    Leadership Development Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Spartanburg, SC
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Denny's (Spartanburg, SC) in November 2017.

    Interview

    The entire interview took over a month. I do not live near the headquarters. I was misled that this would be a remote position. I drove 4 hours to the headquarters for the last interview. I was told upon arrival that they would want me to eventually relocate to their awful city. I was then no offered the job because I did not have restaurant experience. Complete waste of time, and confused why I was considered in the first place. They are a mess and will talk about themselves the entire interview.

    Interview Questions

    • Why did they make sewers round? The guy was unprepared and was making up questions because of said unpreparedness.   1 Answer
