I'm thinking about applying at mcdonalds.

I have a couple questions. Is it easy? What will I do there? Is it as bad as every says? And will I get discounted food? Do you get a raise?

Every job has its easy & hard parts. Sometimes they're very busy, like at lunchtime, and other times it can be slow. At first they'll probably train you to do one job at a time. You'll be expected to keep things clean, and other responsibilities. I do believe they allow you one free meal, but I could be wrong. And yes, you should get a raise after a certain time and if you earn it by your hard work. Try to be helpful, friendly, and make yourself very useful. It won't be long before you get the hang of it. And congratulations for doing this!

That was my second cousins first job, after one year he was promoted to assistant trainer. So he got to train the newbies. So there is room to move up and make a little extra. I don't think it as horrible as everyone says, the worst is dealing with the customers and the grease. So make sure to wash up every night. And yes, discounted food.

Fast food is a great teen job. Its not all happy happy joy joy but its a good learning experience. No its not always easy but no job is. Youll be paid min wage for your area and min wage rarely gets a raise. Discounted food is up to the manager or owner but the places i worked when i was younger gave 10-20% discounts. A pizza place i worked allowed us one meal free within reason. Like pasta or nachos or a personal size pizza plus sodas free. as for what youll do? whatever the manager tells you to do. Cook, take orders, wash dishes, mop, clean bathrooms, food prep, etc.

Start most likely with min wage. Can get a raise once each year with max of 25 cents if you are excellent. No one gets it but with hard work you get 20 cent raise. after 2 months you should know how to do everything in your area, be it grill or frontline. Be friendly with coworkes and you will do great. Customers are the worst part of job. They work really well with schedules also especially if you get along with the schedule manager which I recommend. Other than that they don't expect much. You'll be fine:)
