    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Friendly's Ice Cream (Hockessin, DE) in June 2015.

    Interview

    It was very brief. I was interviewed and hired in the same day. I was sat down in a one on one setting with the manager. Extremely informal, and the most important part of the entire process was my availability and people skills. As long as you show them that you are not a zombie and that your entire week is available for them to fill, you have yourself a job.

    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.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Friendly's Ice Cream (Bel Air, MD).

    Interview

    Walked in, asked if they were hiring, took application home and filled it out, returned on a Tues night at 9pm with application, general manager was there and interviewed me, hired on the spot -- advice: ask when GM will be in and speak with him/her... Otherwise your application will never be viewed by anyone

    Interview Questions

    • I don't remember the GM asking any unexpected questions, or even any difficult questions. Basically just the routine, Have you been fired from a previous job? Do you have experience? Are you a criminal? sort of questions.   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Friendly's Ice Cream (Oswego, NY) in December 2013.

    Interview

    I applied via their website after seeing an ad on Craigslist. I filled it out on a Sunday night, and received a call Monday afternoon to set up an interview for Tuesday afternoon.

    I went in, had to wait for the general manager to be done doing something else. After asking me a half dozen times how I was, we began the interview. Very basic questions, about your background and education. I told him that I loved being a server and felt that it was the right job for me. I also told him that I am an unemployed free lance makeup artist (which may be the reason I had no offer) He basically told me "You can say you're a good server, but I can't tell that from having an interview". Ok then.

    After all of this, he asked me if I had any questions for him. I asked one question, "How many hours are you hiring for?" He the proceeded to go off on a 10 minute tangent about chicken sandwiches, winter time, college students, how they train servers and how many servers they have at that location.

    He never made eye contact with me, checked the time on several occasions and doodled on my application while I was trying to speak to him. Extremely unprofessional.
