    Basic. Not crazy. I thought the process would have been harder. Hired on the spot. They need more hr help. I think they were so understaffed that's why they hired me. Background checks are normal

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at McDonald's.

    Interview

    Interviewed by the general manager. If selected you go through the standard paper work, tax forms, benefits, work availability. Training is done via computer in the office. You will be asked to watch multiple videos for food safety and to learn their processes to many major job tasks. After watching the videos you will be quizzed on the material during the video, which isn't hard. You will then be trained in person for a few shifts, it's not hard to learn.

    Interview Questions

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at McDonald's (Nampa, ID) in June 2015.

    Interview

    They'll ask you general questions that regard the position you want to have, such as, "how did you hear about the job opening?", "why do you want to work here?", "when can you start?",etc. Considering McDonald's almost always needs people to work there, anyone that believes that they did decently on the interview can expect to immediately get the job.

    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.

    Negotiation

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

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 9+ months. I interviewed at McDonald's (Fresno, CA) in January 2015.

    Interview

    The job interview process can be lengthy. Being interviewed once and getting a job offer is typically a thing of the past. Today, many companies have an involved interview process starting with screening interviews, followed by in-person interviews, second interviews and even third interviews.

    Interview

    I went to McDonalds and asked them for a job and then they told me to fill out some form on their website. After a few months, they called me and begged me to come in for an interview. When I showed up, they told me that I wasn't what they were looking for because I have no idea what I'm doing.
