Fry Cook Interview

Fry Cook

Interviewed at McDonald's

Interview Details It was hard and difficult to understand the questions and direction of this company. They have you looking at the counter, then the station and tell how to sell us more. You also have to see how fast you put down the fries and how long to bring them up. It was pressure filled and hard.

Shift Manager Interview

Shift Manager

I applied in-person and the process took 1 week - interviewed at McDonald's in October 2013.

Interview Details It was relatively easy, just your basic questions about your experience in management. After that they move on to how well you handle stressful situations, how well you get along with others, and how you prioritize. The process is in two parts first you will speak to the area supervisor. This person is in charge five to six restaurants. Then general manager of the restaurant of your initial assignment. After that you may be assigned to another restaurant or simply left there depending on need.

Interview Question – It is not one I tripped up on, but one that is not always answered correctly. The prospective manger is asked " There is spill on the floor, the ketchup dispenser is empty and you need more happy meal boxes. Which problem do you take care of first"? The correct answer is the spill. Although you may be inclined to provide great customer service and refill the ketchup dispenser, or get the drive-thru line moving by getting more boxes. Your chief responsibilities are customer safety and company liability. That means you not only have to place a wet floor sign on or near the spill, but cleaning it up immediately.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Very easy, the general manager decided pay rates and was usually done after the second interview.
