Featured Review
"A great job"28 Sep 2020

Former Employee - Crew Trainer

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

Pros

Great culture, good training, a wonderful place to learn a lot of skills in team working, communication, training and all that jazz. great structure in place. i was a student when working at... McDonalds, and found i could balance my life, studies and job well as the company would allow me to do so ( on a zero hour / part time contract ).

Cons

often over stretched and a lot of pressure, sometimes the odd rude customer - but all stepping stones in building your character and experience in the world of work.

Advice to Management

Continue being great.
