rude ignorant owner!

I try to order a burger and get second free with coupon at drive thru. I waited then asked how much it would cost. The girl says she didn't know and I would have to wait until I got to the window. While there, was told the one Burger, (Big Extra was $6.63. I said that seemed expensive for one burger, and could have gotten a full meal for that. The girl agreed. she was having trouble figuring out how to modify the register, then the owner comes up freaking out at the young girl, leaves, then comes back to the window freaking out at me, yelling never to come thru there again changing the order at the last minute, and a few other things. then walked away. I left with out anything obviously. If the girl could have told me the price at the order station I would not have changed it, and the only change was no cheese and bacon. This owner is very rude, with no sense of curiosity for his staff or his customers. I can assure you I will never eat at that restaurant again. Just frustrated with people like this owner. (Un real)!

bad service again & again...

On 02nd January 2007 at about 18:45 hrs, I visited McDonald's family restaurant, Himalaya Mall, Gurukul road, Ahmedabad-380052 (ph: [protected], [protected]) and had purchased 5 McAloo Tikkies for Rs 100/- (invoice no. [protected]). A staff member wearing apron was giving Aloo Tikki to other one to get it sandwiched using a typical spoon. While passing such things I noticed at least one piece fell down (on the tiled floor!) and immediately it was put in the collection basket back and got mixed along with other tikkies. So your food is not hygienic. But at restaurants that too like McDonald's, cleanliness is highly expected. Then I called the manager and told this. He was defending as though nothing much happened. In India, we are eating the food when it falls on the floor, where we walk with shoes/chappals! In many popular restaurants, such might happen but in closed kitchen where customers cannot see such things. Either you keep a camera in the serving area or cover/curtain that area where you dirty service boys do work and deliver items and later nicely come out via machine-tray to reach customers. What is the point in wearing gloves when you serve the items that fall on the floor?

I know now you would send me a standard ready-made reply as the following: "Greetings from McDonald's! Thank you for writing in to us. Please accept our apologies for not replying sooner. We regret to learn that your experience at our restaurant was not up to your expectations. The quality of our food is very important and, with every customer, we're committed to serving the highest quality products possible. We have discussed your complain with the concerned restaurant manager for the necessary action. At McDonald's, we always try to serve our customers to the best of our abilities and their expectations - if not more. And hence, suggestions, observations and feedback from our valued customers help us identify areas of opportunity in our restaurants. We will make sure that apt measures are taken to ensure that the high level of service standards, for which McDonald's is renowned the world over, are consistently maintained. We look forward to an opportunity to serve you again. Thanking you."

Yours truly,

    When we call for placing an order, the people are trying to dissuade us from making the order by saying it will take very long, there are too few staff today, or some such comment. Ultimately when we still persist, the order comes in a short time. Why does this happen ?

food poisoned!

After eating a Big Mac an hour and a half before, I became extremely feverish, and developed a horrible stomach ache, minor diarrhea, and pounding headache. This lasted for a good three hours and my body was in extreme pain. I took an Advil migraine pill which helped the headache and fever, and the stomach ache to some extent but you can be sure that is my last McDonald's experience. I only eat at McDonald's once or twice a year and I would hate to think of how many people who eat there more often than I have gone through.

    Sorry, but if you have taken any food saftey courses, you would know that it takes at least 72 hours before any foodborne illness sets in. This could have come from something earlier that you have eaten.

long wait and greasy double cheese burger and cold fries!

When i went through McDonald Saturday Dec.29,2007. First of all all i ordered was a double cheese burger meal i got pulled up to the line after waiting a couple of minutes, then they brought my food out to me and the burger was greasy and the fries was cold and the cashier had the nerve to have an attitude. I didn't have time to go back in because i was on my lunch break and i waited long enough for my order and i don't think customers should be treated like this at no restaurant and i love mcdonalds. Its actually one of my favorite fast foods but i will not continue to go there will treatment like this!

    I ordered 3 items from McDonalds, Got my bag and drove off, got on the freeway and NOT ONE item was correct.

    In California they hire what looks to be from an exclusive pool of Illeagal immagrants. Speeking or understanding english is not and issue of employment.

    And what the hell is with the recordings and song? NO!!! I don't want 3 old cookies for a dollar, NO!! I do not want the f'n hashbrowns. WHAT I WANT IS WHAT I ORDERED. GET IT F'n RIGHT ONCE THIS YEAR.

