Former Employee - Mcdonalds Crew Member

I worked at McDonald's full-time

Pros

Very friendly management structure here

Cons

Didnt allow me to dance

Former Employee - Sales Assistant

I worked at next part-time for less than a year

Pros

Online shift system. Could take more hours if needed. Friendly management staff

Cons

Sometimes given short notice of extension of shift. But overall this was always an option and could work favourably
