For me, it took around 3 days for them to respond after I sent in the online application. We then scheduled the interview 2 days after, and after a few basic questions, I was hired on the spot.

It does not take long at all, you apply and ask to speak with a manager and they will then let you know when to come in for an interview. usually if you get the first initial interview you get hired.

It takes a minimal amount time once you are selected. You will be called and set up for a first interview and if things go well, you will be set up with a second interview with the general manager
