    Don’t fall for their trick! I had my orientation meeting two days before and let me say they act all professional and nice as if McDonald’s only had good things coming for us. Everything people say about the job is true! I say “Fuck this job” whenever managers rush me, knowing I am new to the job and still need time to get used to how things work. Overall, study and get a better job that doesn’t require you to work like how fast-food restaurants do! Yes, you will have to start somewhere but do not evoke your whole life to it.

    Worked at one next to my house. Work the night shift its usually pretty chill. Mine was all stoners I could come and go basically whenever I wanted for my hours and smoke weed on shift and fuck around. The place pretty much runs itself you just keep shit moving and go home.

    That sounds like you have had a lot of bad experiences. However its really different in Australia, at least at the few stores I've worked at (sometimes i get put on a shift at a different store if someone needs it filled). The people and the managers are all super friendly and theres just an amazing work dynamic. I tend to work more late night shifts, and its amazing because we aren't as busy, so we just put on some music and jam out while cleaning. I've found, in comparison to when i worked at subway, the training and management is very professional and more than adequate. Not sure about american stores, but if you want to work at Maccas in Australia, 10/10 recommend.

    I work at McDonald’s and we don’t get anything free. On our break we get what you call a “crew meal” and it cuts down the meal price only 50% and it’s gotta be under $8 any other time it’s full price

    I've been working at McDonald's for a month (in NZ) as a trainee. it's stressful & definitely puts a lot of pressure on you. But here, it's not that bad. It gets really busy but we work together. I've been on both the till & grill side but not because I'm ugly or beautiful but because all employees need to be trained on EVERYTHING. I promise you, working in a nz restaurant isnt bad. Your colleagues literally become your family :) my managers are bitches but they're loving bitches lol. They're pretty lenient when it comes to their employees, just as long as we follow the resteraunt policy's we should be fine. I've also heard in some countries minimum wage is only 9.55 or less but our starting wage in new Zealand is 16.50 an hour. Manager wages are around 30.45 an hour

    When I worked there the till side/grill side thing was based on gender. I was always put on till or drive thru just because I’m female and I hated it. I much preferred kitchen to avoid horrible customers. I’ve also had burgers lobbed at me, and once someone even started lobbing parts of the condiment stand at us because they couldn’t buy a hamburger during breakfast! One positive thing is that most people who work there are young and everyone is a similar age. I made friends at McDonald’s with other students who were working there whilst at uni. Leaving on time rarely happened there was always ‘unexpected’ rushes, but shifts ended during busy periods so they should have scheduled overlapping shifts.

    Fuck working at Mc D's I command MORE respect as an employee & person when working for ANY company...
    Laws need to be made for any company who puts the customer this far ahead of their employee's.. The customer ISNT always right, when they are rude or dangerous they lose that respect & that right... give them their money back and send them out with a company wide BAN if needed!
    I wont buy again from Mc D's...

    That customer who threw that food at you should have been arrested. The manager should have called the cops and reported it. Employees shouldn't have to deal with that kind of behavior. I would have created an uproar and sued MacDonald's for not protecting me from such an assault.

    Couldn’t agree with you less, I’ve been working at McDonald’s for about 3 months and it might be that my one is good but I’ve worked the drive through, fries and front and not once have I had a customer do anything as bad as that, the worst is that someone said “can these fries be fucking filled please”; hardly bad. And working fries I haven’t got any burns. Finally my managers are quality, letting us go on time every shift, and if anything happens they will give us another uniform to keep, and if we’re working drive thru then we always get given a coat

    It's not actually that bad.. First of all i am working at McDonalds for 4 months (i am 17 years old).. First day was the hardest. I was a person with social anxiety and didn't know how to communicate with so much people at once. But days went by and i got used to it, and i can say now, McDonald's has helped me a lot with my anxiety problems. If you are planning on working there, just listen to what managers say. If a co-worker is bothering you, just do not give a fuck really... And try not to eat all the food there :)

    You left out the gender discrimination. Where I live you will NEVER be served by a male unless it's the franchise owner or a manager. Females are customer facing, males are on the grill. Men get to do all the hard work, bare all the scars, etc, women just hand out the food and take cash. It makes me wish all this wishy washy gender fluid bullshit existed back when I was a kid I'd have claimed I was a tranny and got out of burning myself to death in hades up the back.

