McDonald's Talk of LJ
I don't know if anyone else has heard of or seen stationM.com, it's a North American crew portal/blog of some sort. I've just dipped into it and figured I'd act as a stationM.com Ambassador and spread the word a bit.
Go to the website stationM.com, you'll need your national store number to create a log-in and access it. You can get this from any manager - it's 5-number string in the middle of their ISP password, if they don't know.
Also, don't forget to hit up my own blog at http://mcdonalds-career.blogspot.com/

I read about this site a while back and visited, but was not impressed. It's ran by corporate, and everything is censored and scripted. I feel their goal is to get feedback from crew members while simultaneously marketing new products, policies, and procedures. Any response must be cleared by a site moderator, and is linked to your name and store number. I mean, who is running this website, McDonald's of China?
Personally, I feel a forum model would be better than a blog. Let the crew choose the subjects, drop the complete censorship, but make use of moderators. Make it a real resource for crew, a place where they can really hang out.
McDonald's is putting $$$ into this, and this month all US stores will be getting packets with details and directions on how to access the site. I feel that this will be a wasted effort. Sorry, but I'm against corporate gimmicks.
Hm. Either way, I asked my store manager about it, and they didnt know shit.
All she told me was "Dont say anything bad about our store."
Maybe I'll just keep my blog here and let that be enough. Plus, I'm all about being honest and bitching when shit goes wrong.
