    Pretty standard process for a fast food place. Nice guy who interviewed me. I felt comfortable, but that may because I have interviewed at food service places many times before. They didn't ask me anything surprising or strange.

    Interview

    From date of applying to date to hire was ~ 5 days, Had an interview and the questions they asked were very simple and nothing out of the ordinary. Common sense to get out of the trick personality questions. EX: If you saw someone drop food on the floor would you stop them from serving it.

    Interview Questions

    • None, the interview was very easy to get though and don't test your knowledge.   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at McDonald's (Tuscaloosa, AL) in June 2014.

    Interview

    The interview was very quick and easy. It did not feel like an actually interview because I was already getting hired in the interview due to my previous experience. I was mainly asked a couple of questions about myself and what I did when I was previously employed at McDonald's.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at McDonald's (Boulder City, NV) in April 2014.

    Interview

    interview was fairly straight forward, almost cookie cutter. it lacked any personality or flavor, not necessarily a bad thing but not a good thing either. the problem with that is it gives no indication as to how your company is unique or why anyone should want to work for your company.
