Sales Associate Interview (Positive Experience; Easy Interview)
I applied in-person and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at McDonald's in May 2010.
Interview Details I applied online and then I dropped off my resume at the store. Two of my friends were working there and I guess they recommanded me to the manager. I can't really remember if I had a phone interview or not. I had one in-person intervew with the manager. It wasn't a formal interview. I wore a plaid shirt, black jeans and flats to the interview and we sat down between one of the tables in the store. She asked a few general behavioral questions. I was able to answer all of them. Then one week later I was hired.

Crew Member/Counter/DT Interview (Positive Experience; Easy Interview)
I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at McDonald's in July 2013.
Interview Details After I applied online through the McDonalds website I received a call within a few days for an interview. I agreed to the interview and went to it. I was really scared at first and I thought it would help for me to loosen up by talking to the other people waiting to be interviewed so I did and it helped me relax a lot. When it was my turn to be interviewed I went over and sat in the booth with one of the head McDonalds people who work in the office and she asked me very basic questions like why do you want to work here and what makes you so people friendly, what would your friends describe you as in one word, etc. I found that just being myself and answering the questions to the best of my ability really helped. I also made the person interviewing me laugh because we were talking about my previous job experience as I've done a bit of everything. My best advice is dress nice but not a suit or anything. I wore a sundress and to have a good attitude and try to make the person interviewing you smile. Oh, and most importantly be yourself because if you aren't being yourself than the interviewer can definitely tell.

Crew Member Interview (Positive Experience; Easy Interview)
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.
