You’ll Learn By Doing
As a Waffle House manager, you’ll learn the job by doing the job. With this in mind, you will complete a 9-12 week hands-on, in-store training program. Paired with a Training Unit Manager, you will work their schedule, learning skills in four areas:
- Service and Production
- The Waffle House Brand
of Leadership & Management
- Food Safety
- Case Studies on restaurant situations
You’ll also attend a monthly Trainee Day with senior managers to learn more about Waffle House operations.
After initial training you will attend Waffle House University at the corporate office in Norcross, Georgia. “WHU” (pronounced “Wooh”) is three days of classroom instruction with senior operations management and corporate staff.
After WHU, you will usually work in different restaurants before being assigned your own.
