    What key characteristics tell you a prospective employee will be a great fit for your company?

             Wingstop is dedicated to sourcing candidates with a guest-first mentality and a passion for hospitality. We want candidates who have integrity, are engaged and value a team-oriented and collaborative environment. The best candidates will be trustworthy, accountable, consistent and willing to go above and beyond.

    What can prospective employees do to get your attention?

                    The standout candidates will follow through in the interview process and respond to inquiries in a timely manner. These applicants will show interest in the role, ask questions about the brand and culture as well as demonstrate that they have done their research on the company. The best candidates drive the interview process and engage in a discussion with the recruiter. A few other tips: never underestimate the power of a firm handshake, eye contact and a positive and outgoing demeanor.

    Are there any positions or types of candidates you are particularly focused on hiring in this coming year?

                    While we have consistently experienced company growth over the past years and added additional headcount in all functional areas, our focus over the next year is primarily based in Restaurant Operations and Franchise Support.  

    What should interested candidates do to find out more and get started?

    Interested candidates should join our Wingstop LinkedIn network. All Restaurant Support Center opportunities are posted on LinkedIn and it is a great way to network with current Wingstop team members and inquire about opportunities.
