I don't work at McDonalds but there is a saying that people who work in the City might end up flipping burgers and working at McDonalds when the economy gets really bad.

If I had to choose, I would be a crew member. I like to interact with customers. The role can also be a challenge when someone is impatient and orders are late.

You know, it's better to have some work experience than none be it McDonalds or something else. If you're very good at selling yourself, you can sell your experience at McDonalds to demonstrate the qualities you can bring to other jobs.

Some of the things people have said in this thread are actually quite insulting...

I really like working in McDonald's and find the flexibility of the work perfect for my lifestyle! Maybe it's not for you - but I'm fine having a timetable which works AROUND my social life, rather than cutting it off

Also it's weird how all my mates looked down on me 4 working at McD's, then now they cant find any summer jobs ANYWHERE theyre lookin 2 me 2 put in a gd word 4 them :rolleyes:

& No, I'm not greasy lol. Only thing I hate is the uniform, and I hate it with passion.

I'd have all my meals there if they weren't so unhealthy.

As for employment, I'll be happy with them when they reply to my application.
They didn't reply to my application (although I am glad they haven't!)

I went about a month ago for a sneaky burger and the uniforms looked really nice - remember when it was polo shirts etc? - now they're all smart and jazzy. That's got to be a benefit
Is the uniform not a polo-shirt and baseball cap at all stores?? :confused:

Or am I missing out on a nicer uniform? lol

I'd rather die than work in McDonald's. My friend works there and it seems crap. It's not that well paid, her managers are incompetant and because she's on "flexible shifts", she can never plan anything more than a week in advance. Plus, she stinks of grease when she comes out of work, and the health and safety checks there are non existant.

yup i think were missing out. i just have apolo shirt and baseball cap. I just dont like a couple of my managers but wverything else is ok a job is a job at the end of the day but the pay is really bad.

a Crew memeber can be anything fro working in the kitchen on the front counter or the lobby from what i udnerstand at the store i work in. to tell the truth all the myts about Mcdonald's food i have found non existant however, i have gotten sick of the food and usually dont eat my free lunch but instead go out and buy something else.

Many jobs have down points just like you described! The pay, bad managers and hours of work just have to be accepted + some restaurants are ultimately better than others - but none of those things are a prob for me! And I must say that smelling like grease at the end of a shift (which I dont), is much better than smelling of off dairy products (working on Fresh Foods @ Waitrose)!!!!!

Pretty good at my McDs actually, and shud b nationally too - with annual Health & Safety competency checks + regular team meetings regarding H&S..... obv cant speak for other stores tho

I have never worked there but my old chem teacher said that his son really liked working there. Got free minibus transport there and back if he was working a really late shift and a whole load of other benefits such as free eye tests (not sure why on that one, possibly if he worked on the tills). Also he found it really flexible and easy to manage around his uni studies.
I wouldnt work there though. Simply because i wouldnt want to work with fast food, not because i have a grudge against McDonald's.

It really can't be that difficult getting a job at McDs surely - half the time, the person at the counter can't even speak English! :confused:

Nah, I've had other jobs and they've at least had good points to outweigh the bad, but I can't see a single good thing about working for McDonald's.
