    I'm just got a job in a M branch in London. But I'm heading to another city for Master's so I can only work in this branch over the 2 summer months, then possibly find another part-time when I arrive to my new uni. Do anybody know if I can keep my job in M and just change the branch I'm working for? I think it's mutually beneficial for M and myself...Have anybody got similar experience?

    And I've told my branch manager I'd like to work in M permanently, I did mean it, just not the same branch. Would he be mad at me when I request to leave after 2 months?

    Couldn't you just re-apply at the new McDonald's if the manager won't have you transfered.

    you can transfer with no problems at all...or you can just become a seasonal employee (if you'll be going back to london for the holidays)

    your manager shouldnt have a problem with this, but if you know your deffinatly going to manchester on a certain date id let him know asap. this creates a transfer easier (as he can do it for you) and also its better for him as he can find your replacement in plenty of time!

    You're doing a Masters degree and would like to work in McDonalds permanently?

    Unless he wants to become a Franchise manager

    I got my job sorted for uni so I can transfer between the two stores when I'm at uni and when I'm subsequently at home.

    McDonalds comes up in The Times' Top 100 places for graduates to work at, in the same league as the top law firms, investment banks, PR/marketing companies etc. You can get a decent salary and start of as a franchise manager upon graduation. But I'd hate to say "I work at McDonalds"...

    Working in M may not look so bad if you are really short of money... I guess no one really likes to work there ba, but it's better than starvation...

    Thanks for your advice. I hope I can find a better job later, but for now, I hope to be able to stick to it after I get to the new place. Let's see what the manager finally says about it...

    Keep it going for now, I was just surprised you seemed to want to carry it on after completing your Masters, where 95% of the time you'd have a lot better career opportunities than Maccies (unless you do want a managerial role).

    Off the topic, McDonald's "I'm lovin' it" slogan plastered across everyone's uniforms is a bit of a cockup when half of them look permanently fed up!

    Thx 4 Jools' advice. Be assured I won't work there really permanently, I just wanted to make the boss happy and get the spending money for the short-run. May I can get to do a PhD after my Econ Master...researching on the Food industry or the McDonald's influence on world economy or something...hahaha...in fact, I'm applying for another job in the bakery in Sainsbury's...i'm interested in doing any job around food ...I might become the only one in M looking excited and happy... :cool:
