Application

I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at McDonald's.

Interview

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 Questions

  • 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

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at McDonald's in August 2013.

    Interview

    There was no process or interview! I came in after a call to show up for an interview and immediately started filling out paperwork. That should've been my warning to get out! I got no training my first day and they didn't give me my mandatory breaks.

    Negotiation

    It's just a fast food job, they're the ones gaining from you.

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at McDonald's.

    Interview

    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.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at McDonald's in June 2013.

    Interview

    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 Questions

    Negotiation

    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.
