Working at McDonald's

    Labeling McDonalds jobs in their franchises (e.g cashier, burger-flipper, janitor) as McJobs is oh so true. They are low-paying, lack many benefits, they work you to near death (no to death though so they can use you again.) and there is no mental stimulation. I heard of someone working there for 5 years, became manager and still makes $8.00 per hour. McDonald should cut the TV ads showing someone going from burger-flipper to the big Girl-Kahuna and just show that the jobs are good first jobs for high schoolers and temporary work for immigrants (until they get established and move on to better paying jobs.)

    Do any of you know what happens if you get a "Needs Improvement" overall on your performance review? I know you don't get a raise but a manager said that you might be placed on a 30-day probation as well. Is that true? (I think I might get that rating on my October review.)

    Do you work at McDonald's? How did you find the job? How did you get that first interview? Any advice for someone trying to get in?

    The store I'm applying to is an independent franchise in Pennsylvania. Is it possible to become an hourly shift manager at the age of 16? I have prior restaurant experience at a McDonald's (I worked crew for this particular store for one year) and have had customer service experience in retail since then.

    It's always hard to know what to expect when going in for that interview -- and preparation can make all the difference. What is the interview process like at McDonald's? Any advice on striking the right note?

    I would think for anyone to serve in DC they have to first serve us all Mac Donald`s then if the do good for the first 60 days then they can go to the white house & so on? if they get fired from MD then that when the next team or a runner up team takes office...

    I believe McDonalds practices unfair employment practices. I worked there for the last seven years, and was recently terminated based on heresay and coersion. I was a staff salary paid manager. If you are planning to apply for a restaurant management position with them, don't bother. It isn't worth it. All my hard work and honesty and intregrity meant nothing to them.

    Every business has it's own style. What is the office environment and culture like at McDonald's? Are people dressed in business casual, jeans and t-shirts, or full-on suits? Do folks get together for Friday happy hours and friendly get-togethers? What is a typical day in the life of an employee at McDonald's?

    What are the average starting salaries, bonuses, benefits and travel requirements like at McDonald's? What do you like best about working at McDonald's? Are there any great perks or special treats for employees?