    I went to Mcdonalds restaurant on San Jose Blvd., in Jacksonville Fla. today. It was in the Walmart super center. I ordered a big mac to go. The bun was so stale, I actually looked for mold on it. I finally pulled the bun off, and ate the meat. I'm sure they do a very good business at that store, so why the stale bun? If we hadn't been in the car, I would have taken it back.

bad service!

Upon visiting the Sandbrook Park Rochdale Mcdonalds drive thru i was given the wrong order then told to park up and wait. After five minutes my order arrived and my two chocolate milkshakes contained no chocolate. I had to go into the store where i waited for fifteen minutes for replacements which in the end came as strawberry as the chocolate had apparently ran out. Whilst waiting for my drinks my food had gone cold and i had to listen to the staff using foul language.

    I went to MkDonalds in Calgary DownTown on 7ave and 8street on March 23, 2008. I asked for the bathroom keys before ordering the food. Two chineez looking employees told me that I have to order the food first, before going to the bathroom and they didn't give the keys to me. I understand they they are the low class workers, but they have to learn the simple polite behavior when they work with the customers.

    You sound like you wrote this to put down "the chineez." Three things: save money so you don't have to eat fast food, save money so you can travel and see other types of people, work on empathy and understanding that people have different points of view than you. Finally, you eat at McDonald's so if you call others low class... IT TAKES ONE TO KNOW ONE!

    I went to a McDonalds inside WalMart at Storm Lake, Iowa on Sunday, May 18th at about 2:45pm. I had to wait 10 minutes for my food and then it was cold! My daughter got a pretzel and it was cold also. As if it had just come out of the refrigerator. There was also a spray bottle with cleaning solution sitting on the grill. I also noticed french fries sitting in 4 baskets that had probably been there for at least an hour. There were 3 teenage employees at that location who did not seem to have much supervision. I believe that an inspection should be done and maybe have a manager on staff. One woman in front of me had been waiting for quite some time. The person at the register had to ask her again what she had ordered. She had a young child with her. I feel like something needs to be done in order to improve the service and friendliness of the staff at this location.

service & wokers not wearing gloves!

Going to Mcdonalds on 13875 Cypress North Houston Road for a simple big breakfast meal turned into a very upsetting encounter. Glen the restaurant manager was very rude! He was not wearing a name tag and his workers cooking the food were NOT wearing Gloves which I find DISGUSTING! I am not going to eat anything that has been touched by HUMAN HANDS! Everytime I go into this store I ask the workers to put on there gloves, which I should not have to do everytime I eat there. If GLENN was doing his job he would make his employees wear gloves while touching and handling the customers food.

I have been going to this Mcdonalds for 20 years . I ordered a big breakfast, with NO BISCUIT, add an xtra egg and have never in 20 years been charged for an xtra egg. Glenn was Rude and tried charging me $1.50 xtra for an xtra egg. Instead of making a regular customer happy, Glen made a scene in the store in front of everyone and told me " Well thats not the way it is here, you will pay xtra for your egg" HELL no I will not pay $1.50 xtra for my egg, I have been ordering my big breakfast this way for several years and have NEVER been charged! Glen is Rude, Unprofessional, and is a sorry excuse for a manager. I plan on contacting the health board and filing several complaints against GLENN, all over an xtra egg. Glenn needs to take classes on how to treat his customers and he needs to make his workers wear gloves everyday!

    Code says food workers do not have to wear gloves as long as they wash their hands frequently. But i find your attitude very distasteful. McDonald's is selling a product and just because you have never had to pay for an extra egg, think you are owed free stuff?

nasty food, poor customer service, unsanitary

Oct 29, 2007 I visited McDonalds location Bayside Lakes Blvd in Palm Bay FL to get lunch and waited almost 30 minutes for a burger and fries. When I finally did receive my food couldnt believe it was cold the fries tasted as if they had been refried from the night before and no one even apologized for my long wait. Not to mention when i attempted to fix my drink it was soda,ice, and food items all over the soda station! Very disgusting tables! Not to mention being located in area of many wealthy people with such poor everything is bad for business. I wasnt the only unhappy person there that left unhappy as well. In closing word of mouth travels so they may want to make some positive changes starting with better management!

