    Hey everyone 💓
    So I got an OJE and interview at McDonald’s for next Wednesday. I’m quite worried about it all, as it’s my first real interview for a job, but weirdly, I’m really worried about wearing a coat. Since it just snowed 2 days ago, I don’t trust the weather at all. But the coat I have is very practical, keeps me warm, is long and quite puffy. Not a ‘for fashion’ or ‘formal’ coat as people would say. I’m travelling out of town for this interview (not too far, about 20 minutes and have to walk to the bus station from my house (about 10 minutes) so I really would like to wear my coat. But what do I do? Forget it and freeze to death? Or wear it and awkwardly ask for somewhere to put it?
    Haha I know it’s weird that this is my biggest concern but honestly I can predict the interview, but not this awkward encounter.
    Thanks!x

    You can always remove the coat once there. No interviewer will judge you based on you being thoughtful. Bring it with you.

    what's with everyone on TSR applying to McDonald's tonight?!

    Don't worry, you can wear a coat, haha. Just ask the manager where you can put it out of the way.

    If you have any other concerns feel free to ask!

    Haha I thought that too, so many people and nobody with the same concern as me, I guess everyone else worries more about the actual interview!
    Thank you for your help and thank you 💓

    When I did my interview it was a cold but I just braved it as I didn't have a suitable blazer or jacket that looked formal enough. Baring in mind though this was June in England! I would just bring the coat and take it off at the interview and then leave it on the chair do the OJE and go back and get it. I brought a bag with me and I remember one of the guys who worked there put it in the back office for me, while I did my OJE.

    hi there,

    yeah sure, I'll be happy to help you!

    DO'S:
    -Dress smartly (don't worry about overdressing)
    -Try to smile not only at the customers but the guys working there - radiate a positive attitude about yourself
    -Ensure you greet customers appropriately: "Good morning sir/ma'am, how are you today?" is always good or anything which you're comfortable enough saying
    -If you're on drive thru, ask if customers want any condiments (napkins, sauces, milk et cetra...)
    -Farewell customers appropriately "Thank you, see you later." cannot go wrong

    DON'T:
    -pretty much common sense and the opposite of above. don't use words like "lad" or slang words, especially infront if more mature customers.
    -dont be a depressing c**t. this is an issue I have sometimes, especially towards the end of a long shift but when talking, put the effort into sounding approachable and friendly
    -dont be shy; talk!

    it's very simple to be honest, don't overthink it much. honestly, I'm not the most approachable guy but have a positive attitude and you'll do fine.

    any more questions/concerns, ask away!

    Also, I know the email says you can either wear trousers or skirt, but is there one you suggest? I can’t find my trousers and was going to wear a skirt but my friends don’t suggest that.
    And do I take my record of achievement? I was going to anyway but is there any need?
    Thanks so much for your help! I’m usually a really confident person and know that my OJE will probably go well because I’m usually approachable but I panic at the thought of an interview (literally, a million and more panic attacks come my way when even thinking about an interview)
    And you’ve beeen so much help thank you so much!

    I'd go for trousers and yes, take any records of achievement, can't go wrong with that!

    that's everything really so good luck and let me know how you get on!
