    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Carl's Jr (North Las Vegas, NV) in March 2016.

    Interview

    Applied online in January 2016 to many of the nearest ones. Finally was called 3/3/16 saying I had an interview that Monday (3/7). Showed up 10 minutes early and was interview by the manager. We sat down at a booth, she had a binder out and was writing all the info I gave her from the Qs she asked. Basically asked about age, availability, and if I had reliable transportation. Was told they were hiring for the new one opening up in 2 weeks. Was told I would be called "later". Never called.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Carl's Jr (Medford, OR) in February 2015.

    Interview

    Had to do two interviews, I think they initially wanted 3, however I cannot recall for sure. The first interview, they lost my application, and resume, so I had to fill out a new one while they interviewed someone else, they were disorganized and running late, when they had no reason to be, as the GM, AM, and other supervisors were working. The second interview, I was hired in the middle of, the AM interviewed me and she really liked my personality, and said she really wanted to hire me and went to talk to the GM for permission. The two interviews were both fairly similar, asking questions about your previous work history and what you would be the thing you wouldn't enjoy doing (cashier, prep, cook) they just try to gauge your competence and whether or not you seem reliable and trustworthy.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Carl's Jr (Montclair, CA) in July 2015.

    Interview

    The interview was extremely brief, it was with the assistant manager. She was extremely nice and down to earth so i warmed up to her quick. The only thing that got me irritated was her "qualifications" necessary for the job. She was looking for someone that primarily focused on friendly service to the clientele. Some one who was "playful with everyone yet serious". And she felt that i wasnt that. She even pointed out how i laughed during the interview and said " you smiled! see that's what im looking for." Haha as if im allergic to smiling. I don't know she was very nice and down to earth but that was not only a bit irritating but weird.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Carl's Jr (Los Angeles, CA) in June 2015.

    Interview

    I applied online then called in to ask if they were hiring. They said they were so I went in 2 times in the next 2 days to talk to the manager. The manager asked me to come in 2 days later for an interview. I came in waited for 5 minutes and then the manager asked me 2 questions. It was less than 5 minutes I kid you not. The main reason it was so short is because there is a huge language barrier. 90% of the staff's first language is Spanish. Meaning if you don't speak Spanish you're gonna be in huge trouble trying to understand each other. After those two questions I was asked to come in 2 days from then to get my paperwork and all that worked out. It was a very fast process I started right away.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Carl's Jr (Diamond Bar, CA) in January 2015.

    Interview

    S. Manager: Store Manager
    D. Manager: District Manager

    I did walk-ins at various fast-food chains in the area.

    (at this point I was inexperienced at getting hired)
    I contacted their S manager and asked if they are currently hiring. I was told by the S manager that they are currently looking for people for that store. Manager told me that they are however out of paper applications and to apply online and to call in when I have finished. I was also told to get a California Food Handler certificate (it was $15 and expires 3 years from date taken.)

    I went home and went on Carl's Jr career section. I found 3 stores in the area. The one I wanted to work at had an 404 error for that store (their store page was down), so I had to wait until they had papers printed (took a week). When they did have it I filled one and applied and was asked by the S manager how much do you want this job. I said I need this job so I can have a steady income and go back to school. S manager stated that they will give it to their D manager and will have to wait for their response.

    4 days later I have not gotten an answer, so I walk in person and asked S manager if they are actively hiring. S manager tells me to hold on and gets me in contact with D manager in person and I got an interview on the spot regarding why I want this job (will add questions to other section). I got other forms to fill and was told to get work shoes and a haircut. My hair was apparently too long when I had already gotten a haircut from shoulder length to an around the ear short hairstyle, but D manager wanted a faded kind of haircut.

    I go back the next day with a new haircut and had to sign some contracts/forms and submit a b/w copy of social security and state ID. I was told to come in tomorrow.

    I arrived at work with black pants and white t-shirt. I was given a small red uniform and cap to wear. I started working right away without really being told my schedule.
