McDonald's really did put a smile on my face as an employee.

Crew Member (Current Employee)
Rockford, IL

I have been working at McDonald's part-time for more than 5 years

ProsThe restaurant where I work has always been very flexible about my schedule as far as school goes. They understand my priorities and have always helped me as much as they can. I learned a lot about each position, and they offered me a crew trainer position that I turned down because I went away to college. I appreciated their dedication to letting me work there, even though I started as a 15-year-old.

ConsThey were always so concerned about employees working overtime. If someone was close to working 40 hours that week, they would send you home early, even if the restaurant was busy. I felt as though they could have also given us time-and-a-half like many places do when working on holidays.

Advice to Senior ManagementOverall, I'd say to just really think about the holidays. The employees working on holidays in restaurants often have families they would like to spend time with, but we were often not allowed to request days off during the holiday season. Having an extra stipend of time-and-a-half (for instance, but not necessarily that) could help the morale of employees having to work those shifts.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
