All about working in mcdonalds
Crew Trainer (Former Employee) –  Lewisham17 January 2019
Worked there for about a year and 6 months, good place but can be very stressful sometimes. The managers are friendly and the coworkers are great. But a down side is that customers are very rude.
Pros
Free ounch
Cons
Rude customers

Crew Trainer McDonalds (Former Employee) –  Swindon, Wiltshire15 January 2019
working at mcdonalds is good you learn a lot of skills and you learn how to deal with the customers and complaints. however, it does take up a lot of your social time, on shift you can be understaffed so it makes everyone stressed especially at peak times so you have to put more hard work in. overall, the environment is a good place to work in, you make so many new friends
Pros
free lunch
Cons
under staffed

Crew Trainer (Former Employee) –  Dundee9 January 2019
Great flexibility if studying. Always got extra if wanted them and they gave me my availability when at uni. The jobs what it is, there is always a good laugh on shift so that is good and you do learn basic kitchen, hygiene etc.

It pays - but it's not worth the hassle.
Crew Trainer (Former Employee) –  Middlesbrough7 January 2019
Management is incompetent, work environment is disgusting, you'll usually get abuse from customers.

On the other hand, you will make good friends and it does offer a good work/life balance. But the stress in unsurpassed, and it's not hard to get paid more money doing less work.
Pros
Easy to make friends, free lunches
Cons
Demeaning, Demoralising, Long Hours, Come home smelling of oil, Can earn more doing less

Depends a lot on your management
Crew Trainer (Current Employee) –  St. Austell6 January 2019
Your typical day can be either amazing or absolutely horrible depending on your management and mood of the staff. If no one is putting any effort in, most people will follow suit.
Pros
Free food on your breaks
Cons
Not the best hours

Horrible place to work for
Crew Trainer (Former Employee) –  Burntwood2 January 2019
Hated working here, yes wage is slightly above average but no where near covers the amount of work you put in. Management in both McDonald's I have worked at have been shocking with no consideration for crew members. They sit in the office whilst you are on your feet for 9+hours a day. Would not recommend working for this company.

Normal day would consist of being stressed beyond belief with management on your back about cleaning whilst you have a screen full of orders to fulfill and pending orders and serving customers who take you for a joke and expect michelin chef quality from under - trained and overworked staff.

Perks are;

* Above minimum wage
* Able to build relationships with team members
* Flexible shifts
* Online training for development
* Able to progress easily within the career

Crew Trainer (Former Employee) –  Wolverhampton, West Midlands12 December 2018
started this job as soon as I left school. this job helped me gain customer service skills, how to handle money, knowing how to deal with any issues that may arise. my job role was to cook food, keep good hygiene standards up in the work place. I also helped train new employees on the job to take the pressure off the managers.
Pros
free lunches, friendly place to work
Cons
not enough hours.

you get paid every two weeks and flexibility
Crew Trainer (Part time) (Current Employee) –  Catford11 December 2018
day to day is a very stressful work environment you need to have a tick skin to be able to deal with customers. the job can became quite repetitive and you will not always feel treated equally. the mentality to assume to survive is to go do your job cover your responsability and go home.
Pros
flexibility
Cons
underpaid overworked

McDonald's enabled me to develop my customer service skills.
It taught me how to deal with complaints and handle the public. There are a lot of opportunities to be promoted also.

Busy place to work
CREW TRAINER (Former Employee) –  London, Greater London3 December 2018
This job is a good, quick way to earn money. The hours can be very long and this can make the job very tiring. You often have to multi-task more than one job at a time.

CREW TRAINER (Current Employee) –  Binley and Willenhall1 December 2018
Good place to work if you don't have any plans outside of work otherwise you'd only know your shifts for next week a couple of days beforehand so you wouldn't really have enough time to plan stuff with friends/family. They are not reliable for shifts so if you are desperate for money this is not the job for you.

Good crew bad management
crew trainer (Current Employee) –  Basingstoke, Hampshire19 November 2018
A normal day in work has me take over a shift managers shift when i come in because they want a break despite me only being a crew trainer, i'd end up having to look after the store for half hour at a time at least 5 times throughout each shift. The crew would work well for me and then start messing around when the managers where back because a lot of them will stand around shouting and screaming at everyone to sort it out and move faster when things are going bad rather than try and re-arrange people to make the shift work which would often be left to someone like me who isn't paid for it. The crew would always be cheering each other up it's like a tight knit family there, the shift managers just need to learn how to manage.
Pros
Free lunch, good staff
Cons
Bad management, stressful shifts when they should be smooth, long hours

Easy, fun, and character building
Crew Trainer (Former Employee) –  Manchester, Greater Manchester5 November 2018
Work that’s easy to pick up and easy to progress in if you want to. Good online system. Good benefits with free uniforms, free meals, discount cards, and discounts on different brands. Usually nice and friendly people to talk to and work with. Occasionally not the case, but that can be true for any job.
Understaffed on overnights but is often more rewarding for people who like to be always hands on. Like any retail job, customers are the main concern, but managers are usually always around if you need them for something and protocol is clear on any issue.
Pros
Free meals, discounts on lots of brands, nice people, simple and repetitive work, decent pay
Cons
Customers, long hours
