Shift Manager Interview

Easy Interview

Application

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Five Guys Burgers & Fries (Tallahassee, FL).

Interview

You have to go through a 3-5 day process of getting you "Burger Associates" which consists of multiple, very descriptive videos of how to cook and assemble burgers, fries, and french fries. Then study to get your ServSafe. One that is finished you will be reviewed by one of the corporate district managers during a shift to see if you can cook, delegate, and deal with customers properly. Once this long process is over you receive your red shirt (manager shirt).

Interview Questions

  • I cannot remember if there were any trick/unexpected questions   Answer Question

Negotiation

Don't be afraid to push your salary, or hourly rate and MAKE sure you get it! Meaning check you clock slips, and check the online site where you can check how much you get paid.

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Five Guys Burgers & Fries (South Seattle, WA) in February 2015.

    Interview

    Quick, painless, not really a very thorough process, but they are more interested in what you've done in the past that's somewhat related. I will add that after working here, this job is not for the lazy, slow or weak people! This is a very work hard kind of place, but of course, that's if you're actually doing what needs to be done, and not just standing there.

    Negotiation

    When I applied I already had two years experience in supervision. I was also hired immediately. So my offer was a lower wage to get ready for the Five Guys management certification and learning how to do the job there. I got to negotiate my hours and was able to get 40 hours consistent as a full time manager. I was also promised two opening shifts, two closings, and one mid shift every week.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Five Guys Burgers & Fries (Cinnaminson, NJ) in October 2013.

    Interview

    The DM Terry called me in for an interview, which was great and formal and asked alot of great questions and was extremely friendly, The second interview was a horror show! The lady who they had me speak to was extremely immature asked questions on loyalty about her cause she doesnt have the love her associates. During the interview processes I have seen her whole staff grabbing my resume passing it back and forth while saying remarks with me sitting no more then feet away, also keep in mind the women performing the interview was well aware of everything.

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Five Guys Burgers & Fries (San Jose, CA) in August 2015.

    Interview

    Very simple, experience is desired by the manager. As someone who later went on to interview people for crew positions and manager positions, it's a matter of smiling, being presentable and giving simple examples--don't go over the top and say this is your dream job.
