Neither is what you posted above necessarily true.
In my experience it (what I posted above) is true though! Of course, you may have had different experiences, I can accept that too.

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.
How is it worse?

Its much worse. If you work as a Maure you have to lift all those heavy stones and everything. Your backs are killing you. In Mcdonalds you just buy good pair of shoes and problem solved. Your legs wont hurt you. LOL

Not sure if "OMG" or "aww, diddums" is the right answer!

The RAV would have a field day with you two if you were ever unfortunately to need a job.

What are you talking about? A brick is between 3kg to 8kg, which is the weight of a small child a stay at home mother has to pick up every 5 minutes. They use machinery to lift most of the heavy materials. They get to go through training to learn how to properly lift, place and work with bricks and other materials. They have heavily regulated working hours, unions, and earn more than most architects and drafters designing the building. They get to work outside, which means a healthy dose of vitamin D, which most IT people need to compensate somehow...

On the other hand, workers on the serving industry need to stand for hours (which is very different from moving around a construction site), have to deal with rude costumers and a heavy dose of attitude from people who think that working in the serving industry is somehow demeaning.

Every job has its perks and its faults.

Re: Working in Mcdonalds

I used to work in MD kitchen when I was 16. now 15 years later I am still in the industry.....NEVER have I ever seen such a clean and sterile work environment and are things treated with such care. Granted their product is not the highest of quality and sometime questionable; but you cant say anything about their workenvironment . I still eat there 2-3x a month or so.

And you wear their clothes so....just wash em.....but the smell does follow you home (fryer) and is unnoticable to yourself but very much so to others...

Re: Working in Mcdonalds

My brother worked in a factory plucking chickens; trust me, for sheer physical effort, smell, darkness, crap pay and overbearing unpleasantness none of these other mentioned jobs come even close.

Likewise.

And even after four years of working there and eating it daily, I never got addicted to it, I probably go a couple times a year at most, and probably less.

I worked (briefly) on a pig farm.

And you think the smell of french fries follows you home...?!

What a preposterous statement! How is it that you ate it daily then if you weren't addicted?! Knowing at the same time that it was wholly unhealthy what you were doing?!

I worked with silage in a lab for a while (trying to find a superabsorbent so it could be used as cow food). I always had a seat to myself on the bus,

Re: Working in Mcdonalds

Why are people so snobby about Mc D - when we are driving back and forth to the UK we always stop at Mc D - the staff are pleasant - the toilets clean - reasonable prices and you can get a nice salad and something healthy if you require.
I have even indulged in an ice cream cone there when the weather is hot and actually did that in Geneva last week!

Interesting though - I have not stepped in to a McD in the UK for probably 20 years!!

Yes, of course if you eat fries & burgers daily it is unhealthy but the odd time is not a problem.
