    I applied online – interviewed at Wendy's in July 2013.

    Interview Details

    I walked in and asked if they were hiring. An employee pointed me to a sign that how all the information I needed. I applied as soon as I got home. I heard from them a couple of weeks later. I had a one on one interview. I was asked questions that I felt had nothing to do with the job I was applying for. I know they were to get me talking, but I would have rather had less personal questions.

    General Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Columbus, OH
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Columbus, OH
    Application Details

    The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Wendy's in July 2008.

    Interview Details

    Wendy's loves to use situational questions to determine behaviors. Think of a time when you ___ (did something specific.) You'll need to give an answer, and follow up questions will determine what skills you utilized in order to solve the problem. They'll ask how the situation was resolved. It is a panel interview with, typically, the Director of Area Operations, the District Manager, and/or the Human Resource Representative.

    Interview Questions
    • Tell me about a time you had to motivate the crew to meet a certain goal, even though there were obstacles? What skills did you use?   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    Things like location are easier to negotiate than, say, pay. Working close to where you live will save you time and take-home pay in the form of gas money, so try to take solace there. Save any negotiating for the offer or orientation stage.

    Cashier Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Wendy's in March 2013.

    Interview Details

    I applied online on Friday. Then on Tuesday I got a call and got asked if I would be willing to come in for an interview the following day at 10. I went and unknown to me they don't even open until 10. I waited ten minutes and went back. I told an employee I was here for an interview and he told me to wait, that he'll be here any minute now. An hour later (I was close to walking out) he came and of course blamed it on everyone but himself for being late. He was so unorganized, he even misplaced my application. Then after introducing myself he just stops and goes to get a pregnant employee to clean up a ketchup stain on the wall. I didn't even want to continue after that. He was very unprofessional and didn't even make eye contact with me. All he talked about was his family, including his wife's whole life story (literally) and how hard his boss is making him work. And he just seemed like he thought he was above everyone else, like we were all peasants. Needless to say I didn't get the job. Which is fine with me because I don't think I could stand working there anyway.

    Interview Questions
    • All the questions I got (maybe 5 or 6) were situation type questions that you were in. And of course he started off with tell me a little about yourself.   Answer Question

    Interview Details

    It was extremely unprofessional and it was clear that the guy who interviewed me had no idea what he was doing. He was reading the questions off of a card and was stuttering the whole time. After a week I got a call saying I got the job, which I really regret taking. I've only been there a week and I'm looking for a different job right now.
