Review Highlights

Pros
  • Free food is probably the best thing about it, but gets sickening after a month (in 285 reviews)

  • This being the case they have flexible hours and are willing to work around your schedule (in 241 reviews)


Cons
  • As you should expect, every crew member was at or very near the minimum wage level (in 177 reviews)

  • You get to stand for long hours at a time and sometimes encounter rude customers (in 121 reviews)

    Paid vacation (managers), advancement opportunities, free/discount meals, free uniform and shoes, flexible hours, health insurance at superb rates, and finally a great atmosphere.

    Making sure you have patience and maintain a smile even when dealing with upset customers.

    I worked at McDonald's part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Free food and good benefits. You can literally eat at McDonald's every single day. Pension scheme is not that promising though.

    Cons

    Late working hours and bad management. More emphasis on customers than on workers themselves. Lack of leadership.

    Pros

    Excellent food and cool people. The equipment is very fun to run and operate. I love hamburgers. It was a great fun company.

    Pros

    Great place for a first job; diverse duties are performed in a structured and systematic environment. Great opportunity for customer service experience.

    Cons

    Some fellow employees will not be the most motivated individuals, including some managers. Customers can sometimes be unnecessarily rude, but it is a good opportunity to learn how to deal with such situations, which you will encounter in any career.
