Just askin' its my first real job interview.
Also possible: Why do you want to work at McDonalds? What exactly can you tell us about our company? Ans: It all began in 1937 when Patrick McDonald opened an airport restaurant in Monrovia, California named “The Airdrome” with very cheap food and drinks. Then the two sons of Patrick moved the restaurant in San Bernardino, California and renamed it to “McDonalds” How would you handle a situation regarding an angry customer that keeps complaining about a product or service? Do you desire to be hired part time only or you have plans for a career at McDonalds? What do you expect from this job? 5 years from now, how do you see your future? ......GOOD LUCK !!
I worked for BurgerKing a while ago same as Mcdonalds. Their not going to ask hard questions just for a cashier position. They will ask about school, your age, what your avalibility will be (what hours you can work & what days). If you had prior work experenice or your first job. If it isn't your first job then maybe some situations how you would handle a customer in this situation. (Always make the customer satisfied in all your answers!) If you can handle fast pace. and why you wanna work there.
They are looking for well rounded people who are honest, responsible, pleasant and aren't afraid of hard work. Don't worry about "gotcha" questions. Just answer sincerely and try to put your achievements in their best light. If you don't have an answer for a question just say so and move on instead of trying to wing it. Interviewers love it when applicants ask questions since it shows interest on their part but don't force it if you don't have questions.
as I just saw your 48 yrs old, so they will ask you that knowing you've had experience and probably a lot harder questions then to her which could be her first job, where she only has a little if any. How would she know her strengths and weaknesses if this is her first job. She won't know that answer containing to a workplace.
Angie: considering the turnover rate in fast food they are more concerned that you will stick around 6 months rather than be a lifer. Sometimes flippant answers like "as your boss" impress interviewers but more often they appear forced and inappropriate.
you're probably right. but it never hurts to be prepared for unexpected questions. oh, and by the way, the word is "pertaining." as in "pertaining to a workplace." guess that probably comes from being 48 yrs old too :)
maybe they've asked me the more serious questions because i'm older. i don't know. i just know that i've been asked those questions in several interviews from taco bell to petco
QUESTIONS: What skills do you have ? What would qualify you to work here ? Tell me about your school courses..GPA, etc ...Out of everyone here, why should I hire you ?
just a side note...when asked where do you see yourself in 5 years the answer they are looking for is "in a management position with this company."
employers these days also really do ask "What do you consider to be your 2 biggest weaknesses," and "What are your 2 biggest strengths?"
i recently applied for a part time job at taco bell and they really did ask me about my strengths and weaknesses. just saying
Nice dress pants, like joe said, and a nice shirt. Make sure you look clean, and well-put together.
Thats taco bell, every company is different, as to what state your from and how old you are.
i would wear like a dress or nice dress pants
No its not your lucky then
