Very Easy Interview

Crew Member Interview

Crew Member
Warrington, North West England, England (UK)

I interviewed at McDonald's UK in January 2013.

Interview Details – Very simple interview - I wouldn't really call it an interview. All you do is talk through what you've put on your application form and expand on it... easy! OJE - Simple - handing bags to cars at the drive thru window telling them to 'enjoy their meal'

Interview Question – Not difficult - just make sure you re-read through your application form before the interview so you know what they might ask you to expand on.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Availability - don't be nice and say 'im very flexible' because they'll give you ridiculous, unsociable hours. Tell them when you can't do or when you don't want to work with a good reason (make it up?).

Counter Assistant Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
Edinburgh, Scotland (UK)

I applied online and the process took 3 days - interviewed at McDonald's UK in October 2012.

Interview Details – I applied online to a position and I got an email back in a couple of days telling me to choose a time for a face-to-face talk. When I got there, in the time slot, I've chosen, the woman I was supposed to meet was not there; I've talked to one of the higher managers who was there; it was rather a pleasant talk and he said they'll be in touch to arrange a day of actual on-site work assesment. I want home and never heard from them after - still wondering what happened. They seemed very nice people, but not that organized regarding part-time hiring process.

Interview Question – Why would I want to work there, having my unrelated degree (CS).   Answer Question

Crew Member Interview

Swalecliffe, England (UK)

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at McDonald's UK in July 2012.

Interview Details – Applied to vacancy online. This consisted of an application form and a situational questionnaire (i.e- what would you do in this situation...). A few days later I got a phone call asking me to attend a group interview at the local branch. They asked us lots of typical interview questions. We had to pair up and learn as much about our partner as we could in 5 minutes before presenting what we had found out back to the rest of the group. Then we had a 10minut1 1-2-1 interview where they checked our available and when we could start etc. I found out the outcome around 4 days later.

Customer Care Assistant Interview

Customer Care Assistant
Cheltenham, England (UK)

I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at McDonald's UK in April 2010.

Interview Details – Very simple, basic easy questions to answer on an online form which test to see if you have the desired personality. Then a very easy face to face interview. They basically want to determine how much of a hard worker you're going to be. They asked questions that just weasle out what you do in your spare time. Try to make yourself seem active. It's a hard working position.

Interview Question – Tell us what you would usually do in your spare time   Answer Question

Crew Member Interview

Crew Member
Barnsley, South West England, England (UK)

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at McDonald's UK in February 2011.

Interview Details – The initial application process is all done online, where to have create a sort of CV by answering a set of questions. You then have to complete a tedious set of 50+ questions asking you about how you respond to certain situations (Aggressive customers etc...) once this is complete to then submit the application off. I got a response by email less than a week later, to go for an interview with one of the managers, when I got to the store I had to go find a member of staff to find out who I was supposed to be having the interview with, once I had found them and explained I was here for the interview I was led out into the dining area where the interview took place, around other customers. The questions were generic questions for a piece of paper she held in front of her, all fairly straight forward could I work in team etc... This took about 15 minutes after which time she told me I had got the job and I would contacted about the initiation process ready to work.

Interview Question – How would you respond to an aggressive customer?   View Answer
