    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took a dayinterviewed at Waffle House (Brookhaven, MS) in March 2014.

    Interview

    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.

    Reasons for Declining

    You have to be willing to sacrifice a lot in order to do the job well. Long and sporadic hours. Barely any time left for any type of social life.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took a dayinterviewed at Waffle House (Tempe, AZ) in January 2014.

    Interview

    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.
