    Crew Member Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Lancaster, CA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. I interviewed at McDonald's (Lancaster, CA) in June 2017.

    Interview

    I went to an open interview and it was good. I got a call a few hours later saying I and a few of my friends have a second interview the next day. We all went and the interviewer was intimidating and rude. All of us but one person who already knew the manger didn't get the job. The person who already knew the manager didn't even get asked any interview questions. All she was asked was about how she and her family was doing. We were told we will know by 5 that day if we got the job. No one received a call only that girl received an email a few days later.

    Flipper Interview

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. I interviewed at McDonald's (London, England (UK)) in January 2013.

    Interview

    They asked me questions and I answered them. I tried very hard to answer the questions, some of which were very difficult. I subtly hinted that I has a very special set of skills which I'd learned in the SAS. I'm not sure that they believed me though.

    General Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Auburn, WA
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at McDonald's (Auburn, WA) in November 2016.

    Interview

    Rigid and unfocused. Company management seemed to be grasping for mistakes and errors that were not there. Well performing individuals feel like their choices were wrong or invalid, but after your answers check out you get a chance. Turnover among managers is extremely high.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at McDonald's.

    Interview

    Asked me to interview consisted of my past experience. I didn't have much I could talk about since they were not interested in my video game accolades.

    One interview question was they sampled how much change I would give a customer. I Couldn't do it so didn't get the job. Isn't that what computers are for?!

    They asked how much change I should give if someone came in and gave me a 5 dollar bill and 3 quarters for a 99 cent ice cream cone.

    I was like i'd give none cus yall ice cream machine is always out of order!

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Bristol, England (UK)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at McDonald's (Bristol, England (UK)) in August 2016.

    Interview

    Very hard interview followed by the manager lying to my face saying there were no training workers on the floor when I saw people training with them before I went in and after.

    The questions also caught me off guard, I was not expecting them to be so obscure.

    As these questions were like this I feel my interview was affected and thus I was not able to get the job. At least the woman on the till was friendly when I asked for the manager.

    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.
