    Hmm i wore good clothes, like button up shirt, pants and dress shoes, spoke well, loudly and clearly. I told them my interests, what I wanted to do after school (say you want to pursue a career in the retail industry, they love it) and yeah, its the easiest interview you'll ever do.

    Don't feel too bad about it. Maccas has pretty good training (leadership, teamwork, hygiene (sp?), customer satisfaction) for those elites who pass the interview.

    sounds like a McCopco store, or a really shitty owner/operator

    thanks

    they pay 11.xx for an 18 year old. and 12.73 for a 19 year old. but u also get shiftloading pay , holiday pay , saturdayloading pay . so it ads up. plus if u work past certain hours or more them some amount u get extra . so its not too bad. much better then cash in had where they dont really include any of these extras.

    I don't live in Sydney, but I know that it's mainly chicks that work in mccafe's all over Australia. I think that the cafe atmosphere is suited more towards a girl. There's a lot more small talk needed, so you have to be a girl or a guy with good charisma.

    not neccessarily. our cafe is fairly recent though and we have a few guys working in it and their much more customer orientated or focused or whatever than most of the girls. Besides cafe is a bludge compared to some of the other stations.

    hell no, that's so boring! especially since our first booth is not connected to the store, it's torture being isolated. fries or wrapping are the best, especially wrapping it's easy, you get to talk to everyone whilst pretending your doing something. running is the hardest, especially by youself during a rush

    Hahah, yeah, it's pretty stress free.

    Wrappings only good because you can check out the girls on counter/customers.

    yeah, a reference is usually from a previous employer (though for school students you could use one from a principal, teacher etc) basically recommending you to future employers.
    e.g. "Person x has worked for me for the past 2 years. i have found them to be (insert nice comments here)... I would recommend them to future employers because of said things.

    you get the point.

    I would never work at maccas. I wouldn't last a week I would get sick of it and quit. I have a job now that's a lot better anyway.
