Featured Review

Former Employee - Restaurant Crew

I worked at McDonald's full-time

Pros

The work staff is always plentiful, reliable and trained extremely well causing a fluid and satisfying work place ennvironment. On top of that, the overall standard for positive deminer is kept so... high among the employees it even feels genuine throughout the customers

Cons

Not much to complain about. I didn't prefer the truck duty but it wasn't terrible. Every now and then the store would get rushed but it was never really too bad. The only true to the name "con"s that... comes to mind were either truck duty or dishwashing. Not to suck up but it truly was a pretty rad experience overall.

Advice to Management

Keep happy friends!
