Review updated:

My 15 year old daughter had got her first job at mcdonalds. They say they work around the kids schedule. That was a lie. They scheduled her to work a closing shift 2 to 3 times a week on a school night. She was told if she didn't work them she would be let go. So they let here go after working there a year. They said she didn't show for a couple of shifts, but we always watched our daughters shifts. Mcdonalds lies. Now my daughter is having a hard time finding a job. Now she's afraid of work. Thanks a lot mcdonalds.

    @pal none you have to be at least 16 due to labor laws and some can't work until 18. If they do they are breaking Labor Laws

    McDonalds does. They hire at 14 even. They are a bunch of lousy ### and i am ashamed to say that i work there to cover all the ### my parents want me to buy. I told them i didn't want to be on shift before 4 o'clock in the afternoon during the school year. they put me on at 4 and then [censor]ed at me for being late. Now what kind of ###ed ### is that?

    @stryker Your parents want you to be responsible, and work for the things you want... THAT is great parenting... To bad they raised an ungrateful little brat.

    They put their schedules out in advance... WHY didn't you TELL your boss tha tyou could not come in at 4:00. Frankly, it sounds like you think you can work whenever you want, and everyone else has to work AROUND you. That doesn't happen in the real world, kiddo, and I suggest you adjust your attitude soon, because you are going to be working the next 50 years.

    All fast food jobs suck, so deal with it. Why would your daughter be afraid of work? I know McDonalds isn't quite a prison camp.

    Poor baby. Many years from now maybe she'll grow up. What are you saying, ... she has a job phobia now. Get real! McDonalds didn't make her work there. You don't like it, Leave! You act like the world owes you a living. With your philosophy towards life no wonder she acts like an idiot.

    On September 27, 2007 @7:20am myself and, my husband went into the Mcdonalds @ 702 Washington St., Boston, MA for breakfast after we ordered our breakfast My, husband went to pay for it with his Debt card when the person working there said the machine does not work. So, I had cash on me. But, after about 10 mins a guy comes in and use his debt card with no problem. So, I seen it and went to the person working and, said why did you let that man pay for his with a debt card and, she said I did not know how to work it. First of all me and my husband being of color and, the guy that paid for his breakfast being a white man I was so upset. Not that I am prejustice it is the principle. My money spends like everybody us.

    Thank you for your time!

    On 5-21-08 I went to McDonalds and ordered the chicken sandwich combo with fries and coke. This was the all white meat chicken, but it was so terrible, it had no taste whatsoever, cooked too brown, and the fries, you could not even eat. I ate this sandwich but I would appreciate you sending me a refund or a certificate for another something to eat there. I will never eat a chicken sandwich again from your place. Also, it was so bland that my dog would not smell it.

    Today I decided to try the new country style chicken sandwich from Mcdonalds as usual with all Mcdonalds sandwiches it was way to salty, nevertheless I proceeded to eat while i was driving home. As I was about to take the last bite, i realise this grey things was hanging from the what is suppose to be chicken. It this grey rubbery skin none like I have ever seen before. Immediately I had an upset stomach, wondering what in gods name did I just eat.

    I would like to get whatever it is tested to see what it was, if anyone has any suggestion as to where i can go about getting that done i would appreciate it.

    No more mcdonalds for me.

    I work at McDonalds in Australia, and that type of thing is completely forboden! When I was in school, they refused to let me work those shifts. Why didnt you report it to the union or something? Threaten to sue for unfair dismissal? i dont know what it is like at other stores, but the othernight two girls threatened a customer but could not be fired because A. it was not caught on camera, and B. they threatened to sue for unfair dismissal

    Just recently My two friends and I went to mcdonalds for a burger. What a disaster ! One employee was asleet on the table, another two employees were making out at a table. The place was filthy and flys were all over the place. I really did not want to eat what I have ordered after just looking around. What a shame. Colonial Heights VA needs new management.

    First of all I never complain about anything but mcdonald at victoria pt needs complaining about. I have been there a number of time and found that you can not get an ice cream as the machine is either broken or just not available. it is not just once but it seems to be a permanent sign that they is up saying ice cream is unavailable. also today I had the new burger with bacon and seasoned avocado and guess what, they forgot the bacon. the lady behind me had the same order and they forgot the avocado.

    We ordered 30 biscuits for the Dublin Methodist Church and was told we could have a discount. I stopped by at Dublin McDonalds and was given the biscuits which 15 were sausage and 15 ham biscuits. I was told the bill was 63 dollars and some cents. I asked if he could give me a discount and he said that it already was included. I can"t believe that amount was correct, and I would like to know why .

    OMG!!! I really didn't realize how cheap McDonalds has actually become!! We only have ONE McDonalds in this area, as it is a rural community and any other McDonalds is over thirty miles away in Douglasville Georgia!! So.. not only are people getting laid off in this terrible economy...we NOW have to deal with INFERIOR products!!! My husband went to this McDonalds and ordered 2 biscuits with bacon, egg and cheese... when he got them home, I opened mine and it had just ONE HALF of a piece of bacon!!! I asked him to open his, as mine may have just been an oversight perhaps. Lo and behold his was exactly the same, that one little PITIFUL HALF PIECE of bacon!!! Now really, do you expect people to think that was a mistake??? I know this sounds like a ridiculously little thing but it sure makes me NOT want to go to ANY McDonalds anymore and as you know... word of mouth spreads much faster than ANY advertising campaign, therefore you can be quite assured that I will be speaking against the McDonalds in Temple Georgia.

