    Former Employee - Drive Thru Cashier in Atlanta, GA

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

    Pros

    I was literally stopped and thanked at the drive-thru window for my good customer service! By customers of course, and they would tell me that they've never received that type of service at this particular McDonald's.

    Cons

    Wow! I have never been treated so badly in my life. Managers/supervisors were extremely rude, and the pay was beyond low to be treated like that.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Grow up. Leave your personal issues at home!

    I have been working at McDonald's

    Pros

    The best part about it was making new friends I guess. And earning a little bit of money.

    Cons

    It was a boring monotonous job and you had to deal with annoying customers and over bearing managers some of the time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't take your job so seriously you work at Mcdonalds.
