    I worked at McDonald's (More than a year)

    Pros

    Very friendly and helpful co'workers team work oriented. Managers at the franchise I worked at on my shift were very considerate and appreciated their workers.

    Cons

    During the time that I was working at the East North Ave. franchise management was about to change and the business was in total chaos financially. Our checks were bouncing and now their under a totally new management team with new owners.

    Advice to Management

    Continue with the great service and continue using the card to pay employees,

    Pros

    free/or discounted food, some of the people you meet working there.

    Cons

    hours are not consistent, the hourly wage is low, work life can be frustrating...Hungry and angry customers..The only thing the managers are focused on is keeping the hourly labor below $20 an hour. No considerations made for their human employees not even water breaks

    Advice to Management

    raise the wage, think about your employees and not about your pockets for once
