    Pros

    General Manager actually listens to you and cares. There are usually hours guaranteed. They work with your schedule with school or whatever you have outside of work. The owners know everyone's names and come in on a regular basis

    Cons

    Not all of your co-workers want to work... or do work correctly. I mean... it's McDonalds but it's not that great doing everything by yourself.

    Advice to Management

    Don't just promote people because you're in need of new management... look at all of the people that can do the job. There are some people that are more capable of handling the job better than some of managers.

    Pros

    After about six months of working at McDonald's, I was promoted to the position of crew trainer. I enjoyed the quick pace of the promotion because it proves that what McDonald's says about opportunity is true...all you have to do is be willing to learn, ask questions and prove yourself.

    Cons

    A major problem area for the store that I work for is that we are almost always short staffed. In addition, I also found the "competitive pay" not to be so competitive. After about 10 months of working there, I found out that there were employees doing the same job that I was doing with equal seniority for less pay. I also found out that employees that started there after me were making more money than me and were only a regular crew member.

    Advice to Management

    Ensure that you are paying your employees fairly and not trying to pay someone less for the same job that someone else who is making more is doing. The employees discuss their wage an hour with one another and it will get out cause tension in the restaurant.
