    I always feel so delighted to work in McDonald's, and until now I still have that zeal because of what I learn everyday.

    McDonalds Cashier (Current Employee) Towson, MD

    ProsI like working at McDonald's because it builds me morally, physically and socially in the job environment. In addition to that, McDonald's also augments my market value through the disparate skills it has inculcated in me.

    ConsThe crew members are not often sociable, as each person comes from a different background, so some people are more close to their home mates than to foreigners.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThe upper Management should thrive to dilute favoritism and nurse team work

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Overall a good place to start working

    Crew Member (Current Employee) Ahoskie, NC

    ProsGood with hours. If you show you are a good worker and develop speed in what you do, you shall be fine

    ConsPoor management. Crew trainers have become a little lazy. You are taught the ropes of everything but not all the proper way

    Advice to Senior ManagementThe night shift is a little underpaid. The requirements to clean behind and wipe down Equipment, make food and deal with Rude customers is a challenge because keeping professional is the key.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
