Just was wondering what kind of questions they ask you...The girl said to bring my social security card and my working papers, sounds like I might be hired on the spot. So yeah, what do they ask you and whats the process after they hire you?

Hey, unfortunatley i live on the other side of the world, but most mcdonalds interviews are generic.
You will likley be asked why you want to work there, asked about things you put in your application, asked about yourself things like that.
The social security and working papers would be to make sure your allowed to work, and i doubt they hire peopel onn the spot, i know we dont, but usually you get a reply by email or letter or the way you applied ;)

They hire you, you work in the part of the restaurant that you elect or that they choose for you, where you may be a trainee and then eventually you will become a normal employee...at least that is what we do here..i dont know about america.

Everything is pretty easy at mcdonalds, just wear something remotley respectable, but not too formal, try to sound comfortable and just relax :)

The orientation just takes you through the store and shows you the basic stuff (where you'll be working, fire extinguishers, gets you acquainted with the Store Manager, etc.). It will also get your file set up for getting paid.

Standard business etiquette is to allow for five days before calling them back to figure out what's going on.

How long it will take will depend on what the Store Manager needs to get ready and prepared before you come in for your orientation. If he hasn't called you back by Wednesday, call the store to see what they're doing.

If you're going for an orientation then it means you're hired... they're not going to open the doors and crew-only areas to someone who just "might" be hired.

Thanks for the info guys!

I came into Mcdonalds actually today and i applied for a job and the store manager told me to come for an orientation TOMORROW!

does that mean hes screwing around with me or is the restaurant really desperate for workers?

If you're going in for orientation, you've been hired. He'd have to be a pretty risky guy to just "joke" about you coming in for an orientation.

I just had an interview with Dairy queen yesterday and I have been searching for a job for over a year and it was my 1st time I ever made it to the interview process. The manager went over my app and had me pick out a hat and my shirt size...then told me to come in on saturday to get my working permit signed. Does that mean I was hired? I was going to ask him on the sat but I don't want to sound like a complete idiot. Not to mention he never asked me to bring in my SS card...

This forum is for McDonald's. Dairy Queen can go die as they are far inferior to the superior class and quality of McDonald's.
