Another important detail is that before creating this series, the authors interviewed employees and learned the history of their journey in the company.

"With the series Everything Changes, we want to show that a job at McDonald's is more than "just" burgers and fries. We have a strong focus on developing our employees and annually train more than 1,100 employees on internal and external training and courses," comments Thomas Johansen, Head of Marketing Denmark, McDonald’s Denmark.

"With the series, we try to do away with the prejudices that unfortunately prevail about working at McDonald's. For some, the job is a good start to working life, while for others it is the start of a long career, and we want to show that," added Thomas.
