Hutchins, TX

I applied in-person and the process took 2 days - interviewed at McDonald's in March 2014.

Interview Details – The manager that gave me an interview hired me within the first five minutes of the interview. The manager said that I looked very professional and that he liked that I looked him in the eyes.

Negotiation Details – I told him that since I am a full-time college student that I needed flexible hours. He said that it was fine.

Difficult Interview

Drive Thru Cashier Interview

Drive Thru Cashier
Lynchburg, VA

I applied online and the process took 2 days - interviewed at McDonald's in June 2014.

Interview Details – One of the staff working at this restaurant highly recommended the place, so I applied online. However, the manager was incredibly rude asking too much personal questions during the interview. He(the manager) was very unprofessional during the whole interview. I felt very uncomfortable, I could not differentiate whether it was a job interview or a personal small talk.

Interview Question – Personal question whether I have a boyfriend or not   View Answer

Interview Details – pretty simple process. you put in a resume, mine was on site with a paper application and a nice chance to meet the manager and present myself. If you get the opportunity I'd suggest face to face asking the manager for a copy of the application. I was asked if I had any experience with working in fast food.

Interview Question – none, very basic.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – no negotiation it was minimum wage or no job.

Drive Thru Cashier
Rosemead, CA

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at McDonald's in February 2011.

Interview Details – I had one "interview" but i really got the job because i knew the hiring manager. They take almost anyone if they have room. The only reason you wouldn't get hired is if they already have too many people working there. Don't worry, people quit all the time

Interview Question – When can you start? (no real questions were asked)   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Not much negotiation. It's a minimum wage job.

Drive Thru Cashier Interview

Drive Thru Cashier
Colorado Springs, CO

I applied online and the process took 3 days - interviewed at McDonald's in February 2012.

Interview Details – I applied to work at McDonald's online and told them i was willing to work any hours they needed me and that really seemed to help with my getting the call asking me to interview later that week. I came in for my interview dressed professionally which again impressed them, I was asked a series of questions none that i found too personal. After you are actually hired they give you an orientation where they tell you the rules and have you fill out all the proper paperwork. Then you get to work.

Interview Question – None of the questions were too difficult the one that got me was "Tell me about yourself" I found my self going "who am i?" so have an answer prepared for that.   View Answer
