    I've never been to an Interview at Mcdonalds but from my experience they will ask things like:

    When can you work/ how many hours can you work? Are you flexible on this?
    What are your skills/ experience / strengths?
    What are your weaknesses?
    Why do you want the job?
    Give me an example of a time when....
    And if you are in college or uni or something they are likely to ask you about that
    They will also probably tell you quite a bit about the job and ask if you have any questions (it looks good to ask something - it makes you seem enthusiastic about the job)

    On the on the job assessment they are likely to put you doing something interacting with the customers - possibly handing people their orders or something along these lines. Just try your best, be friendly to everyone and do things enthusiastically. Ask lots of questions about how things work and their policies etc.

    All in all they will just be looking to make sure you are friendly, presentable and competent enough to pick up the job I think there's actually a Mcdonalds thread where you could get more info from people that have actually had interviews at Mcdonalds if you have a look around for it

    Good luck anyway!

    I did 2 interviews at McDonalds about a year ago and was offered the job (although I turned it down). They ask you things like 'what experience do you have working as a part of a team?' and 'what would you do if a customer starts being aggressive?'. The questions are pretty easy and they didn't really need any preparation - you just need to use your common sense really and be friendly and polite

    I also did a job assessment and they just asked me to greet customers and walk around making sure everything was OK. It was weird greeting the customers as people don't really expect McDonald's workers to greet them at the door so it was a bit awkward. I also went round picking up rubbish and asking people if their food was OK.

    Hi I didn't turn it down because of the job or McDonald's, I turned it down because I didn't really have time for a job as well as school etc. Apparently these days mcdonalds is a good place to work, I think it was voted best employer last year

    I work at mcdonalds (have dont for 5 years).
    When i had my interview- they asked about what days/hours i could do, my education (school, 6th form etc), what would i do if a customer complained etc.
    I never did the on the job evaluation- its been introduced since i started, but from what ive seen- you basically get to work on window 3 for a bit. The staff there tell you what to do and how everything works etc. So you will know what to do. Ask plenty of questions and you will be fine.

    Emmamezzo, ok, i'm relieved.. ^^

    Jordan, yes, I think so^^ lol (it was a little confused with those emails but the positive answer was written by the manager himself, so I guess I've got the job xD) I go on Saturday for the welcoming meeting and sign the contract, I will see ^^

    Emma, do you work some nights? I'm a little scared to go back home alone in the middle of the night :/

    Did they give you a date when they said they would let you know by? If they did and it's past the day I'd ring otherwise give them a little bit longer

    Hi, I've worked at McDonalds for nearly 2 years, I'm currently doing last year of sixth form

    You can quit fairly easily, you only need 2 weeks notice, but clear it with your manager first. Also with the nights thing, I used to finish around 10/11 o clock at night and had to go home through a dodgey area but it was absolutely fine! Any other questions give us a shout!

    Hi. I have an interview for a Crew Member job at McDonalds on Wednesday and I'm quite nervous tbh. The McDonald's I've applied to is VERY busy and in quite a dodgy area (in Essex btw). I'm quite shy too, so I'll probably be crap at customer service. Also, I hate kids - not good if its always full of them! I've also heard that the kitchen is very fast paced... and I'm quite laid back and slow, do managers get angry if your not so quick on your feet?

    Can somebody give me advice ASAP on the interview? What are good things to say? What should I say if they ask about dealing with angry customers? please help!

    Thanks
