Crew Member Interview

Crew Member
Pickering, ON

I applied in-person and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at McDonald's in April 2012.

Interview Details I applied online but like most people I know I didn't get a response so I decided to go on National hiring day. They made me do a multiple choice quiz with 50 questions (The same ones as online), which tested the how much of a team player you are. Immediately after finishing, I got an interview and they asked me questions to clarify things on my resume as well as teamwork and communication based questions like "What would you do if a customer becomes unhappy?", "What would you do if a customers child looks unhappy?". I basically answered stating that I would put on a smile and do whatever is in my power to make their day.

Interview Question – There wasn't any difficult or unexpected questions. They were standard questions that you would receive at any minimum wage job.   Answer Question

I applied in-person and the process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at McDonald's in March 2010.

Interview Details It was a fun interview and the hiring manager made me feel at ease. I was provided with a great introduction to what I might be doing, potential shifts available, salary, and expectations for performance. Once the initial interview was well underway and I was feeling comfortable, we were joined by another member of the management staff who reviewed our discussion and asked a few additional questions.

Crew Member Interview

Crew Member
Surrey, BC

I applied in-person and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at McDonald's in February 2012.

Interview Details Apply either in person or online. You proceed to fill out application forms and are told that they would be contacting you in the near future, likely a week or two is how long i waited. You're sat down in either the lobby, office or their crew room as you are asked multiple questions on situations and solutions to those situations; Worst case scenarios, abusive customers, furthest you've gone out of your way for someone. etc. Then the basics of thanking you and telling you they will be in touch with in the next little while. Hiring managers are usually pleasant, but you better start praying they are always pleasant since I did not get that treatment. Usually is a diverse work force, but that all depends on area. All in all very standard and easy interview process.

Interview Question – In my case the most difficult question was the "What's the furthest you've gone out of your way to help some one?" As those can be very personal situations depending on the person.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – McDonald's accepts workers and spits them back out on a daily basis. There is likely no negotiation of pay unless you're looking at positions above at least crew trainers i would assume.
