    The main part about the OJE is that you've got to show a willingness to learn and that you are comfortable talking to customers. Most likely, they'll watch you on the camera while you hand out food or whatever else to customers. Remember to smile, say something along the lines of "enjoy your meal", or "have a good day" when they leave and always say "thankyou". If you're comfortable talking to the customers and are polite then they'll at least know that you can be counted on to work on the tills.
    ALWAYS SMILE. Don't slack, stand upright, look alert, and keep an interest in what the job entails (eg- ask the crew members what this screen shows ect)

    At my interview they asked me questions like, "what are you going to spend the money on", "how would you get to work?", "why did you want to work here?", "what are youre future ambitions?"
    It's important to mention something that sounds fairly responsible, such as "I am going to save the money up for a car, or for driving lessons", instead of something like "socialising, going out". You can always expand this answer by saying something like, "I want to be more responsible for my own finances so I don't have to depend on my parents for certain things. I think I'm old enough now to pay my own way".
    When they asked me why I wanted to work there I said it was because "I felt like I'm at the age where I should get a part-time job in order to prepare me for my future careers, whetever I choose to go into higher education or not, and because I feel like this is a friendly and great place to work". Basically I just hinted that the workers seem happy to help, and this was qualities I valued, and thus I thought I should work there.
    When they asked about my future ambitions, I was told by my friends not to say I was planning on going to uni because that shows them that they only have me working there for 2 years? I'm not sure about that, but to be on the safe side, say that you are interested in a career in customer service as you believe it requires all the skills and personality traits that you have, such as hard-working, politeness ect (if they ask).
    When asked how you would get to work, state more than one thing! I said bus, train, car, bike, walking (even though I only walk to work).

    They'll look over what you wrote for your hobbies and your proudest moment in your application form, so remember what you wrote and have a few sentences ready incase they ask you about them. (For example, don't say you like reading books if you don't have a list of book titles to say you've read). Just sound pleasant and interested.

    Good luck and I hope the interview goes well. Tell me how it goes?

    I do work at McDonalds yeah. On my OJE I was at the windows handing out drinks to customers going through the 'Drive thru'. Basically smile, be happy, ask questions, look interested, talk to the customers and always look alert and awake.

    It's not a once in a life time opportunity though, you can apply to nearby McDonald's even if you are rejected from that job, and you can apply for a similar job at the same McDonald's after that placement has left.
