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

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

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

Busy, hardest Part was customers

Busy spot. You get what you put in to it. Hardest part was dealing with rude customers. Learned time management and de-escalation skills. OK as a part time job

Lavoro ripetitivo ma ben retribuito

Il lavoro in se non è particolarmente stimolante anche se è ben retribuito e ci sono molte possibilità di progressione di carriera.

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

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

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

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.

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

Good place to work when not busy

I enjoy working there all the staff are friends cus we're all just young people working minimum wage job can be stressful when bust and customers cam be really rude sometimes mostly it's the people working there that help get through a tough day the management is hit or miss with some managers being fine and nice to work for others can be overly bossy a variety of different jobs to do keep the day for being too tedious and nothing is too physically demanding overall a good place to work

Fast paced, lots of opportunities and a fun place to work.

Shift work (breakfast/lunch/evening/night).I learned a lot of food safety/prep protocols.Management at this McDonalds are incredible, hard working and honourable people. The job was always fast paced but had incredible staff who kept it fun.

Pros

Free lunch and drinks when required.

Cons

night shift was difficult to clean after and get home from without a car.

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

Nice people but stressful

a stressful place to work, most managers go on a power trip, even the crew trainers think they own the place. hours are also ridiculous some of the time
