McDonald’s takes pride in being the best first job employer and a great place to work at. Every year, hundreds of new, young employees join the workforce. In fact, everything, from our policies to training and the work culture, has been developed keeping in mind the aspirations of the young and the restless. We are all about providing a great start, a platform that gives way to an exciting career path.
So what makes McDonald’s India (West & South) a great place to work for these youngsters? Here are a few reasons why our employees are lovin it.
Today’s generation is anything but boring, and their enthusiasm and passion are perceptible to everyone. For them, it is always more than a job. At McDonald’s, we understand this and offer a workplace where they can do multiple things to bond with their colleagues and have a great time. Besides the rewards and recognition events, we have an enthusiasm calendar for every year in which our employees celebrate festivals and global events in fun-filled ways.
What helps McDonald’s employees stay has a lot to do with the fact that they can move their shift around. This gives them flexibility to accommodate their other commitments like education, volunteer work and household responsibilities in their day to day lives.
At McDonald’s, we offer outstanding growth opportunities. We bring in several training sessions and workshops to make sure that employees who aspire to build their career at McDonald’s are ready with the necessary tools to do so. We have an online learning portal which can be accessed by employees at all times. Every restaurant has a Crew Room where employees can participate in these online learning programs during their spare time. Also, seniors and mentors play a very important role. McDonald’s India (West & South) takes pride in nurturing a work culture where seniors guide new team members to not just adapt to a new workplace but also hone their skills to grow in the company.
When an employee does something nice, something that delighted a customer, it never goes unnoticed at McDonald’s. We make sure the person or team get their due appreciation so that the motivation rubs off on everyone at the store or even at other stores.
Equal opportunity for women
25% of our workforce in India are women. From our drive-thrus to boardrooms, women are working their way up with their hard work and consistent performance over time. To maintain the right work-life balance, women are provided with various options. For example, they can choose their shift, or work part-time if that is more feasible for them. We also take workplace safety very seriously to ensure our women employees feel comfortable in their job roles.
Training at McDonald’s is considered to be one of the best in the industry. We are talking about those sessions that every new employee has to go through before they hit the floor, and those that are conducted periodically to enhance their performance. These trainings focus on developing qualities like confidence and teamwork which help employees prepare for a happening career graph.
