Fun workplace

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Favourite part about working here was the people, they made the shift fly by. It was very stressful at times and the management can be a bit iffy, we were very understaffed so you would be on multiple stations at once with. One manager in particular was absolutely useless, would never help during a rush, they would just hide away in the office and come out when it died down

Pros

Free lunches

Cons

Unpredictable shifts

Extremely stressful and unappreciated work

If you like being taken advantage of and not having your complaints listened to, then this is the workplace for you. Don't be expecting to have fun if you apply to work here

Nice

Nice place to work. All managers are lovely and the opportunity to advance is very high. Very accommodating with specific hours/days that you can work.

Not a bad place to work overall.

You will feel pressure sometimes, but depending on the restaurant that you will feel more pressure or less and the management will help you.It's a fast-paced environment that can be overwhelming sometimes.The best part is the people that you meet there

Horrible place to work

Honestly you'd be better off on the dole than working for those power hungry killjoys. The treatment you receive is poor, they treat you terribly when you start and try to make out that your job at McDonald's is more important than your mental well-being. The only way to rise up in the company is to have a brown nose.

Pros

Free lunch

Cons

Long hours, poor management, no air con

Fast job and competitive

If you are hard worker, you will be promoted to be a better position, great management team, but the staff don't like to work hard and is lots of students.

Pros

Free food for staff

Cons

Long shift

Its a good first job

It's a good place to start, progession is slow unless you are pally with management, good team work between crew, higher ups arnt very supportive during day to day activities. Your shift can be changed at short notice and you are pretty much told to deal with it mainly because staff are young and wont argue it.

Pros

Free lunch

Cons

Short notice for schedule changes.

Meeting new people but poor management

Unfortunately, certain managers are difficult to deal with and I found the more I wanted to grow in the company, the more I felt unmotivated to do so.

Badly run franchise from both owner and manager

5cent above minimum wage, slow with schedules sometimes 3 days notice. Management is always right and your always wrong. No organisation or routine or cleanliness.

Productive and fun

A typical day at mcdonalds is busy most of the time and sometimes it got stressfull but it helped me be more confident with talking with other people and helped me work better with a team. The hardest part of the job was the schedules, they were never done properly and were always all over the place. The most enjoyable part of the job was meeting new people and helping them become part of the team and making them feel comfortable.

Productive, fast paced and fun

It is a very fast -paced environment, where team work is necessary. It can also be a fun environment at times. McDonalds is a very diverse place to work.

Awful management

Staff are treated poorly on a daily basis by management. Managers are overly aggressive and are allowed get away with it. There is a high staff turnover, but the franchisee won't look into why this is happening, they don't care about their staff at all, they only care about replacing them. There are no staff bonuses at Christmas time, nothing to acknowledge hard work, for Christmas all of the staff received a box of sweets.

Pros

If your interested in working over 40hrs a week this is the place for you

Cons

Bad management/ and Franchisee

Nice job for students

I had a great time working at McDonald's. Its nice place to work as the work involved is very hands-on and not so difficult either. You work alongside many crews and get a good experience of teamwork and how to you can improve it. The timetable is great as in my place I was allowed to choose the hours I wanted so great for students as a part-time job.

Good for students

Good job for students who are looking for a flexible schedule. Would never, ever create a career here. Management is terrible and do not know how to control a team.

Pros

Free lunches

Cons

Terrible, horrendous managment

The best job I ever had

When we opened our store, no one really had any idea what we were doing. In building the store together from the ground, we became the closest team I have ever had the pleasure of being a part of. I am still looking for something that will come close to the fantastic time I had working here. It can be a very challenging job, and it is not always easy dealing with people, but I found it incredibly rewarding.
