Lovely environment, great management

Management and colleagues were all friendly and helpful, lots of opportunity to progress, they were quite flexible with hours, managers are very approachable to talk to about any concerns

Hard work but decent managers

The work is hard but rarely stressful . Managers will usually take your side if a customer is being unreasonable.Breaks aren’t paid but you do get a food allowance .Perfect for a college student who needs flexibility as they are for the main part due to their large workers base.Pay varies from store to store so make sure you look into this before applying .Its a job with varied responsibilities which is great for training .Best of luck

Horrible management

Only work if you need money. Bad management, do not give you paid break unless you ask for it, so keep in mind to never forgot what you are entitled to. Got thrown into rush hour with one hour training in the frier and just expect you do to just fine. Not to mention about the customers being rude, cleaning the toilet is a nightmare.

Pros

Free lunch I guess…

Cons

Poor management

You make a lot of new friends, great starting job, but not a stable job, at least for me

You make a lot of friends, as many people come and go. There are many stations so you don't really get bored, my managers were very chill and good at their job

Pros

Free lunch, but very limited in my opinion

Cons

Shifts are very random, hours could be cut which lead to an unlivable wage

Share your experience to help others

Stressful, overworked

if you just mentally checkout at the start of the shift youll get by fine. managers can be good or terrible, it really depends. high turnover rate so coworkers will change every few months

Not paid enough for how demanding it is

Good job, free lunch at your break, friendly atmosphere. Fair progression opportunities. Tiring work though, and considering it is a multinational company, minimum wage is quite low for the amount of work you do.

Pros

Free lunch, they are flexible with you

Cons

Tiring work for low pay, disorganised at times

Great first job

It is a great first job to have while studying in college. I worked only on weekends when I did not have classes. There will be rush hours with long queues but there will also be quiet times with almost no clients.

Pros

Free lunch

Cons

Minimum pay, rude customers

Fast paced

It’s a good job for young people and students, the staff were mostly friendly . Management was okay, not paid enough for the amount of work you’re expected to do, very fast paced and stressful job but at times enjoyable especially when the customers and management recognised the hard work.

Pros

Free lunch, friendly staff

Cons

Rude customers, minimum pay

Fast Paced But Enjoyable

Working here was fast paced and a bit stressful at times but for the most part it was good fun. Everyone has an equal chance of advancing to higher roles. Your colleagues also play a big part while working. Once everyone plays their part, the work is a breeze. Morning shifts are usually quiet hectic but the closing shifts are way more relaxed. I would recommend working here.

Pros

Free Lunch, Employee Discount Card

Cons

Can be stressful, Customers can be rude

Heart Breaking and soul crushing

The customers will appear in your nightmares abusing and berating you while management will also appear asking you to work overtime and turn your 8 hour shift into a 10 hour and then a 12 hour and then a 16 hour. Do mot work here it will break you.

Crew member mcdonalds

Nobody cares about you, mad early starts or really late night finishing, get shouted at for being too slow and threatened with training slips. Could get your break an hour after you coming in

Pros

Free lunch, see schedule 2 weeks in advance

Stressful

The crew are usually nice and people are friendly however the expectations from the managment is unrealistic.Having said that some managers were lovely and always willing to help however others not so much.It really depends who you are working with on that specific day and what managers are on shift.It’s a good starting job but the environment can be toxic and stressful and job itself can be unrewarding.

Pros

Free lunches

Cons

toxic environment

Professional Artmosphere and People Centered

The place is nice. I made a lot of good friends and I'm wasn't stressed. The reason I left isn't farfetched, I had to be a major key player than being in the bench. The work place is Neat, no stench.
