I like my job at Maccas

I’ve been working at Maccas for 1.5 years now, and I actually, contrary to most stories you see, actually enjoy it.

Both Sides of the McDonalds Stories

I’ve read several stories about working at McDonald’s and all seem to tell only one side to it. Depending on who’s telling, it can seem like the best job in the world or an absolute hellhole. It’s more like a mixture of both. It has it’s ups and down, just like any other job. Some [...]
