Stop the hanging out with workers outside of work then coming in and talking about everything they’ve done together in the office instead of working on the floor. Stop letting the same people call out at least 1-2 days every single week like clock work. Pay the people that actually do the work more than you pay the ones that stand there just holding up the table!!
For me they used an automated reply bot that asked me some questions and then scheduled an interview for me. It's called McHire, takes about 5 minutes
How long does it take to get hired from start to finish at McDonald's? What are the steps along the way?
It can take a day or two weeks. Just depends on how busy the manager is I guess.
I’ve been working at McDonald’s for 5 months now and the workplace can either be great or just straight up awful. We have multiple managers and depending on your location they can be “okay” or just the worst, for me I have 3 who are constantly yelling at you if you aren’t moving and doing something even if there isn’t anything to do at the time. There is blatant favoritism among them and if you aren’t apart of their clique you’re just some tool for them to use. I’m constantly getting blamed for my coworkers mistakes just because they’re liked better, they get the privilege of being lazy while I have to sweat and be consistent so they don’t antagonize me. The place is awful when you’re with the wrong people, but it can be fun when you have friends around and a manager who isn’t a toxic. The customers are also one of the things I hate, sorry to be blunt but if you’re going to a fast food place and they ask you to speak up then speak the f up, don’t sit in your car and be a mouse and get mad at them for simply trying to take your order. The amount of times a customer has been rude to me is insane but I can’t say anything no matter how much I want to, I simply just comply with a nice voice but when that headset is turned off you better believe I’m bad mouthing you. Overall the environment is fast paced and very stressful.
If you were in charge, what would you do to make McDonald's a better place to work?
Allow employees that want to work more hours, do so. If they want to go full-time give them the opportunity.
Bring back to training classes and hands on training. Have the CEO come to the store more often and see how they are doing other then looking at numbers. Recognize all the employees not just managers.
