I applied through college or university and the process took a day - interviewed at McDonald's in March 2011.

Interview Details – I first interacted with McDonald's at a career/internship fair for my school. They took my resume and encouraged me to apply online which I did. Days later I received a phone call that I had been selected for an interview. The interview itself was about an hour long and consisted of three different managers from three different departments asking normal interview questions (Why McDonald's? Why IT? Strengths? Weaknesses?) A couple days later I received another call saying I had been selected and accepted the offer. I loved every moment of being an intern for McDonald's.

I applied through college or university and the process took 2 months - interviewed at McDonald's in April 2011.

Interview Details – The process for applying and hearing back in regards to an internship at McDonald's is long; you almost think they forgot about you. I applied and was sent an email asking some basic behavior questions: what are your skills/weakness etc. After that I was called in for an onsite interview. I interviewed with 3 potential managers, which was nice because I got specifics on what expectations each manager had for me. Overall the questions were all basic behavioral questions and some about my resume.

Interview Question – Tell me about a time you were working on a project with a difficult team member. How did you motivate them?   Answer Question

IT Intern Interview

The process took a day - interviewed at McDonald's in May 2010.

Interview Details – The interview was conducted over the phone. I was speaking with a group of McDonald's employees working in the department I was applying for. For the most part the interviewers were polite and easy to talk to. Only one of the interviewers was a bit confrontational. They began by describing the position in detail. At this point I realized that this position may not be what I originally thought it was from reading the brief summary of the job posting.

Next, I was asked to go over my educational and professional background. Since we were not speaking in person it was hard to judge how much detail they wanted to hear. It was complete silence as I was giving them a monologue speech of my school and work experiences. Finally, I stopped and asked if they wanted me to continue and elaborate further but they said no.

By the end both parties realized that this position is, in fact, not what I'm looking for. The interview was good practice, nonetheless.

Interview Question – Describe your educational and professional background and how it fits with the job's requirements.   Answer Question
