HR Strange But True!
February 18, 2003

We all know that HR is never boring, but sometimes it can get downright strange...

A happier story involving meat

At 79, Clare Kimmerle is not even the oldest employee of the McDonald's restaurant in Southampton, Penn. A co-worker is 80. And Mike Anton, owner of the franchise, says senior citizens are among his most reliable employees.

But Kimmerle is still unusual, especially since in her 32 years and 10 months of employment at McDonald's, she never flipped a burger. Nor eaten a Big Mac. (She regards them as too filling.) Likewise, she had never worked the drive-through or worn a headset. ("It would give me a headache," she says.)

Rather, she's happy to spend the first part of her shift filling breakfast orders at the front counter, then shift over to making fries - her forte.

Her reason for staying on the job so long? "I don't want to stay home and die," she says. "That's what happens. I like to work. I like to see people."
