    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took a week. I interviewed at Waffle House (Forest Park, GA) in July 2015.

    Interview

    I went to the Waffle House down the street and asked if they were hiring. He scheduled me an interview with a manager the next day. They give you a yellow paper. Call the #, simple application. I had it filled it and gave it to him during the interview. He said he would call me to schedule a interview with the District manager but never called so I applied again to the one next to it and the guy I talked to was the district manager. So I talked to him and he scheduled an interview with the manager of the store. Had the interview but it wasn't an interview. She said "We need people for this store, you're basically hired" and she was telling me about the job and the training. Orientation is serious. Make sure you bring your SSN and an ID. Don't be late and wear what the manager tells you to wear.

    Walked into a Waffle House, asked if they were hiring and asked for an application. I took it home, filled it out and turned it into a different store. Once I handed it to the waitress I walked out, about 3 people ran after me asking me to come back in to speak to the manager. I came back in, he told me to have a seat and he would be right with me. He sat down, asked me if I wanted something to drink, I said no. He told me hourly pay was $3 and I had to work every holiday. He then sent me to another store that needed help and once I arrived there and talked to that manager I was hired on the spot. Whole process took about hour and a half
