When you go to McDonald's?
When you go to McDonald's what do you feel about the workers?
What do you see and think?
What do you see and think?
- Generally speaking; unless they are young students who are doing it for some extra money while they are going to school, I feel bad for them. I don't think most of them are very happy about what they are doing for a living nor do most of them appear very healthy. Their lives are probably somewhat difficult because they aren't making much money (unless they are the owner or perhaps the general manager).01
- Being a FORMER food service worker, I have mixed feelings. I feel like telling them (younger workers in particular) "GET OUT WHILE YOU CAN!!!!!!!!!!!!! YOU CAN DO BETTER THAN THIS!!!!!"
The hours and stress were ridiculous for me since I was a manager most of the time I worked in restaurants. The reason it was so stressful was most of the time I was the only person working there with any ounce of common sense or education for that matter.
I still can't help but notice or point out what is going wrong in the operation of the restaurant and sort of compare what I would be doing differently. Like, "Why isn't someone cleaning the damn tables out here?!!"
I'm now finishing school while working in manufacturing. I have less stress and I don't have to worry about being the only responsible person in the building...30
- i think their lives could be perfectly good. just because they work at mcdonalds doesnt mean they dont have a life. i think their feelings could be hurt because the way people treat them but it may just be an extra job for them... it doesnt mean its their life.10
- Well if their teens then its okay, but if your over 20, you gotta do something about it, like work in a movie theater or something. They did bad in school, they probably gotta a sucky life, and they seem like they hate their job and life. just telling u what i truly think, but its sad.01
- i worked at mcdonald's when i was in high school, just for extra money, i actually liked it i worked the hole, (first window) then i worked at mcdonald's again when i was in college just for extra money
i always try to be nice to everyone so i'm nice to the workers, mostly they just need money like everyone else.10
- i feel bad for them w/ minimum wage, but for some of the workers, it was their choice to work their01
- I feel sorry for them alright with the minimum wage salaries. 10% of the blame has to go to the workers themselves for signing up to work at McDonalds in the first place, whereas the 90% of the blame has to go to the front office management and the society that encourages people to pick on the workers whenever they please.
Most of the workers at McDonalds don't have it easy going for them in their lives, maybe the foul treatment of the customers could get to them at times, but kudos to some for remaining professional amidst all the tough times.00
- The very last time I went to McDonalds and the reason I will never go back is because when I looked at the staff I decided they are not going to be touching things that will be going in my mouth.00
- i in loads of situations get parfaits, apple pie, hen nuggets, reg. hamburger w/ ketchup, and medium fries. (no longer all of sudden) xD also the shamrock shake, notwithstanding that's constrained in worry-free words in the course of the month of St. Patty's Day (so April or march?) the milkshakes there are sturdy too, and the hen sandwich.00
- I worked in a McDonalds, as a cleaner. I remember when I was being hired, the manager was extremely upset when he discovered that I would be earning almost $2 an hour more than he was making and he said "I've been trapped in this hellhole for over three years and you come in and day one you make more than me, that's b------t"!!! and he was very upset. I came in after the restaurant closed (to perform my cleaning duties) and left as it was opening; so often I would talk to the counter clerks performing their jobs and none of them were happy, about McDonald's rules and working conditions at that particular store (could be different at others?)
Most of them, were well educated (two were still plugging away at University) they were mothers/fathers and they were abused, almost all the time;if not by the customers, then by management, either in the store or higher up. They were discouraged from taking breaks and were told if they were late twice in a year they would be fired. They were young and old (some retired, but needing a few extra bucks to survive). They were good, smart, hard working people who needed a job and did their jobs really well. I admired them for being as professional as they were, amongst the dreadful working conditions (one guy mentioned Union and was fired the next morning) dealing with abusive, violent customers and an uncaring and non-responsive management. When I go into a McDonald's now, I see the same type of people, who appear to be going through the same scenario's that reoccurred again and again and again at the store I worked at. Society is unfair to these individuals and comedy writers now use "would you like fries with that"? as a standard of the type of job that only underachievers who are lazy or uneducated, end up working at. This negative stereotype does not come with respect or an acknowledgment of the role that these hard working girls/boys, men/women play out at McDonald's everyday. I hope through education and realization, that the general public grow to understand and are sensitive to these workers' realities, working at McDonald's. I know they are educated and that they have lives (same needs and wants as everyone else) that should be filled with respect and dignity and that they have feelings and that society should not take those feelings for granted and should not believe it is ok to dump on these people while they are making their food orders, either in person at the counter or over the intercom system at a drive through McDonald's. This is what I see and what I think. It is through these experiences that has taught me to be humble and to try, as best as I am able, to be empathetic (place myself in the shoes of the other person) and to understand and be sensitive to the fact that workers at McDonalds do not have it easy, are extremely underpaid (when you look at the profits that McDonald's make worldwide) have little or no benefits and have their employment standards violated all the time by their managers and their respective head office. When you take all of this into account, it is amazing that these people, can speak to you with a smile and with kind words.
I give it to all those who work at McDonald's as I know it isn't easy and could certainly be alot more rewarding. This is what I see and what I think. Thanks for asking this important question and it should probably be asked alot more, with respect to most employers and in different backgrounds in work and in different fields. I appreciate the opportunity to let everyone know, that this is a good group of people and they should be treated accordingly. Thanks.20
