When this chamber director contacted McDonald’s Public Relations team for information to include in this post about Mountain View, Missouri McDonald’s as our chamber spotlight member, they asked if they could use a story about their manager. Having had this young man in class for 4 years and in FBLA as the chapter president when I was a business teacher, and because of my experiences with him, I could not have been more delighted with their idea! I believe every good thing that is ever said about him and I am never surprised with his accomplishments.
An all-star resides in the Mountain View community and his name is Michael McBride. You can find him at your local McDonald’s leading a team of outstanding people since 2015. To some, working at McDonald’s might be just a paycheck but not to Michael. When he started as a high school crew member in 2009, he saw the possibilities within the four walls of McDonald’s to not only gain business and life skills but to truly grow as an individual.
“I really loved my job right from the beginning. I would always have an extra uniform in my car hoping they would call me in,” McBride said.
Michael has hit many milestones through his career at McDonald’s since he started in 2009. From Shift Manager to People Manager, he now runs his own restaurant under the title of General Manager.
“I am extremely proud of Michael. Michael is truly the embodiment of the American Spirit. He has developed into not only a great leader, and business man, but also a lovely human being. He truly cares for the people that work for him, and wants them to have the same opportunities,” Owner/Operator Andi Hilburn-Vaini said.
To help employees, such as Michael to reach their goals and succeed, McDonald’s created Archways to Opportunity, a comprehensive education strategy with programs that give people an opportunity to learn and reach their full potential. Michael has taken advantage of the Tuition Assistance program that Archway’s provides and is just one semester away from earning his Bachelor degree in Business.
When Michael is not working or attending classes to earn his degree, he is a devoted husband and foster parent to four children ranging from newborn to seven years old. He enjoys time with his family by going to the movies, swimming at the pool & simply just having family time at home.
“My wife and I are very fortunate for the flexibility that my job offers. This allows me to attend college and go to the many things fostering requires,” McBride said.
McDonald’s of Mountain View feels very fortunate to have Michael as a leader in their McFamily. To his team, and to all that know him – he is a true inspiration for his dedication to his career, people, family and community.
