My dad always used to tell me how important it was to get out there and get some real skills, and since I started at McDonald’s, I definitely have. I work the busy early shift, so as well as practical things, I’ve learnt to cope under pressure but still take pride in my work – a great skill for the future.
I hadn’t worked much before this, so I was pretty nervous on my first day. I wasn’t sure how I’d cope with the pressure – or all the new people! But I shouldn’t have worried. Everyone has been really supportive and now I can see that this is a great place for me to learn and grow.
