    I have been working at McDonald's

    Pros

    A good place for a first job, the schedule was very flexible. The people were fun to be around most of the time.

    Cons

    Sometimes it was difficult to pick up as many hours as I wanted. As a new employee, the good shifts are difficult to get.

    I worked as a cashier and did the front counter mostly, occasionally worked the drive-thru.

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

    Pros

    They would usually let me get the early shift from 6am to 2pm, so I got finished early. They gave me enough hours and decent pay. We had a Christmas party. Our managers were very nice. They tended to give me regular schedules, so I knew what days I was going to work and what times pretty much.

    Cons

    Fast food is very demanding, especially if you're the cashier. I had to deal with rude customers sometimes. I always hated it when I would see a customer bringing back food, because that meant their order had been messed up and that we would have to redo it. One time I had to clean up a mess from a child whose diaper fell off in the playplace.
