KEY NOT FOUND: companyCompare.reviews.temporaryFormer - CNC Machinist

I worked at McDonald's for more than 10 years

Pros

Decent bathrooms. Toilet paper is only one ply so it can be rough at times.

Cons

The ice cream machine isn't actually broken. They just don't want to share it with customers cuz the employees are to busy eating it themselves. Also, some of the customers are to smart. There should... be a maximum IQ range to be able to eat at McDonald's.

Advice to Management

You should pay employees so much .ore than they're worth. Maybe they'll have worse customer service and just a worse attitude towards life itself.
