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

    Pros

    Carrier opportunities, friendly team, good pay. But preferable to work in companies than franchise.

    Cons

    Franchised McDonald’s management is too strick on lunch packs or having a zip of water after work and this doesn’t make friendly environment, which McDonald’s is representing

    Advice to Management

    Relax, because if you too strees staff won’t perform in their best.

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

    Pros

    Holiday Pay,
    Close-knit relationship with other employees
    Free meal every shift
    Hours tailored to suit you
    Newly enforced minimum hours contract
    Very easy to progress

    Cons

    24hr - have to deal with sloppy rude drunks on weekends
    Entitled middle aged women complain about anything and everything
    Despite Min. Hours Contract shifts are still unpredictable so having any sort of planned schedule outside of work goes out of the window if you’re fully flexible with your hours
