Application

I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed 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.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 6 weeksinterviewed at Waffle House.

    Interview

    The Area People Director (APD) for our 28 store area interviewed me first in a local unit. It went well, and she did a majority of the talking as she explained the company and the position. I had to do a second interview with the division manager (manages 9 units); I later met the APD again to complete a personality test to see if I matched what they were looking for. In all, 3 interviews and about 3 or 4 weeks of waiting before being hired. Oh, you also have to do an "In-Unit" which consists of working in a unit on Fri, Sat, and Sun (just as you would as a manager) to "try it before you buy it". I thought that was a fantastic plan for prospective employees.

    Interview Questions

    • Not really any unexpected questions, just typical interview questions.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    They asked what my current salary was at my place of employment, and I said. They made an offer above what I expected so I went with it.

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Waffle House.

    Interview

    The overall process took about two months. I had three separate interviews. The first two interviews were basic and straightforward face to face interviews. My last interview was a three day trail run at various Waffle Houses. Everyone I met during the hiring process were very nice and enthusiastic people.

    Interview Questions

    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.
