"A very fast paced environment, and a very friendly environment, good for the first job, there is a possibility to move up to manager level. Managers are usually very nice. and you will eventually burn out. But as I said, good for the first job."

"I worked for McDonald's for about 1 year. The company has a highly energized atmosphere. The management is very encouraging, and motivational from my experience. They are very efficient and set goals for employees and frequently praise their workers. However, work also becomes very competitive. Management is also overly critical, negative, and sometimes unrealistic. While teamwork is supported, both managers and coworkers ultimately love to make each other look bad."

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."

"My experience was not so well working third-shift fast food."

What do you like about working at McDonald's?

"I think the only thing I enjoyed at McDonald's was the customer interaction."

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

"A job is a job, but always keep looking for something more than this."

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

"They would always schedule me on days I asked off 2-3 weeks in advance. It was a minimum wage job. The workers were immature and would always try to get others in trouble."
