Careers rarely develop the way we plan them. Our career path often takes many twists and turns, with particular events, choices and people influencing our direction.
We asked Lisa Berry from McDonald's to give some advice for people considering this job:
My advice would be it is definitely a job where if you work hard and maintain your ambition you can have a satisfying career.
I think the biggest misconception is that McDonald's is only a job and stop gap to something else.
You will need patience, drive and commitment and be able to adapt to change. The skills you will learn with this job will be lifelong skills.
