    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at McDonald's.

    Interview

    Great place to work. I would have loved to work here but I ended up going to college instead. Going to college was one of the best things I've ever done. I am now on my way to work for a great company. McDonalds would have been my alternative job.

    I applied online – interviewed at McDonald's.

    Interview

    I was asked about how familiar I was with them and their products and how they were made. I think they cared more about being able to coach me on what to do and am not a problem to work with. I was taught how to do things after I got the job.

    I honestly recommend seeing if you can have another job offer to use as leverage. They will be stingy on pay.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at McDonald's (Rocklin, CA).

    Interview

    Applied online, got a call the next day for an interview. Manager was friendly and approachable, asked basic interview questions then talked me through a scenario with an unhappy customer, asking what I would say at each step. I think bringing in a resume, even just covering my volunteer experience, made a difference as he asked about details of some of my work. I also think it made me come off as more professional.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 daysinterviewed at McDonald's (Los Angeles, CA) in May 2015.

    Interview

    I came in and asked for manager, and she was on break. Which is fine, I came 30 minutes early. I ended up speaking to another woman, and she gave me the interview. This is my first job, and I really need one so I hope I'll get the second interview. The interview was quite lengthy when I mentioned (on accident) I think it'll be easy. I said that before I've cleaned houses and babysat and various other summer jobs. I know I work hard and I'm always positive. I really would love to have a first job, but no one hires when you have no experience. Looking forward to working here! I love the atmosphere.

    Super easy, took less than 10 minutes. The longest part was them getting the paperwork. Asked maybe 5 questions, all of which were simple and easy. There were several interviews going on and everyone was hired. I even got a pair of pants at the interview, one step of what usually happens. Overall good interview, not complicated, and very fast.

    Filled application while having a combo number one. I ordered mayo instead of ketchup, I washed my throat with Diet Coke, never a fan of regular coke.
