I applied through college or university and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Waffle House in March 2013.

Unit Manager Interview

Unit Manager
Little Rock, AR

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Waffle House in March 2014.

Interview Details – Initial phone interview with friendly/helpful recruiter. Met in person to interview with same recruiter. Met in person to interview with young Senior Manager. Knowledge/personality test via computer with recruiter at public library. "Weekend Experience" shadowing a local manager. Hair follicle drug test was scheduled for me to complete if I had continued.

Interview Question – Straightforward questions. She did want to know how I had "earned or sought additional responsibility and/or leadership" in past employment.   Answer Question

Reason for Declining – I can make more money with less demanding schedule in my area of study. Long consideration though because of the private stock options available at this company and the seemingly great people.
