          I called McDonald's Uniform twice and was told both times that the measurements they took were only for graduation. It didn't make sense the first time I called but was told the same thing my second call. Neither person had a clue but onenkf them said they would call me back with more information. The guy that called back said there is a lady that works the front desk knows what we need to wear the first day. None of it made any sense but I had to digress and decided to go up ther tomorrow and see what they had to offer.

            So everyone wears the same thing day one? The people at the uniform store said they have stuff we can purchase but it is diferent than what we tried on during our fitting.

            • You were fitted for class A uniforms and Class C with C being the daily uniform. It?s on you to purchase the uniforms you?ll be wearing in the academy. You?re issued the others just prior to graduations. Make sure you also wear a belt. Either McDonalds or Uniform Gear know our uniforms and can help get you set up prior to the 18th. Don?t be that person showing up in the wrong uniform or missing something. Good luck to all of you!

                • Definitely not trying to be that guy

                  so I?m clear, that is a navy blue buttoned down shirt with a collar....correct and not just a navy blue t shirt?

                  Comment


                  • Collared shirt, correct. I wouldn?t recommend showing up in a t shirt. Elbeco Paragon Plus is the exact shirt we?re issued.

                        I was going to get both just in case since we're moving into fall, but knowing Philadelphia weather it might not get cold until November.

                          • Played it safe and went to McDonald?s Uniform to get short sleeve navy shirt and navy pants.
                            $100 +

                            Dickies is the wrong color blue

                                That's a lot. More than La County had.
