All politics and the real workers who so all the work don't get enough recognition. No benefits and not enough salary increase for the amount of responsibilities you have as a Manager.
Short breaks or none, no benefits
I honestly really liked working at McDonald’s. I was able to get promoted to crew trainer after six months and then to management after another six. I worked every available shift during my time there at some point but closing was the most fun. Being a manager was a lot of fun too, taking care of the balancing the safe, deposits, counting drawers, and petty cash encouraged me to move on to being a bank teller after leaving; something I never thought about prior to McDonald’s.
Free lunch for management, half off for crew, flexible hours and time off (one week paid for management)
Rude customers sometimes, very busy, not the best pay even for management
Low pay, inflexible scheduling, no benefits, no sick leave. Numerous times I told management I could not work overnight shifts, only to be continuously scheduled for those shifts. I was also written up for staying home when I was sick.
Some tuition assistance
Low pay, no benefits, inflexible scheduling

Easy enough job, but lacks the staff resources to get the job done. It’s a balance between hitting labour and hitting targets. Which if you get easily stressed can be problematic
Few food. Flexible for crew members.
Can only take 3 weeks holiday when schools are off. Bad if you are a parent and a manager.
Pay was advertised as $12-$14 an hour. The most we were given was $11.50 an hour. Schedules were often messy and management treated the minors poorly. The location I worked at was entirely run by 16-18 year olds while the managers sat in the back office on their phones. When asking for help (we were often busy and understaffed), managers would simply nod and tell you to figure it out yourself. Easily the worst job I have ever had.
Mcdonald’s in my opinion is a good job for teenagers that are looking for a first job, usually coworkers are the same age in high school or college. I met lots of new people around the same age as me and made new friends. Very location dependent, some stores have good ownership and managers or bad ownership/management. I enjoyed my time at Mcdonald’s but to some ownership you’re just one of many workers that will come and go.
Great first job to gain experience, free food
ownership/management can be either decent or bad
I will say this is a high school job for high schoolers and is a good start job but it's not something to make a career out of. There's a lot of High school drama and they say they are flexible but they will force you to work your birthday and work while sick, I also had to work during my child's birthday due to the store being understaffed
Free small lunch
Bad healthcare, not flexible, and poor management
