    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at McDonald's Canada.

    Interview

    Applied on-line, about a week later I received a call to set up an interview for the following week. Went in to the restaurant and told the girl at the counter I was there for an interview. Went to the back section of the restaurant and sat with a few other people while waiting for my interview. Was told they were interviewing a bunch of people but only hiring a couple, so the chances weren't that great.

    Application

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

    Interview

    I had been referred by my mothers friend of a friend who was a former employee. I dont think it made much of a difference in terms of getting hired. All I was told is to ask for (managers name). I came in with my resume and had the interview right then and there in the restaurant. The questions were pretty basic “Why do you want to work for us?“ since this was my first ever job interview saying it was easy is says a lot. I was asked if I could start Monday and was hired on the spot!

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at McDonald's Canada (Mississauga, ON (Canada)) in October 2014.

    Interview

    I applied online and got a call about 2 weeks later to come in for an interview. When I went in for the interview I had to wait like 10 mins extra because the interviewer was still doing interviewing other people. But other than that, the interview went very smoothly. At first we talked about my availability and work history (I didn't have any, so volunteer history). We talked about the different responsibilities I had during volunteering. Then she gave me ask me a few questions. After I got a call back 3 days later saying I got the job :)

    interviewed at McDonald's Canada (Guelph, ON (Canada)) in September 2014.

    Interview

    Apply online first, and I got a call within a week of applying online. Asked a few simple questions like "tell me about a time when someone in the group was negative", "how would you turn a customers negative experience into a good one", etc. Overall I've worked at McDonald's twice and both times the interviewer(s) have been extremely nice and understanding.
