    I worked at McDonald's full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Benefits, medical is so inexpensive, bonus program is nice. Great training to prepare you to be successful

    Cons

    Sometimes the flavor of the month gets old. Not enough stability in the upper ranks due to turnover, promotions or transfers
    Must help under performing stores and transfer your people to those stores, problem is they keep on turning over people and you basically have to develop talent between 2 stores or more

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It's a great place to work. Sometimes the pressure for performance requires some people to cheat and not follow their personal values. With this it makes it hard on GM's who are honest. Some GMs are not good with their people and with this they have high turnover, other stores must keep on sending them talent. Turnover should be part of the bonus program. These managers who are turnover over people who are great are just going after short term profit but hurting long time potential.

    Crew Member Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Centerville, OH
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Centerville, OH
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks - interviewed at McDonald's in June 2013.

    Interview Details

    The only way to apply at the location I worked at was through an online application I filled out. I got a call within a few weeks asking to set up an interview. I had a first interview with one of the managers and he approved me for a follow up interview with a different manager. Both interviews were relatively laid back and asked mostly, are you good under pressure and can you deal with rude customers appropriately (which you better, because you deal with crap on a daily basis.)

Serving billions of hamburgers has put a shine on these arches. McDonald's is the world's #1 fast-food company by sales, with more than 32,500 restaurants serving burgers and fries in 117 countries.
