Shoney’s Interview Questions & Tips

Face-to-Face Interviews

Job seekers submit hiring requests at a Shoney's location of choice to gain employment. Managers tend to contact applicants within a day of submitting hiring forms, especially when job vacancies arise. Candidates vying for hourly positions face an easy hiring process, with interviews generally taking on conversational formats. Hiring managers usually probe for simple information like reasons for applying and availability. Entry-level applicants usually secure employment after one face-to-face interview with a restaurant manager. Applicants should wear business-casual attire to interviews, arrive on time, and greet the interviewer with a smile and handshake.

How to Make a Good Impression

Prospective workers must communicate authentic interest in working for Shoney's during each interview. Hiring staff may also appreciate candidates who bring in printed availability information for review. Some hiring staff delve deeper into conversation and ask teamwork and customer service-related questions. Potential employees should use examples of times they provided great customer service at other jobs. Applicants should also maintain friendly demeanors, as staff want to see how new employees will fit in with current teams. Shake hands and show gratitude for the opportunity to interview at the end of each session.

Following Up

Applicants who do not receive employment decisions at the end of the final interview should follow-up within a week to verify the availability of the position and reestablish interest.
