Bad
Manger was not professional at all the neither was staff members, they were disrespectful and childish. The food would be dropped and pick up and put back into the bag depending on if it didn’t fall out the container was in. Not sanitary at all.
Pros
A free crew meal, and paid more than minimum wage.
Cons
Staff and management.

A place to examine what you want and need out of life
Working at McDonalds helps one to learn valuable communication skills to use for their career. This is a place to do your best in order to achieve great customer relationships. Teamwork skills really help in this organization.

Easy Job
The work day is pretty simple after training. While I didn't get trained as extensively as I had hoped, working while learning was the easiest way for most to understand orders and preparation. The management and coworkers were easy to work with.
Pros
Discounts, Good Work Atmosphere
Cons
Poor Customer Experiences Often

It's an okay place to work.
It's not the worst first job for someone to get. If your not used to coming to work every day it would be a good job to get started out. The pay is okay and the hours are above average.

Fine first job anything else stay away
As a first job it would be great, but the terrible schedule ruined it. Signed up for part time and ended up working almost 35 hours a week. Being forced to work closing and mourning shifts didn't help either.

It was alright
The staff was ok back when I worked at McDonalds during 2014. The starting wage was really low at the time and it became really stressful at times. It's ok for a first time job or if you need something that you can find.

Decent starting point
McDonalds is a good starter job for anyone looking to gain some experience. There's many advancement options within the company, and they offer some decent employee benefits.

It's Okay.
McDonald's wasn't a bad job. It can get really stressful when your busy but as long as everyone is doing their jobs everything will be fine. There are also every slow day and time where there will be nothing to do and over staffed and when that happens the manager will send you home.

McDonald's Restaurant
I worked at McDonald's Restaurant for a very short period. It wasn't exactly pleasant and not my cup of tea. It's a extremely fast paced job and a very stressful environment. Management is terrible and are very rude and have bad attitudes. Costumers are snippy and it's a constant battle. I would not recommend this to people, Who don't enjoy face paced things and rude people's.

I liked working their but it just wasn’t for me.
I started working their for my first job. I was really nervous, but as time went on things got better and I got the hang of everything really quickly. I left McDonald’s because I needed a higher pay for my car insurance and all of my bills.

A job for now
McDonald’s is a fast paced job for friendly individuals. The job is fairly easy with proper training. The management at this location ( Lincoln mall) was awful. General manager is impolite and discriminating against individuals who have anxiety.

Productive, up pace, crowded,
In my opinion i would not recommend McDonalds to any of my peers because they under pay, you are working 40-50 hours a week and only making 300$ a pay check thats not it for me.
