    Franchise Owner/Operator Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Toronto, ON (Canada)

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Student Works Painting (Toronto, ON (Canada)) in November 2014.

    Interview

    The process began with an information session that I went into having no idea what it was about, and the interviews began right after. That night in order to get to the next information session I had a brief phone interview of a couple questions (what experience do you have, etc) that was only about ten-fifteen minutes long. After that information session we had to fill out an online application, complete an online personality survey, and from that were selected for a 30-minute phone interview with one of the higher-ups of the company. That was one of the hardest interviews I've done, full of questions really testing your dedication, thinking, and experience you think is worth something to the company. From there we were further selected for a 45-minute personal interview with the head of the company, which was much more laid back.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Student Works Painting (Kingston, ON (Canada)) in October 2014.

    You will go through several interviews with different levels of management in the company. the first interviews will be with district managers or coaches and the final interview is with the head coach. All interviews are for the purpose of getting to know you. They don't ask you to suck up or buff up your resume or experience to attain the position. all that matters is your work ethic and your ability to push yourself harder than other people. if you are not a good fit for the company you should be thankful that they recognized that, because not everybody is willing to do this work.
