"The job is easy and fun. Working partners are great, but at times seems like it is being wasted on times when you are not serving anybody!"

What don't you like about working at McDonald's?

"The office is not thinking about employees at all, and not even talking about marketing. It's like new stuff is being already sold but no materials or posters are even being made. Marketing is totally crap. It is impossible to ask somebody from the office to help with something because we are the lowest layer of workers, but hey, they are in a warm office and they have nothing to worry about but papers!"

What suggestions do you have for management?

"Mainly I would make more aims for people working there. Otherwise, their work becomes pretty routine. You stop seeing any way to grow up!"

What do you like about working at McDonald's?

"It's simple and can be fun. It's honest work, and can provide well."

Do you have any tips for others interviewing with this company?

"This really can be a great job, despite the stereotypes, it does take actual work on everyone's part to make McDonald's a great/fun place to work, and you have to be willing to stay busy all day, every day."

What don't you like about working at McDonald's?

"I'm expected to micromanage when we hire poor crew, or when our training staff drops the ball on bringing them up to speed. I get blamed for things that aren't even my responsibility to oversee, and my time isn't respected as it should be. (I am frequently scheduled outside of my actual availability.)"

What suggestions do you have for management?

"I don't actually know the CEO, or what they actually do within the company, but for my direct boss, I would focus on doing my job instead of constantly trying to run everything, just because that's what I've been doing for so long."

Cashier
in Niagara Falls, NY

What do you like about working at McDonald's?

"I like that the work is constant. I like that everybody there (not including the upper management - ugh) realizes that working at McDonald's is a crappy job and that work is not every employee's whole life. I like that I can fall into a routine and become very, very good at what I do. I like that there is some variety in the work I do, since there are three different positions within the restaurant for a worker like me: cashier for front counter, first booth in drive-through, and second booth. And even then there are sub-jobs and whatnot. I never know for sure where I'll be when I come into work, and they encourage you to branch out and try new parts of the restaurant."

Do you have any tips for others interviewing with this company?

"The more open your schedule is the more likely they'll want to hire you. Be friendly, nerdy, and make yourself sound reliable. The manager knows that it's a crappy job, but he just wants someone he can rely on to show up for shifts and get the work done. ANY experience you have in a fast-paced environment will help you get the job at McDonald's."

What don't you like about working at McDonald's?

"The amount of work you do as opposed to how much you get paid is unfair. The managers can be horrible and incredibly anal, but mostly I just feel bad for them since McDonald's is their whole life. I hate the customers. Most are total creeps. I hate the workplace drama that comes from time to time. I hate the stupid upselling that we have to do. I hate serving our food to obese people. It makes me feel like I'm their dealer. I hate being in a constant rush."

What suggestions do you have for management?

"I would make the upper management/owner work in the store. I would organize breaks better."

Do you have any tips for others interviewing with this company?

"Do not go into this job thinking that it's a lifetime career. The turnover rate at this job is extremely high. People come and go weekly."

"The compensation for the work involved is not nearly equal. When I work, I usually have difficulty walking afterward because I work so hard. This job should pay at least 10 dollars an hour."

"Treat employees with more respect, and pay in relation to the work requested."
