    Re: Quitting McDonalds

    Tell them to fuck off. You don't have to do anything you're told, whether it be by Mc Donald's, or your parents.

    Don't expect a reference though. See the problem is, because you have decided to tell them just now that you plan to quit means they need to come up with a plan so that they're not short staffed tonight, or whenever. You are being an inconvenience for them, but hey, who cares right? It's only a reference.

    Whether its in the award or not doesnt mean common courtesy doesnt come into play.
    Common courtesy? does that even exist anymore?

    Re: Quitting McDonalds

    well the award says you dont need notice.
    so legally you dont.
    but the manager is just trying to cover shifts for the next two weeks or however long. i work at kfc and i know some people who have wanted to quit kept being talked out of it just because we were low on staff and as soon as we got a bunch of trainees in they let them go.

    hey, which state are you in? im 19 in Victoria and get $16.26/hr as a shift supervisor. In Vic shift supervisor/assistant and swing mgr all mean the same thing so do you really get an allowance for being both?

    im pretty sure 18yr olds get 12-14, and the conditions in macdonalds is shit.

    and the reference, isnt it degrading to say you've worked at macdonalds? sure; it'd help getting a job in another fast food place, but what about a good white collar one?

    some menial jobs are good for getting a real one, this isnt one of them as far as im concerned
    macca's training is widely known to be very good and looked at with appreciation rather than disdain in many white collar areas

    hehe, looks like there's a little subculture of maccas managers on BOS.

    I'm 19, shift supervisor in NSW at a McOpCo store and I get $18.80, but I reckon I earn every cent of it.

    Managers always get payed for 8 hour shifts but on average I probably do about 10 hours... yesterday I did a 13 hour shift because we were ridiculously short-staffed.

    Re: Mcdonalds interview

    Goddamn. I'm 18 and work at Bakers Delight as a senior shop girl, and I only get $10.10 an hour, no matter when I work - Saturdays, Sundays, early mornings, holidays, it's all the same. There isn't really any proper overtime, though if it's excessive I guess we can ask our boss.

    The only good thing about it is during the uni semester I can cut my shifts down to practically nothing and not be fired, then work a lot during the holidays.

    I think on this pay I'd rather be at McDonalds.

    Re: Mcdonalds interview

    Ive been working at maccas now for around 3 years.... I am 17 and get around $10 hr, and $15 on sundays + loading and laundry (i work in both kitchen and counter/ order taker). Its good in some ways, they hired out dreamworld for the night last year and 15 people from our store got to go (incl me!), it was an awesome night and they had a band and fireworks and stuff, and it was all free, including food! Weve had some pretty awesome pickle fights and sauce packet stomping events, as well as playing frisbee in the kitchen... I get along well with most of the managers, however they all have their moody moments...

    BUT!!! In other ways it really sucks... i have asked for only one shift a week this year coz school, yet i am still given more shifts, and they refuse to let me swap them... One of the girls that used to wrk there was made to scrub out the toilet with a toothbrush because she was bludging..... Hehe, theyre gunna hate me when i ask for 7 weeks off over the hsc though!!

    Oh!!! and we get to wear shrek ears atm, so that is pretty cool!!!!!!!
    if life is like a piano. White keys for happiness, and black keys for sorrow... Can i please play in c major!!!

    Are you caught up in a scrum of dumb?

    Serious! thats really rude... b4 i put my shifts back, theyd give me 3 shifts a week ( like 20 hours all up). And even now they still ring me up and beg me to work for them at least once a week, eventhough i said i dont want the work.

    Re: Quitting McDonalds

    I think it would be REALLY horrible to not give them 2 weeks notice and your resignation in writing. McDonald's has been so kind to employ you, so you should be kind in return and just help out a little bit longer.

    Re: Quitting McDonalds

    I quit Maccas in May.

    I just gave them an resignation letter that said after the shift I have already been rostered, I wil quit. That was about 4 days notice.

    Re: Wierd Mcdonalds Interview?

    when i went for my mcdonalds interview, it lasted for about 5 minutes and 3 minutes later i got an email from them saying that i got accepted. i suppose the mcdonalds u applied to are desperate for workers, like the one i had the interview for

    technically he's not really "helping out" there, he's working for them and he gets paid..not like its voluntary. and places like maccas generally arent that hard to get work with, so its not like they've gone out of their way to employ an extra person. if he wants to leave for one reason or another, he's got a right to go...and according to the award he doesnt have to give a certain period of notice, so its not like they can sue him or something.

    sasquatch: as others have said, 2wks notice gives them time to organise for people to cover your shifts. and i guess them wanting it in writing makes it a bit more official than just saying "yeah, i'm not coming back".
    then again, at one of my past jobs i was on-call/casual. i had to stop working for a while caus of a tafe prac and their form of 'firing' me was just not calling me in to work again. so i guess at least you actually told them that you werent coming back..that's really as much 'common courtesy' as you HAVE to give without going so formal about it (though it means you usually wont expect to get a reference from them in the future)
