Featured Review

Former Employee - Crew Member/Grill Cook

I worked at McDonald's full-time for less than a year

Pros

Coworkers and management great to work for. Fast pace.

Cons

Nothing negative to say about Happy Meals.

Former Employee - CSA - Customer Service Associate

I worked at Wawa part-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Easy to move up on in rank, work is simple and can be fun. Make great friends and some managers are the best you’ll ever work with and treat you like a person/family. Great care packages

Cons

Depending on the store and managers, they can make you hate going in, cliques, start new people at higher rates after you get hired.

Advice to Management

Act more like a human being with understanding about people who are close to family and be more understanding to those with families and are close to their families. Emergencies happen. Stop hiring... kids who care more about being social than work.
