Niece of mine is thinking about working at Maccas in the kitchen.
Has anyone worked in this position or at another fast food outlet in the kitchen?
She'd just like to know how they train newbies to remember all the different burger recipes(big mac, mcspicy, etc). Do they have something on the wall with photos of all the different burgers and what goes in them?

McDonalds have one of the best training programs I have seen. I believe you can gain NZQA standards through them.

I was a pizza slave, had a list of what went on on the wall. But you get to remember it pretty we'll after a week or so

My oldest daughter has worked at both Maccas and at Burgerfuel. She loved Maccas, they treat their staff fairly, their training is awesome and they're also pretty good at rostering staff without screwing them over.  Same cannot be said for Burgerfuel.

Training is pretty hands on and they're very precise with the ingredients that go into each burger. If you have a bright kid that doesn't panic easily, she'll be just fine. :)

I worked for Georgie Pie back in the days, lasted 3 years (was about to be made supervisor/assistant manager) when McD's came along and canned all training etc. Was like any first job, actual work was boring but made fun, mainly because you were working with people in the same position as you.  Made some good friends who I still keep in contact with today.

I dont know how McD's handle it, but at GP if you were a crew member, you worked all stations, not just one. So I learnt the full running of the place, from cleaning the floors all the way through to baking and basic supervising etc.

Have personally worked for BurgerKing and McD's,   The training in both places is very hands on, and fast paced.
you learn pretty quickly what goes in each burger etc, and after roughly 4-5hrs you've already remembered what goes in and in what order, to this day i can still remember how to make a whopper burger from start to finish and the way Bk wraps it's burgers, and I havent worked for them in over 10 years.

Worked in Edinburgh during Hogmanay (New year) in Maccas while traveling - lived off free burgers :) Training was good and people great. Go for it - ideal starting job.

Curious. Wonder if anyone here has worked at an (overseas) outlet that uses Kiosks.
