    Shift Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience

    Interview

    Interview was brief and short. I explained my previous employer's and my job functionalities. Was not asked what I would accept as a suitable pay. Took a drug test right after and "technically failed", tested positive for methamphetamine and opioid's. (Blood pressure medication has active ingredient in "meth") and (I'm prescribed vicaden). GM didn't mind saying "just don't bring it to work". I brought my own background check, witch wasn't but could have been fabricated. They were ecstatic that they were saving the company a little money.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    There was no identifiable negotiation phase. It was more or less a date to start. An assumption of mine is that the company refrains as much as possible from discussing or getting on the subject of hourly pay. Regardless of experience or qualifications they want to pay you bare minimum.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Burger King (Pasadena, CA).

    Interview

    The interview process was short and nice. The owner of the franchise asked me a few questions, including schedule and when I could start. At the time, I was going to school near by and I think that is one reason why I got hired on the sport.

    Leadership Development Program Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Miami, FL
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Burger King (Miami, FL) in November 2016.

    Interview

    First interview was a 30 minute on campus interview- behavioral but with weird questions like "what would your previous boss rate you out of 10." Second round was supposed to be a Skype interview but there were technical difficulties and was rescheduled for over the phone. Third interview was Skype case interview about pricing strategies for a new menu item. The audio was so bad, I could barely understand what the interviewer was saying. Others at the super day said the same thing.

    Final round was a super day at the Miami headquarters. There were 20 or so candidates which seemed like a lot compared to other companies' super days. The day started with a business simulation in groups of 4-5 with three assessors observing at the table. The assessors at our table seemed to be barely paying attention, spending most of the time looking at their laptops and on their phones.
    Next was "speed dating" interviews, where we spoke to three different people for 10 minutes each. These interviews were rushed (understandable for the time given) and had some odd questions. My first interview was awkward because the interviewer gave no verbal or facial expressions as I struggled to understand an extremely ambiguous question. That was followed by an office tour and lunch.

    At the end of the day, the group was split in half - one group moved on to interview with executives. The other group was sent home. I was unfortunately in the group that was sent home. They told us our ride was here and it was a taxi that took us back to our hotel. To add insult to injury, we had to pay for the taxi upon arrival. The way the day ended seemed a bit unprofessional.

    Cashier/Crew Member Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Columbia, SC

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took a week. I interviewed at Burger King (Columbia, SC) in November 2016.

    Interview

    It really wasn't a interview. Since there were about eight of us, the manager went over what is expected of us, drug testing/test fee, hygiene, and piercings/tattoos (which cannot be visible), and our availability. After the group, she took us separately and asked our availability again and could we take a pre-employment drug test. And they only conduct background checks for adults, not high school students.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Burger King (Mobile, AL) in November 2016.

    Interview

    After I submitted an application, I was contacted the next day about setting up an I terview that would be conducted the following day. They told me not to cancel the interview or my application would not be considered again. I was early for my interview but when I came into interview someone else was already being interviewed and so I waited. It was past my appointment time before I ever got the chance to be interviewed.
