I applied in-person and the process took a day - interviewed at McDonald's in July 2014.

Interview Details – Interviewed with 2 people, they were very nice. It was a busy environment. I hope it was good. When I got there the manager interviewed me personally, and asked if I had any experience. Then he showed me around and gave me a free drink.
