    I worked at McDonald's full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    its a tight group of people who are there to help. It provides a good work ethic for young employees. It also provides valuable work experience when progressing career.

    Cons

    the pay can be low at times. Also, the customers are often rude and degrading. It's a beginner job, not a career move.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay employees more. It's difficult to work full time and still be able to support yourself, much less if you have children. If you pay more your employees will do more

    I worked at McDonald's part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Everything has a very clear system which is nice so it's easy to pick things up and jump right in. They do a great job training and uniform is provided!

    Cons

    Menu changed way too much and POS system was rapidly changing. Work was not always distributed well. You could have one person just doing the bare minimum and another person working super hard and it would not get resolved.
