How should I ask for a raise at McDonalds? And how much?
I used to work at McDonald's. I was one of the best cooks there too. I worked there for a little over 2 years. One day, I got another job and it paid better. The manager there was a bit distraught about the prospect of losing his best cook when I gave him notice that I would be leaving for a new job. He immediately asked me how much I was going to be making. I can tell from his reaction that he was considering matching it if I stayed. Whether this is an option for you, only you can determine. How good of a worker are you? What is his demeanor? What is he like? I assure you, that the owner of your McDonald's is a millionaire, and this non-sense of how he can't pay you over $8.00/hr is just a greed factor. The guy certainly can pay over $8.00. All he has to do is sell that third cadillac and maybe his second summer home in the Bahamas. If you just go up to him and say, "uh.. mr. manager sir, can i uh have a raise and stuff?" You are probably not going to get it, and if you do, it will not be as much as you could get as a hard worker possibly moving on. As for the amount you should ask him for... McDonald's raises are very skimpy according to their own policies that I had read once. I have seen raises for $0.05, $0.10, and $0.15. I've never seen nor heard of $1.00 or so. I'd probably try for $0.25 or $0.35. btw... I'd just get another job if I were you. Your experience at McDonald's gives you experience in sales and customer service, it is time to focus on that.
