View Full Version : McDonalds (and others) Flagging Out!

I had the misfortune to be in London today and dropped into McDonalds on the off-chance off meeting a Five-Star team leader who may have a lead on a job (Hell, it's worked in my career to date....)

Imagine my horror when I got to the counter and the operator of the till was some Euro-teen who could barely speak English! What the hell are McDonalds playing at? If they don't invest in indigenous staff the fast food industry is just ******ed.

In my experience you always need a Mc-3-star or higher to get any level of service. McPrivates just don`t cut it at the fast food front line - they need to get some time in the rear echelons first!
The dawn onslaught of multi nationals can max out even the most till hardened assistant.
But I symapthise with your plight of the language barrier. Last week I had to deal with a 3 word of english, mexican assistant who understood my bacon/Mcdouble cheesburger meal with sprite as two chesseburgers, small fries and no drink. Well done McDonalds! :rolleyes:

Then I can assume you didn't get the present either?
