Crew Member Interview

Anonymous Employee

I applied through an employee referral and the process took a day - interviewed at McDonald's in June 2013.

Interview Details – I knew a manager that worked there so it was a pretty easy process. She asked some questions like my goals and important qualities. I think at that point they were just hiring so she didn't go much further. She set a date for training and paperwork and that was it.

Interview Question – Goals for next few years. I just didn't expect it from McDonald's at the time.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – No negotiation. Minimum wage for everybody starting.
