              I worked at McDonald's part-time for more than 2 years

              Pros

              Coworkers are usually pretty nice and friendly. Managers are friendly and accommodating to scheduling conflicts as long as you put a sincere effort into your work. Availability is relatively flexible and there are always people looking to pick up shifts if you need one gone. Training is pretty detailed and helpful for getting used to the job.

              Cons

              Customers can really suck sometimes and if you work the front counter or drive thru you'll meet some whackjobs. Sometimes people just don't feel like showing up for shifts and it leaves you understaffed and stressed.

              Advice to Management

              Try to stay calm when it gets busy. When a manager gets stressed it affects how the crew behaves as well.
