Chill and calm down gianthead. Wear something smart but not ott. Maybe a shirt and trousers, I don't think a tie is necessary. I can almost guarantee you it will be a one on one interview. Research McDonalds if you want you, but I think everyone will agree that we all know a lot about them. Be enthusiastic, smile keep eye contact and remember to shake hands. Questions they might ask are:
Why do you want to work for McDonalds?
What can you offer to McDonalds?
What would you do if an unhappy customer was complaining about this/that product?
How will you be able to adapt in a fast paced environment?
And most importantly do you have any questions to ask? Always think of something, because this shows you have an interest in working for the company. Relax a bit, it's ok to be nervous because everyone in this situation will be, as a little stress will make you perform that much better. And finally just don't panic.
P.S. Where is the location of this McDonalds, because where I live they don't seem to be recruiting.
relax! i work at mcdonalds. and trust me i got an interview too when i applied. it's really simple. just wear casual clothes (well thats what i wore - jeans and a top) and if it's your first interview and you are in a group, just try to answer every question the person interviewing your group asks. questions are dead simple - like how would you treat customers so on, not rocket science!
by the way, macdonalds pay isnt too good. just so that u know. i'm planning to get another part-time job somewhere else.
I'm through to the 2nd round (would you believe) which is happening tomorrow. I've gotta wear some black trousers and they'll lend me a McD shirt so I can serve at the counter for 20 min and then they'll have a 'chat' with me.
I'm a nervous wreck again! apart from smiling till my face cracks how can I make my performance shine? what's the chat gonna be about that didn't happen in first interview?
anyone been through this ghastly system? any tips?
Calm down! 2nd round is not hard, just be polite and friendly and you'll be fine. After you've done the counter for a bit they'll take you to the crew room and you're supposed to watch a video and do a fill in the blanks test on it. I never saw the video and was given the answers! It's a pretty cool place to work cos everyone's your age even the managers so everyone has a laugh. My Mc Donalds is really flexible too, you can book days off and just come back for holidays when you're at uni, where as most places will expect you to transfer. Good luck!
I went through the second interview ok, now I'm expecting a reply today or tomorrow.
I've been told that if they say they'll get back to you by a certain date that means they're interested and if they just say they'll contact you without specifying a date they've ruled you out. Is there any truth in this?
