    I have been working at McDonald's full-time

    Pros

    Lots of room for advancement. Plenty of lemon pledge. Very fulfilling.

    Cons

    After a year of working there I was told I, in fact, would not have the opportunity to meet Ronald McDonald. After throwing a fit I was then told Ronald McDonald was a fictional character in the first place and that as the Janitor I would need to clean up the mess I had made during my tantrum.

    Advice to Management

    Don't lie to your employees about the existence of a happy clown that gleams hope when in fact he is a non-sentient marketing scheme.

    Most people are friendly and talkative , and the managers will help you if you ever need anything dealing with food to just talking and you can always ask anyone around you for help

    There are some ignorant people that will threaten you but once you deal with one you’ll learn how to handle any other guest
