Productive and fun work environment

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Overall it was a great place to work, made great friends there. You will do well if you're a hard worker and a team worker, but will bring the team down as a whole if you're not . Good training involved for a first time job. Hours can be unpredictable and not the best if your a student.


Free lunches, transportation, employee discount, friendly staff


Long hours, high staff turnover

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


free lunch under a tenner


customer called me a slur. I’m autistic, do the maths.

Very stressful

Mangement was absolutely awful they are so disrespectful, crazy long hours , working in heat with no ac if you like to be shouted at by customers be my guest as you can never keep the customers at McDonald’s happy or the delivery drivers

Okay place to work

It was okay to work for just really stressful and I found that I was always stressed out. Customers are really rude to you for no reason. The staff are lovely though and it’s an easy job to get the hang of.

Not paid fairly for the amount of work that is done managers expect too much from one person it's impossible you are expected to drop everything your doing and put the company first and several hours without breaks

Horrible hours

I told them I wanted to work part time due to college, so they stuck me on full time on the evening shift. I had to work until 1am, sometimes 2am on college nights. Honestly awful place to work as they clearly don't listen to their employees.


Long hours

It’s okay

My time working at McDonalds was okay, the managers were very strict but the other Crew Members were easy to get along with. The job is stressful and fast paced but you learn to deal with that.


Free lunch, Good for young people


Short breaks Stressful

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.

Needlessly stressful

The environment is harder than most people would think. Fellow staff members were great but management was difficult to deal with. just feels like the job is more stress than its worth

Best job ever

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

fun workplace

its above all a fun place to work. There I learnt how the organizacion of a team has to be to work properly. As everything was perfectly ensambled in a way that they give the customer a fast and good service. The hardest part of the job was the shifts as I use to do days or nights, was I didnt mind at that time but in a lorg term is not the best.


not responsibilities and easy job
