McDonalds work experience placement.

McDonald’s partnership - NZ Education Gazette

The school has developed a partnership with a local McDonald’s branch where, for four days each week, two boys have the opportunity to completely manage one of the coffee machines, serving both the restaurant and drive-through customers.

They do induction and some training, but because of the experience they have here at school, they’re able to confidently manage the barista machine there at McDonald’s.”

The boys are then on a five-week placement and we’re finding that they’re mostly getting job offers before the five weeks are up.”
