    Leadership Development Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Spartanburg, SC
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Denny's (Spartanburg, SC) in November 2017.

    Interview

    The entire interview took over a month. I do not live near the headquarters. I was misled that this would be a remote position. I drove 4 hours to the headquarters for the last interview. I was told upon arrival that they would want me to eventually relocate to their awful city. I was then no offered the job because I did not have restaurant experience. Complete waste of time, and confused why I was considered in the first place. They are a mess and will talk about themselves the entire interview.

    Application

    I was sat down with two people. It felt like a good cop bad cop scenario. I was asked questions mostly about my reliability on getting to work. After that it was the usual stuff where they are just trying to feel out your personality, which is important for a waiter.

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Denny's (Kingman, AZ) in June 2018.

    Interview

    Started out well , except I applied for a waitress/server position and one of the first questions were, “I don’t know why but the other manager wants to know if you can hostess” So I told them that’s not what I put a resume in for and they even had me come in for a second interview so I was very excited and positive I would be hired. I mean why would they have me come in for a second interview if I wasn’t being at least considered. But no!! At the end of the second interview they said well we are hiring for a hostess so we’ll give you a call if a position comes open. They waisted my time, money, and gas for NOTHING!!

    Interview Questions

    • Asked quite a few questions. The on that stands out and that I have a problem with was ”will you be willing to be a hostess”   1 Answer
