I had been working at McDonald's since I was 16, but a lot has changed over the years. The management was a lot better and so were the co-workers that I got to work with. As the years went on, we went through three different store managers, each of them letting the store fall apart more and more. A typical day at work now is have to do more than one persons job because there are so many call offs with no one wanting to come in to cover their shift. Many of the co-workers aren't motivated to work like others, which makes the ones that are willing to work have to do more work than they really should be doing. The workers that they are hiring are mainly younger, so that could be the reason why. Also, a lot of co-workers bring their personal lives to work. This causes a lot of problems where certain people can't work together or they have attitudes, which is a very hostile environment to work it. I think the hardest part of the job is when we are short staffed and you have to do more than one persons job. Although, I can say that McDonald's has really helped me with social skills and I can handle customers problems a lot better than when i first started working there.
