Here are a few quick tips for how you can optimize your Dunkin’ Donuts application and interview process. Good luck!

Application:

  • Be prepared when you begin the application process and ensure that you are able to meet the requirements.
  • Remember that Dunkin’ Donuts locations are operated as a franchise, so each location is independently owned and operated. This means that you won’t be able to call a generic Dunkin’ Donuts phone number and ask about your application, you will need to direct your inquiries to the location directly.
  • You will be asked to select what position you want to apply for. You may also be asked to state your hours of availability, so have that information handy.
  • You may have the option of selecting more than one position beforehand or during the application. If you do have this option, take advantage of it!
  • Fill out the application in its entirety once you start it. Don’t leave anything blank!
  • Answer all personal questions professionally using correct English and grammar.
  • You may be prompted to upload or attach your resume to the application and/or manually enter the information off of it into the application. Do both! You want them to know that you are serious about the position. Some managers will not consider applications where there is no information entered manually.
  • If the location that you are applying to is local, you may consider introducing yourself in person a few days after you have submitted your application.
  • Make sure that you have proof of eligibility to work in the U.S. with you when you fill out your application, and again during an interview. If you are still in school and have a work permit, have that information available as well.

Interview:

  • Dunkin’ Donuts is a restaurant, and you will be handling food, which means that you should present yourself in a neatly kempt, clean and orderly manner.
  •  If you have long hair, pull it back out of your face and don’t wear extensive adornments.
  • Women, don’t wear fake fingernails or nail polish. You will be handling food on the job, and you do not want to lose a fingernail or polish flakes in someone’s cream filled donut delight.
  • Men, stay away from heavy cologne and jewelry. If you have extensive tattoos, you may consider covering them during the interview, then mentioning them to the interviewer to ensure you understand their policy.
  • If you are applying for a managerial or corporate position, you should dress to impress. Dress professionally and modestly, but don’t overdo it. You should be able to impress them by being yourself!
  • Take some time to learn about Dunkin’ Donuts as a company including their history and their work as a franchise business. Learning some background knowledge of the company will help you as you break into a new position.
  • Take print outs of your resume, cover letter, and letters of recommendation,  as well as any awards or honors that may be applicable to the job. It is always best to be prepared for anything.
  • Follow up on your interview with a thank you phone call or note. You don’t want to be a pest, however taking a quick moment to say thank you may go a long way in your application and interview process.
  • Stay professional with conversation during the interview unless you are asked personal questions directly.

Don’t ask questions about benefits, pay, vacation time, etc. and what you will get from them; instead, devote your time to explaining what you are offering them.
