Not a bad paying job but the management needs serious help.
Crew Member/Cashier (Former Employee) – Altoona, IA – April 6, 2016
I've worked for the same McDonald's for 3 years. Adventureland Drive, in Altoona, Iowa. Working there as a high school student was perfect. Only need paychecks for gas, and other wants. But, they're really not good at raises when worked for, or bumping up the crew member to high positions. 3 years there and was only crew, and never offered much higher, working part time with full time hours and being one of the hardest working people there.
Their management needs some serious help and training. Most of the managers there weren't trying to be a boss, but a friend. Which is definitely a plus because then they're easier to talk to. But, when they will stand in the parking lot with crew not on the clock, just to hang out; leaving all the other employees inside to work while missing four or five workers to the hang out in the parking lot.
I would recommend McDonald's to people looking for work inside school, or just for extra cash flow. But you have to be able to deal with a lot of things not signed up for.
50% off meals while working, half hour breaks.
not paid breaks, unfair hours
