Eric, Crew Trainer for McDonald’s
Job: Crew Trainer – McDonald’s
Time as a W2W rider: 4 months
Prior to working for McDonald’s I did a number of odd jobs such as parcel delivery but wanted to be able to get a job with more regular hours and opportunities for promotion so I started working at McDonald’s.
"Being on the scheme has meant that I have been promoted"
I heard about Wheels 2 Work through one of my Shift Managers at McDonald’s. He had been on a Wheels 2 Work scooter for a long time and recommended that I also join the scheme. Being on the scheme has meant that I have been promoted to be an Area Crew Trainer. The job involves travelling between McDonald’s outlets in the area and training up new members of staff in their various roles. Without Wheels 2 Work, and a completely flexible means of getting around I wouldn’t have been able to do the job.
Before joining Wheels 2 Work I had had some experience riding scooters and bikes so I wasn’t worried about learning to ride the scooters. They are really easy to ride and don’t take long to get used to. I am on a 125cc because of the distances that I have to travel in my job and it is really nippy.
"You get some great training and support from Wheels 2 Work HQ."
If you are thinking about joining the scheme, just go for it! It’s affordable and the bikes are easy to ride. You get some great training and support from Wheels 2 work HQ. I have told loads of people about the scheme and a number of them have already joined.
