    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took a week. I interviewed at A&W Restaurants (Flint, MI) in February 2014.

    Interview

    I met with the manager and assistant manager, both seemed very nice. They asked me questions about previous work experience, sports/vacations/ext that would interfere with work schedule, how would you handle a situation with an unhappy customer, why do you want to work here, things of that nature. Overall not too difficult of an interview, some questions were a little tough but besides that. It was a great interview experience and I got hired on the spot, it was a wonderful experience!

    Difficult Interview

    Team Member Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at A&W Restaurants in June 2016.

    Interview

    Very informal. Asked the usual: if I preferred part-time or full-time; whether I was legally allowed to work in Canada; if I had a driver's license; if I was married and had kids (later on I realised I could have not answered this). Later on the uniforms and online training module were discussed. Took us about 20 minutes total.

    I realized after the interview that some of the questions were a bit discriminatory.
