Working with the company McDonald’s is an everyday challenge! Not only physically but mentally as well. Working with people can be very difficult at times especially when encountering an upset customer. On another note, there are days customers turn a frown upside down which is very rewarding. I’d like people, customers to understand McDonald’s is a very challenging job and it has its pros and cons to providing costumer service- job task may seem easy but they are definitely not. Satisfaction is McDonald’s goal, but I would also like McDonald’s to improve in certain areas such as putting their employees first as well. We get humiliated at time by costumers and there should be better accommodations to employees for tolerating such treatment.

Working at Mcdonalds builds work ethic. In my opinion, you may be new to a job, it's great for this to be your first job. It builds a sense of a member of a team and how you all must work as one. That works later on in life at other jobs, you want to be a viable piece in a team. What i like about working at Mcdonald's is of course not having to pay for your lunch. Also, what i did enjoy about working here is seeing new customers and even old customers. You build a simple bond with customers and it's a joy seeing them come in. What i would like to see change is the company having more training for new employees, managers taking charge of their team, and everything not being dependent on just one person!
Working at Mcdonald's was something I said i would never do. Now, as a Sophmore in college, Mcdonald's has given me SO many opportunities. Not only are they very flexible with my schedule, but they also are very understanding and allow me to study in my down time. Another great thing about my company is they offer $2500 a YEAR in tuition assistance. On top of the $2500, they offer 50 cents for every hour worked towards tuition. For example, if I work 1000 hours, they put $500 towards my education!
Mcdonald's has been more than an employer to me. They have opened up so many doors for me and have done all they can to help me succeed in life!
