Flexible hours, bad restaurant
Cashier, Kitchen, Customer Service (Former Employee) – Verdun, QC – 26 August 2017
At McDonald's Verdun, working there would often mean working with low staff, despite the high level of customers per day. Most of the equipment is old and broken or nearing said point. Working every day requires working around equipment that threatens to fall apart, or simply not using the machine at all. Changing schedules or managing vacation days was a nightmare, as they are unable to properly hire enough people to work the hours needed, and they do not shift the required amount of employees for each shift, so you will be at a disadvantage every time. They have a hard time changing schedules and often won't give you what you want or need until it inconveniences you with problems such as schedule mix-ups and shifts where you can't work. They're also now enforcing any employee over 18 MUST work overnights once every 4 or 6 weeks.
Bad management of scheduling and workplace environment
