Lack of Fairness & immature management
Warehouse person (Current Employee), Vancouver, BCAugust 11, 2014
Pros: pay. benefits. 10 hr shifts. work 4 days a week.
Cons: sore back. lack of fairness. treated like a dog.
There is something seriously wrong with the warehouse management that run this facility. They jump to conclusions, make irrational-emotional decisions and are subjective rather than objective to what or whom they deal with. When an error is made by them that a warehouse person or driver brings to their attention, their response is slow and attitude – more... is immature to the group as to say who are you to know better than us.

Fairness is severely lacking at this facility. If you are cronies with the warehouse management you will survive physically in work load, but if you are honest and say nothing and keep your head down and work, warehouse management will drive you into the ground until you break.

God forbid if you exceed your pick times for an order and sit down for few seconds to drink a cup of water to re-energize they will chase after you and discipline or threaten to discipline you for wasting company time; meanwhile the management and their warehouse person cronies are hanging out in the shipping office joking around doing nothing.

I am optimistic that other Martin Brower management facilities are fair, calm, cool, collected and appreciative of input and I hope change happens here soon. – less

Horrible
very ex-driver (Former Employee), CanadaMarch 12, 2014
Cons: everything
Worked here as a class 1 truck driver.I was supposed to be full-time but didnt get raise or benefits after 7 months ,then was told I was hired as summer relief,was an office mistake but still didnt get my back pay.At the McDonalds you have to hand ball all the products,frozen burgers,fries etc as trucks dont have tail-lifts and the stores dont have – more... fork-lifts ,which is stupid.You have to be on spare board when you start which means you are the senior drivers dog.To work your way out of spare board you have to bend over,i left after 7 months ,worst job i ever had. – less

Great Company Overall, Very little room for advancement, At least in the Orlando Faciity
Transportation (Current Employee), Orlando, FLMay 19, 2014
Pros: work stabilty when the scheduling is done right
Cons: upper managment doesnt really believe in their own programs of leaders developing leaders
This is a great company to work for overall. They believe in creating a balance between home and work which for a 24/7 operation is very hard to do. New employees have a very tough 1st yr until you can get a bid that works for you and your family. A few negative things to consider. It is a 24/7 environment so be prepared to work days nights and weekends – more... for the 1st 5 yrs easily. you can only work a max 60 hrs a wk they say that's a McDonalds rule not theirs. Upper management at the facility I currently work at doesn't believe in promoting its current employees because they feel it creates problems even though they have a leader developing leaders program in place to help you advance but I guess that depends on where and how you want to advance. But please don't take that as a negative if you are content in your role you can easily put in a 20 yr career and nobody would know you where there. – less

Horrible experience as a driver in Harriman ny
Employed (Current Employee), Harriman NyDecember 7, 2013
Pros: free coffee
Cons: to many to list.
Been a driver for 11 years worked about 3 different places during my career, and this has to be the worst company to work for as a Class A driver. You are on call 24hrs a day working 5 to 6 days per week no weekends off any kind of family gathering have to be put on hold if you are paged on your Nextel if you refuse they are quick to write you up as – more... a book off. Making deliveries to McDonald's can be challenging since the managers and employees at these McDonald's do not hold any considerable respect for the drivers. Sending you out in a 48ft trailer to back into the tightes holes in all boroughs of NYC. They are anti union yet the Martin brower is a union shop in Harriman ny, even though the union itself is a joke if the company wants you out they will get you out union or not, The whole place is disorganized, you have routing experts that never been on a truck or understand what frustration can have when they send you out at 3pm to manhattan to make 4 deliveries then when your done send you out to run a special delivery for a box of napkins all the way to queens. I can keep going on and on about this place I would personally stay away there are to many other companies out there that pay decent and also show drivers their respect. – less

Awful Work
order selector (Current Employee), Fairfield, OHOctober 31, 2013
You start out in the freezer and work like a maniac. Someone is always getting hurt, it's not a safe place to work. I would NEVER recommend this job to anyone. The pay is OK, but it's not worth what you have to put your body through.

decent pay, bad hours/days, fast paced work
Warehouse Picker (Former Employee), Harriman, NYOctober 11, 2013
Pros: decent pay
Cons: more than you would think from a multi million dollar company
Sometimes mandatory overtime, dangerous place to work, every second of the day you are timed and have to meet a picking standard. If you stop to use the bathroom, you have to work twice as fast to make up that time. Most of the powered jacks are always low on battery or operate poorly.

Work Hard, Play Hard
Operations Supervisor (Current Employee), Port Allen, LaJanuary 11, 2013
Pros: good wages, stability of employment, benefits, and fun co-workers
Cons: long hours
MB is a progressive and ever-changing company meeting the extremely demanding needs of an ever-changing customer, McDonald's. This employer has been very stable and the local management team can make or break your experience with them. Everyone works, including the GM, HR, and Supervisors, and function in multiple roles, but they make the workplace – more... fun and pleasant. If you don't mind working hard, adjusting to change, making money, and playing hard, join the team. – less

empresa líder do mercado no ramo
Operador de armazenágem (Current Employee), Osasco, SPOctober 16, 2012
Pros: condições totais de segurança
Cons: nenhuma constatação
sobre presenciar um colaborador em atividade o que percebi é que realmente há comprometimento da empresa no quesito segurança e de condições adequadas para se exercer qualquer atividade atribuída ao colaborador, o que mais me entusiasmou a participar do quadro de colaboradores foram as atribuições em que conhecidos que trabalham na empresa me falaram
