    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Tropical Smoothie Cafe (New York, NY) in August 2016.

    Interview

    Applied online, eventually calling to check on the application process. The manager then offered me an interview the next day!
    The interview was early in the morning but I showed up 20 minutes early. The manager was already at the front desk and the first thing that greeted me were the employees smiles!
    I had a great vibe about the place.
    We sat down filled out and went over some paper work, asked me a few questions about the my work history and availability, asked him about hours.
    Concluded with a formal offer and I gladly accepted.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    There wasn't a negotiation for pay. I made a little more at my previous job but they had little to no advancement opportunities after. This job starts at the bottom but has many opportunities to move up in the job and in pay!

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Tropical Smoothie Cafe (Tuscaloosa, AL) in July 2016.

    Interview

    I applied online and was called for an interview two weeks later. I was interviewed by the manager and assistant manager in-store. The interview went smoothly and they called me back two days later for a working interview. Neither of the managers were present so I worked with a team member for the interview. I was told to come back the following Monday. When I arrived, the manager was there and gave me a tshirt. I helped make smoothies and acted as a runner. I was told that I could leave and was called into the office before I left. The manager spoke with me and informed me that there were not enough hours available for the current workers so they would keep my application of file and give me a call when they needed me. He told me that they would call me to pick up my check during the week although I have yet to receive a call and it's been four months.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Tropical Smoothie Cafe (Norfolk, VA) in June 2016.

    Interview

    I recently (Sunday 06/19/2016) had an interview with the location at Tidewater drive in Norfolk Virginia and I was told that they would make a final decision on the following Thursday (06/23/2016). So when I called on Thursday I was told that the manager didn't work that day to call back on Sunday (06/26/2016), so I did and when I spoke to the manager she told me to call back on either Monday (06/27/2016) or Tuesday (06/28/2016) and then they would have a final decision. So I called back on Tuesday and the manager was busy which I can understand so they told me to call back in an hour. And when I called back the manager she was "in the bathroom" and I was told she was going to give me a call when she was out of the bathroom. I understand people get busy or have to use the restroom or whatever. But don't waste my time by telling me to call back tomorrow every time I call. If I had any way to contact the franchise owner then I would tell them about my negative experience with this manager and how unprofessional she was with this whole process.
