    I know this is kind of a lame question but I'm a pretty shy person, is that gonna effect me ? (I'm probably not gonna do the cashier part anyway) like I'm scared that I'm gonna not make any friends there and that they're gonna be like wat older people working there and I will kinda be loner

      Lara S I was like that at first, now I'm like a completely different person, after a while you'll come out of your shell and make loads of friends.
      I was terrified that no one souls like me and I would be terrible, but it really ended up working out perfectly and now I know loads of people and know what I'm doing with many things

      Yajaira Quinteros I just saw these now😬 but I just turned 16 a month or two ago and I still haven't got the nerve to go into a place and ask for an application like I know this one pizza place near me is hiring but do I just like go in and ask for an application and leave or should I buy something and do I fill the application in the place or take it back later?! I have a lot of anxiety haha

  • Adriana Rodriguez

    yesterday was my first day and this is how it went: first leading up to getting the job since i’m 15 and they don’t want to hire many 15 year olds i had to keep coming up to the mcdonald’s and checking on my application every week until i finally got hired and filled out the paper work (took like a month-2 months) then i finally went in yesterday and worked 4 hours (idk why she gave me baby ass hours bc its summer and i can work 30 hours a week but she only gave me 12 this week) and i had to wait for my uniform THE PANTS ARE NOT VERY COMFORTABLE i can hardly bend down in them and their not very breathable but it’s okay bc i really need this job the shirt is pretty comfortable so yea i finally begsn working at the register and they gave me someone to train me but she really didn’t even do that much i had to watch the other lady at the register and i finally began to get it!! if you pay attention it’s not really that hard to work the screen although it looks very confusing. so yea i did pretty good and was eventually able to take orders by myself fairly quick. there was one or two rude customers and i also had to wipe tables off and sweep the lobby and dry the trays. overall I LIKE IT A LOT AND ITS A LOT BETTER THAN SITTING HOME DOING NOTHING however my back was hurting after like two hours 💀 also since i’m 15 i don’t have to go in the back and cook and come home smelling like grease which is a plus!

    McDonald’s is my first job and still is I work at the counter or cashier for 4 months and it’s been fun but when I first got the job I dident expect how much you have to do as cashier you don’t just stay at the register the whole time there’s a shit ton of stuff

      Oh okay, that’s good that you like it! What you can do is ask to be on the register if that is what you want to do. Where I’m from, fries and register go hand in hand so just ask!

    you seem like a very beautiful and intelligent girl and by the way you have a beautiful smile why the hell you even working at that place. I live in a little town called Columbia City Indiana and I'm not happy with my McDonald's every time that I order my daughter a Happy Meal she gets extra fries because she doesn't want the apples they never give her her extra fries this happens on a daily basis and on top of that I asked for no pickles and they always put pickles on they never give me Straws or napkins I never get crappy until today from the lady like snatch my bag back and I asked to speak to her manager and she ignored me I grab the bag back and I told her I'm never coming back here again tell me why they are like this I understand that you guys get busy but they were not busy at all this is insane? She already had an attitude and then they also added to my order a blueberry topper muffin which I paid for so I took it anyhow but it doesn't matter because I never ordered it why can they never get their order straight you're gorgeous by the way.

  • Entertainment Network

    I almost had a job at Mcdonalds, had orientation, but was unable to make it because my car got trapped in the snow x.x

      DIANE C ENAID  Year ago +1

      Yes, it's a difference when you look at the numbers but just remember... $500 USD is about $648 at this very moment. The currency is different which simply means the US dollars are more valuable than Canada's.
