Is the training for a McCafé barista and a general crew member the same?

12 answers

  • No, its easier to train baristas. Baristas focus on milk, coffee grind, temperature, froth, etc.

    Crew members are expected to know location of items on the register, how to greet, how to handle customers, making soft drinks, desserts, fries, everything.

  • Yes, the only difference being, that a barista now knows how to work in the café part of the restaurant.

  • No it’s not the same training

  • No, it is not, as McCafe has different requirements, compared to general crew, as McCafe has coffee’s, different food, etc.

  • The way that they are trained is the same. they are trained by a crew trainer who helps and guides the trainee

  • Yes they are very similar but it comes with different things.

  • I'd say not, to be trained as a Mcdonalds barista you need to be a hard worker and quick learner, in my opinion not everyone is trained at a barista, however everyone is trained as a general crew member.

  • No, you up train to be a barista

  • No, McCafe Barista focuses on making all different types of coffee/hot and cold drinks correctly.
    General crew member training focuses on customer service at the front counter

  • Yes all training is the same for each station
