    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Cook Out (Dickson, TN) in September 2017.

    Interview

    One quick phone interview and several emails then sent to the cookout for interview. She didn't seem interested and didn't even let me finish my paper application. Had a attitude and just stuck on herself.

    Store Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Clarksville, TN

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Cook Out (Clarksville, TN).

    Interview

    Easy enough process. Problem was they misrepresented what they were hiring for in the help wanted ad on Craigslist. They advertised for a Manager which was actually for Asst. Manager. Offered wage advertised was $40-70K. Actually was $12/hr. Stated you were required to work 52.5 minimum but should work 60+ hours to get close to the $40K. Wanted you to work for weeks in each area including dishwashing, cook and counter and "test out" of each area. Total scam job. Would never start employment on such a total misrepresentation. Would not want to find out what else they are not truthful about.

    General Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Winston-Salem, NC

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Cook Out (Winston-Salem, NC) in November 2016.

    Interview

    The interview was in a building set up for classroom education. It started with a presentation and then you break out into small groups. It was very different for me being from the corporate world. I submitted the information with resume and felt it was a waste of my time and time off from work. I was almost offended when I went to small group with the way it was presented.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Cook Out (Riverdale, GA) in November 2016.

    Interview

    attended a presentation along with 15 other people. Then a one on one interview with two gentleman. I gave a great interview and I can tell they were impressed. That was three weeks ago and I haven't heard from them. Prior to the interview, as I got out my car, I heard one of the interviewers on his phone saying, "the management needs to get younger." Perhaps that's why I haven't heard anything.
