Careers rarely develop the way we plan them. Our career path often takes many twists and turns, with particular events, choices and people influencing our direction.
We asked Richard Storey from McDonald's to give some advice for people considering this job:
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!!
