    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Wendy's.

    Interview Details

    I applied online on a Tuesday and called the next day and set up an interview. The day after I had the interview. By the weekend I was in training. I met with the then shift manager. He was very friendly. I told him it was my first job and he asked me when I was available. I got the job. It was really simple and easy. At the time I couldn't drive so he asked if they could provide a ride could I work 2nd shift and I was fine with that. I was very friendly and enthusiastic, and smiled a lot. I was paid more than the minimum at $7.70 because he had a good feeling about me, that I would do well. At the end of the interview I remember he said "Just keep smiling, the smile is what got you the job." Real simple

    Interview Details

    If they tell you to come in for an interview, dress moderately nice. You don't have to be decked out in a suit and tie however a pair of black pants and a nice shirt (no logos/writing) would do just fine. SHOWER before you come, and brush your teeth, look clean. The interview takes probably 15 minutes, however we do get busy so you may have to wait for a bit in the beginning. DO NOT show up high/drunk, that is an immediate NO.

    Interview Questions
    • How would you handle an angry customer? Are you very organized? What are 3 skills//weaknesses? Are you more of an introvert or an extrovert (meaning do you work well by yourself of with others)   View Answer

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Wendy's.

    Interview Details

    I didn't get past a phone interview on this position - after several weeks and email follow-ups with HR (who was unresponsive), the position was cancelled. The interview itself wasn't difficult, but it was a bit frustrating that no one could take the time to write a quick "thank you for your interest, but we have cancelled this position" email.

    Interview Questions
    • None, really. Standard "tell us about yourself" phone interview.   Answer Question

    Interview Details

    Got a call for an interview 2-3 days after I submitted my app, decision took 2-3 weeks after the interview. They ask a fair amount of personal questions. They also seem to prefer it if you are going to stay a year or longer so they don't have to hire someone else after six months or so.
