Current Employee - Certified Shift Manager in Peoria, AZ

I have been working at McDonald's full-time (less than a year)

Pros

Teaches usefull every day skills, i.e. multi-tasking.
Teaches you how to work quickly and accurately under pressure

Cons

You cannot win, at McDonalds, unless your store is phenomenal as a whole. No matter how successful, you, as an individual may be, someone will always be able to make your success irrelevant, whether they hand food out wrong or simply suck at their job.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Schedule more people, always, labor goals are too low.

    I worked at McDonald's part-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Very systematic, which could be a con if you prefer spontaneity. As a result of this, tasks become very repetitive and should be done a certain way. The work itself is very easy and usually requires no physical or mental exertion.

    Cons

    It's up to the employee to enjoy work. If one slips into a bad attitude, negative habits may form and cause each work day to drag on and on. This is seen in many employees and can wear off on you if you let it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Care less about doing everything the way it should be done according to the corporation and instead be more practical with employees.
