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

    Pros

    co workers feel like family at times especially when it gets tough, whether faulty machinery or minimal staff to run the store they give their all. unless you've worked in fast food you have no clue what difficulties we go through to get the job done.

    Cons

    when machines break down and we have to wait a long period before they get fixed. its' not as if we can just buy a new machine. their is a long chain to go through to get things done. it's not that we as a company/ store are lazy or do not wish to fulfil your need for an ice cream mccafe beverage or frappe. it's the company that provides the equipment aren't so quick to jump to our aid. sometimes we are short staffed not because we don't want to hire more people , we might not have people applying or the ones that do apply cannot pass the background check or have a horrible application.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    we strive together as a team to achieve daily goals and meet certain numbers. we do not always get this job done. cross train willing employees in other areas so when times are tough and there are 3- 4 people there who are willing to stay and get the job done can do so in the fastest time possible.
