    I worked at McDonald's

    Pros

    Food discounts. If you're a teenage, you make enough to go to the movies and buy gas.

    Cons

    Everything there is to hate about a company is what McDonalds is all about.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay your workers a living wage. Your top people make millions upon millions, but your workers can barely afford to feed their families.

    Pros

    The only good thing about this job is that you are given free food when scheduled to work.

    Cons

    The food itself is horrible. Most employees don't care to treat the food with care, or like actual food. Customers are extremely rude, and managers reward and promote their friends, not hard workers. They don't recognize hard work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please be professional and fair. I know its A LOT to ask from you and you wont listen, but hey, I tried.
