Welcome to the team! We are so excited to work with you and to be your first job. We want to be a great employer and create a safe workplace for you.

  • We will provide you with a uniform that is designated for 15-year-old employees which consists of a red McDonald’s t-shirt, hat, and name tag. Please wear each of these on every shift you work. This makes you easily identifiable to management.

I have read and understand the C&R Management 15-year-old Employment Guidelines Policy. I understand that this policy must be followed while I am under the age of 16. I will talk to the shift manager, general manager, or area supervisor if these policies are not being followed. I will update the general manager 2 weeks before my 16th birthday so I can be issued another uniform and update my availability and review job duty changes for 16- and 17-year-old employees. I understand that these policies are to keep me safe at work and that if I do not follow these policies, it will result in employment action including up to termination.
