Store Manager Interview

Store Manager

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at McDonald's.

Interview Details – You should expect to answer questions about yourself. What you like to do, what kind of grades you get, you transportation to and from work, they just want to get to know you. Sometimes they'll throw you a math problem or interesting question like, "If you were a super hero and could have one power, what would it be?" If they ask that, DO NOT say flying. That is a horrible choice. Teleportation is always better than flying.

Interview Question – What is your biggest weakness?   Answer Question

Store Manager Interview

Store Manager
Parsippany, NJ

I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at McDonald's in April 2009.

Interview Details – Store positions can be quite boring. Flip burgers. Pack the fries and toys for happy meal. Hiring was pretty easy. Although I never had worked for McDonalds, I got hired as store manager based on my work at Chiptole. The interview process is a joke. Having gone through my bachelors and masters, this is the best I could find now.

Interview Question – What was the worst customer review from Chipotle and how did you deal with it?   Answer Question
