I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at McDonald's in May 2013.

Interview Details – I was told to meet the manager at a specific time at the restaurant. I came, and had to wait 15 minutes, because McDonald's is super busy. Then we sat in a booth in the restaurant and she asked me a couple of questions, and once the "interview" process was over, she gave me a sheet of paper that directed me to the corporate office so I could complete the hiring process. Super easy.

Interview Question – How do you work in a team? (Something like that)   Answer Question

Interviewed at McDonald's

Interview Details – I filled out an application online and then had an interview in person. I was contacted several days later and was told they were not interested. The questions were not hard or difficult. I felt reasonably prepared for the interview. The interviewer seemed a tad bit nervous. I am glad I got the experience.

Cashier

Interviewed at McDonald's

Interview Details – Alot of it had to do with who you know. Most of the people working there were all in the same family. Aunts, cousins, uncles, sisters, brothers. You basically had to know someone who knew someone in order to even get a job as a cashier. They also usually gave hours out mostly to people who were in their family. Everybody else was stuck working once or twice a week.

Interview Question – There are none really.   Answer Question
