My sister has been offered a interview, she wants to know will she do a trial run ie working on tils as part of interview. She also wants to know what the pay is like, and are there any tricky questions they ask?

Obviously each one is different, but from what I have heard they treat their staff pretty well in comparison to other companies.

+ 1! The longer you work there the more you get paid (the bigger the pay increments are)

LOL.
"Would you like fries with that?", "Is that your order complete?", "Can you park in Bay2, and we'll bring it out to you when we can be arsed?"

I don't think the questions will be any more taxing than these examples.
Years ago I used to work for them, interviews were a case of "when are you available to work" if you said you can work weekends then you are almost guaranteed the job, in 2 1/2yrs there I only can think of one person who didn't get the job in interview.

As for a trial shift, no they wont ask her to do that, they will just give her an induction and start date (most likely there and then).

As for pay, it depends where you are, in areas with high unemployment it is going to be minimum wage, if there is a shortage of people in the area and lots of other, higher paid employment opportunities in factories and the like it will be in line with what they pay. Simple case of supply and demand.

Thats an amazing idea...longer you work there..the more you get payed...Wish my work could come up with that idea :whistling:
It seems to vary but generally less than £5 an hour :?
Used to work there when i was studying....... worked myself from doing the burgers to management. It was well fun.......... just let her know, she will be working Non-stop during December!!:santa:
Thanks for all the comments
She should have had an email or text confirming what they're doing. But since you don't seem to have had it, she'll have an interview, usually with a salaried manager. Then she'll go on a tour of the store and have a short "OJE", which stands for "on the job evaluation". Mine consisted of handing out orange juice to customers on drive-thru. It won't be a hard task by any means, but it'll give her a chance to impress.

The interview doesn't ask any taxing questions.. just hobbies, availability etc.

Of course, this is just what I do in my store as one of the people in charge of recruitment. Other stores may differ.

Everyone will probably get asked slightly different questions, but the way we do it is to have their application info infront of us, so everything she typed in on the online form. This includes name, address, phone number etc, availability, hobbies, and school grades. There were also a couple of boxes to write personal statements and other information about herself. If she remembers everything she wrote there, and can have a conversation based on it, I'm sure she'll do just fine :).

Make sure she doesn't turn up in jeans and a t-shirt! Black trousers and a white shirt are the way to go :).

Thanks for the info really appreciate it
What do you know about the bun cupboard?
When she gets the job, make sure they have a structured training plan so she can get all 5 stars as quickly a possible.......I prefer to be served by someone who has all 5 stars as I then know they know what they are doing......
