  1.  

    A lot of favoritism. Was harassed about my tattoos 7 months after hired but everyone else could show theirs.

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

    Pros

    Will kind of work with your schedule

    Cons

    Game of favoritism. You are promised promotions, but never receive if you aren't family of the management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    This is a job. Not a family reunion. Give promotions to those who work and deserve it

    I have been working at McDonald's

    Pros

    I make money, I like interacting with the customers, and I like some co-workers.

    Cons

    Some co-workers are lazy and will push some of their little jobs on you. At times when you are busy and they are not they question why you aren't assisting them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure everyone keeps up on their work.
