"Crew was great. The job itself was not bad.The problem is a horrible/unprofessional store manager. There is so much discrimination and some major issues that need to be looked into."

"McDonald's as an organization is a very good company to be a part of. Unfortunately, there are some establishments that don't work so hard under the company's name. Depending on the location and the type of job atmosphere you're in will depend on your performances and overall outcome for advancement."

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."

What do you like about working at McDonald's?

"I like the pay. But even then sometimes you don't get enough hours to even make rent. This job is the worst: low pay, long days, terrible customers, and ignorant managers who break labor laws every day. The only good thing I have ever received from working here besides money is making friends with good people. Most of our crew members are awesome. I can't say the same for the management. The supervisors also demand too much. Some days there are only two of us in the front and we are busy. The supervisors still expect us to do suggestive sales. Sorry, it is humanly impossible to do every step right when you have to take orders, make the orders, take the money, and then hand it all out to the customer while smiling and thinking of sales. I have lost count of the number of times I have had to work through my breaks."

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

"Don't hire any felons please. We already have enough immature students working here."

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

"There are many reasons that are not so good about working at McDonald's: the pressure to make higher sales, making sure all items are well stocked, making sure the customer has a great experience, and earning a good grade for secret shopper. I have to put on a fake smile and voice at work because apparently my normal voice isn't friendly enough, and my real smile isn't wide enough. Customers are extremely rude and demanding. When your coworkers slack off, you have to work twice as hard. I worked for this company in high school, which wasn't too bad, and then I came back and worked at a different nearby store 2 years later when I came home to save money for school. Now where I work, the work environment is unpleasant, with lazy managers and an uneducated store manager who doesn't speak enough English to pass an elementary state standards test. If you live in the northern central coast of California, the job opportunities are limited, which is the only reason why I still work here. My advice is, if there is somewhere else besides McDonald's accepting applications, then apply there, because if you work here, you will definitely not be Lovin' It."

What suggestions do you have for management?

"Schedule enough people to cover breaks, and make sure that all employees receive a fair number of hours. Happy employees mean happy customers."
