    Pros

    Working at McDonald's is great you get knowledge of working the whole store, and the opportunity to move up in the company is present. Plus it opens up other restaurant/hospitality opportunities for future employment.

    Cons

    There were no cons at my site, the customers loved the crew I worked with especially our manager. We had a ton of regulars come into the store a few times a week.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Put the customers first, and they will always come back.

    The best thing about working here is the opportunity for advancement.

    Cons

    There are plenty of people who obtain this job to try and just collect a pay check instead of to work for their paycheck.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Just stick to the rules and do not let people get away with things that compromise the management or company.
