    Hey all, i work at Mcdonalds, and after seeing the Dairy Queen thread, i thought i would create my own on where i work. I have been working at Mcdonalds since i was 16 so i have been there 5 years, the last two years though i have been at university studying to be a teacher. However if there is anything you would like to know i will answer it to the best of my ability, such as new products, what is actually in the food and how the stores are operated etc.
    Hope to hear from ya all.

    Do you sell alcohol there? I heard you can get alcohol at European McDonalds. And Do you have McMuffins?

    Hi in the UK we dont sell alcohol they do in France though. We do sell McMuffins but they might be different from what you have. They are a breakfast item which come in four varieties: Sausage & Egg, Bacon & Egg, Double Sausage & Egg and Double Bacon & Egg.

    I have a friend who works at McDonalds. He says that there are some weird people. Describe your wierdest customer and what he wanted.

    Are your kitchens truly sanitary? Ever had rodents or crawling insects about? Ever broken the rules and let someone else take the blame?

    Also, whats the inter-work politics like?

    There are some proper dumb people. We offer vouchers to our customers so they get discounts on big macs and fries if bought together etc, because we offer them on the back of bus and train tickets this guy who came into our restaurant today assumed that because he had paid for his bus fare, the price of the big mac and fires had already been paid because he paid for his ticket. I thought that was pretty dumb. we also have customers that a total drunks and assume we are a public toilet an come in and wait 15 minutes not realizing that the toilets are locked at 7pm even though there is a big sign saying so.

    A couple of years ago, when my ship went to Australia, we made a stop in New Caledonia. Because of the french influence, the McDonalds restuarants had Royale with Cheese. I bought and ate one just because. I don't even like McDonalds food. Have you ever read the book Fast Food Nation?

    Sanitary Maybe lol, we use sanitizer to wipe the surfaces down but we get insects all the time, flies, wood-lice and sometimes pigeons lol, one flew in from outside and got really disorientated.
    In the Uk stores there is a very defined management structure, at the top there is the business manager, which is the store manager, they have two assistants and they all wear full on suits. below that there are shift managers they wear coffee coloured shirts with a tie or scarf, below them are floor managers which wear white shirts with a tie or scarf and then below that are crew members which wear t-shirts that a black and brown. People that get to management level beyond floor manager think they have so much power, and if mcdonalds is an employees life they maybe do, they have full control over how many shits a week individual employees get and how many breaks they get.

    all the time, we get people ordering a plain big mac in reality its just a plain double cheeseburger which is a pound cheaper than a big mac, customers dont understand, sometimes people ask for a mac no pickle they are allergic of pickle i say pickles are in the sauce , but the sauce is fine they are not allergic tho those pickles eh.

    Omg omg omg, I have to know this:
    Do you do that 10 second rule? The one that if something falls on the floor/or similar it's fine for 10 seconds so you can pick it up and use it for a burger?

    Ha ha, no. We invented pounds and ounces, for goodness sake! Imperial measurements are still familiar to everyone here even in these metricated times. The "Royale" is the name on continental Europe only.
