    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Wendy's.

    Interview

    Filled out online application with supplemental questions. Was very straight forward. Received a call with a couple of days for interview with the district manager. Interview was approximately an hour of situational questions. Ended with interviewer sharing that there was not even an open GM position and that they do not hire GM's that have not been in the fast food industry and worked their way up.

    General Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Columbus, OH
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Wendy's (Columbus, OH) in August 2011.

    Interview

    Panel Interview. Open-ended situational questions. "Tell me about a time you..." that sort of thing. Pretty standard interview questions. Face-to-face interview. Mine was an internal interview, as I was moving up from a subordinate position. Expect to meet with someone from Human Resources and someone from Operations, typically the Area Director. District Manager might be involved, but might not. There is a background check, but no skills tests, drug test or credit check.

    Negotiation

    Negotiating isn't really possible for an internal position. You might have some leverage salary-wise as an external applicant, but benefits are non-negotiable. Those won't deviate from what everyone else at that level gets.
