Working at McDonald's
Crew Member (Former Employee), Proctor, MNJuly 31, 2015
Pros: Great first job
At the location I worked at, I really enjoyed working for McDonald's. I know that's not the case with every store, but at the store I was employed at the managers were great. They were very understanding people, and held you to a high quality standard. I loved working here. It was great for a first job and an introduction to the working world.

McDonalds
McDonalds Crew Trainer (Current Employee), Lavonia, GAJuly 31, 2015
Pros: the friends you make and the work experience
Cons: Short breaks, the healthcare, the GREASE, and some of the rules
McDonalds is a good place to start out at and to build yourself and to start building your work history. It's a great place to meet new people. Each day is different. You walk in and you don't know what that day is going to be like, it could be a fast steady crazy day or it could be a slow boring just stocking and cleaning day. You never know who you're gonna meet or whats going to happen. You have the awesome regulars that come in and you automatically know what they want and how they want it. You become friends with the regulars and even make friends with the customers that come in there for the first time. Some things I've learned from working is McDonald's is to never judge and to always be optimistic about situations. People thing it's easy working in fast food. Its not. TRUST ME. Sometimes customers do get a little rowdy and agitated but you have to stay calm because it's either you get loud with them and loose your job and nothing happens to them or you stay calm and make them look dumb for getting rowdy for no reason. You have to always be optimistic because just a smile could make a persons day. I have made so many close friends while working there. Making them smile is the best part of my job and the hardest part about my job is having to hold your tongue but in the end it is worth it. You may argue and disagree with your co-workers but at the end of the day you realize it's not worth it. You all become a family and you learn to work together, to help each other, and to look out for each other.

Ups and Downs
Swing Manager (Current Employee), Dale City, VAJuly 31, 2015
Pros: Free lunch, interesting co-workers
Cons: understaffed, language barriers, no helath care benefits, management
A typical can be up or down: do to being understaffed, the shift manager not being around when you need them and not being able to communicate with everyone, but some of the customers and coworkers can make the day a little better by making you smile and being able to help out when you really need it.

Shift Manager (Former Employee), Russellvill, ARJuly 31, 2015
Pros: Free lunches.
Cons: rude boss, and short breakes
A typical day at work for the most part was fun, a little difficult but worth it in the end.
I learned that hard work does pay off, you get more things to look forward everyday and better job opportunities was available later on.
the managing was the fun part, you got to learn about so much more then what you did as a crew member.
the co-workers was the best part, to me, they made the day go by quicker, and you had to have a good team to make things run smooth.
the hardest part of the job was maybe accidently messing things up, or not knowing exactly what to do at the very moment.
the most enjoyable part was knowing you worked as hard as you could and got stuff done the right way and that the costumers was satisfied.
