  • A positive of Mcdonalds is that due to the amount of people they employ time off is easy to come by. As fair as holidays you have to give notice that is the same length as your holiday. For example if your going on a week holiday you do not have to tell them untill a week before.

  • Very easy to get time off, I often book days off with only a week prior and they are almost always approved.

  • You have to apply for holiday on the timetable website. it will often get approved, however, I would always take my time off as unpaid leave and then save the money that would build up in your holiday pay for either a big holiday or to take out at another time.

  • So easy to get time off if you’re part time! To be fair most people get the time off they request just make sure it’s requested in plenty of time (at least two weeks)

  • Very flexible working hours

  • In order to take time off, it’s vital you do this online on the website “Ourlounge” this therefore consists of options and you choose how long you will be taking off.

  • I think that probably depends a lot on how much work you are doing and how heavily the team are relying on you. I'm sure for part time and casual it would be quite easy but if the restaurant is depending on you it wouldn't be too easy. It's all about teamwork on this one I suppose.

  • Not hard at all you take off when u want usually

  • Not hard just give enough notice

  • You put it on the system and a manager approves it for you, as long as you give a weeks notice it should be fine.
