McDonald's Worker Shares Secret 'Points System' Staff Use In Liverpool Restaurant

McDonald's 'points system' for staff meals was revealed by one of its Liverpool restaurants in a viral TikTok video posted on Sunday (7 February).

The video explains how McDonald's staff are entitled to one free meal per shift, with each meal being limited to four points.

However, each point is worth a lot more than you might expect.

Among the items worth one point are the Breakfast McMuffin, Chicken McNuggets, Double Cheeseburger and Big Mac.

Other food items available in the system include the Big Tasty, Chicken Legend, Frappe, Chicken Selects, and wraps, which all have a value of two points.

Fries, fruit, and drinks such as coffee and sodas are all valued at one point.

The video posted to the Walton Road McDonald's TikTok channel is part of a recruitment campaign, with 'McBenefits' tagged in the caption.

The final shot ends with the words: "Take your seat and free meal as a Walton Road employee.

"HIRING NOW."

Views of the video have risen to almost 150,000 over the past three days, so the campaign certainly looks to be a success.

The available food and drinks appear to be displayed in the restaurant's kitchen on a laminated piece of paper showing how staff can create their meal.

One comment by user alfiethornzton03 suggests not all McDonald's stores offer this system.

He said: "My store doesn't use the point system.

This may be due to McDonald's franchise system, which means each restaurant is independent in some respects and operates under different processes.

It appears McDonald's employees in the US don't experience the same 'McBenefits' according to one comment.

One user said: "In California it's just 30 percent off and you still pay."

The video isn't Walton Road McDonald's first taste of TikTok fame, with one of its previous videos about the creation of a Big Tasty reaching over 180,000 views on the platform.

Other videos explain food hacks and behind-the-scenes footage on how the store became the supposed 'quickest' UK McDonald's drive-thru.
