    On July 25, 2014 my Interview was at 6 p.m.
    My Interview went terrible!! I swear I didn't think I was going to get it.
    Reading stories on here about other people interview, mines was very different.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4 daysinterviewed at White Castle in April 2014.

    Interview Details

    Behavioral interview questions up the wazoo. NOT an easy interview. Don't listen to people who say it is. They probably were brought on by someone who knew them and all they had to do is show up to get the job.

    The interview will be done by the shift manager and possibly the GM as well watching or asking a few questions, and if you're lucky, maybe it'll even be in the backroom and not in the restaurant like at my location. Had I known that, I probably would have declined it in the first place. But that's a story for another day

    At the end, it was 100% clear I didn't get the position as the interviewer didn't even go into availability.

    Interview Questions
    • They open with something simple as "what did you like/dislike about your last job" and then lookout, the behavioral interview question onslaught a cometh! Rather it was almost identical to the last question or not...   Answer Question

    Crew Manager II Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Tinley Park, IL
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Tinley Park, IL
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at White Castle.

    Interview Details

    For White Castle, you start by applying online and completing a 40 minute online questionnaire. Submit it, wait for them to call. I sat with both GM's (I had 2 at the time) and they talked to me and asked me about my previous jobs, transportation, hours I'd be able to work (rotating, fixed, full-time, part-time, etc). I'm not too sure on how interviews are done currently, it all just depends on the interviewer you get. Some GM's can be lazy and just basically do a once over and they'll make their decision based off of that. Or you can get a GM like mine, where she'll basically test you by asking "out-of-the-ballpark" questions. Typically after talking to the GM, they'll give you a pre-hire assessment, (the exact same questionnaire you took online) and they'll call you based on how you did and how your interview went.

    Interview Questions
    • Unexpected: "Are you ready to take the pre-hire assessment?"
      ...I thought I already took it!!
