    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at McDonald's.

    Interview

    The interview is basically a conversation about your availability, the job, and your past work experiences. Very simple. They will call for a second meeting where you will fill out paperwork and order your uniform. They can be slow with this process but they will get back to you. Your first day will essentially be watching videos, and then if there's enough time left they'll stick you somewhere, probably in the kitchen.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at McDonald's (San Jose, CA) in June 2015.

    Interview

    I applied to McDonald's a little over a month ago and they called me into an interview after about two weeks after I turned in my app. The interview was very standard and pretty easy. It's a very professional environment even though it is a fast food place so dress to impress. After the interview I was called another two weeks later for the orientation (which means you got the job). Over all it was pretty easy. Just be confident in yourself and be enthusiastic and you'll be great!!

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at McDonald's (Milwaukee, WI) in June 2015.

    Interview

    I applied online and about three days later got a call back from a manager she invited me to do an interview a few days from then and I went in. Standard questions were asked like 'why do you want to work here?' and 'what are you best/worst qualities?'. There was also a part where I had to go through a scenario with a customer who was unhappy with something about the service. I thought I messed up the interview (still do) but Another 3 or 4 days after the interview I got a call from the manager who interviewed me who told me I was being considered but had to take a test and pass it. It was a two question test asking about criminal history and sexual offenses. Another few days after completing the test I got a call from the manager and received an orientation date.
