    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeksinterviewed at McDonald's (Brisbane) in April 2015.

    Interview

    I applied online through metime and a few weeks later I got an email inviting me in for an interview. The interview was then another few weeks later.

    The interviewer came out and guided me to a private area and he asked a few general questions like, "What did you do today?" And "What are you studying at uni?". They want to know what kind of responsibilities you have. This was followed by a few basic questions and a whole heap of situational questions like, "You're cleaning the bench and a customer walks in, how would you greet them?" Or "A customer makes a mess and seems embarrassed about it, what do you do?" It's all common sense. What they want to hear is that you're friendly, willing to engage in small talk, customer orientated and like teamwork. They don't expect you to know everything. My interviewer even guided me to the right answer if I only answered partially right.

    I heard that they usually tell you whether you're hired in the interview, but I received an email from them five days after the interview telling me that I got the job.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at McDonald's (Lake Illawarra) in March 2015.

    Interview

    They did a group interview process/ speed interview process. The manager told me they were bulk hiring because they were opening up a new section. They sat 4 interviewees on four tables and had four interviewers (Store manager, assistant manager, and two others) and spent four minutes with each person asking general questions before moving on to the next table. NOTE: I only went for the interview yesterday so they have not got back to me yet whether I have got the job or not.

    Interview

    She came out, shook my hand and we sat down at a table. Friendly chatter for a moment or two before she went through my online application asking and clarifying a few things - availability, references, salary expectations. She was friendly throughout the whole process and gave me feedback of how I went and what I could have said to make myself sound even better (which was extremely helpful).

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at McDonald's.

    Interview

    So far, I have my interview booked for in 6 days, so I will speak about the initial McDonald's Australia process.

    On the metime website, McDonald's career portal, you initially take about 10-15 mins to fill out an account, after which you'll get your log on ID number. You apply for the job you'd like, at whichever location you want, which takes about 15-20mins. It asks you everything from availability to scenario questions, such as those I'll include below. I heard back from 1 store (maximum of 10 on one application) within 12 hours. I booked in my interview time and here I am.

    Fast and easy system.

    It was rather a fast but relaxed interview.
