Friendly and beneficial place to work
Drive Thru Cashier (Current Employee), Woodbridge, ONApril 13, 2016
Working at McDonald's has given me a new appreciation for those working the public sector. A a lot of my co-workers work here part time, like myself, and have to balance work, school, and life at the same time. The environment is very fast paced and productive, but there are also many initiatives taken by management to help you continue doing this work. The hardest part of the job is the early hours, and the extra hours that you pick you pick up sometimes. The most enjoyable part of the job is to work together as a team to attempt to provide the best customer service possible.

Fun but very fast-paced
Cashier and Cook (Current Employee), Surrey, BCApril 12, 2016
McDonald's is very very fast-paced. It will also teach you how to multi-task and how to be patient. The hardest part of the job is to be patient and to be nice towards a costumer who is very rude.

Crew Member (Current Employee), Ajax, ONApril 12, 2016
A typical day working at McDonalds' is very busy but manageable. I have learned plenty of customer service skills that will be essential to me in life. Co-workers and Management are very friendly and welcoming and has great communication and teamwork. The hardest part of the job is making sure everything is done correctly during the rushes & the most enjoyable part of the job is keeping people satisfied while having a good day at work.

Cashier (Former Employee), Sault-Sainte-Marie, ONApril 12, 2016
You arrive there in uniform and work your butt off getting one thing and that is customer satisfaction. A hard day at work is keeping up with the volume of orders they have on a daily basis

Productive workplace with energetic coworkers
Crew Member (Current Employee), Chelmsford OntarioApril 11, 2016
Pros: Discounted meals. Flexibility
Enjoy working with the current employees at my location. Typical day includes constant stocking products or completing orders taken. I've learned that not everyone will perform up to standards and will have to take responsibility and complete their tasks. Most difficult is working with coworkers who do not do a thing, the job becomes much more difficult. The easiest part is working with people who understand what to do throughout the day and who are knowledgeable.

Productive and fun environment at McDonald's
Cashier (Current Employee), Guelph, ONApril 11, 2016
Pros: Good hours, strong communication, great training practices
Cons: Inflexible hours at times
I genuinely enjoy the training process, and crew involvement and collaboration at this job. McDonald's truly cares for each and everyone of their employees, and is always encouraging success in and outside the workplace. A typical day at work was stressful and busy due to the business of each location, but the crew would always be in a good mind set and work through problems together. My management always pushed the employees to strive for success and gave goals each shift to try and obtain. The co-workers have always been friendly, accepting and generally hard working. The hardest part of the job would be the busy hours in the day, but we as a crew would always push through the stressful parts. The most enjoyable part of the job was collaborating with all the different people who work along side you, and obtaining success when working together opposed to being hostile or unsupportive of one another.
