Jobs at McDonald’s

More than likely, as I have, you’ve been to McDonald’s. In fact, I’ve been to McDonald’s many, many times. I love McDonald’s. I moved to Oklahoma after living in Texas for 15 years. I was so excited to send my sister back in Austin a postcard from the McDonald’s On I-44 in Vinita, Oklahoma. This is the 29,135-square-foot restaurant that spans over the entire Will Rogers Turnpike.

The only thing I said on the back of the postcard was: “Not everything is bigger in Texas.”

My “go-to” has mainly been a Quarter Pounder w/cheese, large fry. Although I was on a chicken sandwich kick in high school and have enjoyed many double fish sandwiches too. However, recently it’s been back to the classic, a #1: Big Mac. My secret ingredient is placing a layer of fries on my sandwich.

McDonald’s has been a staple of American Pop Culture since the mid-’50s and now, of course, is worldwide.

But what about behind the counter? As we approach summer break, many students will be looking for summer time jobs. I sat with a regional owner of several area McDonald’s, Bob Wagner, about the benefits of working at the Golden Arches.
