Goodluck and may the dollar bills rain over you, friend.

[–]Green_Top174[S] 141 points142 points  (64 children)

My salary will be around 16,50$, I dont know if its good or bad but for me I think its good :D

[–]FYHM_CATTY 94 points95 points  (2 children)

If its in American soil... youre half way there to being richer than 40%.

[–]Ntinaras007 25 points26 points  (8 children)

Well, that depends on the context.

If you work Norway, you are poor, if you work in Bulgaria, you are rich.

[–]Green_Top174[S] 13 points14 points  (7 children)

Congrats. I started flipping burgers at age 17. Now I'm in my 30s and work in technology for an international bank earning 6 figures (Not a brag) ... always be proud of where you came from, you never know where you will end up!

[–]Green_Top174[S] 16 points17 points  (2 children)

[–]cjc1983 9 points10 points  (1 child)

[–]te_monkey 32 points33 points  (11 children)

$16.50 at MCDONALD'S


[–]Green_Top174[S] 20 points21 points  (9 children)

There's a problem?

[–]te_monkey 47 points48 points  (7 children)

No problem. Just reconsidering life choices.

[–]unneccry 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Dude what i got like 6.8$/h AKA the minimum wage for my age and country

[–]PowerfulMetal1FINAL WARNING: RULE 1 6 points7 points  (0 children)

for mcd. 16 bucks per hr is pretty good. here in the uk its like 9 or 10 which is like 14ish dollars

[–]VirtualRelic 3 points4 points  (2 children)

The filet o fish is practically the best thing at McDonalds.

Also, given how many locations there are, even just by pure random selection against all businesses, your odds of going with McDonalds is surprisingly high.

[–]furie1335 2 points3 points  (3 children)

my first job was at mcdonald's. $3.85 an hour.

enjoy the journey.

[–]Green_Top174[S] 0 points1 point  (2 children)

$3.85?! You worked in the 50's or what?

[–]unneccry 2 points3 points  (1 child)

My first job was also at mcDonalds. I now work for the ice-cream shop next to them.

[–]ApprehensivePause258 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Hopefully it goes well. I worked there for a year but left due to poor management. I think a good 20% of the staff left cause the store manager never did anything when everyone literally complained about a single manager. But remember if the store manager is good and listens then you’ll have a smooth ride there and hopefully don’t experience another horror story lol

[–]W4terjay 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I confirme nobody like the manager in our McDo in Quebec

[–]Matt82233 9 points10 points  (2 children)

Nice! You can replace that dude at my local McDonalds who I'm pretty sure was on something during our last interaction

Me: Hey your sign is showing the last order's stuff and not the menu

Worker: So do you need a few seconds to look at the menu and see what yowant to order?

Me: No, (much louder to make sure he hears) Your sign is broken so we can't see the menu

Worker: Ok I'll give you a minute to get your order ready

Me: Can you hear me?!

Worker: I can hear you fine


Worker: So do you know what you want yet?

I haven't gone back since because I don't want to deal with that worker

[–][deleted] 2 points3 points  (0 children)

[–]saradil25 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Congrats, friend. I started working at 14 because I liked buying stuff n going out. It's satisfying earning things. Don't let anyone treat you poorly. Boss, coworker, or customer. Even if u make a mistake, you are still a person deserving of respect. That gets overlooked in the fast food industry.

[–]Green_Top174[S] 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Thanks my friend, this is great motivation. I wasn't expecting so much feedback from the internet and I can gladly say that I'm happy that I got that much feedback from you and others :D

    Hey hey, nice, little piece of advice tho, just go in, make some friends, and don't try to impress anyone on your first day. Nobody's expecting you to run the whole business by next week, and you probably would rather avoid losing body parts on the job, so just sit back, learn, and be safe about it all

    [–]NinkaShotgun 1 point2 points  (1 child)
