    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at McDonald's (Corry, PA) in February 2017.

    I arrived 10 minutes early and had to wait for 20 minutes. The interview lasted about 10 minutes and was very basic. The interviewer kept telling me how much he hated it when people didn't answer their phone when he called, and to stay by mine the next day to wait for his call with either a "yes" or "no". He never called and though I reached out a few days later and left my name I never did hear back.
