    I have been working at McDonald's full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Some of the best reasons to work at McDonalds is the atmosphere , and the fast pace adrenaline rush you get when its lunch time! Also great pay.

    Cons

    some of the downsides would be the scheduling. You can get the days you really need off, and you have to work around their schedules.

    Advice to Management

    To the supervisor, you should quit, you're not so good at your job.
