    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at McDonald's (Sacramento, CA) in December 2016.

    Interview

    I had two 1:1 interviews. Both within one week. One was like a district manager and one I believe was the owner, the second didn't introduce themselves correctly. Monday I had the first interview and Thursday I had the second interview. The interviews were really easy. The first interview with the manager was chill and comfortable. The owner kinda grilled me and asked irrelevant questions. I guess it was understandable since he's making a decision that will affective his business.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at McDonald's.

    Interview

    The interview itself was a lot shorted than I anticipated and the tone a lot less heavy. Also, it was less scripted than I thought it would be, and was more of a conversation. This being said, it took several weeks for the interview to be set up, and just about as much time to hear back. When I did receive an offer, they demanded to know whether I would accept their offer within just a couple of days.

    Interview Questions

    • How would handle a situation where another manager failed to get all of their work done for the day?   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Don't expect more than the base salary.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at McDonald's (Columbus, OH) in April 2012.

    Interview

    I was called by the Mcdonald's Corp recruiter in Illinois. He interviewed me and asked me what I would like to make as a salary. He then sent my information to the corporate offices in my city. That following Monday I was contacted by the area talent manager. She then set up an interview about a week later. After the interview she set up a 2-day OJE ( ON JOB EVALUATION ) where I came into a restaurant and I worked for two days while the evaluated how I dealt with customers, delegation, and cleanliness.

    After the OJE was over I waited another 2-weeks for the background check to clear. After the background check cleared the made call to set up a meeting to make me an offer. I met my new Supervisor at the Offer metting and accepted the offer. A week later I started on June 13th 2012.

    The process lasted from April 28th - June 30th.

    Negotiation

    I didn't negotiate. I thought more about the fact that I was coming in on the ground floor of a major opportunity.
