Cashier/Cook (Current Employee), Hoopeston, IL – September 29, 2014
Pros: great people to work with
Cons: short breaks
I usually just do what managers as of me, which is basically anything from working drive-thru to kitchen work to cleaning the lobby. I've learned how to be more responsible, not just at work, but outside outside of the work environment as well. I've also learned how to work with people, and how to handle customers. My co-workers are very pleasant to – more... work with and I get along with everyone. The hardest part of my job is probably the fast pace, especially on the weeks when it gets really busy. The most enjoyable part of my job is talking and meeting new people everyday. – less
Customer Service (Former Employee), Port st. lucie, fl – September 29, 2014
Pros: free lunch, discounts
Cons: the food makes you fat
A typical day for me would be jumping right into my work. I learned how to deal with 10 different things going on at one time. There really was no management there, after they saw that it was easy for me to handle the front end on my own they retired to their office, did paper work, and let me deal with everything on my own. My co-workers were hard – more... to work with. Most of them didn't speak English, because its such a diverse work environment it made it harder to communicate. The hardest part of this job is making sure you keep your drive-thru time low, and keeping all of your orders in line. the most enjoyable was learning how to prepare all of the food. – less
Very productive and a good environment to work in.
Crew Member (Current Employee), South Elgin, IL – September 29, 2014
Pros: crew meal
Cons: no breaks
The most fun part of my job would have to be my coworkers. They are the ones that make it a fun place to be in, they make the atmosphere a great environment to be in and especially work in. The hardest part of my job is probably those days when it gets really busy and there is hardly anybody in my division. The pressure and the stress get pretty intense, – more... and there do come points when it becomes a little much to handle. – less
Cashier/Customer Service (Former Employee), Smiths Grove, KY – September 29, 2014
Pros: free lunch, 6 month reviews, plenty of fun people to work with
Cons: managers becoming overly friendly, incompetence in some employees
on a daily basis, while the managers were usually really hard on us(in a good way) during peak hours, a couple of them tended to favor certain people. Not only that they would let these people stand around and do nothing, then when we were busy got kind of upset that the things that helped us run smoothly were not taken care of. That being said, the – more... managers generally were very nice, and took care of us as employees. They tried to keep our schedules as close to what we asked for as possible and unless there was a special occasion they always gave us the days we requested off. All in all it was a very good place to work. – less
Cashier/Crew Trainer (Former Employee), Urbana, OH – September 29, 2014
Pros: free lunchs, making friends, and learning more skills
Cons: short break and no time to go to the bathroom at times.
I would do most of the work in the morning and by about 10 more employees would arrive. I learned that management is a hard job to do especially when its managing a whole bunch of kids. My coworkers were pretty nice most of the time depending upon there mood. The hardest part was dealing with rude customers because the managers wouldnt help you till – more... you were about to explode. I like working with all the older and younger customers its nice when i see smiling faces and its because i did something nice for them. – less

CASHIER / CREW TRAINER (Current Employee), Chicago, IL – September 29, 2014
A typical day at work would be coming to work taking and distributing orders to customers. I often trained new and current employees. McDonalds always has a new item added to the menu, which requires proper training. I see at least 100+ customers a day. Some were new and some were regulars. The hardest part of the job was training the employees to handle – more... a troubling customer. I had to teach them how to control and manage there attitude. Which is very important in this business. The most enjoyable part of the job are the customers. – less
