    Former Employee - Shift Manager in Platteville, WI
    Former Employee - Shift Manager in Platteville, WI

    I worked at McDonald's full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Flexible hours
    Easy for anyone with leadership potential to get management experience
    Gives you experience working with all types of people

    Cons

    Doesn't always attract co-workers who are easy to work with
    Hours depend on level of business

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest in your workers more. Providing incentives and merit-based raises more often will result in you keeping better workers. I've seen many good employees leave simply because they didn't feel appreciated when they do put forth effort.

    Pros

    Minimum wage, it's a paycheck and that's about it. If it is your first job you will get an introduction to being a surf.

    Poor quality food that makes customers sick and no advancement opportunities worth pursuing.
