Crew Member/Grill Cook

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

Interview Details – 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.

Crew Member/Grill Cook Interview

Crew Member/Grill Cook

I applied online and the process took 2 days - interviewed at McDonald's in June 2009.

Interview Details – They ended up calling within two days of submitting an application and asked for an in-person interview. The interview itself was done within the restaurant with the manager, and mostly revolved around casual questions regarding your current situation, as well as personality. They also seemed to gauge during the interview what position you would be most suited for, as far as working the registers or food preparation.

Interview Question – While there were no really difficult questions, some can be unexpected in an interview, such as what are seven things you do after you wake up to prepare for the day. This seemed like an indirect way of checking the hygiene of prospective employees without directly asking them about their habits.   Answer Question
