I applied online and interviewed at McDonald's.

Interview Details – The hiring process consisted of myself plus 15 other individuals I arrived after. I had to wait for my interview for about 45 mins. When I was called I was greeted by 3 managers at one table in the play palace area(this location has a play palace). The interview lasted 10 mins and the managers seemed nice; I was asked about my availability and why McDonald's? There were about 3 other questions of similarity, and they told me I would know by the following week if I had the job. I am currently still waiting.

I applied online and the process took 5 days - interviewed at McDonald's in June 2013.

Interview Details – I applied online and got a call a few days later offering me an interview. When I went in the interview lasted 15 minutes, and we mostly reviewed the resume I brought and he asked me what my job preferences were - hours, if I had any salary demands (I didn't).

Interview Question – What's one thing I should know about you?   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – I was asked what times I'd prefer to work, even though I put open availability. The manager was more than willing to listen to my concerns, and put me on shifts that I could work with no problem.
