McDonald's Layoffs and Furloughs due to Coronavirus

I am assuming that most restaurants are switching to take-out only - this model requires less workers. Is McDonald's about to start a round of layoffs and furloughs? How about the main office, are corporate people going to be affected by Coronavirus?... —  read more

MCOPCO Job Losses

I heard on the MCOPCO side they are reducing headcount, it’s about profit and they are dumping labor.

What's going on right now...

Bang up job SE is doing, way to run things into the ground. Can’t wait to see how sh–ty the company will be in two more years. I hear it’s a dumpster fire.

Time to move on

How many people is this?

Can anybody venture a guess at how many people constitute $80 million to $90 million in severance payments? McDonald's just announced that will be the charge in the current quarter for the restructuring, and it's the first indicator we have of how... —  read more 

Why is Kempczinski quiet on the headcount reduction numbers?

Now, we do not even know how much will be cut. Everyone is anxious. I know he announced it to help with the stock price - he wants the street to perceive us as more profitable with less cost but do you think that he should have thought how employees... —  read more

Zero customer service skills

I’m all about customer service at Mcdonald’s. If you provide excellent service, then chances are you’ll get repeat business. I have a shift manager in my store that I swear doesn’t have an ounce of professionalism. I’ve caught her yelling at our... —  read more
