Job Interview Experience [Greggs & McDonalds] | CharlotteBehappy




So I've been on the job hunt for the past few weeks and I'd had an interview at both Greggs and McDonalds and I thought I'd share the process with you.

Greggs
I applied online after seeing an ad on Indeed. It was pretty simple, and they took into account that I was a school child. There pay was about £6 an hour and online they explained the training process as well as the hours. It was very very clear.
I got an email for an interview shortly afterwards and one mistake I made was wearing nail varnish (don't do this because it's against their policy). The manager asked me loads of questions and it was pretty empty but she took me into the back. She explained a lot about how things at Greggs worked and asked me about experience I had and how it was applicable to the job. I'd recommend looking the Greggs website to get an idea of their values etc. She gave me some scenarios, some that weren't too bad and she also asked me about where I live and juggling work and school.
In the end I didn't get the job, I made a few slip ups and also I think I lived a tad too far but it was fairly pleasant.

McDonalds
It's easiest to go straight onto the McDonalds site to search for jobs. Again the application was easy online and also asked scenario based questions. The interview took place in the actual restaurant and most of the questions were asking about the hours I'd work and where I live and what I was doing. The only actual question he asked was why I wanted to work in McDonalds. At this moment, I don't know if I've got the job yet but it was over in about 5 minutes. The email I got said there would be an On Job Evaluation where I would get shown things and would do things but that didn't happen at all. I'm not sure if that's a good sign at all!
