McDonalds
February 1st, 2017

McDonald's has been a staple to all workers beginning their career. If you lack work experience and have a will to work, you can start your career fairly quickly at any McDonald's restaurant.

The hiring process at McDonald's is relatively straightforward. Dress well for your interview, but hold back on the business suit. Khakis and a dress shirt will suffice. The interviewer will ask what types of after school programs you are involved in, be sure to tell them the truth. Know which days you would like to work beforehand and remember working on weekends is almost a must. Tell the interviewer you are a very precise individual. McDonald's does not want to hire anyone who arrives late to work. Present the interviewer with examples of when you worked hard in your life. Tell them how important this job is to you.
