Here’s something you don’t hear alot of these days, a man that’s worked for one company for 59 years.
Willie Calhoun has worked at McDonalds since he’s been 14-years-old which means at the age of 73 he started working for Micky D’s in 1957 when Dwight D. Eisenhower was President.
This super “loyal” employee has worked at several McDonald’s locations around metro Atlanta, he is a long-time employee of the restaurant on Peachtree Boulevard in Chamblee, a suburb right outside of Atlanta.
Mr. Willie, as customers have come to call him, has prepared food there for customers for over 20 years. He celebrated his 59th anniversary year of working with McDonald’s on Thursday (October 27) to celebrate Calhoun’s 73rd birthday, and to acknowledge his long career with the company. A cake was decorated with chocolate roses, and inscribed, “Willie, 50 years service.”
We don’t know what Willie makes an hour…but Willie must be content, right?
