    I have been working at McDonald's part-time

    Pros

    The pay is above minimum wage and I find it to be reasonable. Within my store their is essentially unlimited amount of hours and I can take shifts whenever it suits me so it is very flexible.

    Cons

    Very hard work at times and the shifts can be quite long. Sometimes getting time off or holidays off can be a hassle. I have also experienced on many occasions were mangers are very rude to staff and it happens almost every shift.

    Pros

    You make a lot of friends, flexible shifts & free food

    Cons

    Can be a lot of pressure at times, sometimes you have to do things you don’t want (clean), so managers can be arrogant (my experience)

    Advice to Management

    Shift managers don’t have to be so rude

    I have been working at McDonald's full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    - Pick and choose your shifts and can always swap them with a colleague
    - Managers are extremely supportive towards you even if it is about the tiniest thing or something to do with outside of work they will always listen to you no matter what!
    - Always available shifts to pick and choose from.
    - Like a big family, everyone gets on with each other.
    - If you make a mistake it doesn't matter you learn from it and you get lots of guidance from crew trainer's and managers.

    Cons

    -Got to be fast paced if it's busy but that doesn't bother me :).
    - The customers can be a handful but if its a serious problem just hand it over to your manager as they have more information.

    Advice to Management

    Don't need to give advice but just to say thank you (every single one of you's) for everything you have helped me, I really do appreciate it.
