    Bad customers and UNDER trained managers.

    stop trying to save money and have more staff on, maybe that will cause less stress and less angry customers.

    I have been working at McDonald's Australia full-time for more than 20 years

    Pros

    Really good training available, really good people. Different every day.

    Cons

    Some people are terrible, customers speak to you very poorly at times. Time pressure to meet budgets, no time to complete tasks leading to many extra hours worked for free. Unpredictable rushes at times, adding to the stress.
