McDonalds serves 63m people per year from 36k restaurants. That's around 1,750 people per restaurant per day - and lets say that 30% of that is from drive-thru or takeaway - leaving around 1225 per day.

1225 over 16 hours = 77 per hour. With an average service time of 3 minutes.

The McDonalds at the London Olympics was 10* the size of the average UK restaurant (Seating 1500 people) - taking that down you get 150, lets halve that.

Or in other words - every person who buys to consume on premises will stay an hour based on your "always packed" comment.
I don't understand the point of your post.

Re: Working in Mcdonalds

Assuming Frank Sinatra isn't a troll, working at McDonald's is still a job and not an easy one at that. I have respect for McDonald workers because they have to be quick and work with the public.

And here, they tend to speak at least three languages.

But nobody should have to do such a job.

There are worse jobs. Sometimes these jobs can be used as stepping stones towards a better job. It's also a place to gain experience and get a good job reference.

I guess there's a difference between doing it as a kid or a student to make some extra cash, and it becoming your life career.

Pay and conditions are poor. Mobbing is rife. The disgusting smell (which follows you home) from working there is impossible to get rid of even after long showers, open windows and use of air fresheners. All in all a depressing and very unhealthy lifestyle choice. There are other opportunities out there. Of course there are worse jobs. That though in itself doesn't mean to say anyone has to take a job at McDonald's.

You could say pretty much the same thing working in any restaurant.
Talking of the smell, my brother used to come home from work stinking of chip oil from the local chippy; I used to get home from work stinking of recycled acetone from working in the local chemical factory.

What complete stuck up rubbish!

How can there be a problem with working in a restaurant?

MacDonalds isn't any different from most of the other places selling food on the high streets, apart from the massive chip on the shoulder some people have.

Nobody should have to clean other peoples toilets, but that the world we live in. I would rather have my child work at McDonalds than many other places.

Only a fool would argue with that line of reasoning.

Totally; I can't stand this holier-than-thou attitude some people have. Typical first world problem. Some people need the work and the pay isn't that bad.

Thank you very much. I dont know why you people think that im some person who was trolling here before. I came on this forum one month ago. Im just asking questions. But people have to work so that they can live normal. I think its more worse to work on Baustelle then in Mcdonalds.
