Crew Trainer/ Team Leader (Current Employee) – St. Albert, AB – 7 August 2018
Enjoyable. I have worked there for almost a year and have moved my way up to a crew trainer and eventually a team leader and swing manager. It was a great starting place for me to learn customer service and dealing with more adults and solving problems on my own.
Crew Trainer (Former Employee) – Vancouver, BC – 2 August 2018
I was a crew trainer. I trained new hires. I was also the cashier majority of the time and was sometimes at the back making customers orders. I learned a lot from this job, including leadership, I loved training new hires.
Crew Trainer (Former Employee) – Ottawa, ON – 1 August 2018
The customers are terrible and staff constantly calls in sick or just doesn't show up. Management doesn't allow enough staff to run the store properly so everyone has to work way harder and be treated poorly by customers because of this. But you can meet a lot of nice people that work there. It's fast paced, relatively easy, and very flexible schedules to accommodate school hours or another job usually. Free pop, coffee/tea and half off food is a good perk.
Crew Trainer (Current Employee) – Orillia, ON – 29 July 2018
I have been at McDonald's for a few years now and I can honestly say it's such an emotionally draining place. The management is little to no help with many situations, you get treated like absolute garbage, and people have changed my hour availability on me on multiple occasions. Not satisfied with this place, and would not recommend for anybody.
Crew trainer (Former Employee) – Brampton, ON – 28 July 2018
I enjoyed my time at mcdonalds going from crew, to a crew trainer, to a manager within 2 years. I would recommend going here if you enjoy a fast pace environment and you are familiar with the menu as well.
The people are great. But due to some of the management and scheduling, it makes the job hard to keep up with and up to proper standards.
Crew Trainer (Former Employee) – Cobourg, ON – 23 July 2018
The people are great. But due to some of the management and scheduling, it makes the job hard to keep up with and up to proper standards. The team generally works well together. New team members could either get great training or next to none at all depending on how staffing is.
Cashier and Crew Trainer (Former Employee) – Stittsville, ON – 23 July 2018
Working at McDonalds (depending on which section of the store you're in) allows you to learn a variety of skills. As a cashier you work with customer and food delivery, keeping the quality and times at its best. Working in the kitchen you learn to time manage and learn to handle pressure of the time but keeping quality. I worked both their positions and trained others to remain calm and friends in stressful situations. Over all the people are amazing to work with and are always helpful.
Learning life skills that can be cared to other jobs
Crew Trainer (Former Employee) – Burnaby, BC – 19 July 2018
Mcdonalds was a great experience and i learned a lot about the food industry, however i have had a few jobs here and there but i haven't found anything that fits with me well yet. However it is the summer and i am looking for a full to part time job with lots of hours!
Bar none, this employer is the best option for University students in Winnipeg and Brandon. The extended store hours mean that there are plenty of shifts available to work around class times. There are many stores in Winnipeg, making it easy to pick up additional shifts on a casual basis. Time off for exams and study is rarely an issue, and the busiest times of the year are during the summer and wonder holiday seasons when students are free to pick up plenty of additional shifts. Great management advancement opportunities exist for those so inclined
fun working with my co-workers. we are like family at work. we follow and respect each and everyone. i learned a lot of things that helps my lifestyle
Cashier/ Crew Trainer/ Team Leader (Former Employee) – Leader, SK – 11 July 2018
this is my first ever job. I was shy at the first place. I feel intimidated to approach people. but as time goes by, i learned how to speak out, this made my confidence boost even more. i learned how to deal with different types of people everyday. i become more confident in everything i do. i practiced and improved my french speaking. suddenly i fell in love on what im doing. honestly, working at fast food restaurant is kind of tiring and exhausted but at the end of the day, when you knew that you always do your best at work, it feels relieved when you get home. i enjoyed surrounding myself with my funny co-workers. I feel welcomed and appreciated with the people that i worked right now. i am hoping to find those qualities if ever you hired me as your employee. thank you.
every work environment is different however McDonald's has a tendency to attract cranky and rude people. if you are quick to anger or overly emotional I would not recommend looking for employment at McDonald's.
the hours are very flexible and at no point did I feel trapped by my job, the management isn't invasive at all and separating your personal life from work is easy.
overall listing stressful as a con for any workplace would be simply stating the obvious, it's not perfect but I would go back if given the opportunity.
