Front Line/Cashier Interview

Front Line/Cashier
Scarborough Township, ON

I applied in-person and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Dairy Queen in August 2010.

Interview Details The interview wasn't like a traditional interview. It was more of a casual conversation you have with someone. The questions that were asked weren't about the job they just want to know more about you. During the interview they told me what I would be doing and what the policies were for the store. I got hired on the spot.

Interview Question – There were no difficult questions.   Answer Question

I applied through another source and the process took a day - interviewed at Dairy Queen.

Interview Details I saw an ad on kijiji for a DQ job fair and attended. As I entered the location, I noticed there was a very long line into a single room. I waited for four hours until they finally got to me. When I entered the room, it was set up like American Idol. One long table with three interviewers, and one single chair for me in the middle of the room. Talk about pressure! So I sat down and they ran through a series of typical questions and it was very rushed. I could tell they just wanted to get everyone over with quickly. It lasted about 15 minutes, then I shook each of their hands and left.

Sales Associate Interview

Sales Associate
North Vancouver, BC

The process took 2 days - interviewed at Dairy Queen in March 2011.

Interview Details I was notified by a friend who already worked at DQ about the job. I printed out my resume and a copy of the application on their website, handed it in that day, and was called for an interview for the following day. I went in for a short 1:1 interview, where my manager and I briefly talked about previous job experience, laws regarding breaks and paycheques, store policies, etc. I accepted the job and came in the next day for training.

Interview Question – Why do you want to work for DQ?   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Negotiation was not offered, but I accepted anyway because it was a great entry level job.

The process took a day - interviewed at Dairy Queen in March 2009.

Interview Details I went to the local Dairy queen to fill out an application, and I was asked to have an interview on the spot. They just told me about the company and the responsibilities I would have, and then asked me about my availability and if I usually take summer vacations, as they are busiest in the summer. At the end of the interview, they offered me the job and told me they would call when I was to start working.
