Good experience
Cashier (Former Employee), Greater Sudbury, ONJuly 15, 2014
Pros: some people you work with
Cons: angry customers
There are so many tasks that have to be completed when doing this job. Whether it be multi tasking or qudra tasking. It can get very stressful but I have been doing it for four and a half years now. I have learned a lot about customer service, quality, food management, safety, cleanliness, managing, money management, time management and more! The hardest – more... part about the job have got to be the angry customers or the mean customers, but the nice customers sure do make up for it! My favorite part is the magic moments created when there is a regular customer and you are a name to name basis with them, it makes it feel more real. – less

Learn a lot and good flexible scheduling
Team Leader/Opening Manager (Current Employee), Penticton, BCJuly 15, 2014
Pros: half off food
Cons: little pay
A typical day at work is taking charge to make sure everything runs smoothly and to make sure that customers are satisfied. I learned all the basics while working there for 5 years. From how to make coffee and take orders, to solving problems and trying to run a restaurant. At the end of the day it's not where you work, its who you work with that will – more... make or break your day. I do my best to be a team player and get along with everyone and I have made a lot of friends working there. The hardest part of the job is when you cannot solve a problem during busy peak hours and the most enjoyable part of this job is compliments from customers. – less

Crew Member (Former Employee), London, ENGJuly 14, 2014
Pros: great staff, easy job, hours fly by
Cons: poor management
McDonald's was a fast paced job, which I enjoy. Hours were supposed to be very flexible which was actually my only problem, since the store I worked for did not once try and help me work around school. The training was very well done and after 2 training days, I was ready to go and fully do the job.

Mediocre workplace
Crew Trainer (Former Employee), Mississauga, OnJuly 11, 2014
Pros: 50% off all mcdonalds in canada
Cons: not enough hours
As a crew trainer I can work all 3 positions on the floor: window, kitchen, and drive thru. So depending on what station im at my day varies. Typically i would be taking orders or running on drive thru or i would be preparing orders in the kitchen. I loved my co-wokers, because i had been there for all of high school i was really good friends with everyone. – more... The job really wasn't that hard but i had worked there for more than 3 years so i might have just been used to it. I really enjoyed being around people all the time when I'm at work, it made me feel like i was a part of a team. – less

Everyday at McDonald's seems to be a new day for me. McDonald's has mold me to become more of a Leader than a worker. Everything in McDonald's seems to be fun, having a lot of good and energetic co-workers and I can't say anything negative about it.

Great starting position for first-time Job Seekers
Kitchen Staff (Former Employee), Québec City, QCJuly 8, 2014
Pros: great people
Cons: too many "new" employees, can never really keep a steady workflow.
Evening to Over-Night shift.
I would arrive 30mins before my shift began to make sure the duties of the current shift were completed before they were dismissed because this would mean all their duties would spill onto me and increase my workload.
Most nights I ran the kitchen alone, very difficult on holiday nights and friday nights where tons of orders – more... come in and I am the only one there to knock them out one by one, most nights there are generous and kind Managers that come in and help with the Kitchen orders to take half the load off me.
During the slow periods I'm usually cleaning the Kitchen or knocking out the daily to-do list.
The last thing I usually do is wash all the trays and equipment used for the night in order to clean and ensure the Kitchen is ready for the overnight staff.
The most enjoyable part of the job was most definitely the people, the people working upfront and the managers, all very friendly and great company on quiet lonely nights and the very busy ones. probably the only thing that kept me working there for a year. – less
