Recruitment Process

Step One – Online application form

The first step starts right here in the form of an online application form and quiz. You can apply to up to 10 restaurants within one application. As part of the application process you will be asked to complete a short quiz made up of multiple choice questions. This will help McDonald's understand which position in our team would suit you best.

  • We want to make sure that we make this easy for you, so make sure you have the following info at your fingertips before you start the application:
    • Your contact details including personal email address
    • Right to work information if applicable
    • Dates and details of any work history
    • Current contact details of at least two referees (one personal and one business or academic)
  • Also, think about the hours and days that you’re available to work, taking into consideration school, sports and outside commitments.

Step Two – Interview

If your application looks good you will be invited via email to an interview. The interview normally takes place at the restaurant and should take approximately 30 minutes. The interview consists of a face-to-face interview and may also include a brief on the job experience.

The interview gives both you and McDonald's the chance to see if we are right for each other.

  • Print off your application form and don't forget to bring along any supporting documentation that you may need, such as your passport, birth certificate, or if applicable, right to work permit.
  • You may like to think about the answers to the following questions:
    • Why do you want to work at Macca's?
    • Examples of a situation where you have worked or participated in a team.
  • Wear something clean and smart that you feel comfortable in. It is okay to come in your school uniform. Ensure that you wear closed low-heeled, non-skid shoes.

Step Three - Reference checks

We may conduct a reference check to confirm any information that may assist us with your application. This could be with your previous employer, school teacher or family friends.

  • Don't forget to let your referee(s) know that we may call.
