    Server Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Tempe, AZ
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Tempe, AZ
    Application Details

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

    Interview Details

    Very informal, was conducted in a booth during a rush. The manager had a list of questions that were barely touched and focused more on hygiene- which is to be expected in a food server. Interviewing manager was still "working the floor" and unable to completely focus on the situation at hand. It is a serving job and throughout the interview I felt that no one really took anything seriously.

    Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university – 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.

    Reasons 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.
