PostSubject: Macca's Rage!   2010-05-12, 05:28

So last night, I was working late on an install job (the company I work for sub-contracts for Checkpoint - also known as the alarm gates at coles/woolies), and we didn't finish till 2 this morning...

anywho... we went out for foods and the only thing "open" nearby was maccas...

it's a 24 hour drive thru so we thought we would walk it (5 of us)

the order terminal is done by a sensor in the ground which reacts to a car...
so i had to walk back the the carpark, get my ute, drive it around, park it on the spot...

terminal comes straight to life...
"what can i get you tonight?"

I wasn't actually too hungry, and the other guys were all just standing around waiting to order, so i turned the car off, and hopped out...

my boss walks over to the thing and orders his food...

"sorry you have to be in a car to order..."

This is a big UP YOURS to all macdonalds stores...
Not only is your food Mc'Shit, your service is not with a smile, and is completely rediculous...
Never am I going to try and eat at mc'crappers again...

1 Its a magnetic sensor that detects your car
B: Got any idea the disruption and damage walk in customers do, not to mention the threat to employee safety and their own safety. Ive seen people bowled over in drive thru attempting to walk through, seen someone taken to hospital in an ambulance
3 You try smiling after spending a nyt of people treating you like your lower than somthing I pigs trodden in

Number of customers Ive nearly punched out in overnyt drive thru is staggering. Were underpaid, treated like shit every which way we turn, and unless you've worked the job, you cant understand how bad it is.

Everyone should have to work fast food in their lives, as it would really change their opinions, god knows with some insight we might get treated well enough to smile and be nice to customers.

anti-rant over

1, B, 3? Learn to count much? Smile

I have no problems with it being a drive thru only, but you have to be in your car to order? Wtf is with that shit?

Also, it was 2 in the morning, not another car to be seen in sight, we were the only people for ages... No chance of us being hurt/bowled over etc...

Haha...

830-5 are my normal hours...

But being in IT you have to be flexible...
Some days we work till 2 in the morning... like last night...
Other day I work will 3 in the afternoon then go home cos there's no work...

It wouldn't be so bad if the job wasn't such a big fuckup...

She is?
How nice Smile
Our company dynamics are vastly different then...

Can I ask why you are studying DA? Seeing as most problems in IT can be solved with a little lateral thinking and some google work...
The only way you get experience is by getting out there in the big wide world and applying yourself... You don't need to have a piece of paper which says you spent 3/4 years in some institution learning about how it all works... Because to be quite honest, all the shit they teach you at Uni means diddly squat out in the real world...

We had a Uni Graduate employed here a few months ago, unfortunately he had to leave to work in rural to extend his visa but that's another story. He admitted that working with us is completely different to what they teach. They don't teach you how to interact with clients. What to do when things don't happen the way they should. They don't teach you practical stuff...

and which is the way im trying to teach my students!

i agree that a degree can only teach you so much, its all good knowing about it but unless you can actually apply these techniques and use some imitative then your just going to start over once in industry

Electron - as valuable as experience is, a lot of companies still require a tertiary qualification and at least 1-2 years experience if you're applying for a junior or grad position. The stuff they teach at uni lays the groundwork for what is to come in your later professional life - they can't teach you everything in a matter of 3 years. This is where the industry experience comes in handy.

I totally agree with you that they don't teach the soft skills required by IT professionals and I would like to see that introduced into the system. We have many brilliant developers here who can't keep a decent conversation going because of a lack of social skills but they can produce mean-as & awesome programs/code.

Electron - I am in IT. I am a software developer hence the "c0d3r" name Smile

You need qualification to get the job to get the experience to get the ability to apply lateral thinking to problems that your learning gave you the tools to solve

BK = Hungry Jacks. The Name Burger King was taken in aus, coz they convicts and all they stole the name from the americans, dah, so they adopted the name hungry jacks. And I dont actually eat Mc Ds food, I eat Mc Cafe bacause its like 100x better and the girls are way hotter. BK is good, KFC is greasy, cooking food is bestest. And we still serve people after hours, we refitted our front door so we can take walk in orders there. Alot of resturants have banned it outright due to damage. For example, we have had menu boards kicked in, drive thru window punched out, I've been swung at through the security window (I grabbed his arm and introduced his forehead to the metal edging of the window). Its a matter of a few ruining it for the rest, but rules are rules, and Mc D's are sticklers for rules
