This still bugs me to this day. As a senior in High school I signed up for work experience for credit thru school and I kept after the manager at McDonalds. I finally got hired and a few of my friends from school were working there too. Exactly one month later to the day, the manager shows me the work schedule and says "you'll notice I dont have you scheduled for work in the future and today is your last day." I was in disbelief. I found out later from my friends that they found out that the manager wanted good looking girls to work the cash register out front to attract the male customers.
I wasnt ugly just overweight. This was was over 30 years ago. Thanks Bill Swan for my first experience in size discrimination and what low self esteem can do for you. I have NEVER forgotten it.

Perhaps if you'd lose the weight you could have kept your job. It's not his fault you're fat.

I love:
the concept of maccys,
the rules are there to help you,
the store manager cares about you
the money is decent for a non qualified job
its extremely flexible
the community within the staff

I hate:
Actually working the floor
Moody middle managers
the way pay rise reviews come just before the anual minimum pay rises
the way people gossip like a soap opera

If you guys ONLy have rude customers, and "duchebag" fellow employees, maybe that says more about your country, and how the general population is there, than McDonalds itself. The fact is, Here in Norway, it's NOT like that at all. Most customers are just as polite at McDonalds, as they would be in any other store, gas station, resturant or whatever.
Maybe we're just more siviliced people? God knows... but og yeah... a 17 Mcdonalds worker make $us11 an houes as starting salary, 14 and over if your over 18.
And no, I have NEVER hear anyone here, considering/badmouthing people working at McDonalds, to be any lesser than any other citicen. It's a entry level job for chrissake. What do you expect? Doctors salary and status?
And yeah, ALL workers here get 30min brake during a 8 hour work day. So you getting 45 mins, I would say was actually quite good.
Stop bashing maccas just because it's become the "normal" thing to do... get a life, and your own opinions, learn to be brave and actually see that Mcdonalds actually can be a valuable place to learn stuff early on in your working career. If you dont see that McDonalds is one of the most highly advanced, and calculated businesses logisicswise there is, you seriously need to go back to school.
And yea, I have a masters degree, guess that makes me intelligent enough to realise McDonalds is actually a VERY interesting business, which alot of other businesses and individuals could learn valuable lessons from.

That's really not the way your store should be running. Have you talked to anyone about ensuring that changes?

Jesus christ Unknown27 you really are a naive asswipe, stop standing up for mcdonalds! Karye was right, right about every sodding manager in mcdonalds, we are slave labor you wanker, 2 quid less on our paycheck and something tells me I would be working for nikey producing trainers abroad. no doubt your next retarded comment will be to ask me why I still work there? probably because the worlds gone to hell and my run down little town only has room for spanner monkeys and bare knuckle laborers, what the world needs right now is less assholes like you telling people with sound of mind that MCD is a company that cares, stop wasting everyones time with single sentences that twist other peoples good points into one lined insults directed back at them or a statement that their store is just a little misunderstood.

I guess you're just not cut out to work at McDonald's. You might as well quit and go on welfare if you can't even handle an entry-level McDonald's job...

I don't get paid in pence, and I'm not manager, I'm A manager. I guess your B marks weren't in English, were they?

You don't give up do you, how about you live a lonely pointless existence, your family doesn't love you, your no doubt disfigured, I hope you die from a painful long term disease like cancer, and weirdly enough it was in English and wow out of my entire response you managed to pick up the one letter that didn't exist rather than taking on board the point that you sir are a.. screw it I'm bored with you now I have a life.. think I might have some popcorn..
