I applied in-person and the process took 5 days - interviewed at McDonald's in July 2008.

Interview Question – Why do you want this job?   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – they give you 1 month trial which is just there for what i believe to be legal reasons because i have never seen anyone being told they have not passed their probationary period unless they were causing problems
