    Good company to work for.

    Crew Member (Current Employee) Springfield, MO

    ProsSet schedule (I work overnights) and full time pay. Most of the people I work with are pretty decent, except for a few

    ConsBeing the only woman who's worked overnights here in 3 years, it's been difficult. There has been harassment and discrimination.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPlease start respecting employees no matter what your personal issues against them are.

    Great first job

    Cashier (Former Employee) Arlington, TX

    ProsGetting along with everyone is easy. It's fun, only if you try to make it that way. Discounted food. It was a great balance between work and social lives. No experience is required which is a plus. A place where you can build your experiences.

    ConsLow pay of course. Some customers were very disrespectful. I felt that I worked really hard, but other people were being offered a higher position and I felt that I deserved as well. I'm not saying I wanted a career with this company but it would've been nice to get that experience to put onto my future resumes.

    An amazing place to build skills.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsNo day is the same. There are always new challenges to set. It is very rewarding to be developed through the system and then develop those underneath you. Once a GM, you get to handle many elements of a multi-million dollar business. From retail to production to inventory to scheduling to HR to finance you will gain a great deal of transferable knowledge.

    ConsWhen a company is the top in its industry, they are a target for misplaced perceptions. The stigma towards this business is unfortunate. Having been privy to a number of comparable businesses, I have found McDonald's to be a leader in quality of product and people development within its industry.

    McDonald's is Good

    Crew Member (Former Employee) Glendale, AZ

    ProsGreat people to work with. I learned how to handle pressure and make the best of my work because the costumers are
    in your hands. I was taking orders, ringing them up and taking the cash. McDonald’s provided me with great costumer service experience

    ConsWork shifts were not always the best, the managers would not give me my desired time to work just because there were too many people

    Advice to Senior ManagementMake better schedules. Keep it up

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
