    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Five Guys Burgers & Fries (Dallas, TX) in January 2016.

    Interview

    First came a phone interview which lasted about 40 minutes. Then there were 2 in person interviews. All the interviews were very professional. Each of those lasted about 45 minutes. I was asked the normal questions about my work history, why I left my last job, why I wanted to work for 5 Guys Burgers. I was then called back for another interview with the Area Manager which lasted about 40 minutes. The Area Manager was 30 minutes late for the interview that I was 45 minutes early for. I was there for a total of 1 hour and 50 minutes. I drove a total of 400 miles to different locations for the interviews. I was never given a call back to let me know either way on being hired or not. Very unprofessional. Area Manager being late for an interview is very unprofessional. I think I dodged a bullet on this one. I can only imagine how they must treat their employees.
