run away

management were bullies and were too touchy with underage staff members, expected to know how to do orders without being trained in. no warnings before being let go. hires everyone under 18 so he doesn't have to pay fair wages. free lunches on shifts but bullied for taking them if youre anyway chubby,


its local

Stressful but straightforward

It just was not for me. Fast paced stressful environment where you basically need 4 extra hands to do all the work to a high standard in time. The co-workers were fine and I got on with a good few of them but there was constant pressure from managers watching you working. Id recommend it for someone who enjoys high pace and isn't a very anxious person.

I really enjoyed my time working with mcdonalds. My team was very helpful, friendly and outgoing. As a crew member I was treated very well, my managers were understanding and very easy to approach, i felt welcomed to the team and settled into my role very easily.

Fun Workplace

A typical day at work when it's busy is very stressing, but these are the most enjoyable shifts. I learned to play as a part of the team, and learned to work individually also. Unfortunatly the management is very poor.

Exiting place to work whether it is a part time or full-time. There are always chance to get noticed by doing hard work and get recognition. Great bonuses as for crew and management team. Excellent opportunities for promotions.
