I have been working at McDonald's full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Teaches usefull every day skills, i.e. multi-tasking.
Teaches you how to work quickly and accurately under pressure

Cons

You cannot win, at McDonalds, unless your store is phenomenal as a whole. No matter how successful, you, as an individual may be, someone will always be able to make your success irrelevant, whether they hand food out wrong or simply suck at their job.

Advice to Management

Schedule more people, always, labor goals are too low.

    I worked at McDonald's part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Working for a Corporate or Family owned based business is great if the respect is there. If you work for a family owned McDonalds it is really a great place to work if the owners have actually worked from the bottom up and understand from a crew member perspective first and then as a owner. You are treated better if the compassion and understanding is there.

    Cons

    Can be very fast paced at times and the customer is always right even if they are wrong. You have to sometimes put up with more difficult situations then you should have to for the amount of pay that you get. Sometimes they can expect more from you then the praise of a job well done or pay shows.

    Advice to Management

    Try to be consistent in treatment of each crew member, the older workers deserve more respect then what they are given and they work harder then the young high school kids. So they should be paid and treated much better then the fly by night kids that dont care and will just not show up or quit.
