    Online test gets you an interview. This isn't a real interview all you do is write your hours and what store you are applying for and the recruitment person will tell you where to go for an induction.
    The induction is just watching a couple dvds and sign the contract. They tell you then to go to the store you'll be working to get shown around and give bank details and pick up uniform. Oh you have to take another test online on food hygiene and h and s after they give you your login dtails for ourlounge.

    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at McDonald's UK in June 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied by sending my email and I got a response after 1 or 2 days. The interview was very easy, it was more like a conversation. I believe that they had already chosen to employ me but they just wanted to meet me in person. The shift manager just asked me questions about my personality.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at McDonald's UK in May 2014.

    Interview Details

    Applied online for a Full Time Fully Flexible role, I had applied to MacDonald's before so all my details and 'situational question' answers were saved. 2 days later received an interview invitation, for 3 days later. On the day of the interview I went to front counter and said "I'm a bit early but I have an interview at 2, do you know what I should do?" the staff told me to wait in the seating area. Interviewer came and took me into the locker room as the restaurant was too busy. He asked me to tell him about myself, and asked questions about how I'd work in a team, show attention to detail, deal with an aggressive or rude customer, cope with multiple things being asked of me at the same time. All these asked for example but it was 'okay if I didn't have one'. They interviewer was really friendly and enthusiastic. Then I left my things in the locker room and he took me to the drive-thru window where I did the On Job Evaluation (OJE), literally just handing food and drinks to customers or asking them to park around the corner to wait for their order, and being really polite etc. After that we went back to the locker room to get my stuff and he told me they'd be in touch within a few days and if I was successful I would get a second interview with a manager. Received 2 emails 3.5 hours later telling me I had been unsuccessful but no feedback could be given.
    I feel like the interview and OJE went well and the only compromising factor was that I told the interviewer that I only wanted the job at that store for 3 months (as I'd be moving back to University in September).

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at McDonald's UK in July 2013.

    Interview Details

    I filled out and sent the online application form on Monday. I quickly got a reply and was invited to an interview on Wednesday. The interview consisted of two parts, the first was just a normal question and answer interview, and the second part was basically spending 10 minutes pretending that you work there.

    The question and answer interview was six questions, all in the "give me an example when you..." format. I can't remember exactly, but they were something like: worked as a team, worked under pressure, had to follow instructions, had to help encourage other team members.

    In the second part I had to just walk around and clean some tables. I was really worried about this part because I thought they were going to put me in front of a till or something.

    On Friday I got a job offer.

    Crew Member Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Warrington, North West England, England (UK)
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Warrington, North West England, England (UK)
    Application Details

    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 Questions
    • 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?).
