A typical day at work can either consist of dealing with many customers and delivering a great customer experience, or working in the kitchen and learning all about the products McDonalds as a company sells.
I have learned many things working at McDonalds. One of these include how to work as a team. This is very important as it's impossible to work a station on your own, putting your trust in your fellow peers really helps to keep the restaurant flowing and can also enable you to develop work relationships with the people around you. I have also learnt the value of money. Being able to earn my own money really helps me to think about how I will use this to benefit my future.
Personally, I think the management within the company I well structured and clear. Managers are always on site to help where needed and are extremely approachable.
The hardest part of the job is the variety in shifts I am given. Some weeks I can be very tired as I may be on early shifts after doing a week of late shifts, however this does help me to deal with working in different times during the day and how to cope when the restaurant gets busy.
The most enjoyable part of the job is the people I work with. I socialise outside of work with them and have made some friends for life.
