    Unit Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 6 weeksinterviewed 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 Questions
    • 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.

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took a dayinterviewed at Waffle House in March 2014.

    Interview Details

    The interview was quick and to the point, I was called in the same day I applied. The benefits were metioned and it was made clear that I would be compensated for the wages I did not make in tips, which is important to me since I had bills and needed to further my education. I was called about 30 minutes after the interview and asked if I could work the next day. No drug test was given which I found strange.
