Crew Member (Current Employee) – Dublin – 13 June 2019
Would highly recommend to anyone. The work is hard as it is often very busy so can be very stressful at times but you get used to it after a while. Work is sometimes boring,tiring, disgusting but the great coworkers make it worthwhile. Great atmosphere between staff and management most of the time. Extremely flexible and accommodating providing you give them warning in advance, great if you're in school or college. Lots of opportunity to progress if you put in hard work.
Free lunches, flexible, never boring, opportunity to advance, great coworkers

Despite what is said in the welcome meeting you will never get your rota two weeks in advance ever. Pay is frequently wrong. Extremely unprofessional management. Some lovely staff however the culture of bullying is disheartening. It's hard to be secure in a job with three month contracts.

Fast paced, good people to work with and work for, It's still a minimum wage job with not a lot of benefits, it also pays every fortnight which i didnt like but you were constantly moving around stations so you don't get bored
MCDONALD'S CREW MEMBER (Former Employee) – Dublin – 17 May 2019
I really enjoyed working there, good crew, flexible shifts, fun environment, the managers were so nice and patient, good pay as it was a franchisee, obviusly you must be an hard working person because it's busy, that's why you can't be bored

Mc Donald's is a great place to work. Its a good pace to start of working. The staff make you feel welcome and take good care of you. There is always a good humour in the work place. The salary is good. The hardest part of the job is working under pressure, you have to make sure you are taking peoples orders properly etc you want you're customers to be happy with no problems. The most enjoyable part of the job is that the crew gets along and everyone helps each other out.

McDonalds was a great place to work. The management were very supportive and helpful. In terms of hours and shifts, they were very flexible and always happy to try and work with their staff to give them hours which suited them.

Enjoyable place to work however I feel like the pay isn't enough for the work you have to do as management. Everyone is nice and easy to get on with. Opportunity to work up the career pathis exceptional.

1st Assistant Manager (Current Employee) – Sligo Town, County Sligo – 30 May 2016
It is a truly great place to work, during my 16 years I have learned skills that will benefit me through out my life & career. I have been part of the management team for over 14 years & part of the senior management team for well over 10 years. I enjoy the face to face contact with people weather its my co-workers or the customers that we serve on a daily basis, I enjoy getting to know the regulars & seeing them as more then just another customer. Of course there is difficult days or times but you deal with them as they happen & move on. It's all apart of the learning process & even after 16 years I'm still learning because no two days are the same.

Working in McDonalds was an all round learning experience for me. Management was excellent and very helpful. I learned new skills in relation to customer service and working partnerships also. I made lots of friends from my time working in McDonalds. My reason for leaving was that afterr one year the work does become second nature and hence boring...I felt a bit like a robot at times. I have nothing bad to say otherwise about working there.
