Hard to work with
Cashier (Current Employee), Bolton, ONMay 1, 2016
Pros: Some of the crew are amazing and are great friends and people
Cons: Head office does not care about you and harrase you, store owner is the worst.
Used to be privately owned. Switched to head office was terrible and the owners like to work you as hard as they can. They don't care about you.

Great Experience
Shift Manager (Current Employee), Brampton, ONMay 1, 2016
Pros: Free food
Cons: insufficient staff
Great learning experience. Learnt to deal with unsatisfied customers, manage the shift, operate p.o.s. system and enter data/reports. I wasn't always given enough staff to operate the store to the expectations of my superiors. They expected a bit much of us shift managers without giving us the appropriate equipment or staff to do so.

cashier (Current Employee), Ajax, ONMay 1, 2016
Pros: 50% discount
Cons: long hours, very busy
During my one year and a half at McDonald, I've learned alot of things, I've learned how to cope with mean and rude costumers, to be patient, and I've also learned how to be a responsible person when having a job! The hardest part of my job is to keep up with the rush hours. Running back and forth can be pretty hectic and tiring.

Good place to work while going to school.
Cashier/Customer Service/Cook (Current Employee), Airdrie, ABApril 28, 2016
Pros: 50% off food
Cons: Closes' late
It is a fast paced work place. Managers are kind and flexible with your schedule, and school. You'll always have the opportunity to upgrade your position. A typical day at work is me being a cashier, and helping the customers, or running their food. Some days I am in the back making the food. Management teach me new things every day to help me move up in my position. The hardest part of the job would have to be dealing with the customers when something has gone wrong in a way that won't upset them more. The most enjoyable part of the job is making friends at work.

Fast-paced and fun place to work
Cashier (Former Employee), Gander, NLApril 27, 2016
I really loved working at McDonalds.

The only reason I left was to focus on my school and education at Keyin College.

Management really cared for their employees and tried their hardest to accommodate everybody's needs. Hours were flexible and fit any schedule.

Co-workers were really great to work with.

The hardest part of the job was the rude customers that we dealt with.

The most enjoyable part of the job was to work with friends, and the enjoyable customers.

Productive and fun work place
Team Leader (Former Employee), Winnipeg, MBApril 27, 2016
Pros: Free party yearly
Cons: Hard work
It is fun working at Mcdonald's because mostly young and students are working there. The foods are good and Mcdonald's offers yearly or christmas bonus. Also requires no experience.Though it is a very tough job to do according to the salary. Its hard to manage daily expences with that pay. But it is a good place to start off as people can get good experience to work with customers and get to know new cultures.

Fun yet challenging workplace with decent wages
Cashier during rush hour and overnight shifts (Former Employee), Ajax, ONApril 27, 2016
Pros: Free meal, Nice co-workers
Cons: Overnights
I took orders and made change for customers as necessary, I would make the hot drinks and set out a tray for the food. When the food was finished cooking i would give it to the customer. I also ran food out to the parking lot, dealt with unhappy customers, and worked multiple overnight shifts.

Crew Trainer (Current Employee), Hamilton, ONApril 27, 2016
McDonalds is a great place for students to go to work part time and earn some cash. For full time, it's harder to come by because of all the morning permanent staff and no room for full time in the afternoon. Overall the rest of the time it is an amazing place to work with some great co-workers and managers.

Guest Experience Leader (Former Employee), Windsor, ONApril 27, 2016
Pros: Worked with great people
Cons: Some nasty customers
McDonald's most definitely helped mold the individual that I am today. The job taught me responsibility, customer service skills, resilience but most importantly, not only how to fully satisfy a customer but how to make their entire day!
