  • You would have to let the manager know so that they can inform a crew trainer to teach you the ropes of coffee making. It would depend on whether you're a casual, part-time or full time.

  • You would have to prove you are good enough to get the promotion to McCafe then you will be trained from there, you would earn around $11 per hour but changes depending on weather you are part time or casual, You are able to work in McCafe at 15 you just need to be promoted.

  • Yes, you would be allowed to worker/barista at 15. However, you would need training in order to receive a barista certificate which allows you to create coffees during work hours for a customer.

  • Hi, From my experience i can say that you definitely would be able to work in cafe after maybe a year of working on front counter however there's no opportunity to become a qualified barista as such. the pay including casual loading would be roughly $10.50 an hour at your age.

  • Due to your age it'll affect your salary but it also comes down to what title you want whether it be casual part time or full time

  • Apply for the nearest maccas to you, if successful in your interview talk to the person giving the interview about becoming a barista and what courses are available for you to complete through mccafe. your earnings would be approximately $10 an hour im pretty sure, but again this can be asked at your interview once you have applied.

  • If you want to become a barista, you need to ask your manager for training. Depending on which one of the stores you work at, you'll probably get paid $8-12 per hour. Yes, you can be a barista at any age over 14.

  • A typical 15 year old earns about $10.80 an hour and to become a barista, said person must be trained in service areas like counter and drivethru before being trained in cafe

  • You'll have to work at the front or kitchen for about 6-9 months, then they'll start to train you on the cafe. From then on you'll get put on at the McCafe about 20% of the time. This is because McCafe orders peak at around 8-9am on weekdays, when people get a morning coffee before work, and you'll only be able to work that shift on school holidays.
    You would earn about $8 an hour as a part timer or $10 an hour as a casual.

  • You would have to work at Maccas for a certain amount of time - and practically beg your managers to get you training.You wouldn't make much - and probably wouldn't be allowed to be a mcafe worker until you are older.
