Full Answer

Many McDonald's locations only accept online applications. Mcstate.com allows applicants to search for job openings by position as well as by location. The company also allows potential applicants to sign up for email job alerts that provide notification of new job opportunities as they become available, based on selected criteria.

Once the application process is completed, a member of the human resources team and the hiring manager review the resumes. They contact the applicant if their education, skills, background and experience match the job requirements.

If the applicant is selected, a recruiter contacts them for a follow-up interview. The follow-up interview is conducted by telephone, questionnaire or a combination of both. This interview asks the applicants to provide their strengths, developmental interests, accomplishments, goals and work history as well as salary history and expectations.

Based on the follow-up screening, applicants are invited to an on-site interview with the hiring manager. Multiple visits may be required depending on the size of the hiring team at a specific location.
