    Pros

    Great place to work friendly environment. Pay is what is expected and hours are negotiable. Managers are friendly and caring to the employees.

    Cons

    Absolutely no benefits, whetted full time or not they're pointless and cover nothing. Pay is nothing that can support a family and increases are rare.

    Lots of work to do on a daily basis and good manager who looks out for the employees as much as possible.

    Sometimes big corporations can lose the personal touch, but I haven't found that to be too much of a problem.

    Personal connections are key.

    I have been working at McDonald's

    Pros

    None. Worked like a slave. Random schedules.

    Cons

    Everything. They won't give you your free meal sometimes. And even after a 12 hour shift, they'll supervise you while you eat it.
