    Clean Up Associate Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at In-N-Out Burger (Torrance, CA) in December 2017.

    Interview

    I applied online and process took more thank 2 weeks. The interview went good and great flow of conversation. I answered carefully and always keep my posture good. The interviewer said that there were 71 applicants that he send to all which is way too much for just one position. I prepared for an interview and he said by Friday we call someone in if not I didn’t or anyone. I didn’t receive a callback that no matter how much preparation I’ve done and very enthusiast for this position it’s still no results. I guess landing a job is just pure luck with how much preparation there should be. I also asked questions on the end and still with all these same results.

    Store Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Lodi, CA

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at In-N-Out Burger (Lodi, CA).

    Interview

    Applied online, it helps if you actually know a few people who already work there so they can Help expedite the whole process. The interview process was great, quick and easy and the managers loved me. They really want you to be yourself and I actually felt comfortable talking with them and answering questions. Don’t remember too much about what they asked but I know that the first interview was about your work experience and the second interview was more personal and they wanted to get to know YOU. Except I never received a job offer because an employee threatened to quit if I was hired (petty lol). The whole process was rather quick and I had two interviews within the span of about 3 or 4 days!

    Store Associate Interview

    Anonymous Employee

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at In-N-Out Burger in September 2017.

    Interview

    I applied online and 4 days later received an email saying to attend their interview event at 10AM (basically when they opened while it wasn't busy yet). I was super nervous and didn't know but interviewed with the Store Manager, he was nice so I got more comfortable and he just asked me questions about school and volunteer (since I didn't have work experience). Overall it was an easy interview, he just wanted to get to know me. I also asked him a couple of questions too. He then gave me a 2nd interview on the spot and I agreed to come in the next day. I came in the same time and was supposed to interview with a different manager but she wasn't working on that day so another manager interviewed me and I had met him yesterday too so we recognized each other. In this interview I was expecting much harder situational questions but he asked me pretty much the same questions as the Store Manager did. In the end I asked him a couple of questions and then he said that I deserved the job and hired me on the spot. He also said that the Store Manager that interviewed me at first liked me as well. Overall in both interviews I remained calm and enjoyed talking to them since they were so kind! I shared a laugh with both managers so I believe that made them really like me. Also, whenever I spoke about the company I made sure to sound passionate and somewhat personal. Just show them how friendly, easy-going, and genuine you are also how professional and willing you are to learn. Be open-minded, smart about your answers, and be confident! Good luck and don't be so nervous! Remember that In-N-Out is known for having friendly service so always keep in mind that the interviewers there are understanding and really nice! Also, ALWAYS ASK THE INTERVIEWERS QUESTIONS!* (I'm pretty sure this is what made me stand out)
