I worked at McDonald's part-time for less than a year

Pros

Working for a Corporate or Family owned based business is great if the respect is there. If you work for a family owned McDonalds it is really a great place to work if the owners have actually worked from the bottom up and understand from a crew member perspective first and then as a owner. You are treated better if the compassion and understanding is there.

Cons

Can be very fast paced at times and the customer is always right even if they are wrong. You have to sometimes put up with more difficult situations then you should have to for the amount of pay that you get. Sometimes they can expect more from you then the praise of a job well done or pay shows.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Try to be consistent in treatment of each crew member, the older workers deserve more respect then what they are given and they work harder then the young high school kids. So they should be paid and treated much better then the fly by night kids that dont care and will just not show up or quit.

    I worked at McDonald's part-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great training program, flexible schedule, good experience, decent pay, good first job for a student, fun co-workers, managers recognize you for your hard work, and good opportunities to move up. Also 50% off any McDonald's in Canada!

    Cons

    Mean and rude customers. You smell like oil and grease after work. Can get really busy and hectic.
