Dunkin’ Donuts Cashier Interview Video
Interviewer: Please describe your job title and primary duties.
Dunkin’ Donuts Cashier: I primarily worked as a cashier. Once a week, I would have to come in and prepare the doughnuts, and make sure everything was stocked, and that was a 5:30 shift that every employee had to do. So, that was a once a week thing. For the most part, I worked the cash register, made simple drinks while the managers typically stood in the back and made the more complicated drinks, so that way people weren’t walking away from the register, but primarily being a cashier.
Interviewer: What was the work environment like?
Dunkin’ Donuts Cashier: It was really fast-paced, really busy. Normally I worked the morning, so everyone was coming in to get their morning coffee, so it’s very fast-paced. If you get stressed out really easily, it might be kind of hard, but I really enjoyed it. Everyone I worked with was really great, they were all really fun.
Interviewer: Please describe a typical day as an employee.
Dunkin’ Donuts Cashier: Normally, you would get in, clock in the back, check in with the manager, and they would update you on how today’s been going so far. Then, you would check what baked goods need to be replenished. For instance, a cashier would switch off with workers at the register at that point. Then, depending on how long I worked, I would take a break, come back to the register normally.
Interviewer: How would you describe the application and interview process?
Dunkin’ Donuts Cashier: It was a paper application, and you have your normal stuff, like references, where you went to school, three references, and then just basic information. Then, I headed into the manager, where I did an interview on the spot.
Interviewer: What questions did the interviewer ask during the job interview?
Dunkin’ Donuts Cashier: Like I said, he gave me an interview on the spot. I had to come back the next day, and it was really simple, they asked where I worked before, how well I work with people, had I ever worked register, really basic questions. It was only about a ten minute interview. They wanted to know your availability, they wanted someone could work more than 15 hours a week. They just wanted to know if I was good with people. That was something that was really important.
Interviewer: What other advice would you give to a job seeker looking to gain employment?
Dunkin’ Donuts Cashier: Take initiative when you ask for the application. When you fill it out, go in and ask for the manager, give them the application, and make it seem like you’re interested in working. Just be personable, talk, try not to be quiet, because they kind of want people who are friendly, and maybe a little outgoing.
