    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4 days - interviewed at Zaxby's in April 2014.

    Interview Details

    I was interviewed by the assistant manager. He's a really chill finny guy. Honest and hard working. The interview was pretty chill for the most part. He didn't grill me he just asked me a question and I answered it. On one question I answered his question with a question and he asked another question to help me understand what he was getting at. It was my most pleasant interview to date.

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Zaxby's.

    Interview Details

    It was a three interview process. First, I was asked a few questions and given the job description. He emailed me a file containing everything on the menu and I had to study it to take a menu test on it the next time I came in. The menu test was a 20 question test on a computer. The third interview was a few more questions, then all about paper work.

    Interview Details

    Really easy and friendly interview, all I had to do was answer easy questions about why I wanted to work for the company, ect. The only hiccup was the dreaded, "greatest weakness", which while fighting the urge to wisecrack and say "fire, bullets, and boobs", I lobbed a "my perfectionism" hail-mary, to which he replied "well, as a fast food cook, you wont have the time to be perfect." Interception in the end zone, boo. But I got the job, yay! Then I saw he circled a 3 out of 5 for my appearance, boo, lol.
