Easy Interview
Application

I applied online. The process took 1 week. I interviewed at Shake Shack (Los Angeles, CA) in Jul 2022

Interview

I received an automated email asking to setup a phone interview and when I might have availability. One of the store managers emailed me back and scheduled an in-person instead. When I arrived and asked for said manager I was told he was on vacation for two weeks. One of the assistant managers quickly found an interview sheet and had an impromptu and brisk interview that consisted of about 5 "tell me about a time..." questions. I was then told to come back the next day and ask for another manager. I reluctantly returned despite my time having been wasted and had what felt like a positive interview consisting of the same questions as the day prior. No one had my resume or application in hand at any point either interview. I felt fairly positive when I left and never heard from them again. I already had a full time job and this was going to be supplemental income for me so I am certainly qualified to take orders and serve hamburgers. I was articulate and took the interview seriously despite the silliness of the canned questions. They didn't ask me at all about my past or present positions and experience. I'm not sure why I was called for an interview in the first place if they'd already decided. Perhaps due to the GM having been a former HS classmate of mine and he recognized my name. Bu that is pure speculation.

Interview Questions
  • The standard retail level "tell me about a time you..." type questions that don't really give too much insight into anything.
