to interview in front of a panel of 3-6 managers. The interview will last about one hour and many of the questions are scenario based.

    Interview Questions
    • What is your definition of a leader and a manager? How are they different?
      Tell me about a time you disagreed with your manager.
