Poor management and rudeness overall would be my reason, I'm leaving soon.

Too stressful.
Managers constantly shouting at you to get rid of the queue as fast as possible, customers having a go at you because their food wasn't ready immediately. If they have to wait in a queue or wait a few minutes for their food you will hear the line "I thought it was supposed to be fast food".
People forget that fast food employees have lives outside of work, that we're not robots and none of us want to work there, we don't get paid enough for the amount of verbal abuse we get from customers and staff. If you make a slight mistake someone will have a go at you then you're expected to put the fake smile back on immediately and serve the next customer who will probably be just as rude.

Left due to management not appreciating the work we all do and spoken down to by one of the managers. One of the managers always shouts and co workers do not like the way we got treated.Not enough appreciation just shouting and made to feel worthless by certain manager I would definitely go back if the issue was solved.
