    Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Anonymous Employee
    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.

    Interview Questions
    • When asked "why should you be hired at waffle house" there was a rude tone and asked very differently then the 3 girls before me and the guy after me. Not only was the guy rude to me and pretty much didn't like when I said "I can work any shift but Mondays due to Volunteer hours." I was looked out rudely and the guy who was there also to be interview made comments on what I said.   View Answer

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Albany, GA
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Waffle House in May 2013.

    Interview Details

    I interviewed with 2 division managers, the area people director, and finally the area vice president. Was offered a position within a few days. I was desperate for income after I returned home from basic training. But if I would have thought long and hard about it, I would've probably declined and found something that was better suited and more conveient

    Interview Questions
    • Most questions were related to whether or not you personally think you are a fir for the Waffle House culture. Expect the usual..... but at the end of the day, if you make yourself look good, it's not hard to get hired because they are constantly in the need of new manager trainees   View Answer
    Negotiation Details
    no negotiation. But do negotiate. I started at $32,000 and that's not nearly enough for some of the stuff they had me do
