McDonald's Employee Review

make great friends

McDonalds is a good job if you are in college as they are understanding with hours you can work one day a week and after college hours basically whatever days suit you. while I worked there I felt as if it was sexist as in the men only worked in kitchen and not many men knew how to work anywhere else and very few girls worked in kitchen. the girls get trained everywhere very few get trained in kitchen so we can work on any section but we all mainly wanted to work in kitchen but the boys always got first pick as its not a womens job i guess. i felt as if the men got away with a lot more then the girls when it came to being late, messing,lazy and not working hard enough. some managers I had were amazing and so kind and understanding others not so much and some didnt deserve to be. the power got to some of their heads. I had one manager that cared so much about everyone and even their outside work life if anything was wrong he would always try and make work easier for you. the pay is minimum wage and a extra 10c i think on a Sunday. Should be more but better than nothing. over all its not that bad you need to be thick skinned as some customers and managers are rude you cant let it get to your heart. You do make great life long friends there that make the day better when it wasnt busy we had great chats with all the staff on that shift great laughs and learned a lot about different cultures as there is a lot of different nationalities working there.

Under-Qualified management staff with poor decision making processes

The managers are very bias to out of friend co workers and judge based off of looks or personality on how to treat youThe work load is simply too much whilst managers disrupt you

I’m on anti depression medication

They brought in more inexperienced staff when we just needed more good, experienced staff. I felt guilt tripped in taking more hours and over praised into staying
