Q: What is it like working at McDonald's Corporation?

Floor Supervisor in Livermore:
"They're OKAY..."
The benefits in my store is that you get flexible schedule, 25% off food when off, $10 allowance when working.

General Manager, Restaurant in Russellville:
Pros: I enjoy helping customers have a great experience and helping my employees have a great work experience.
Cons: I am on call 24/7, even during my vacation time. I don't get days off. 95% of my time at home is spent with my phone in my hand. I have 3 kids that I rarely get to spend time with.

Cook, Fast Food in Maryville:
Cons: Not enough people and they expect to much.

Kitchen Manager, Restaurant in Madison:
"McDonald's insight."
Pros: I like working for McDonald's cause of the fast-paced atmosphere and how everyone is like one big family. The pay is very nice for a kid my age who is also going to college full-time. Flexible scheduling, extremely nice front-office management and stock-options are my favorites.
Cons: The stress level for a job with this sort of pay just plain old sucks. Some nights I question why I even took my job. Customers can be very rude and being cussed at for other peoples mistakes isn't fun at all.

Restaurant Manager in Valdosta:

"Can be enjoyable with the right workers."
Pros: There can be satisfaction in every order made right. The occasional polite customer can give the job at least some meaning.
