To work closes and weekends whilst studying for A-levels is a very stupid thing to do.

Yes I agree they are good at giving you time
off, but when it comes to changing your
availibility to hours which dont suit, in a
crew-strapped non-franchaisee restaurant here
in the south its met with hostility.

decent A-Levels will get you way further than
saying "I was a 5-star crew member"

I didnt know they did 8% pay increases, how
can you say your due it? Does your store do
PR's in advance? Surely when you move to
Floor manager your wage goes to the starting
rate of a floor manager there-by wiping out
your PR. McDonalds are very clever at
avoiding paying crew.

I suppose McDonalds store managers have to come
from somewhere.

name? I'd get the sack if I identified myself.
