Celebrating 20 Years Employed at McDonald's

Karen Holmes has been a steadfast figure at McDonald's restaurant in Wakefield for 20 years. In 1993, Karen became employed at McDonald's cleaning the lobby. Since then, her job has become much more than a paycheck to her. Karen has developed great relationships with many coworkers, supervisors and customers over the years. There are many customers who look forward to seeing Karen each day she is working and really look out for her.
Karen has seen many coworkers come and go; the establishment itself go through a major transformation and has had a few different supervisors since 1993. Through each change, Karen continues to work hard and smile, never missing a table or the opportunity to sweep over someone's feet! Karen really enjoys her work. She is excited with anticipation each morning before she leaves for work, signing “work” and “McDonald's” to every staff member of her group home.
Karen's job has afforded her the opportunity to go on many vacations over the years, including a cruise to Mexico. Karen's job has also provided her the ability to have her nails done often, visit amusement parks, go to concerts and frequent her favorite restaurant, the Olive Garden. Most of all, Karen's job allows her to be part of her community, gives her the opportunity to form relationships with many people and provides her with a real sense of accomplishment and purpose.
Congratulations, Karen, on a great accomplishment, 20 years!
