Shreveport, LA

I applied online and the process took 2 days - interviewed at Whataburger in July 2014.

Interview Details – I filled out an application online within the next day I received a call. On the phone the manager was basically asking me questions about my current job then she called me in for an interview the same day. When I got there I had to fill out a paper application. The interview was simple. The question that we're asked was mostly about your personality. Then the day after my interview I received a call & they told me I was offered the position & to come in to fill out some paperwork.

Interview Question – Describe yourself in one word and why.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Don't be nervous. Just be yourself. Talk clearly. Communicate with the manager. But sell yourself good enough so the manager would want you.

I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at Whataburger in May 2013.

Interview Details – Walked in early and told cashier about my scheduled interview. The cashier gave me a cup to get a free drink while waiting for manager.
First manager asked me to fill out 2 forms (personality quiz and standard paper application) and asked him when I was done. Couple minutes later the interview started and was asked about my past experience, few behavioral questions, and generally manager telling me about the position and what to expect. Manager seemed interested, told to stay put until he asked the General Manager for second interview. Waited about 5 minute or so, General Manger said the same things as the previous Manager told. Got the job on the spot and was asked to wait for a call back for date to do paperwork.
