Fast paced work environment with horrible managment staff

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Standard high school job that was stressful and fast-paced. Management was not empathetic or understanding towards the staff and had expectations for its casual workers to work on a full-time basis. It was difficult to maintain a good balance between life and work as managers would pressure staff into taking more hours, even during HSC, assignment, and exam periods. The salary was low. The only pro of this job is good training/hospitality experience and lots of hours.

A great first job…

Perfect first job for kids trying to get into the workplace… otherwise not the best unless you want to climb the ranks, even then it’s very difficult.

Pros

Flexible shifts

Cons

Short breaks, stressful

Not great

They only roster and train people that they like. Store is dirty and slow. Do not recommend. Very judgey and you only get shifts if you are 14 years old

Wouldn’t recommend

The head manager during this time I worked there was verbally abusive to everyone in the workplace. They don’t properly train you either. They expect you to know everything the day you get hired. Unwelcoming workplace

Good

It was really good working at McDonald’s for my first job. McDonald’s was something I wasn’t interested in but needed a job. The people there where okay but didn’t get along with anyone.

Pretty Good

Good for a first job, nice employees, fast paced environment, great to build up your customer service confidence, some rude customers but nothing out of the norm, pretty average and good first job.

Pros

fun environment

Cons

night shifts

Eh

I only worked at Maccas for a couple of months cause I needed extra money because my first job wasn't paying me enough/giving me enough shifts. Management needs to train their staff more before throwing them in on the drive-through on their 3rd shift. Employees were fine.

Hated

It was not a good job, everyone was rude and did not care for employees. The place was hot and oily and the shifts were long and crammed with work with no breaks even for long shifts if it was rush.

It could’ve been better

not enough hours on some occasions, working with people were very easy to get a long with, on busy times it was very stressful but it was a good experience
Was this review helpful?

too much work

the management is completely a disaster, everyone just been assigned randomly in everyday work, whatever you done whether is good or not, the manager seems not happy to everyone at all time.

Destroyed my mental health

Working here as a teenager was a horrible experience. Managers were bullies and there was no support for bad experiences with customers. Pushed to up sell and when people would get angry there would be no care.

okay for first job

As usual the fast food industry can be stressful at times and if it weren’t for the people I was working with I would’ve quit straight away because the management only got worse

Worst First Job

Don’t work at McDonalds as a first job. That place should be a last resort for anyone. It is such a mentally draining job, it’s ridiculous. That’s if you get any shifts at all. And the managers have their favourites. They all do.

Pros

Discounts

Cons

Everything except the discounts

stressful

i use to work at McDonald's and it wasn't the greatest experience. when you first start they have some care about you, the longer you work there, the less they actually care and it becomes a toxic environment. they wont give you breaks unless you ask or you how breaching over for a break. poor management skills.

Pros

short shifts

Cons

toxic environment, unfriendly, unprofessional

If you've got time to lean then you have time to clean.

Great place for young people to work Thier first jobs and also a great workplace for all ages, the experience depends on the individuals attitude and the environment but regardless of that the culture and the workplace systems are great for anyone to experience.

Pros

Half price lunch, always busy, young management

Cons

Half price lunch, always busy, young management

So stressful as a first job

Didn’t receive very good training, Some managers and rm’s were super rude and made you feel so guilty if you couldn’t stay back for longer. Understaffed, overworked and not worth the low $$.
