Easy Advancement Chances, but Can be Stressful

Featured review

McDonald's selected this as a representative review
For this being my first job it was pretty fulfilling. I enjoyed my fellow employees and I learned things in the beginning. The pay is nice and the customers are usually nice. They work with your schedules flexibility and the free meals when working is awesome. It's a good place to work overall. The only flaws in my eyes is that things can be stressful on busy nights and some customers lack manners. Also since there is a lack of employees sometimes the amount of helping hands suck.

Needs improvement

Working at McDonald’s, you are immediately underpaid to have new hires come in making more. They are always understaffed and encourage bad food practices.

Horrible place

Horrible place. Don’t care about correct orders. Rude to customers and staff. Management is terrible. Won’t put in the time or effort to correct any wrong doings

Could have been way better

A typical day a work is busy, I didn’t learn anything management was ok, workplace culture was good. There wasn’t anything hard about the job. The most enjoyable part was the people there.


Free lunch


No benefits

Awesome bro

As an Assistant Manager at McDonald's, I have had a wonderful experience working with this fast-food giant. McDonald's is an organization that truly values its employees, and goes out of its way to take care of them.First, the company offers great opportunities for advancement within the organization. As soon as I started working at McDonald's, I felt that there was so much potential for growth and development. The training programs are top-notch, and I felt that I was always learning something new.Second, I have been impressed by how much McDonald's cares about its customers. The company constantly

Bad work environment

Management was barely useful they just told you what to do and then disappear other employees were either hostile or not there genuinely there were only a few good people that worked there

It was okay

Working at McDonald's has its ups and downs, earning it a 2/5 star rating in my book. On the positive side, the staff is generally friendly and easy to get along with, which makes the job more bearable. However, a major downside is the physical toll it takes on your body. You're on your feet for long hours, which can be painful and tiring, leaving your feet sore. Additionally, the job can get monotonous with repetitive tasks, making it mentally exhausting over time. So, while the coworkers are nice, the physical demands and lack of variety in the job can be tough to handle.

Bad job. Would only recommend if you truly want it. It’s hard but it gets harder over time. Management isn’t the best either. I would stay away and get a diff job.

I was kinda bored working here and it was hard to concentrate. So much going on at all times and I’m not sure I would go back. Maybe if you like doing nothing

unreasonable management

Management doesn't seem to see the difference between academically oriented teens working there part-time, vs. what grown-ups should be expected, wrt # of hours/shifts per week.

Good money for what it was

It’s McDonald’s. It’s what you would think. Often worked late but I was fine with it because I wanted the money. Honestly the worst part was the customer service aspect

Sometimes its very easy sometimes it isnt. It all depends on if we were short staff that day or not. But watch out for the managers some are easygoing some are honestly so mean.

Fun place to work

If you can handle working in a fast pace environment with lots of friendly and and diverse people its the place to work. Its a high stress job with minium pay but it will always be a back up plan for most
