No life balance and bad management
orderfiller (Former Employee), Conroe,txMay 5, 2015
Pros: Pay, overtime, coworkers
Cons: no weekends, old machines, management
Worked for a while here, worked like a slave and still wanted more and more , more. Non working PE( electric jacks) and old units. Management needed some work and not informing us workers first when change happens(unorganized). Played favorites and also everybody works weekends unless you been there 3 yrs or more then you get 1 day off in the weekends. DONT RECOMMEND unless need of money.

Operations Lead (Current Employee), Dickson, TNApril 30, 2015
Pros: we get free food a lot. Everyone is pretty laid back
Cons: your going to work your a** off
Good company to work for, its just very hard work. Good co-workers, have a lot of good friends that work there. Expect to work in a giant freezer for 10 hours. Expect to pick up about 2000 boxes a day, weighing about 35 lbs. Can't be soft and work here. You get paid on the amount of work you do. Some people make upwards of $30 an hour.

Not the best place but it's a job
Supervisor (Former Employee), NJApril 13, 2015
Pros: Competitive wages
Cons: work/balance, no investment in employee growth, poor schedule
The company is unorganized and if you're willing to give up free time to devote 100% of your attention 24/7 via your cell phone/computer, then go ahead and apply. Goodluck with this bureaucratic company, they don't value their employees, especially drivers. They will pay you high, to compensate for the extra stress you have to deal with. If you're a driver, run away, if you're looking to work in management, negotiate job details instead of salary. The company ships for McDonalds as a dedicated carrier but they don't take pride in their drivers safety and well being. They claim that they do, but they don't.

i dont know what former employees where smoking.
yard jockey (Former Employee), enfield, ctMarch 16, 2015
Pros: its a job
Cons: to much to list
this place is horrible unless your a driver because they max out at 24 an hr. everyone else got a lot less pay and always worked harder, nothing you do is ever good enouogh for them. the enfield place is poorly managed, where even the trans supervisor has racial comments. and it is ran on a point system which is also ridiculous. wouldnt recommend anyone for this place. forget hometime, but if your a thrill seaker who love to do nothing but work than this is the place for you, just dont be upset when you have to deal with the run down equipment they have. i read a review here that said you get 2 20 min breaks, well that is one lucky person. I worked 10 hr shifts here and only got a 30 min break. thats not enough time to even go out get food and return on time like they want. they demand too much and dont bother asking for a raise. once your at max you get no more. no matter how much better you work or how better your profromance gets.

Great Company Overall, Very little room for advancement, At least in the Orlando Faciity
Transportation (Current Employee), Orlando, FLMay 19, 2014
Pros: work stabilty when the scheduling is done right
Cons: upper managment doesnt really believe in their own programs of leaders developing leaders
This is a great company to work for overall. They believe in creating a balance between home and work which for a 24/7 operation is very hard to do. New employees have a very tough 1st yr until you can get a bid that works for you and your family. A few negative things to consider. It is a 24/7 environment so be prepared to work days nights and weekends for the 1st 5 yrs easily. you can only work a max 60 hrs a wk they say that's a McDonalds rule not theirs. Upper management at the facility I currently work at doesn't believe in promoting its current employees because they feel it creates problems even though they have a leader developing leaders program in place to help you advance but I guess that depends on where and how you want to advance. But please don't take that as a negative if you are content in your role you can easily put in a 20 yr career and nobody would know you where there.

Horrible experience as a driver in Harriman ny
Employed (Current Employee), Harriman NyDecember 7, 2013
Pros: free coffee
Cons: to many to list.
Been a driver for 11 years worked about 3 different places during my career, and this has to be the worst company to work for as a Class A driver. You are on call 24hrs a day working 5 to 6 days per week no weekends off any kind of family gathering have to be put on hold if you are paged on your Nextel if you refuse they are quick to write you up as a book off. Making deliveries to McDonald's can be challenging since the managers and employees at these McDonald's do not hold any considerable respect for the drivers. Sending you out in a 48ft trailer to back into the tightes holes in all boroughs of NYC. They are anti union yet the Martin brower is a union shop in Harriman ny, even though the union itself is a joke if the company wants you out they will get you out union or not, The whole place is disorganized, you have routing experts that never been on a truck or understand what frustration can have when they send you out at 3pm to manhattan to make 4 deliveries then when your done send you out to run a special delivery for a box of napkins all the way to queens. I can keep going on and on about this place I would personally stay away there are to many other companies out there that pay decent and also show drivers their respect.

Awful Work
order selector (Current Employee), Fairfield, OHOctober 31, 2013
You start out in the freezer and work like a maniac. Someone is always getting hurt, it's not a safe place to work. I would NEVER recommend this job to anyone. The pay is OK, but it's not worth what you have to put your body through.

decent pay, bad hours/days, fast paced work
Warehouse Picker (Former Employee), Harriman, NYOctober 11, 2013
Pros: decent pay
Cons: more than you would think from a multi million dollar company
Sometimes mandatory overtime, dangerous place to work, every second of the day you are timed and have to meet a picking standard. If you stop to use the bathroom, you have to work twice as fast to make up that time. Most of the powered jacks are always low on battery or operate poorly.

Operations Supervisor (Current Employee), Port Allen, LaJanuary 11, 2013
Pros: good wages, stability of employment, benefits, and fun co-workers
Cons: long hours
MB is a progressive and ever-changing company meeting the extremely demanding needs of an ever-changing customer, McDonald's. This employer has been very stable and the local management team can make or break your experience with them. Everyone works, including the GM, HR, and Supervisors, and function in multiple roles, but they make the workplace fun and pleasant. If you don't mind working hard, adjusting to change, making money, and playing hard, join the team.
