Interview

I felt like I was pretty much running the interview. The general manager was more like someone I was interviewing maybe because I have more experience and the restaurant business and he does just my opinion.

    Shift Leader Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Monroe, WA

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Five Guys Burgers & Fries (Monroe, WA) in February 2015.

    Interview

    The interview process was like any other in a food industry. It was one on one with the General Manager. Asked simple questions about the job and what your goals are. It helps if you have food handling history. They require you to watch videos before your "on the job training" which you most likely will never receive as employees are too busy to help you. No one starts as a Shift Leader as that is the next phase in the promotion process, you will start as a crew member and will be on one position for a week or two til you master that.

    Interview Questions

    • Are you over 18?
      Any experience handling or preparing food?
      How well do you work as a team?
      What is your goal with the company, where do you see yourself 2 years from today?
      How do you handle an upset customer?   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    There was no negotiation. They start everyone as a crew member, and on one position that they are looking for; Grill, Fries, Counter/POS, Back Of House.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Five Guys Burgers & Fries (New York, NY) in August 2015.

    Interview

    I came into the main location for their NY headquarters and waited to be seated.
    After waiting for 5 minutes I was asked to come with a man whom I would later know as the district manager. He asked me questions about leadership, workplace performance and what I felt I could contribute. I answered all his questions, made him laugh with funny workplace anecdotes and was told more than twice I would be hearing from them. I did hear from them, almost immediately and was offered the "Manager-in-training" position, which I accepted.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Five Guys Burgers & Fries.

    Interview

    Applied online. Got a call to interview a few days later. I went to the location listed in the title and that was in the job description. Arrived and was told that a separate location nearby was the place I was supposed to go to instead, yet they made no mention of that in the listing or during the initial call. The manager there interviewed me anyways and was extremely nice. I later went to the "correct" location. They had me fill out a paper application in-person and interviewed me there. Hiring manager there said that the location mishap is because they use the other store's location in the listing since they are so close together, but again, failed to tell me that at any point before.

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Five Guys Burgers & Fries in July 2013.

    Interview

    The interview I had was part of a job fair that was being held for Shift Leaders. I went in and was greeting by several Five Guys managers (DM's and GM's, I believe). After filling out the application, I was immediately interviewed by a DM. He asked basic questions about me, about what I could contribute to the company and whatnot. He was impressed with me so he got another DM to interview with me who asked most of the same questions. She also really like me so she got her boss to come over and talk to me and he also thought I should be hired. All three were very nice and professional. The whole process took less than an hour. Furthermore, I got a call that night with a job offer.
