I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Waffle House in May 2013.
Interview Details – Went in asked for a application. They handed me a yellow paper in which i had to call for a personality test and phone interview. I called then i had to give my confirmation number to the manager she was nice and friendly. She said i will definately hire u. But first we have to do a backround check. That took a week !! 7 days!! She called and said now you have to meet with the district manager at 6:30am the next morning!!! The dm asked me three questions did i have a car, do i mind working all shifts , do i mind workin holidays. She honestly could of called me and asked me these question instead of draggin me out of bed at 6 am. About three days later the manager called and said i was hired and that i needed to go to training.

Very Easy Interview
I applied through college or university and interviewed at Waffle House.
Interview Details – The process is pretty straightforward. You meet with the Area People Director and another manager and go through 2-3 interviews. They always offer you the job as long as you're not completely stupid and then ask you to comeback for a trial evaluation week. They promise you 38k guaranteed with avg salary being 45-55k and quick advancement opportunities. Having talked to a unit manager, the salary is about right but you are going to work 60-80 hours a week which breaks down to $9.13 -$12.18hr minimum. You will work 6 days on, 2 off and are expected to do things like cleaning bathrooms and taking out trash and checking in 3 times a week at 9 pm to close out registers.

Reason for Declining – As someone with a degree, the job is degrading and really had nothing to do with my major (which I enjoyed) . That being said, if you can suck it up and bust your balls for 2 years, you can make pretty good money.
