I applied in-person and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Zaxby's.

Interview Details – I submitted my resume to the store and filled out their application, they called me back within 1 week for an interview. The interview was with the GM and he asked me a few typical questions like "what can you bring to our store?", etc. I was hired on the spot after the interview.

Interview Question – None of the questions were difficult really. Very typical   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – No negotiation. They did talk about advancement, but it really was more about if they liked you personally or not whether they would spend time "training" you for a better job.

Cook Interview

Cook
Lenoir City, TN

I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at Zaxby's in January 2013.

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.

Interview Question – What is your greatest weakness?   View Answer

Negotiation Details – No negotiating a minimum wage job, kids.

Crew Member Interview

Crew Member
Tullahoma, TN

I applied online - interviewed at Zaxby's in October 2013.

Interview Details – I applied online and got a call back a month or so later. I was interviewed by three different people and each interview went by pretty quickly. I felt like it went well with the first two but the third one started bad as soon as the interviewer sat down. I could tell right way the guy was not interested in me and the tone that was set made me feel discouraged. I fumbled through his questions and I could tell right then and there I was not getting the job. He handed me a little math quiz to do and I finished that quickly. He then took it back and told me they'd get back to me soon. They of course never did.

Interview Question – "If money wasn't an issue, what would you want to do with your life?"   Answer Question

Cashier Interview

Cashier
Athens, GA

I applied in-person and the process took a day - interviewed at Zaxby's in May 2012.

Interview Details – I filled out an application in store, and was interviewed on the spot by the general manager. I was offered the position right away. The manager made the interview more conversational, which helped it move right along. He seemed to have something very specific he was looking for (i.e. friendly, smiling, out-going).

Interview Question – The questions were typical of interview for customer service positions in the food industry.   View Answer

Negotiation Details – My education allowed me to negotiate a higher salary. They were only receptive because of another employees recommendation that I be hired. Their pay is pretty standard and most of the time you either take it or leave it.
