I applied through an employee referral and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at McDonald's in June 2014.

Interview Details – I got an interview with mcdonalds through a friend, and was told to apply online, went to the second interview. the questions were very simple and i felt stupid for stressing so much. just be sure to get there on time, put your availability down as open, and they'll hire you for sure.

Interview Question – Describe a difficult time when working with a customer and how you dealt with the situation   Answer Question

I applied online and the process took 4 days - interviewed at McDonald's in March 2014.

Interview Details – I was called a few days after I applied online, first by a general manager then by a hiring manager (I missed the general manager's call). The interviewer went through my application and talked about it with me, asking for a few more details about what I wrote. Then, he asked when I could start.

Interview Question – When can you start?   Answer Question

I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at McDonald's.

Interview Details – I was called and asked what would work. They gave me the choice of time, but none of the times I picked seemed to be good for them. I also spoke with several people on the one call which felt very out of place. When I did show up for the interview I ended up waiting for over an hour to be seen. I understand that there were other people, but I hoped they planned with that in mind, and they did not. Once a manager got to me I ended up going through a couple questions and then had the interviewer leave. I sat for another 20 or so minutes before being greeted by the store manager who offered me the job. Overall it wasn't that bad, but lacked organization and timing.

Interview Question – There were no real hard questions. The hardest one was that "tell me about yourself."   View Answer

Negotiation Details – There was none.

Urbana, IL

I applied online and the process took 3 days - interviewed at McDonald's in January 2014.

Interview Details – applied online and got a phone call a few days later to set up an interview. i went in and discussed why i wanted to work there and told them about my experience with mcdonald's and she liked the fact that i had experience and decided at the end of the interview to hire me which i accepted.

Interview Question – what made you want to work here?   View Answer

Negotiation Details – i was with the same company but different cities and they increased it by 10 cents from the last store i worked with. it just depends on what experience you have with mcdonald's if you have none you are most likely to get minimum wage

I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at McDonald's in April 2011.

Interview Details – 1 interview. Had to answer approximately 60 questions for the online application. The interview was quite difficult considering it was for a crew position questions included. When was a time you had to work fast and on a deadline. Give me an example of a time you had to pick up the slack for someone else.

Interview Question – When was the last time you completed something on a deadline where you where almost late and what was this.   Answer Question
