    Interview

    I went in and asked, got a mini application, from there you have to call a number and are asked several questions from an automated voice thing. If you (when you, it's not hard) get a reference number, you write it and bring the mini app back. From there you get a full application.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Waffle House.

    Interview

    The interview was very straightforward, I met with the Region Manager and District Manager, discussing what I was interested in achieving and doing as a manager as well as my philosophies regarding work ethic and customer relationships. We discussed previous work and how it'd apply to the job, and spent a good amount of time going over exactly what the job would entail. Overall, it was a good experience!

    Interview Questions

    • They asked about the salary at the end of the interview, which I was not entirely expecting.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    They asked what I would like to be compensated for the job, it was simple enough. I asked for a salary comparable to the average on this site for the job I applied for.

    Interview

    I went in and asked for an application on a Tuesday, before I even began filling out the tiny half-sheet of paper mini application the manager came to interview me. The only question she asked me was if I had any tattoos.

    The second interview was with the franchise owners that next Thursday. They asked me two questions, one being what size shirt I would need to begin training and orientation the following Monday.

    Mind you I had no experience as this was my first job.

    Applied Online in person interview with district manager conversational interview nothing too difficult. Decided not to move forward after finding out that the actual position was nothing like it described on the job listing. They were looking for more of a recruiter than a person in hr and the salary was based mostly on commission.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Waffle House (Tuscaloosa, AL) in October 2014.

    Interview

    First I applied for the position, which wasn't difficult. We set up an interview in person at a Waffle house. They gave me a sales pitch for the job and told me all the wonderful things about the company. I liked what i was hearing just the hours sounded awful and the work sounded worse to me. It really isn't a bad job but just wasn't for me. If you have a 4 year degree you can do better. You can read get more detail from another review.
