Kuala Lumpur, 13 October 2018,
How many times have your parents told you while you were growing up: “If you don’t study hard enough, you should just work at McDonald’s for the rest of your life.”
People have a negative perception about those who work in these establishments, behind the counter serving you burgers, fries and ice-cream.
McDonald’s Malaysia director of operations Mohd Fairul Maan, 43, admits being judged or overhearing negative comments during his earlier days of working with the fast food giant in 1994.
“You cannot run away from the perception that working at McD’s means you are going nowhere in your career.
“But working here has been the best thing that has ever happened to me.”
Throughout his career, Fairul has won accolades, the latest being the President’s Award, one handed to McDonald’s top one per cent employees worldwide.
It is no easy feat as the brand has some 300,000 employees — 100 countries and 36,000 restaurants, serving 70 million customers daily.
