The initial couple of days can be tough as you are in training and it can make people rethink about working here, but I would have to say persevere, as there are rewards at the end of the tunnel.

McDonald's put their people first and never leave them doing the same job all the time. To work in McDonald's you requires patience, a good personality with a willingness to learn something new everyday.

Showing an interest in other peoples interests would help as you have to work as a team so interpersonal skills are ESSENTIAL!!

Social?
Social 
The Social person's interests focus on some aspect of those people in their environment. In all cases the social person enjoys the personal contact of other people in preference to the impersonal dealings with things, data and ideas found in other groups.

Many will seek out positions where there is direct contact with the public in some advisory role, whether a receptionist or a counsellor. Social people are motivated by an interest in different types of people, and like diversity in their work environments. Many are drawn towards careers in the caring professions and social welfare area, whilst others prefer teaching and other 'informing' roles.

The company, which currently has stores in Limerick, Longford, Dublin, Wicklow and Cork, is planning to open two new shops over the coming months, bringing its total number of outlets in Ireland to 11.

Darren Spoonley, Maxi Zoo's head of sales in Ireland, said the new jobs will be located across the country.

"Whilst the new stores will be located in Maynooth and Dublin, a variety of positions across all levels are available nationwide," he said.

The company is still hoping to open further shops in the future, Mr Spoonley added.

"Due to continued market demand we are always on the look out for new store locations," he noted.

The news comes as the Sunday Business Post reported that US retailer Abercrombie & Fitch will create up to 300 jobs in Dublin when it opens a new store in the capital this year.
