Application

I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at McDonald's in July 2015.

Interview

I applied online on the fourth of July and got a call on the fifth arranging an interview for that Monday. Monday I walked in and requested to see the manager, an employee asked if I was here for an interview and upon saying I was she brought out a clipboard for me to write down my name and the time I arrived and then I was told to sit anywhere. I sat at one of the high-top tables by the front and a few minutes later a manager came out and took me to a booth in the dining room. She asked questions from a sheet of paper and wrote down my answers, I was nervous and unprepared so I answered as quickly and honestly as I could so as not to keep her waiting, she shook my hand and then said I would get a call the following Wednesday if I did well enough to get a second interview with the GM. I didn't receive a call that Wednesday so I was going to call them back Thursday at 12 (even though I thought i did poorly) but received a call from them first telling me that the second interview would be held at 9am at another location (that was close to the one I'd applied to). It was a group interview which required you to sign in with your name and the store number to the McDonalds you applied to, I sat with about fifteen other people waiting as the GM came up and collected two people at a time to take to a secluded table. My second interview was with someone applying for the same store as me but I'd practiced popular interview questions and I was less nervous, able to smile and look the GM in the eye while answering her questions. At the end she thanked us both and said that if either of us got the job she would call the following Monday. I did receive a call from her giving me a list of things I would need to bring/wear and telling me that orientation the next Monday.

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at McDonald's (Tallahassee, FL).

    Interview

    Swift and easy. Store manager was impressed by they way I handed the date gun (used for dating food items). Store manager practically hired me on spot. From there watched me on how I worked and saw that I was watching everyone else around while keeping up with own duties. I was watching everything to learn the process of everything around. I wanted to move up, didn't want and still do not want to be a bottom feeder. From there I made it to Assistant Manager. Unfortunately my health went down after having my child, so had to leave.

    Interview

    Very Easy we really didn't talk about anything but my last name and they offered me the job within 10 minutes of the interview. It was such a quick interview process and I was just looking for a job at the time so I didn't ask much.

    I applied online. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at McDonald's in January 2015.

    Interview

    I applied online and was called a few days later to come in that same day for an interview. I arrived to the interview 10 minutes early. The manager came out and we sat at a table in the dining room and she just asked me basic questions about my availability and if I ever worked in a team and what I learned from being a part of a team. She also asked if I ever had to deal with rude customers and what I would do if I had to deal with one. The manager was super nice and she asked me if I could do the second interview later that day. She said that I had to go to the McDonalds corporate office down the road for this interview. When I got there, there was one guy just finishing up his interview so I had to wait a few minutes. When I was finally called back, I had to go into an office and the interviewer sat behind a desk. It was definitely the most formal fast food interview I have ever had and probably ever will have. The interviewer was not very nice and kept acting disgusted that I currently worked for one of their competitors. She asked me about availability and if I ever had two jobs before. This interview lasted maybe four minutes and at the end, she asked me for my ID and a social security card. She told me that she would give me a call when she makes her decision. She did not even stand up to say goodbye or even acknowledge me after that. Overall one of the worst interviews I have ever been on.

    • There were no difficult questions. The only difficult thing was dealing with the second interviewers bad attitude.   Answer Question

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at McDonald's (Sparks, NV) in January 2015.

    Interview

    I replied to a craigslist ad, applied online, the same day had interview with the FO then 3 days later interview with GM. I was told that the GM would review with FO to see their take of me, then a week past. I called to see what was going on with my application, I really want to work there I do, but the GM said she would call if she needed me. So I guess I don't have job there. Its was something I really wanted to do and was able to do. If I didn't want to work there wouldn't apply there.

    I applied online. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at McDonald's in October 2014.

    Interview

    I thought I did well but I was never called for the second interview. It was a simple one on one interview with a few questions. Not that difficult but I guess no one likes me for me. But I'm still determined to find a job somewhere.
