    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Waffle House (Houston, TX) in April 2016.

    Interview

    Was brought in and fed lunch of my choice; went over advancement and path to advancement; discussed all benefits and was clearly informed that this would be something I would have to dedicate myself to. Understood. Asked to do more with them before I made a decision and was told that I would actually do a three day in-unit interview, which is exactly what I need to have before making the choice.
    Looking forward to more of the process unfolding; seems like I will be able to make a very informed decision.

    Sales Person Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Moncks Corner, SC
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Waffle House (Moncks Corner, SC) in March 2016.

    Interview

    The interview was short and sweet. I was told then and there whether I was going to be furthered in the hiring process. My best advice is to look like you take care of your appearance and to speak clearly. The second interview was the same and I was sent straight to training. Training wasn't difficult and it won't be for you unless you're shy or soft spoken.