    I agree with the comment about the McDonalds at Bayside Lakes in Palm Bay FL. I have visited that restaurant before and I was floored at how terrible the service was. The employees are extremely rude and did not display a professional attitude at any time. I witnessed a customer getting cursed out by a child who claimed to be the night Manager. It took quite some time for her to receive her food while the employees were playing around in the back which was visible to all the customers, when she asked to speak to the Manager she was told if she did not like it don't come back. I immediately walked out and I was so angry. I tried to complain to the Owner but kept getting the run around so I dropped the issue as I felt that they have taken enough of my time. Definitely not good for business and they will continue to loose support from the very community who has supported them from day one. I feel that with today's economy, this McDonald's restaurant should make superior customer service a top priority. It seems its so hard to find good customer service anywhere anymore. and thats sad.

    I worked at McDonald's for 6 1/2 years, and while I know makig every single customer happy when you're doing a $2000 lunch rush is not going to happen, it is no excuse for the poor service these people describe.
    I can't even think of a reason for having to wait 30 minutes for any item at McDonald's - the longest item to cook only takes 7 minutes! Yes, rush's happen, but to not even apologize for the wait? To not offer an apple pie or sundae "on the house" ? This was common practice at the West Melbourne stores I worked at (Patti Van Zante's stores are much better than corporate ones in the Bay).
    For the comment posted by the McDonald's of Bayside Lakes employee, shame on you. You should defend your store, instead you make yourself and co workers look like the uneducated stereotypes McDonald's employees are pinned as all the time. If you are upset the "Fatass PB people" order food for their families and friends "all the time", why are you working there? In customer service and working with the public, you should have a smile on your face and put the customer first - because they aren't always right, but they are the reason YOU have a job in a ### ### economy!

    I like to say that I have been at this McDonalds before and actually the employees were nice and attentive. I received my food immediately. I am sorry that these other people went through all they did but unfortunately things like the above mentioned are going to happen. Most drive thru's have lengthy lines inside and outside and you are going to receive cold items considering the amount of customers they have to serve all day especially during the rush hours. I suggest you visit them when they are not so busy instead. Again I have visited this McDonalds during a random visit to the Palm Bay area, and this was my first and only time I had been there.

bad everything!

I was looking for something late at night to eat and since I am in such a small town, I have few places to go. I picked McD's. Keep in mind I never eat the food because of orders CONSTANTLY being messed up. Well tonight was the last time and will be making numerous complaints. It was about 12:20 am, so they are on the last night menu. I wanted a GRILLED Ranch BLT w/ L fries and a L drink for the Monopoly money. I had asked if they had the game on the specified items I ordered and they agreed they did. So I continued my order. I paid about $8 for the order, which was ONE value meal [which is completely insane first off]. I don't eat in my car so I came home to try and enjoy this food. I opened my bag to find NO GAME PIECES on anything, after they said I would be getting them on ALL. I was mad about that but continued to open my meal. I opened the GRILLED chicken sandwich to find out it was a CRISPY chicken, which I cannot eat, that was the second thing and made me even more mad. Lastly I tried the fries, because I had nothing else left. COLD and CHEWY [keep in mind I used to work @ McD's and know when the fries are old]. I was FURIOUS! I decided to contact them about this, the female who answered the phone told me they DO NOT carry grilled after 12am [even though it IS on the menu] and I can get a free meal later on the next day. DO they really think this is good business? I wanted this food because I was hungry, and they would actually make someone wait for food they did NOT want? And the bad advertising is even better. I told her there was no way I was going to wait, I had worked a long day and wanted to eat and go to bed and say no, I will bring it back and you WILL give me my money back. With a bit of attitude in her voice, she said I could and I said OK then and hung up. I will NEVER eat @ McD's again, this is the LAST TIME!

    I was at the Mcdonalds in Stuart, fl (the one iside Walmart) I had ordered a breakfast item and while waitng for my order, glanced down at a headline in the local newspaper. The girl at the counter said" are you going to buy that paper? If not put it down" I look at her and could not believe she said that. I explained I was glancing at the headline waiting for my order, she said "it's the managers rule" I asked her to get the manager/he came and said "if you look at it you got to buy it" He was very rude when I asked for the Mcdonalds corporate number he refused to give it to me/ his name was Earnest and I feel he does not represent your company in the Mcdonald's tradition. I was very upset asked for my money back and left/ At no time did the paper leave the paer stand and total time I glanced at it was 30 seconds.I am really disapointed in the way I was treated.

