    I have been working at McDonald's part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I make good money for low level job, free food on days that I work. Buy 1 meal get 1 meal free on days that I don't work. Gold Card benefits save me a lot of money. Flexible hours make balancing a High School life and work very easy

    Cons

    Hard work, many managers need to have more passion for the job itself rather than just during peak periods or when they are being evaluated.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay more attention to what is actually happening inside the restaurants rather than just the numbers, make sure that people managers are hiring the right people for the job and keep them happy. A happy management and crew makes for a good running restaurant.
