  • Cook @ McDonald's in Chicago, IL

    "I worked at Mcdonald's for two years, and in those two years, they were nothing but nice to me. The pay was good and my coworkers were even better, but with a degree in my field of Computer Science, I don't see myself pursuing a career in the fast-food industry. That's the only reason I'm stepping away."

  • "I have worked for Snuffer's since Dec of 2019. They have an awesome work environment and great management. They are renowned for their signature menu of legendary burgers and famous original cheddar fries, they pride their-selves in fresh, scratch-made products throughout the kitchens. All of the burgers are fresh – never frozen – 100% ground chuck and cooked to order. Their chicken fingers are hand-breaded and fried to golden perfection. And, each order of original cheddar fries are topped with freshly grated aged Wisconsin cheddar cheese over hand-cut Idaho potato fries."
