    Stick it out as long as you can which will give you time to find a better job.

    Remember though, ccw is banned in most work places by company policy. It's the risk we take for our own personal security.

    BTW, my days with McDonald's are over with after the way they treated the young employee with the strip search issue.

    Good luck!
    I'd keep an eye on what other jobs might be available. Although you still remain employed, it doesn't mean you will be next week. There is a constant turnover of employees for a reason...you've been marked, so it's just a matter of time. If they didn't fire you on the spot for violating policy, they will find some other reason to dump you.

    +1 Biloxi--I would rather give two week notice than show up to work only to find out I've been fired for some innocuous B.S. performance issue. Walk away, be friendly, enjoy employment elsewhere, and use your Smartcarry.

    My 2 cents on Smartcarry--you aren't going to out-draw a drawn gun regardless of holster...and it's better to have one on you than wishing you had it while it's sitting out in your car.

    Thanks everyone for the replies. I'm in a real bind here, because if I was to quit now, I would have a difficult time finding other employment. This is my only way of making money to support my hobbies and college, but I do believe no low paying job, that deals with the public is worth my life. I've thought about just turning in my uniforms and calling it quits there, but that would look bad on reference checks. I really want to quit working there, but my need for money has me sort of stuck. I do carry a Gerber Fast Draw on me at all times, so it's better than nothing, I just need to stay aware of what's going on around me, which is sometimes hard to do when I'm counting money, or making a product, because I've had managers sneak up on me many times.

    I work a part time job with the same policy you deal with. I carry a P3AT in a smartcarry. Not easy to get to but better than nothing.

    I don't think we are saying you should just quit. I think we are saying you should start looking for a new job.

    This might not be for you but have you considered reserve military service? It seems to me this would satisfy a lot of your needs (extra money, drug free [mostly], safer environment [not dealing with the public]). Carry will be an even more definite no-no, but for for me at least it's worth it.

    Nevermind, just scrolled back and looked at your info. If you do get fired or decide to find employment elsewhere, I would feel free to make a call to not only the person who owns that particular McDonalds but also to their corporate office. They should be notified if your basic rights are being violated while illegal activity is being left unchecked.

    the way I look at it is you can either abide by the rules or if you dont then leave. I dont think its a very good idea to get in the habit of only obeying the rules we like and disobeying the rules we dont like . just my thoughts

    With all the talk about Smart Carry, I was thinking about getting one; until someone mentioned that going to the john to whiz could be a problem. At my age the old prostate sometimes doesn't give me a lot of time!

    search "Anna Svidersky". Long story short - She was a teenager working at Mac's and killed as she was waiting for a ride home. Base decision on your future and goals. Will this job make or break your future? Can't tell you what choice to make but is this a career choice or just using time as life happens?

    Based on the strip search lawsuit that made the headlines last week, it's pretty obvious Mickey D's and their franchisees doesn't give a rat's rear end about employee rights.

    You can bet some corporate lawyer would turn this around to say, "XXXX violated company policy by bringing a dangerous weapon to work blah, blah, blah."

    Don't try to fight this other than by moving on. Also remember that the risk of a phone call from a potential employer to your current employer would mean getting some big-mouthed stoner with the title of manager giving out more info than should be allowed.
    Under most state and federal regs it's prohibited to provide more than a verification of employent and employment dates. But can you expect a Jeff Spicoli-type character* to follow the law, much less even know it?

    Life, like concealed carry, requires stealth.
