Crew Member (Former Employee), Elk Grove, CAAugust 31, 2015
Pros: Free lunch, Flexible hours, friendly co-workers.
Cons: Poor management, unfavorable location.
I was employed at Mcdonald's while i went to school, they worked around my schedule so I was very rarely late to work. I learned the effect that good customer service and a positive attitude can have on a customer's visit. I can't complain about my co-workers, they were all kind and hardworking. The hardest part of the job was working while we were understaffed for the day which, unfortunately, happened a little too often.

good company to work for. The free meal for a four hour shift is a good deal. The profit sharing and 401k are good. I liked that they supplied uniforms.

Interesting place to work
Cashier/ Crew multiple locations (Former Employee), Bossier City, LAAugust 31, 2015
A typical day involved ringing up customers and main ting order and cleanliness of the store. I learned how to work hard and work as a team player. The management was good supported and trained their staff well. My co workers often were young but they worked hard. The hardest part of my job was juggling all of the necessary tasks when busy. The most enjoyable part of the job was meeting and getting to know co workers and customers.

Horrible
Manager (Former Employee), Mason, MIAugust 31, 2015
McDonald's was a joke of a place to work. People were rude, management didn't care. Very little pay for a lot of work. I hated the hours as well. No break and working 15 hours at times.

Fast speed resturant but also very friendly and good quality on food, and great place to see kids smile.
Manager (Current Employee), San AntonioAugust 31, 2015
Pros: Fun environment and supportive crew.
Cons: Not a great pay, and management team.
As a manager my typical day at work was managing the team get them to work as a team and provide the fast, clean, and fresh quality to the customers. I also skim the registers, made my deposits, and take them to the bank. I did learn a lot I went their as a crew and move up as a manager. So I did learn a lot with the counting money, doing interviews, counting waste, and just to manage employees to work together as a team. The hardest part for me was to get the employees to work together and get along the fact that I was younger than them ,but I kept trying and should them respect and to understand that I wasn't here to take their job, but only trying to help the restaurant out. I got to say I did like my job and enjoy working at a place where I saw kids smiles and making parents happy with their service.

Fun but to much drama
Crew Trainer (Former Employee), St. Thomas Virgin IslandsAugust 31, 2015
Pros: Free lunches and great employees
Cons: Drama and unfair managers
At this job started out as a cashier, but growing with the company, employees, and customers I've been promoted as crew trainer. A crew trainer is a little similar to being a supervisor if the managers for the store is busy we would have to take over and keep control of floor. I also train all current and future employees, I enjoyed this job I was even recommend as employee of the month. My managers and everyone loved and enjoyed my presence they told me that I was being promoted to manager but I was deciding to leave to moved to Orlando to soon everyone was sad but I had personal reasons. I still plan on giving the same help and eager to the next job I get.