    Bro ive been working a mcdonalds for around about a year and it doesnt so bad as yours, i think thats just something to do with your workplace. I still have to stay back a bit after shifts and deal with customers since im on “till side” or “front counter” as we call it here in australia but its not so bad for us.. we get 20% off whenever and 50% off when we have a shift and if we get called in or stay back then we get a free meal!

    Honestly one of the worst places to work.
    1. Managers only care about targets
    2. Managers have their favourites
    3. Inspectors and owners are patronising and treat you like shit
    4. Difficult to get managers to approve time off even if you’re on a 0 hour contract
    5. If it gets busy when you’re about to leave, you have to stay on no matter what

    I worked at McDonalds 15 years ago. I remember a time where we couldn't sell Sausage Egg McMuffins without egg cause it was some stupid thing with the sale. Without egg was more expensive. I saw a customer at the 2nd drive thru window take the egg off the sandwich and chuck it right at the girls face who was handing out food. I remember we had to relieve her for awhile as she couldn't stop crying.
    I also remember one shift where it was April Fools day and these teenagers came through my line at drive thru. I was ready to take their order as it was face to face and not taken through a speaker. The kid in the passenger side pulled out a gun and pointed it at me and I just kinda froze and stared at them. A moment later the kid yelled April Fools and they drove off. I remember telling my manager about what happened and they called the police and when I asked her if I was going to be interviewed she told me to shut up and just get on drive thru and continue to take orders. That was the moment I realized my manager didn't give a damn about me. It was a good life lesson as most managers don't care.

      The hardest part is keeping up with the orders if your location has a lot of customers. You can make anything hard if you have to do it fast enough, the job itself is not hard at all.

  • Ajazzylemon

    I remember the time when I was taking orders at the payment window on a headset and I got called racist.
    Essentially, the guy making the order happened to be french (which I honestly had no clue about) but as it was there was the beeping of chicken batch and dryers from the hand washing sinks and this guy is mumbling his order. What he wanted was chicken nuggets but what I heard was ‘chicken baguettes’ and I was so confused so I repeated back what I fought he said questionably. You do hear A LOT of weird shit from customers.
    To which the lady next to him took so much offence and angrily told me I was the scum of the earth after telling me McDonalds doesn’t do baguettes. (Funny actually she asked for mayo as a sauce and anyone who is familiar with the menu knows UK Maccies don’t do packets of mayo.) I argued with her and told her I didn’t intend offend her or the man but she weren’t having it. She wanted a manager at the payment window when she got there. I can’t believe I still finished taking her order, I should’ve refused. We weren’t really taught how to deal with this in a proper way.
    After I told a manager what was going on, I was sent to the front counter to do another job (and that was for the rest of my shift and after my break ) whilst that woman was dealt with. She was not happy. Neither was my manager happy with me. She made me feel bad without collecting my side of it first. It wasn’t until after that foul women had gone with 40 nuggets and 5 Galaxy cookies (free of charge because of me) did my manager care about my side of it all and how I actually felt about it. I nearly broke into full on tears in the office ffs.
    Also the women called my manager who was black, a racist too. It goes to show that in some circumstances if you kick up that much of a fuss and throw around accusations, you can have people like putty in your hands and you’ll probably get whatever the fuck you want.
    I still have my job there now though. I work nights so I have to deal with drunks doing all sorts ffs.

    I was a manger in America and work for two years. The teenager had no work ethics or even care about the job. You are correct bout the smell and I have a couple of scars from gloves melting on my hand. Ya I agree with not leaving on time, as they say 2 o’clock doesn’t mean you get off at two. I was pretty good looking southern gentleman and have a voice that can convince you to buy anything. And I had a soda thrown and salads and fries poured on the counter. It ain’t worth the time and stress of working there.
