21 Jul SERVICE WITH A SMILE – SHANE & PAUL’S MILESTONE CELEBRATION
McDonald’s Gladstone Kin Kora is celebrating the milestones of two community legends and employees this month – Shane Banks and Paul Rahme.
Shane Banks has worked at McDonald’s Gladstone Kin Kora for the last twenty years. He began his career at the restaurant when he was twenty-two years old. Shane works at the front counter in a hospitality role, ensuring his customers have the best possible dining experience. Shane has seen many changes in the business over the years, but his strong work ethic and unflappable personality have remained the same. Shane said he is excited to celebrate this special employment milestone. “I’m excited to celebrate twenty years working at McDonald’s,” he said. “I’ve been with the team for almost half my life, so the crew here certainly feel like another family.”
Another staff member is also celebrating his tenth year of employment. Paul Rahme first began working at McDonald’s Gladstone Kin Kora when he was sixteen years old. Paul, who has Down Syndrome, works in the dining room and is known by his customers for his great sense of humour. He even has individualised handshakes – a different one for each of his regulars.
Restaurant Owner of McDonald’s Gladstone Region Tony Ward thanked both Shane and Paul on behalf of the whole McDonald’s Gladstone Kin Kora Team. “I would like to thank Shane and Paul for their hard work and dedication,” Tony said. “We’re grateful for our longstanding relationship with Paul and Shane, both of whom have been integral members of our Macca’s family for many years and are well-loved by our customers and crew alike.”
