    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Friendly's Ice Cream (Keene, NH).

    Interview

    Applied on line. received email scheduling phone interview with HR, which went well...scheduled interview with area director had to travel 100 miles round trip, interview went well. Did background check. Scheduled interview with RVP 200 mile round trip...interview was canceled day before..phone interview scheduled with RVP..he never called or canceled. it was 4th July weekend so couldn't get hold of HR until following week. Then was told that some reorganization had happened and position was not open anymore and RVP was reassigned. scheduled interview with new RVP in local store so no traveling this time...day before canceled again, unless I was willing to drive to Mass. next morning (250 miles round trip) then she could see me. Company seems unorganized and has no regards for prospective employees time or money involved in the hiring process. It makes me wonder how they actually treat there employees once they are hired. Maybe this has been a blessing in disguise. I have decided to move on and have interviews scheduled with several of their competitors.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Friendly's Ice Cream (Camillus, NY) in June 2014.

    Interview

    I sat at a table with the manager and was asked a few questions about my past experience. It was more of an informal interview. The manager just wants to see your personality and whether you would be a good fit. I would just recommend to just be yourself. If you can socialize and communicate with people well and are happy spirited, there should not be a problem.
