    I applied in-person. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at McDonald's.

    Interview Details

    They asked me how many fries I can make in an hour. I didn't know what to say!!!! I told them, "I don't know". He looked at me like I was crazy. He said, "How about an egg"? How many eggs per hour? I said 18. He asked how I would know that and I told him that I had known that they asked those types of questions, so I timed myself with a carton of eggs in the kitchen. "Why didn't you do the fries?", he asked. I told him that the great potato famine had left me scarred for life and that I swore to never hurt another potato in my life.

When the interviewer came, we greeted and shook hands, and I was directed to a table away from the other tanles the customers used. The interviewer asked questions like what I know about the company, why I wanted to work at McDonald's and what my strengths and weaknesses are. I answered all these questions to the best of my knowledge. WHen the interview was over, the interviewer told me that I would get a call from the company's manager if I was deemed appropriate for employment in a couple of days. However, I did not get the call.
