Interview Details – interview process was very laid back. Being that this in my first job I don't have much to compare it to.
Negotiation Details – No negotiating took place; but I am sure it doesn't hurt to ask
Accepted Offer – Interviewed in Glendale, AZ Jun 2012 – Reviewed Jun 7, 2012
Interview Details – I arrived there about ten minutes early but it took about 35 mins to get an actual interview. I thought that was pretty unprofessional of the manager. And believe me, she isn't the first to use her mother in law as an excuse to be late. It was hardly an interview apparently she was already looking to hire me. But the place looked like they would hire anyone. I got hired full time so I believed she was understaffed.
Negotiation Details – Should've negotiated but didn't.
Accepted Offer – Interviewed in Miami, AZ Jul 2010 – Reviewed Jun 1, 2012
Interview Details – The interview was very simple. I don't even know if it would really qualify as an interview. Basically just sat down with my application and went over what I had put down. Talked about my availability and what my preferred hours would be. Talked about other experience I had. And the most was just conversation really. Very easy and simple.
Negotiation Details – None, you take what they offer or leave it.
Declined Offer – Interviewed in Westlake, OH Mar 2010 – Reviewed May 2, 2012
Interview Details –
I turned in my application two weeks prior to recieving a phone call asking for an interview later in the week. I went there, and then was told that there were no spots available for me at the moment. I returned to my job search, and the day after being offered the job that I did end up taking, they called me back and asked me to work for them. But I chose a movie theater over them.
The interview itself was quite casual, in fact, a bit too casual. The very bulbus-looking repulsive manager took me to the back of the store and asked me a couple casual questions while not looking or acting very enthralled about it all. He dismissed me without any answer, leaving that for a phone call the next day informing me of the met capacity of employees in that particular dining establishment.
Reason for Declining – I feel like it would be a horrid, impersonal place to work. But i have no experience in that arena, so I will let that one lie. Plus, a job at the movie theater seemed exciting, and although a little cliche, interesting, as it did turn out to become.

Accepted Offer – Interviewed in Martin, TN Jan 2011 – Reviewed Apr 20, 2012
Interview Details – I applied to wendy's twice before i made contact with a hiring official. i talked to a friend who said they could get me a job and i applied using the friend as a reference. the manager told me to come in and he would interview me. he interviewed me once. at the time it seemed like a nice place to work, but i could tell that the managers seemed a bit harsh. if you are trying to get a job at wendy's, dont put your life story on your application. the hiring managers dont care that much, it is mostly about your connections and who you know.

Negotiation Details – there was no negotiation. this was my first (public) job and i generally knew nothing about the fast food work environment. the deal was that there were certain duties that had to be fulfilled from my position upon hiring and if i did not want to do them, they did not need me.

Interview Details – The Manager Called me and asked if I could come in on that day. I said yes. I went in and the interview consisted of a Background Check, Interview, and assessment such as "Describe one time you received negative feedback well, Name one time you helped somebody" etc. Asked if you can perform the job skills. Also verified application. Said they will run a background check. Called back next day with a job offer.
Negotiation Details – Expect Minimum Wage or a few cents more. Not a lot of room to negotiate unless you hold a college degree or are a manager.
