    Interview Details

    First, you apply online. Then, you call the store to make sure they receive it. Then, the hiring manager sets up an interview date with you. Afterwards, he/she decides whether to hire you or not. If the hiring manager decides to hire you then he/she goes online to hire you and it shows up on your online application. Immediately after that you must call and the hiring manager tells you when you shall start.

    Interview Questions

    Crew Member Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Wendy's.

    Interview Details

    If you want to get hired at Wendy's or any fast food really here is what you do.

    1. Do not turn in an application between 11-2, 5-7 or if it is extremely busy. Those are rush periods and it looks bad. Also don't get an application in the drive thru, that's just lazy.

    2. When you turn in your application be wearing clean clothes and comb your hair. If you're a guy i'd suggest shaving or at least shaving before the actual interview. You're not allowed to have a beard and they want a "clean cut" appearance. I know some managers that won't hire you just based on that.

    3, Ask for the hiring manager when turning in the app and shake their hand. Follow up 3-5 days later in person or on the phone. Trust me, persistence pays off

    4. They will ask questions such as; why do you want to work at blank ____? How would you handle an angry customer? Do you have any experience? What shifts are you available to work? What are you're future goals/ambitions?

    5. If you have experience in food service elaborate on all the awesome things you did there. Like making food, being helpful to customers, taking the initiative to get things done. If you don't have food experience, tell them how you love working hard, learning and teaching new things, are able to adapt to any situation and stay cool in stressful situations.

    Negotiation Details
    There is no negotiating on pay. I was able to get sunday's off for the period of time i worked there because I said I wouldn't work them due to the bus schedule.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Wendy's in December 2013.

    Interview Details

    I filled out an application on Snagajob.com, and I received a call from the manager within hours of filling it out. We set up a interview for 2 days later. I arrived to the interview early. I finally met the manager who was interviewing me. The interview lasted about 10-15 minutes. She told me she'd call me back the next day. I didn't hear from her. I was worried, called the establishment back only to find out she left. Bummer. I called the next day, she was busy and said to call back two days later. Frustrated, I didn't call back. Three days I was thinking to myself my interview must've been bad, and I wasn't offered the job. Ten minutes later she calls saying I was offered the job. :) I was very excited and had orientation the next day. My advice is be yourself in the interview. I have no experience im fast food, this is my first job. I love the environment so far. The workers seem friendly.

    Negotiation Details
    No negotiation. I was fine with minimum wage. :)

    I applied online. The process took 4 daysinterviewed at Wendy's.

    Interview Details

    The interview was short and sweet. It only took about 10-15 minutes total. My interviewer basically just read questions off of a card the whole time. At the end, they will give you a description of the job and its duties to read and ask you if you are capable of performing them. They will then ask if you have any questions (Ask questions! My interviewer loved the fact that I did and said that usually applicants have nothing to ask). Afterwards, my interviewer informed me that she would be interviewing other candidates and would call me back within the week. I interviewed on Monday and was called backed on Thursday. The interviewer informed me that my background check was all clear and asked if I would still like the position. From there, I was sent to orientation to complete my training and the rest is history.
