What to Expect in a Fast Food Interview | Fast Food Interview Questions


Hey everyone! What is up? My name is
Christian Aguilar. Welcome back to my channel.
Someone requested that I do a video talking about how NOT to pass a
fast-food job interview. Today I am going to show you the red flags that you can
receive during a fast-food job interview. Then I am going to tell you how to deal
with certain situations in a fast-food job interview. I have two and a half
years of experience working in the fast-food industry.
I have passed three fast-food job interviews. I even asked my coworker who is a hiring manager in the fast-food industry to help me out with this video.
Give this video a thumb up if you have ever been through a fast-food job
interview, or comment down below if you are looking forward to a fast-food job
interview. Without further ado, let’s get started. Would you like a glass of water? No thank you. Not accepting the water cup can be a huge red flag because the
employer is being courteous. It’s like if you were going to visit a relative, who
you haven’t seen in a very long time, so they decide to cook you a marvelous
dinner. And you end up saying that you are not hungry. You would probably hurt
your relative. Obviously you’re not going to hurt the fast-food job interviewer’s
feelings, but it could come off as rude. So always accept the water cup if the
employer offers you the drink before the fast-food interview begins. Hi my name is
Christian. Nice to meet you. My name is John. I am going to go get the paperwork,
so hold tight then the interview will start shortly. Okay. Sure, thank you. Wow! It’s been like 10 minutes. I think
it’s okay to check my phone. Oh hey! My boo texted me. *texting* Nothin’ just here at a
fast-food job interview waiting for the employer. He’s taking forever. The second red flag can be when you are checking your phone during a fast-food
job interview. Sometimes employers will tell you, “Your interview will start in a
bit. Let me go get some papers real quick, and then we’ll begin.”
Sometimes the fast-food employer is literally in the back just testing your
patience. Or sometimes the restaurant receives a lot of traffic, so the
employer is probably busy sometimes an employer will have you wait there up to
20 minutes. Whatever you do, do not check your phone because they are watching for
that. I encourage you to just sit there patiently, and do not check your phone
because if you check your phone it probably shows that you would be on your
phone during work hours if you were hired, so do not ever check your phone
during an interview. First things first, tell me about yourself. Well my interests
include photography, acting, dancing. I’m studying Communication Studies, and my career goal is to become a TV host. The next red flag that you can receive during a
fast-food job interview is the lack of eye contact. I don’t expect you to have a
staring contest with your employer because that would be so uncomfortable.
Imagine you were having a conversation with a friend, and they couldn’t keep
their eyes off of you, while they were talking. Yeah! That could be a problem.
Look at your employer naturally. You do not have to look at them the entire time,
but you can look at their eyes. Look to the right. Look to the left. Look down a
bit. Then look up. Just try not to spend more than two seconds looking to the
right or looking to the left. Just make your eye contact very natural. Make sure
majority of your interview, you are making eye contact. Eye contact is very
important because you are having an interpersonal conversation. Imagine you
are having a conversation with someone that you love. For example, your crush. Say, you are pouring your heart out, and they’re not looking at you. That could be
a major problem. If the customer gets upset because the
ice-cream machine isn’t working. How would you deal with this customer? Ummmmm, I don’t know. It’s fine. We will move on to the next question. The next red flag that you can receive is not being able to answer a question. I
understand that anxiety and your nerves can get the best of you. But you have to
try your best to answer a question to the best of your ability. Obviously none
of us are perfect, and none of us really expect what to be asked during a
fast-food job interview. Even if someone has credentials in a certain field.
They’re still not going to know what to expect. They are not going to know what
to expect during their career goal’s interview. The best answer that I would
have gave is, “I am so sorry that our ice cream machine isn’t working. Would you
like to try any of our cold drinks?” Employers are looking for employees that
are willing to apologize to a customer, and they are also looking for someone
who can solve the problem. If the customer gets upset because the
ice-cream machine isn’t working. How would you deal with this customer? I would tell them that I’m sorry, then I would probably… I would also ask if they
would like to try any of our old drinks? The next wave flag that you can
receive is looking at the ceiling or looking at the ground for your answers.
You’re probably thinking, “Whoa! I would never do that.” People who are doing this
are probably not aware that they are doing this. If you were to do this during
your fast-food at job interview, it really shows that you are unprepared. You
really just don’t know the answer to your question. Even if you do not know
the answer to your question, like I mentioned before, answer the question to
the best of your ability. Obviously your answer is not in the ceiling or in the
ground, so don’t do that during a fast-food job interview. Finally, why did you choose to work
here? I need a job. I am just trying to make some money this summer because my mom is getting on my butt, and I don’t know what to do.
Oh my gosh! Finally a red flag that you can receive in a fast-food a job interview
is having a bad reason for applying to that company. A company doesn’t want to
know that you are looking for a job because you need the money. Obviously
you need the money. A company wants to know that you show interest in the
company, so you decided to do some research beforehand. a company wants to know that you want to grow with the company even if it isn’t true. Some of
you are probably thinking, “Who would say that?” It happens. Just make sure that you
don’t answer that question with that answer. If I were asked this question, I
would say something like, “Well I did some research online, and I saw that your
company gives up scholarships to high school seniors, undergraduates, and
students who want to fulfill their GED.” An answer like that will definitely help
you out. That is it. I hope all of you enjoyed
