They also made sure I had transportation, made sure I would be there on time, with reliable means of transportation.
Interviewer: What set you apart from other candidates?
White Castle Crew Member: I think some of my prior work experience and also references from prior employers kind of helped me. Also, because in the interview I explained I was really willing to work, that I wanted to work on the weekends and try to get as many hours as possible, so I think that really interested them in me.
Interviewer: What other advice would you give to a job seeker looking to gain employment?
White Castle Crew Member: I would tell them to expect a fast-paced environment but also the opportunities they have to give you. If you continue as a team member and work your way up to a manager, you have the potential to really get your franchise, your own franchise. A lot of people see it as a regular job on the side or something like that, but if you really put your time into it, a franchise is something you can actually look into.