    I know. It is the worst McDonalds I have ever been in. The lunchs are tollerable, but the suppers are horendous. A comment was made about how bad they was to an employee, and they replied they didn't care, it is McDonalds and people will come back. It is bad when you live in a small town and the choices for food is minimal and you have something like this. It is just a waste of real estate space if you ask me.

    Well, I have been working for Mcdonalds for 8 years. I have never seen such things happen. I am now a store manager and kids still in school can never close during the week. So what ever Mcdonalds was doing that is illegal and needed to be reported. But don't allow one mccdonalds to ruin it for all. And you should not have your kids thinking mcdonalds is a bad place to work cause they will use that with any job not to work cause they know mom or dad is going to take up for them. A job is a job and thats why they are sent out into the real world to learn but if we take up for them and talk bad about jobs they will never be responsible. Mcdonalds is a great place to work and got me a townehouse a new car and my kids never want for nothing.

    As far as your first complaint goes, the doors not working, you can probably speak with that store's manager to get that resolved quickly. The other two complaints, the high chair and the special diets, probably won't change anytime soon. The high chair issue can probably get resolved but the special diet issue is a HUGE corporate decision. Write to them directly so that they know the demand is out there.

    I have been a long term customer of MacDonalds and wondering why it costs me extra to get mac sauce on my burger but if I get just ketchup it costs me nothing!?! Some places charge 25 cents for a shot of mac sauce and then I was told they can't put it on a single burger anymore, but they have the time to put it in a cup for me. I don't understand the concept of time management on that one. You would think it would be easier to put it on the burger than put it in a cup. also lately I have noticed the customer service in this area sucks. When you go you end up with a teenage immature worker who has a bunch of friends hanging around and they mess up the order or they don't even care that you are there they continue to talk to their friends while I am giving my order. also the salt content has been a bit much lately. I have had to throw out numerous orders of fries and have complained to management at these places and it ALL remains the same. I find it extremely disturbing that MacDonalds would get a customer service award, it should be taken away immediately!!!

    You can request fries without salt and then put your own on if you find them too salty. Each person salts things differently.

    You will only ever find teenagers working there. It's a minimum wage job and an easy way for a teen to make some cash. You don't need many skills to work at McDonald's. Let's face it, not all responsible adults want to work a drive thru.

    As for the sauces. Anytime you order any sauce or condiment that does not already come on the sandwich, you will get charged for it. I.e. If you want mayo on your quarter pounder, you will be charged extra. If you ask for Mac sauce, sometimes the grill staff thinks it goes "on the side", mainly because the window staff don't communicate.

    McDonald's is cheaply priced and cheap tasting. Why would you expect anything but the lowest standards?

    Less than a year ago Macdonalds served me a large hair ball which almost chocked me to death. For my unplesant visit they gave me coupons for three meals, which I gave away.
    I had not eaten any fast food since then, until last week. After a busy work week my co-worker stopped at Macdonalds after check on a job and bought me a crispy chicken snack wrap. He thought I might need something to eat because we were working so much. I was surprised it tasted as good as it did being fast food. On the third bite I bit down and screamed "what the f___!" My poor coworker jumped and asked what happened? I pulled a large very sharp piece of bloody hard plastic. It was shaped like an arrow head and the razor sharp point had stuck me in the upper gum where I had had a tooth removed. It also felt like I had cracked the tooth next to my gum. I called the manager and complained . I called again a half hour later and was told he could find no other pieces in the prep area. I will never eat fast trash ever again even it is offered by a friend.

    Saturday like so many other days they have about 5-6 people making the food and they mess up the sandwiches every time all day long. Also had one cashier going with three managers there. Taking five minutes for each person is to long to punch a registar. We ordered after standing in line 10 minutes and they over charged after telling the lady 4 times what we wanted...waited another 7 minutes while the manager tried to get to the regerstar to refund the money to us. Then I had to ask 2 times for our drink cups from the manager.Also asked for a plain cheesburger and got a cheeseburger with everything on it. Hubby got a Big Mac little lettuce and he didn't get that right either. After we sat for another 10 minutes the manager brought out the cookies for our g-daughter as there was none made and I had to ask for my g-daughters chocolate milk that we didn't get. While eating obsevered a gentleman with 2 little kids and he also didn't get the hamburgers that was suppose to be in the Kid's meal...he had to go and get them. We counted 4 people who went and tried to get ketcup out of the pump and there was none...the manager gave them packs of ketcup and after 15 minutes she finally told the guy who was supposly cleaning tables to check the ketcup. he did but after he checked it by changing something he squirted ketcup in a small pile on the plate under the pump and left the pile of ketcup. This happens every day ( 2 times a week) when we go there. As of today we no longer want to return to an unorganized resturant where you have to wait for fast food and always getting our order wrong. I have complained several times this year to the manager ( different ones ) and it still is not imprroving. I think these Managers and workers need a good meeting and told if not getting things done right...there ARE other people who are looking for a job. This does make people go to other buisnesses as it will us. Thanks for your time and hopefully something is done to improve this store as it is heading downhill instead of uphill like it should. Also a smile would not hurt from them either.

    As a friend and I enterned Mcdonalds a employee was putting away trays, She greeted us ( as if we mattered )By the time we were ready to order- she was behind the counter to help with the order. I told her that she was like a good will ambassador- she thanked us again.
    We received our food and sat down. Other people came in - she greeded everyone with a smile and a hello, or Hi ! my ~ my, what a good idea.
    I did notice that when she was working around other employees that they too were
    more polite. Maybe it is contagious. Don't know her name, her name tag just said Cindy. We need more people ( and Employees) with such a pleasant and positive attitude. Thanks Cindy, Thanks Mcdonalds.
