Fun co-workers, less fun paychecks
Crew Trainer (Current Employee) –  Nanaimo, BCMay 30, 2016
The work, although stressful at times, is made fun and lively by the people you work with. It's especially good for young people as it's mostly populated by high school students. The most enjoyable part is certainly the bonds you make with people, but the customers can be very testing and harsh.
Pros
Fun co-workers, flexible hours
Cons
bad pay, stressful enviroment

Discounts in food and free meal

Great first job

Pros
Discounts on food, can socialize while you work
Cons
Minimum wage, long hours

Crew Member (Former Employee) –  Mississauga, ONMay 29, 2016
A typical day would include lobby or kitchen shift depending on the schedule.Some of the skills I've learned are keeping up with the restaurant demand according to the time of the day,communication skills due to customer interaction and managing time.

The people are great but the management and scheduling needs a bit of work.
Crew Member (Current Employee) –  Calgary, ABMay 29, 2016
A typical day depends on what day of the week it is and what the weather is like. For example, on days where it's cold, coffee sales go through the roof and on hot days, it's ice cream. Sometimes it's so slow that people go home early, some days its so busy that you've got line up after line up and you're doing a 4 person job on you're own. The hardest part of the job is having to work with managers that use their power to abuse you and boss you around while they stand in the corner and pretend to look busy. The most enjoyable part of the job are managers that respect and care for you and treat you like an equal and not a pack mule. They let you laugh and talk as long as you're still doing your job. Aside from the days that make you want to walk out, the people you work with make the suffering worth while. It's definitely a good first job to help build character and train your skills.
Pros
Free meals for a job well done, music is allowed after the dinner rush during the night shifts, we're allowed to socialize with the guests and create a more personal and comfortable atmosphere.
Cons
Favouritism makes it occasionally unfair to advance in the workplace.

Bad
McDonald's Crew Trainer (Current Employee) –  St. John's, NLMay 29, 2016
Managers do not care about the employees, they are number one. Even if you are a student you will be required to work certain shifts that sometimes do not cooperate with school

Crew member (Current Employee) –  Barrie, ONMay 29, 2016
Working at McDonald's has it's perks, but there is also a great amount of negatives to working there.
The hours were great, and even though I was part time, I was still getting many hours, and earning a good amount of cash, but the way we were treated was not what an acceptable form of communication, between Employee and Manager.
Pros
50% off you meals
Cons
Strange hours

Typical first job
Customer service (Current Employee) –  GTA, ONMay 28, 2016
Dealing with customers can be invigorating and infuriating. But that is the name of the game. You learn how to work hard and smart. They do instill good values in younger people working. Everyone has to start somewhere and McDonalds is a good launchpad to start at.
Pros
Food and food hours
Cons
Hot and sometimes annoying
