    I worked at McDonald's full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    The fast-paced environment always kept me on my feet, so the hours would just fly by. Flexible scheduling, allowing for as many hours as you want.

    Cons

    Constantly hiring new people, who only end up staying a week and then leaving, so I found myself constantly training new employees and it got in the way of my work after awhile.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on making new employees more comfortable and that they don't feel like they are under too much pressure, and they won't leave.
