The initial couple of days can be tough as you are in training and it can make people rethink about working here, but I would have to say persevere, as there are rewards at the end of the tunnel.

McDonald's put their people first and never leave them doing the same job all the time. To work in McDonald's you requires patience, a good personality with a willingness to learn something new everyday.

Showing an interest in other peoples interests would help as you have to work as a team so interpersonal skills are ESSENTIAL!!

Realist?
Realist
Realists are usually interested in 'things' - such as buildings, mechanics, equipment, tools, electronics etc. Their primary focus is dealing with these - as in building, fixing, operating or designing them. Involvement in these areas leads to high manual skills, or a fine aptitude for practical design - as found in the various forms of engineering.

Realists like to find practical solutions to problems using tools, technology and skilled work. Realists usually prefer to be active in their work environment, often do most of their work alone, and enjoy taking decisive action with a minimum amount of discussion and paperwork.

Application procedure
There is a new entry procedure for the Bachelor of Science (Honours) Sport Science degree. Students now have the option to choose either a common entry option at CAO stage and choose a specialist area after Year 2 or can choose a specialist area at CAO stage. Applicants who select a specific degree option (i.e. CW178 SES or SCO) are guaranteed a place on that course subject to meeting the entry requirements and points.

Common Entry (CEY)
By choosing CEY Common Entry applicants are applying for a place on the course but postponing the decision as to which science speciality to opt for until the end of Year 2. This allows students time to explore the future career choices open to graduates in the different specialism streams.
