What is the company culture like at McDonald's? Help others make critical decisions by letting them know what it’s like to work here!

Suggestions for improvement

  • Better management that actually care about there employees. Owner and director of operations support when you tell them a problem. Less hostile work environment!

What I like about the company

Flexible work schedule, free meals which we wont be getting anymore soon and the company provides us with a family outing every year at knights action park.

What I dislike about the company

The environment is very hostile and the managers are very disrespectful to the employees. The managers also are not held accountable for the problems they cause. The owner is unaware of some of things that are happening in his company. Owner is also disregards what employees tell him because he thinks were complaining.

Company Culture

Complete lack of communication between managers, low pay for employees and managers

Teamwork

I end up running all over to support people because the job roles aren't well defined.

Internal Communication

No communication whatsoever.

Gender Equality

Pushes old mentality that boys lift heavy things and girls talk to people and smile.

Attitude towards older colleagues

Hasn't given a pay raise to someone who has been there 18 years and knows every role

Career Development

Managers only make $0.75 more than crew.

Overall compensation for your work

I can barely pay my rent

Office / Work Environment

Hectic at best. Managers yell conflicting things at you or when they get mad.

Environmental Friendliness

Plastic waste like crazy.

Job Security

You get sick without a doctors note and you lose your job

Handicapped Accessibility

No options for disabled to work.

Inclusive / Diverse

I'm transgender and get "sir'd" constantly. I've given up correcting people

Suggestions for improvement

  • Other than burn the place down, pay raises, having more people on during rushes, etc would help.

What I like about the company

Nothing

What I dislike about the company

Getting yelled at for throwing away old fries and for waiting in 1st window without a task because cars aren't moving forward (slow pace getting food out because of the lack of support)
