7/14/08 - New McDonald's Update

No, I'm not going back to work for the fast food chain. I did want to pass on some information that I learned about last night.

We decided to have Arby's for dinner last night, so after getting my wife's order, I headed on up to the local Arby's which is a little more than a mile down the road. Our house has great location including a Subway, Rally's, Arby's, Burger King, Zaxby's, Taco Bell, McDonald's and KFC within a mile and a half. That doesn't include the sushi place, Casa Mexicana, and Shotgun Dan's.

Anyways, the lady who took my order was the same lady that trained me during my first few days at McDonald's. She didn't recognize me until I explained who I was, and then she started talking to me about all the people we used to work with.

I'd like to use names, but for reasons unknown, I don't feel comfortable adding them.

- My trainer had obviously moved on to working at Arby's.
- The guy who I worked with in the back every night is no longer there, no word where he went.
- My favorite manager now works at Wendy's.
- The General Manager now works at Burger King.
- One of the other ladies I worked with works at a different Burger King.
- A different lady is apparently deceased...I didn't ask questions.
- The only person still working is the guy who I mentioned could clean the place like nobody else. He had only recently come back to work there, and I didn't find out why he had left to begin with.

There were a few other people who I had worked with on and off, but I can only assume that they were no longer employed there. Although I had anticipated that there was high turnover, I was somewhat surprised that no one had stayed there for the last 6 months. In fact, most of them had moved on to other jobs within just weeks of when I had left.

I seriously doubt there will be any more followups, but I'm pretty sure that if I were to go back for dinner sometime, I wouldn't know a single person working. I might do that just to see...although I doubt it.
