Unit Manager Interview

Anonymous Employee

I applied through college or university and the process took 6 weeks - interviewed at Waffle House.

Interview Details – The Area People Director (APD) for our 28 store area interviewed me first in a local unit. It went well, and she did a majority of the talking as she explained the company and the position. I had to do a second interview with the division manager (manages 9 units); I later met the APD again to complete a personality test to see if I matched what they were looking for. In all, 3 interviews and about 3 or 4 weeks of waiting before being hired. Oh, you also have to do an "In-Unit" which consists of working in a unit on Fri, Sat, and Sun (just as you would as a manager) to "try it before you buy it". I thought that was a fantastic plan for prospective employees.

Interview Question – Not really any unexpected questions, just typical interview questions.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – They asked what my current salary was at my place of employment, and I said. They made an offer above what I expected so I went with it.

Unit Manager Trainee Interview

Unit Manager Trainee
Beaumont, TX

I applied in-person and the process took 2 days - interviewed at Waffle House in February 2014.

Interview Details – I met the owner at a job fair. He was friendly, told me about the business, and after a few minutes invited me for an interview. I interviewed with the HR Director, and the owner was present. Both the owner and the HR Director were courteous, polite, and I feel were honest with me about the expectations of the job.

I was not yet offered a position, but was asked for salary requirements. I contacted the HR Director and stated that I would like to terminate the interview process as the job requirements would be too great a strain on my family life.

Interview Question – I didn't expect salary to come up on the first interview, but it did.   View Answer
