    Unit Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Tuscaloosa, AL
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Waffle House (Tuscaloosa, AL) in October 2014.

    Interview

    First I applied for the position, which wasn't difficult. We set up an interview in person at a Waffle house. They gave me a sales pitch for the job and told me all the wonderful things about the company. I liked what i was hearing just the hours sounded awful and the work sounded worse to me. It really isn't a bad job but just wasn't for me. If you have a 4 year degree you can do better. You can read get more detail from another review.
