Unit Manager Trainee Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in Atlanta, GA
No Offer
Negative Experience
Easy Interview

Application

I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Waffle House (Atlanta, GA) in April 2017.

Interview

I applied at my campus job fair and received a call the next day. I interviewed the next week with the recruiter who contacted me and a few days later a DM. About a week later I had to take the assessment which takes about an hour and a half. The recruiter said they would be in touch in the next couple of days and I never heard from them again. I'm not upset about not getting an offer but I feel that if you make it to the last step in the interview process they at least owe you the courtesy of a phone call or email.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Waffle House (Lake Charles, LA) in June 2016.

    Interview

    Telephone contact led to in person interview where job was explained well. Very personal questions regarding not just illegal but legal drugs. Kind of put off by this at first interview.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Waffle House (Norfolk, VA) in April 2016.

    Interview

    The interview process was about a month due to upper management being on vacation but after that it was brief. I interviewed with the Regional Manager, Area People Director and also the Senior Vice President and they were very pleasant. Overall, I've enjoyed the interview process and today is my last day of my In-Unit training upon receiving an offer of employment.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Waffle House in January 2016.

    Interview

    The first step is the telephone interview. They ask many questions to find out about your background and interest.

    If they like you, you will be invited to a formal interview. Dress the part!!! The interview will more than likely be near a waffle house. Be aware this interview might be longgggggggg. If it is that's a good sign; chances are they like you.

    Last step will be a three day in unit. It is a paid interview. You will perform every position and work with the employees in that unit.

    Within a week you will get a call confirming if they want you to be part of their management team or not.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Waffle House.

    Interview

    Multi-step: 1) meet with Division Manager 2) Meet with Division and Area Vice President.

    The management is focused on finding out if you are a team player with an entrepreneurial spirit. I enjoyed conversing with management.

    The process is very straight-forward. The Division Manager screens potential candidates for decent ones and then forwards his findings to the AVP. The AVP (I suppose) is the one who determines if another interview is in order. It is pretty much a numbers game for them. They want to find as many UM trainees as possible that are committed to this line of work and go from there. Part of their bonuses depends on UM trainees hired.

    Interview Questions

    • It was years ago when I worked for the company but they asked things about motivation, self-discipline, leadership, following instructions, etc... They want to hire pit bulls, i.e., managers with a hard-nose to get the job done yet still listen to management.   1 Answer

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Waffle House (Atlanta, GA) in June 2015.

    Interview

    I filled out an application online for the unit manager position. The next day I received a response from HR to schedule a face-to-face interview at a local Waffle House. I arrived 30 minutes early and the HR rep arrived on time. She was accompanied by a People Director in training so the interview was 2 to 1. The process was very easy going and the questions were not difficult because I am familiar with the waffle house brand.
