    I worked at McDonald's full-time (more than 3 years)


    Culture promotes teamwork, a genuine enthusiasm for the McDonald's brand helps shape all goals and decisions. Great coworkers. Strong leadership. Company car program at higher bands. Company-only restaurant onsite. Fair vacation policy.


    Somewhat rigid culture: khakis and button-downs, little flexibility to work from home, early hours, suburban location with no public transportation options, below market pay

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The corporate team should work in the restaurants more often to reinforce the frontline: the counter. Re-evaluate pay to attract and retain competitive talent. Support a more entrepreneurial environment for fresh thinking and tactics. Consider an urban office.

I was asked to come back for a second interview the next day with the store manager. The store manager canceled the next day and rescheduled for the next week. The second interview was a lot about my personal experiences. I was offered the position and gladly accepted.