    I am a McDonald's Manager and I have to say, you all
    are a bunch of whiny cry-babies. First of all, not all McD's are corporate owned, some are owner-operated so they DO NOT have to give you McDonald's corporate number. Second, if you would stop ordering our menu items in strange ways...add mac sauce, no ketchup, add 3 pickles and 1 tbsp of onions, the order would'nt be messed up. Remember this phrase

    Don't bite the hand that feeds you? Is that kind of like don't treat the people indirectly paying your salary like crap? I agree that many of these complaints are ridiculous (particularly the one with the woman wanting gas money and free food to compensate her for making her pay 3 cents for a fork when she was coming in regularly for forks and not buying anything so she could eat the lunch she brought from home), but some are very valid, especially about having the wrong food in the bag when the order slip has it right. It doesn't take much to read what you're being asked for by the person paying when you have it printed right in front of you on both screens and paper. Maybe if you gave a care about what you were doing or were half-way intelligent you probably wouldn't be working at McDonald's. Perhaps it's us who are wrong and we shouldn't expect a very simple job done right. Personally I get tired of getting home and having disappointed children because half of their food that we paid for didn't make it to the bag or their apples have soured and are starting to ferment. Driving back across town with half our food cold to rectify your errors is not really much of an option for most people. Yes, we could all check the order every time before leaving, but if you were doing the job you are being paid for, this would not be a concern. As far as special requests, the only thing I have ever asked for is to leave off the onions. My wife however is allergic to tomatoes and I know she is not the only person to be medically affected by the lack of worth in you and other people like you. Sometimes it's not just a picky ### in the line. Sometimes it just means that you could hurt someone, but as I said before, you're apparently too worthless to care. I know it's been almost a year since anyone has posted here, but I am hoping your address is still valid and you get this or that some other clueless soul that might deserve to read it does. And by the way, napkins with a meal are standard, not a luxury. Enjoy your mediocrity.

poor hot chocolate quality

I bought four Mc Chicken Sandwich Meals with 4 hot chocolate from McDonalds at Chelmer Village in Chelmsford in Essex, just to find as I got home that the drinks were quite dark. I took off the lid and saw that my cup was not filled to the maximum point. One quarter of my drink that I paid for was not in my cup. I knew that it could have been a mistake so I looked in the other three cups, they were all exactly the same. I was already very angry so I took some pictures of the three quarter filled cup and then started to drink the hot chocolate. The drink was thick and was much too sweet, it was the same with all the cups. It was very clear that there wasn't the right amount of milk as well. This infuriated me, when I pay for a drink (s) from a restaurant or a fast food restaurant, I expect to be given what I have paid for. Not a little bit less because I don't think they would have given me the food today if I had said I was paying a little less than the cost of the foods.

I enjoy the hot chocolates from McDonalds very much, but I feel that the quality left a lot to be desired today!

    Whoa that is truly shocking. If it weren't for this one time that the train refused to wait for me and made me miss my appointment with the beauty parlor then what you describe here would certainly be the worst case in human negligence I have ever heard of.
    In fact when I read the part about the hot choc being much too sweet it almost made me shed a tear. I just want you to know that I think what your doing is right. More people need to post descriptive and lengthy posts of their experiences of their rare, but horrifying, accounts of personal tragedy. Maybe someday the negligent and utterly disrespectful McDonald's will pay attention to ours cries for help and refund us our $4 hot chocolate?
    BUT perhaps we should not be so aggressive in our actions, perhaps the Chelmsford, Essex McDonald's simply had a malfunctioning hot chocolate machine? I know its quite ridiculous to assume so but maybe, just maybe, the world will live on.
    Oh and I want to say that I noticed that you are 11 years old and that I admire your literary skills and spelling accuracy in your writing. Such skill is seldom found on the internet. Also I felt when I read about how you said you felt very angry, that I TO felt very angry! Your telling of the horribleness of this excruciating hot chocolate even continued to eventually INFURIATE me.

    And I also much enjoy the taste of the McDonald's hot chocolates, and having worked there I know that the hot chocolate machines used are from an independent company not associated with McDonald's and are of a high quality. Although I have never experienced any problems with the actual machines I have found that the customer is an expert at finding them.

    I understand that when you pay for a drink at any restaurant you want top quality, but on the rare occasion that you do not get your entire moneys worth of quality or quantity, writing an angry post about it on the internet isn't going to change ###. Unless you like complaining, which I sense you do.

    i agree with preeya and that for carebear to talk to you like that was awful. She was only 11 years old. For you to criticise her about complaining and fussing over a little thing, makes you as bad as each other. Your doing excactly what preeya did, complain about a little thing. Did you thing taking the mickey out an 11 year old is mature.

    Good for you preeya. For standing up for yourself. I do agree with carebear that your literacy was rather good for when you were 11! I hope you have no more horrible hot chocolate!
