Not my chosen career path.
CREWMEMBER (Current Employee), Mt PleasantApril 14, 2014
Because it is fast food, the pace is of course very busy. I begin by building multiple salads and parfaits as instructed by Corporate Headquarters. Also wash dishes as needed from breakfast, retrieve food items from freezer or cooler areas and operate the fryer. Unfortunately the Management at this particular location does not seem to be effective in – more... that the environment is less than pleasant as there is constant bickering (and outright arguments) between coworkers. There is no strong leadership in place so that questions can be answered, but instead depending on whom you ask, will depend on the answer that is given. This creates a true hesitation in performance of job duties because once you complete the task as asked, the next manager will take you to task on that and expect it done differently. I like to know what is expected so that I can fulfil those expectations completely. The attitude and lack of direction would create the the hardest part of the job. I do enjoy the friendships that have developed with some of my coworkers there in addition to some of the regular customers these would be the most enjoyable part of the job. – less

Don't ever come here.
CREW (Former Employee), Washington Court HouseApril 14, 2014
Pros: free lunches, get to meet new people
Cons: short breaks, no healthcare, little to no training, rude customers, little care for workers, little pay, and it smelled.
McDonalds was a job that tested the sanity of even the most stable people. The environment was overall gross, and the only thing that kept me there was the fact that I needed the money, and some of my coworkers were nice. When it came to needs involving injuries at work, they did nothing to help me. I left because of how they treated me.

Crew Member (Former Employee), Greenfield, INApril 14, 2014
The Greenfield McDonald's was extremely busy most of the time. I learned what it meant to be a hard worker, how important team work, being punctal, and dependable was. I personally thought the management was well-rounded. The hardest part of my job was not to take customer's disappointments in the restaurant too personally. The most enjoyable part of – more... my job was making customers happy as well as having great friendships. – less

Productive and busy work setting
Crew Member (Current Employee), Plainville, CTApril 14, 2014
Pros: good hours
Cons: management
I learned to take order, and handle a cash register. I also learned how to have customer service, my service skills and my knowledge of the work field brought me to become a crew trainer and train new people that come in. My coworkers are fun to be around. I think the hardest part is trying to do multiple things at once, but after awhile you get the – more... hang of it. – less

A very high volume of customers everyday. Never a dull moment.
cashier (Former Employee), Greensboro, NCApril 14, 2014
Pros: finally received a employee discount to use on our breaks
Cons: no healthcare, or dental insurance
My typical day at work was filled with my usual happy customers, who always enjoyed seeing our smiling faces to greet them. Business was always good, so there wasn't much down time. I learned to never allow someone else on your drawer during your shift. The managers were quite nice, even under the pressure of the rushes throughout the day. The hardest – more... part of the job was seeing a customer not happy with his/her order due to a minor mistake. The most enjoyable part is leaving at the end of your shift knowing and feeling like you did a great job. – less

How I was learning everything.
Crew Member (Former Employee), Selma, ALApril 14, 2014
Pros: making customers happy.
Cons: having to work 10hrs and only get a 30min break.
I was able to learn everything the store. The managers at this store didn't have a problem with you learning, but its just that they didn't want to pay you what they were supposed to.

I go here normally after midnight and have always received great customer service. The drive-thru line is quick, and my order is always accurate and fresh. Any drink size is now $1. The location is clean, and close to walmart and other business.
