I applied in-person and the process took 3 days - interviewed at Wendy's in February 2010.

Interview Details One interview, it went pretty easily. If you seem like a nice person and you come off as wanting to work, you're hired.

Interview Question – There weren't many questions, they just ask about you.   View Answer

Negotiation Details – There was no negotiation.

I applied in-person and the process took a day - interviewed at Wendy's in August 2010.

Interview Details First communication coming upon entry to restaurant and requesting application.
Upon completion of application at restaurant, was spoken to on spot.
An in person interview was conducting same day as application. Rather informal interview, especially considering entry level position.

Interview Question – Rather typical interview procedure. Simply inquiring about past experiences, mainly about schooling, since this was a first job.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Very little negotiation, considering this is a simple first job with minimum wage pay.

I applied in-person and the process took 2 days - interviewed at Wendy's.

Interview Details Interviewed with one of the assistant manager, he asked me a bunch of scenario questions such as "has there been a time...", "have you ever.. and why...". He was supposed to write down my answers but he let me write it down myself which i would then tell him what i wrote afterwards. Got interviewed by the GM day after, he just asked things such as why do i want to work here, what hours i want, where i go to school, and where i live. Both interviews were very much like a conversation rather than a interview. I don't think all interviews at Wendy's are like this but i'm glad it did to me because i got the job right after. =)

Interview Question – Has someone ever came up to you and asked for help while you were working on something already, if so what did you do?   Answer Question

Cary, IL (US)

I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Wendy's in February 2014.

Interview Details I received phone/call and e-mail asking me to schedule an interview after I applied online. The manager seemed really eager to talk to me and I thought I would get hired relatively quickly, which didn't happen. Two interviews 3 weeks apart, one with manager and the other with two managers.

Interview Question – None, just common sense situational interview questions.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Minimum wage. No negotiation.

I applied online and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at Wendy's in February 2012.

Interview Details Applied online, got a call a week later and came in the next day. I walked in and was asked about my experience, if I'm more capable of working in the kitchen or with customers. No tough questions, I felt I had the job before I walked in.

Interview Question – Fortunately there wasn't a tough question or an unexpected one. My manager was very up front and didn't beat around the bush.   Answer Question
