    It's McDonald's, so you know it's good.

    Department Manager (Current Employee) Aurora, CO

    ProsCareer development, Fun fast-paced work, Awesome coworkers, decent benefits.
    I personally enjoy the 401k and vacations.

    ConsRushed training, Understaffed due to poor management, Empty promises.
    I enjoy McDonald's as a whole, but on the corporate side in Denver, they make very poor decisions.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThink about the long term, not just making a quick buck.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    An amazing place to build skills.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsNo day is the same. There are always new challenges to set. It is very rewarding to be developed through the system and then develop those underneath you. Once a GM, you get to handle many elements of a multi-million dollar business. From retail to production to inventory to scheduling to HR to finance you will gain a great deal of transferable knowledge.

    ConsWhen a company is the top in its industry, they are a target for misplaced perceptions. The stigma towards this business is unfortunate. Having been privy to a number of comparable businesses, I have found McDonald's to be a leader in quality of product and people development within its industry.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Great first job

    Cashier (Former Employee) Arlington, TX

    ProsGetting along with everyone is easy. It's fun, only if you try to make it that way. Discounted food. It was a great balance between work and social lives. No experience is required which is a plus. A place where you can build your experiences.

    ConsLow pay of course. Some customers were very disrespectful. I felt that I worked really hard, but other people were being offered a higher position and I felt that I deserved as well. I'm not saying I wanted a career with this company but it would've been nice to get that experience to put onto my future resumes.
