McDonald's Employee Review

Busy and stressful

Working at McDonald’s is what everyone would expect it to be like. Good for a first time job but staying there for a long time will drive you crazy. Customers are rude and entitled and the management micro manages. Would not recommend this job, The stress especially when understaffed is traumatic. It has a high turnover rate for a reason.

Understaffed

Bad management always understaffed and the managers always felt lazy and passed on work to anyone even if they're busy. It takes more than 2.5 hours to get a single break

Pros

Discount on food

Cons

Very busy

Stressful

This job i recommend ONLY for high school students, first timers etc. Its extremely easy to get a job here but i wouldnt recommend it for someone whos looking to move up further in their job. Its very stressful as any other fast food job but if youre looking for experience or something to put on your cv then this job is for you. But even then, i wouldnt recommend this as a first time job. The managers are always stressed out from trying to meet expectations for drive through, its hot, customers are rude.

Pros

50% first break meals, 10% discount (when not working), free drinks

Cons

Stressful, mean customers, extremely hot, rude managers/co-workers

Pretty chill

Good job if you are at school. Pay is good and management is good. However the workplace culture can sometimes be extremely toxic and stressful. Can be a very good experience sometimes if working with mates or if you get along with co-workers.

Pros

Good pay, Decent Management, Fairly good hours

Cons

Extremely toxic environment
