    Interview

    Applied online, got a text from the manager two days later to call her to set up an interview. I was really nervous for the interview but all you have to do is be yourself honestly.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at McDonald's (Durand, WI) in July 2017.

    Interview

    I got there a little bit early and waited for the manager since she was working the drive thru. We sat down and talked for maybe 5-10 minutes about my previous work experience, company rules about appearance(no crazy hair colors, visible tattoos, etc)and availability. She asked 5 or 6 questions, then said she contacts people in a week if she wants them. She stood up, shook my hand and thanked me for coming in.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at McDonald's.

    Interview

    a bit of a rant but, I applied online to the location in San Tan Valley, Az and I got no response for two weeks, I saw they did open interviews and wanted to take initiative and show up, even with my anxiety I wanted to get to working, I was really determined to get this job. The hiring manager was not very understanding or helpful during the interview, I've never had a job before so this was all new to me, she said she would call Wednesday and if I didn't hear from them that I should call in the next few days. When I called back on Friday to see what my status was she acted like she didn't even know who I was and said they found someone with "more experience" which is ridiculous because this is a entry level job and a "more open schedule" even though I explicility told her that I was available anytime they need me. She also said to call back in two or three weeks to see if there any openings, that really upset me, I'm not going to wait that long after they treated me like nothing. I'm sure I didn't do that great at the interview but aren't they supposed to give people oppuritinites? I was willing to work and give it my all but I guess they don't want that, they just want previous achievments. Keep in mind in Arizona minimum wage is $10 so maybe they want people to reach more requirements. These entry level jobs don't feel like entry level jobs anymore, the only time you get success is if you have a resumè or insane personality. It was just a bad experience and I'll never apply at such a crappy establishment ever again. I'm sorry if I seem entitled, this world owes me nothing but this was my first interview and it's a really crushing feeling to really set your sights on one job and then have it hit you in the face. I guess that's why people look for multiple jobs at once. I won't give up on looking for a job, this was just a setback and in reality I probably dodged a bullet.

    Application

    The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at McDonald's.

    Interview

    Applied online. Didn't hear back for about a week, so I did a follow up call. The manager asked if I could come down for an interview the next day and I did. Interview was only 15 minutes or so and got hired on the spot. The questions were easy and simple. I accepted the job only as a filler to find a better one.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at McDonald's (Augusta, GA).

    Interview

    It was very laid back. The interview was more like an open house, I got a call for an interview but I still had to sign in with the other people. I saw two people, the location owner and the hiring manager, they were both very kind and easy to talk to.
