Crew Member (Former Employee), PhilippinesJuly 30, 2014
Pros: free foods
Cons: lack of proper training
A typical day at work was fast. I learned to be work in a team and be independent,if necessary. The management was okay. All of my co-workers are easy to get along with. The hardest part of the job was when you put on a certain station and you are not properly trained. The most enjoyable part of the job was we have summer outing once a year.

Safe workplace that recognizes good workers
Cashier/ Service Crew (Current Employee), Scarborough, ONJuly 30, 2014
Pros: flexible hours
Cons: cutting hours
A typical day at work would be busy as usual. When I start work, I would begin by stocking up on the sauces and cups, as well as clean each station. I would see and serve the regular customers and have small talk with them which I enjoyed. I would joke around with the coworkers from time to time and we would all help out one another whenever we need – more... it like getting one's order to the customer because he/she is busy with another customer. The management team is balanced; there are strict managers and fun, easy-going managers. Hardest job would be just dealing with really rude customers but the managers always have the workers back. They would recognize my initiatives and praise me for it. The most enjoyable part of the job would be just creating new relationships with customers. It makes me feel I am just doing more than my job in the workplace. – less

Working at McDonalds
Customer Care Specialist (Current Employee), mississauga, onJuly 28, 2014
Pros: discounted lunch, fun crew outings
Cons: smelling like food
Working at McDonalds I learned how to provide efficient service. I learned how to deal with situations and customers in a respectable manner. The best part is the crew because I am a people person and I enjoying making laugh and allowing them to feel comfortable in their environment. The hardest part is keeping your patience when you have disrespectful – more... customers or impatient ones. – less

very unfair management
Cashier, Drive-thru, Kitchen (Former Employee), Marystown NLJuly 26, 2014
Pros: 50% discount
Cons: shifts were always too long, or way to short
a typical day at work would be show up, find a manager that would help you get a till so you could count your cash, sign in, and start. Once started depending on where I was in the store that day I would have different jobs. I found that all employees were NOT treated fair at all. Some employees were "favored." The hardest part of my job was fixing – more... orders that were sent out wrong, and dealing with annoyed customers. The most enjoyable part of my job, was helping the kids and seeing the smiles on their face when I made a connection with them by asking what they wanted or by handing them their food. – less

My first real job.
General Staff (Former Employee), 11007 23 Ave NW Edmonton, ABJuly 24, 2014
Pros: half price burgers
Cons: the smell
I worked at Mc Donalds when I was fifteen years old. I worked for about 6 months. I worked on the grill and prepared burgers, wraps, and sandwiches. I worked 3-6 hours shifts. I learned valuable team work skills. I got along with the management. I did not talk much because I am shy but that does not mean I am not a hard worker. The most enjoyable part – more... of work was actually seeing the customers faces when the burgers were done. There was many things that I enjoyed one for instants was working. It was a way to occupy my time. I enjoyed the schedule and having people around me almost every time I worked. – less

Great way to gain experience.
Cashier/Cook (Former Employee), Ottawa, ONJuly 22, 2014
Pros: discount on all food items, free uniforms, paid training
Cons: customers
When working at Mcdonald's, you learn so many basic transferable skills. Right from day one, you learn how to time manage, how to properly deal with customers, how to handle stressful situations, and basic housekeeping. The only downside I really had was a place like this can only take you so far. I know that I do not want to be here when I am in my – more... thirties or older. – less

Well a typical day at work at mcdonalds consist of a fast pased inviroment prepairing burgers for customers,when we got new burgers we had to learn how to make them the right way.
Loved working in a team inviroment everyone worked well together and help eachother out when needed.
The hardest part of this job was trying to rember all the products that – more... had to be made correctly.
The most enjoyble part of my job here was interacting with the other staff and the customers and trying to help out a customer with a complant and make them leave happy. – less

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
