McDonald's Employee Review

A good start but shouldn’t be permanent

I’ve been here for almost 2 years. It’s a good first job but you gotta be able to handle stress. I’m a CT/Barista & you will have to work with and serve the worst people in the entire planet. Sometimes it’s a good shift but do not stay here for the long run. Hustle & leave once you’re financially stable. BUT rostering is good. Flexible for teenagers.

Fun and good experience

a good place to work as a student. very flexible hours and very chill if it's quiet. but some managers are very rude to the staff. they just keep telling people what to do but they themselves just want to do nothing.

Pros

discount or free meals. travel fees

Cons

bad managers

Making do with bad management

Training given was bare minimum and was also made to feel like a burden. But once you get the hang of it, everyday is a breeze. Upper management will only come in during one of those health checks where they'll just spend more time yelling at you and making your job harder than helping out. Lower management really tries their best and are usually chill as long as you do a good job. The thing that will really make or break your experience is whether your co-workers are good or not.

Bad pay and long hours

Pay is minimum wage, with small increases if you are a Crew trainer. hours can be 10 or so into the night. You get 50% off the favourite range and a free small soft drink. Not worth it at all.

Pros

Flexible shifts

Cons

Hours and pay
