    I have been working at McDonald's part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    A good starting job with a flexible schedule. A great way to start and learn about people and business in general.

    Cons

    Depending on where you work or how your manager is, you may have to do more than what is required of you, but this can also be considered as gaining experience.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees right whenever it is in your power to do so.
