After more than 24 years, Myrna Pagcu is now the longest serving crew member of the McDonald’s of Saipan’s main store in Chalan Lau Lau.

A native of Pampanga, Philippines, she made her way to Saipan 25 years ago, starting as a crew member. After many years of experience under her belt, she is now one of the restaurant’s crew trainers, spending her time training new crew members on the minutiae of giving service that pleases.

Her years with McDonald’s Saipan has also honed her talent for spotting potential leaders and she has made her fair share of recommendations for some who have made their way up the ranks.

Pagcu’s dedication to her job over the years has been so remarkable that she has not been absent nor late in her more than two decades of service.

One of the great things about working at McDonald’s that she loves is that respect is always shown to each other in the workplace, in working with her coworkers, both young or old. She praises her bosses for being kind and helpful to her throughout her career—which is one factor why she has worked there for as long as she has.

With over 24 years of service, Pagcu is content with her career in McDonald’s and looks forward to many more years of working at the restaurant until she’s ready to retire—whenever that may be.

She thanks God, her managers, her general manager, and her crew members for the many years of opportunity of working for McDonald’s.

McDonald’s of Guam and Saipan have served their communities for over 50 years in Guam and 30 years on Saipan and remains one of the island’s largest employers.
