Would you like to take a personality test with that Big Mac?

Well, the fast food giant is reportedly giving potential staff a 23-question multiple choice quiz online before they can submit an application to work in one of their stores.


And it’s harder than you think.


The company says that the questionnaire is designed to 'help McDonald’s understand the position in our team that suits you best.'


While some of the question may seem pretty run-of-the-mill to the average job seeker, others seem easy to fail.


So, while you might think 'hey, it’s easy to get a job at Macca’s', you might want to check out these quiz questions first.
