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

    Pros

    The Best reason to work at McDonald's is the team you get to work with. My fellow managers and crew are awesome. We work together as a team and that's what makes the job flow so smoothly. It makes for a great day at work. I love my team, they're my McFamily.

    Cons

    The only cons I have where I work are, the xtra time you have to stay over because of people not showing up for work, and having to train people that don't want to work and end up quiting and just wasting your time and everyone else's time because they found out what hard work was like.

    Advice to Management

    My advice to management, don't change a thing. What you're doing is working just fine. You're coaching and putting together an awesome management team that I hope will be around for the long haul.

    I have been working at McDonald's part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The manager at my particular McDonald's is very professional, and treats customers and workers very well. We also get a lot of the newer equipment, so it makes the job easier. It's still hard work, though.

    Cons

    It's still a minimum wage job with not a lot of benefits. While it's a great job for someone just out of high school earning work hours, or someone that's in-between the job they really want; it's not the best option for someone looking to build a long-term career (unless you go into management). Plus, if you are not in decent physical shape, you will have difficulty working at McDonald's.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing a good job motivating us workers! We need it!
