Not the best place to work in

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
McDonald’s was a hectic place. The job was both mentally and physically draining. The managers weren’t always the best. Things got very difficult when it got busy.

Pros

Free lunch

Cons

Hard work

Productive

I started McDonald’s just before summer , it was my first job and I really enjoyed working in the environment, I met life-long friends and experienced a lot working for this store , my job required a lot of patience and respect to fellow co workers and customers , I picked up a lot of skills working for McDonald’s and I am thankful for their time and support .

Fun and tough workplace

It's a fun and competitive workplace, hours fly in as always busy free food is a plus but the manager can be very autocratic overall I do recommend this

Pros

Lunches

Cons

Low pay

Very stressful and short staffed

It can be a fun place to work at because of the people you work with, but the amount of work does not match the amount of people you have working. It’s usually an understaffed and stressful environment whenever it gets busy.

youthful environment

The best is that there is a good enviroment, everyone is nice. But, most difficult time is the rush hours, so you need to be confident with your skills

Fun place to work

Fun workplace with great staff. Pay isn’t the best but fine for starting off first job etc. Good for college students, flexible hours that you can pick yourself, easy to book holidays, employee discount and free meals are great

Wouldn't recommend

There's no work life balance you're expected to be available 24/7. You're never really appreciated and constantly expected to be able to do 100 jobs at once. It's mentally draining and kills your mental health.

A good place to work around family and college

Mcdonalds is a very fast paced and sometimes stressful environment, with a lack of staffing a problem, training is touch and go . If your in college or have a young family then this is an ideal job

Worst place I worked

The managers are very mean and indecent towards the staff. The coworkers are mostly teenagers and feels like being in a highschool again with all the bullies. Sorry can't recommend

annoying managers are snakes

everyone in there secretly hate each other ,you get kept in against your will , you have to do pointless cleaning jobs so that the owners can show off how "clean of a workplace it is" when in fact it's in an absolute state

Pros

free lunch

Cons

I could go on forever

Challenging

Can be fast paced at times. But money is good in comparison to other fast food restaurants. Good if your a student and need a bit of pocket money on the side.

Fun place to work

You will definitely make friends that's a good thing. Management does what they can to help, everyone can feel overwhelmed many times but to be very honest I thought it was worth it.

Underpaid, stressful, but make great friendships working here

You won’t be paid well here even after taking promotions. It’s not worth the hassle of get promoted, too much responsibility for so little pay increase

Pros

Free lunch, friendly staff

Cons

Awful work/life balance, awful pay

Stressful and overworked

Work is very stressful . Very little benefits. Not allowed anything you want for lunch. Some managers and staff were bullies. Flexible and free lunch
Was this review helpful?

Very stressful and unpleasant job.

Positive: salary, free meal for break, good contract, flexible hours. Negative: if managers dislike you, be ready to do the worst and the dirtiest job all the time. Rude customers and unfriendly surrounding.
