Billionaire Uncovers Past in VIRAL Photo!
Jeff Bezos, Amazon’s founder, had his first job at the age of 16 when he worked at the fast food chain McDonalds. On Sunday he tweeted a picture of him enjoying a McDonald’s burger.
His tweet simply read “My first job. And still the same great burger. Happy Sunday!”
Reportedly Bezos first job was not even working as a cashier. Instead, he was in the back flipping burgers in 1980.
In an interview with Cody Teets, whose book “Golden Opportunity: Remarkable Careers that Began at McDonald’s” featured Bezos, was the one to secure a few more comments from Bezos regarding this first experience.
Bezos reportedly said that while he was a grill man, he could see that the hardest thing in this job was making sure everything was in place during rush hour. This could help them keep up with demand and pace the orders properly. Bezos recalled that his manager was excellent, despite him having to handle so many teenagers.
Bezos also said that while working in the kitchen he would always be looking through the workflow and try to come up with solutions to help further improve it.
While Bezos and his burger made the news, he more recently came under fire for looking to dismantle a historic bridge in Rotterdam so that his 417-foot megayacht could leave the construction shipyard. The bridge, De Hef, has been in place for almost 100 years, and while it is no longer used, it has become one of the big monuments of the city.
The yacht, known as Y721 cost about $500 million and was taken out of the shipyard before being completed. The bridge did not get dismantled.
