I had an interview on friday for a job in McDonalds.
It was quite surreal, I asked about it and got told to sit on a chair in the restaurant, all on my own with people staring at me lol. Then a youngish man came along with my application printed out and questioned me for about 15 minutes. He then offered me a job saying that he thought I was a suitable person. I thought this was weird because I've recently had 9 job rejections (all group interviews) and the first solo interview I am accepted?
Im going to be rung tomorrow about an orientation, and he said my hours would be 9 hours a weekend. Would I have to do anything on this Orientation except fill in forms and I assume watch Health and Safety presentations? I've been told to bring in a bank statement, NI number and Passport.
Im currently 17, any idea how much I will be paid? The store is on its own within a retail park so I'm assuming its owned by the McDonalds restaurant chain, and not by a franchise? I thought it would be rude to ask at the interview so chickened out. From what I've seen its from £4.20-£5.25 an hour. I think I'll be the lowest?
Also, I heard that you could get a free meal at lunchtime on your break. Is this true, or is it ok to bring your own food to eat? If the free meal was true, I can't imagine eating McDonalds every week is healthy?
Finally, I took this job as it was the first I was offered. Do people really get that much stick for working in McDonalds or is it not a bad place to work at all? I thought it would be quite good on a CV as a large company who has (high?) standards has accepted to employ you?
