Very Easy Interview

Crew Member Interview

Crew Member
Marion, IL

I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at McDonald's in May 2013.

Interview Details – VERY basic questions: tell me a little about yourself, and how long do you plan on staying with us. They were surprised that I was applying so close to graduating with my Bachelor's, and they asked about what I was going to do with my degree, I had to tell them I needed to save money to move to a city and that it was going to take about 2 years. That got me the job.

Interview Question – There were no difficult questions.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Until they have a major overhaul in policy, the starting pay is ALWAYS minimum wage.

McDonalds Crew Interview

McDonalds Crew
Brooklyn, NY

I applied in-person and the process took a day - interviewed at McDonald's in January 2010.

Interview Details – They searched me and were very nice about it. Lately there were a series of robbery attempts during interviews so they wanted to make sure beforehand this was a legitimate applicant. They asked me who I was, where I came from, and why I wanted to work at McDonald's. There was music playing in the background and I believe they didn't care what I said because I was hired giving one word answers.

Interview Question – If a worker makes 3 Big Macs every minute, how many Big Macs can he make in a year?   Answer Question

Crew Member Interview

Crew Member
Robersonville, NC

I applied online and the process took 4 days - interviewed at McDonald's in June 2014.

Interview Details – I applied online and called the store to check the status of my application about 3 days later. The manager told me to come in for an interview the following day. When I arrived at the interview it was about 6 other applicants waiting along with me. Luckily I was the first person to be interviewed. This was probably the easiest interview I ever had in my life. She just asked me about my experience in fast food and education. Then she started explaining to me how orientation works and what's expected out of each worker. She was pretty straight forward that she was a tough manager and that the job is what you put into it. She told me to bring in my ID and social the following day.

Interview Question – There was no difficult question at all. Interview is pretty straightforward and very simple   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – There is no negotiation on pay whatsoever. We haven't discussed hours yet but I'm pretty sure they are flexible with your schedule

I applied online and the process took 2 days - interviewed at McDonald's in June 2014.

Interview Details – One of the staff working at this restaurant highly recommended the place, so I applied online. However, the manager was incredibly rude asking too much personal questions during the interview. He(the manager) was very unprofessional during the whole interview. I felt very uncomfortable, I could not differentiate whether it was a job interview or a personal small talk.

Interview Question – Personal question whether I have a boyfriend or not   View Answer
