    Interview

    Pretty standard process for a fast food place. Nice guy who interviewed me. I felt comfortable, but that may because I have interviewed at food service places many times before. They didn't ask me anything surprising or strange.

    Interview

    From date of applying to date to hire was ~ 5 days, Had an interview and the questions they asked were very simple and nothing out of the ordinary. Common sense to get out of the trick personality questions. EX: If you saw someone drop food on the floor would you stop them from serving it.

    Interview Questions

    • None, the interview was very easy to get though and don't test your knowledge.   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied in-person – interviewed at McDonald's.

    Interview

    The hiring and interview process was not organized and I felt like it was a waste of time. The manager did not seem experienced in giving interviews. I was told to show up at a specific time, and when I did the manager was not prepared.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at McDonald's in January 2014.

    Interview

    Ok interview. Took about 15 minutes. The manager seemed personable; asked me about my previous experience working as a cashier. Went over responsibilities of the job, growth opportunities, expectations. Pretty generic questions, whether I had interviewed with Burger King or Sonic Burger.

    Interview Questions

    • Asked if I was open to odd hours. Given I was going to school at the time, difficult to answer.   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at McDonald's (Bronx, NY) in September 2013.

    Interview

    Just be prepare to answer, "Why you want to work for Mcdonald's" , "Why should I pick you out of the individuals I have interview". This is all I remember but just be ready for basic questions. Know about the company and implemented in the answer. Get there early and TRY THE BEST TO SMILE that your face expression is just a happy friendly person. My interviewer notice that but I just said "There's a difference between been professional and work" in other words I was there for the interview but that my characteristics will be shown when I get the job.

    Interview Questions

    • Why should I pick you out of the individuals I hate Interview?   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    I didn't negotiate because I didn't have no experience, for that reason the salary was fair.
