Crew Trainer (Former Employee), Brantford, Ontario – May 24, 2015
Pros: Employee discounts, great atmosphere, lots of room for advancement.
Cons: Sometimes dirty work, stressful and fast paced, hard work.
Typically at work I would be placed on either production, counter or drive through. All of which involved using strong leadership skills, communication skills and having a positive attitude. As a crew trainer I was given the opportunity to train others on either kitchen or counter and was responsible for making sure they could properly do their job and had help whenever required. Mcdonalds offered a great amount of room for growth and encouraged employees to do their best with great incentives. Management was always helpful and encouraging and it often felt like you were part of a family. The hardest part of the job was often dealing with the consequences of an error made (ie. angry management or customers). Because you work as part of a team if one person misunderstands or make a mistake it reflects poorly on all of you. The most enjoyable part of the job is creating a positive experience for customers, the family-like atmosphere and working as part of a team to create golden moments!
