Why did you leave your job at McDonald's?

46 answers

  • No trade union recognition badly treated by supervisory staff.

  • To be actually have a life and be finally feel happiness. To not be talked to and treated like less than something you've stepped in.

  • Poor management, was ill with a neurological flu and stomach bug and they were harassing me to come in and consistently questioning my home life and what the real reason was for why I was taking a day off. I then questioned his knowledge of the regulations then he claimed I threatened him. And sent me a screenshot accidently with a following message '' I will reach her discipline and regulations '' when himself was tryna make me come in with an upset stomach.

    During shifts send me on break and hour into my shift and tell me to suck up the other 6/7 when I got back.

    Repetitive and unrecognised and unappreciated as a working student after college every day. And pressured and harassed and spoken to like trash u left.

    You little are just a piece in there shifts, nothing more.

  • Technically illegal working hours. Awful, rude management, understaffing and awfully low pay. Tasks were repetitive and boring and nothing you did was actually productive, completely mind numbing

  • After 1 year and 6 months of working here it gets boring, repetitive and tiring. Managers/ BMs don't have a care in the world about you. You're just another bolt in the clock. There's always new people coming so it's hard to enjoy the job/socialize. And it shows how replacable you are. I also lived 4 miles away from the I worked at store and as a student I took the bus. It was miserable. Management would take forever to accept days off online, so I would call them instead. Pay is also terrible. Avoid this place. You can do better!

  • Hired me and then left me hanging for about two weeks. Never got my uniform or schedule. No matter how much I called or bugged the manager I never got any solid information and it just felt like they were avoiding me at all cost. This week I was allegedly meant to work, but how is one supposed to work without a uniform or the days/hours they're supposed to do? Don't even get me started on the multiple websites you have to use and the 3 different passwords you're supposed to remember just to access important information. You can't even make them all the same password so I changed my passwords probably 10 times by now. Their employee site is broken and outdated. Their pay isn't the best especially if you're a student who lives alone. Their discounts are useless (5% of an item is not going to help anyone). If you just want to work without the added hassle, find a different company to work under. It could just be my store's franchise owner, the store's management or this is just how McDonald's as a whole works. Either way the managers were super disorganised when it comes to newcomers, no one was willing to give straight answers, their websites are broken most days and they don't seem to care much either.

  • Still currently working there , leaving soon. I am always given breaks an hour after I have just started when at my age legally I can’t go on a break 3 hours into shift. Managers never let us go on time always have to get more stock for front or clean shop floor. Most managers who work at Dorchester McDonalds are swearing , have no respect towards staff and overall rude management

  • I let Ronald McDonald down by dropping a customer's order. I couldn't face the shame of this, so I removed my McDonalds uniform, went home without saying a word and now I just sit in my attic all day having nightmares about Ronald.

  • Was made to feel worthless so decided to escape and management was childish when I said I was leaving

  • The managers made me feel worthless due to the lack of respect and horrible lack of understanding when I had to change my personal life forced to to change my availability. I still work there but hopefully not for long.
