    Pros

    It was a dependable job that always kept you busy. Pay was decent based on the work I was doing.

    Cons

    There were no benefits even though I was basically a key manager.

    Advice to Management

    If the pay is going to be low include benefits so your managers want to stay.

    Pros

    Working at McDonalds is like working at restaurant, probably because it is a restaurant.

    Cons

    In culinary school I had to purchase a crumber, but I never get to use it here at McDonalds

    Advice to Management

    Upgrade the tables, then add table cloths. Finally, let the staff use crumbers.

    Pros

    The pro's to working for the company are are the room for advancement which involves good pay and insurance. You just have to work extra hard and put in in extra hours in order to advance

    Cons

    Some of the downsides to working to working there is the schedule. Holidays, nights, and weekends are not very conducive for having young children especially as a single parent.

    Advice to Management

    Advice to management would be to remember that everyone is replaceable and not to bleed ketchup for the company. Try to balance family and work when putting in more than the required 50 hours a week

    Pros

    This was my first job and I learned many things when I was working at McDonald's. Although I had a lot of downs while working here, I would not take back the experience. I love how you get trained at all stations, so you basically learn all the aspects of the job. Also, you get free food, during breaks.

    Cons

    Some of the managers are really rude. Some customers have no respect for the employees, whatsoever. Becomes really slow during the winter time, especially after New Year. Therefore, hours will be cut.

    Pros

    Allows you to constantly stay on your feet. Great pay check as well as benefits. Provides a very flexible schedule.

    Cons

    Some customers are hard to deal with. There is little break time. Management can be difficult at times. Customers must always be right.

    Advice to Management

    I THINK WE NEED MORE TRAINING IN THE FIELD. WE SHOULD MAKE SURE THAT EMPLOYEES ARE AWARE OF WHAT IS EXPECTED OF THEM
