Cashier
Treasure Island, FL

Interviewed at McDonald's

Interview Details – I had one interview and was hired immediately. Easy to complete paperwork. No hard questions. No requirements. I was in high school at the time. They asked for my school schedule and worked with my school work program for credit. There wasn't any negotiation or anything difficult. No prior experience needed. I just made sure to dress neatly and be presentable.

Cashier Interview

Cashier

I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at McDonald's.

Interview Details – Interview process was pretty basic. Not sure if it was just because they need employees but they pretty much asked simple questions like when are you available to work? What times, days and things like that.

Interview Question – As a typical question, the one I found most difficult was why do you want to work here? Other than that, that pretty much wrapped up the interview.   Answer Question
