Automation is about to hit McDonald's employees, and it's about to hit us hard. Thousands upon thousands of jobs will be lost. My advice is to try and find a new job as soon as possible - before the job market is over saturated. I know I've already... read more
Topics regarding layoffs at McDonald's Corp.
This is a master thread about McDonalds Layoffs in 2019?
Anybody here buying the whole "new upgrades that come with self-order kiosks will not cost jobs?" I know that's what they are saying, but something tells me reality will turn out to be different and we'll see plenty of layoffs as part of this. I'll... read more
The regional office where I have been working for 3 years is closing. Just yesterday a position open in a different city, and they asked me about it. I’m so glad I gave them a firm “No”, this will only prolong the inevitable. I’m done with MCD and... read more
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
My wife worked over five years for McDonalds from 2012 to 2017. I saw how the corporate culture changed in those five years, not not for the better. Yes, at first it was a company that offered upward mobility if you worked hard, bought in to the... read more
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
So, now that we know more layoffs are coming to McDonald's corporate (something exactly nobody is shocked about), let the speculation begin on how many, when exactly, and what departments. Frankly, I hate it when we find out about layoffs ahead of... read more

I saw people say that their company is posting fake job openings and it made a connection for me I had not figured out previously. I'm a McDonald's manager and we too have a constant help wanted ad, even though we are not in need of any help. It's... read more
Any updates on the reorg in the corporate office. Phase share any info you may have - there are rumors floating around but I am not sure how realistic they are.
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
I know working at McDonald’s is a mixed bag, but my experience is in the not so good variety. The management team at my location never heard the ‘lead by example’ phrase. Most seem more concerned with who is seeing who or other latest gossip. Crew... read more
Is someone able to comment on layoffs in Oak Brook.
What's interesting is that parking is limited downtown; as well as paying for parking is outrageous... Do you think mcds will attract young talent by paying them wages as if they were working in oak brook? Cost of living in Chicago is much much... read more
Today on K-LOVE, A caller called in who used to work at a McDonald's and revealed that when their store had run out of the big Mac sauce, they went to the grocery store and had gotten thousand Island salad dressing as a substitute!
Do you think we'll have layoffs in Oak Brook.
Outsourcing, layoffs, and moving corporate to Chicago is NOT your answer....It's your products. Get a better beef supplier, make more options, bring back create your taste!
Devry, which workers have compared to "a dumpster fire," is now teaming up with McDonalds https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/devry-headed-wrong-direction-dahn-shaulis?trk=mp-author-card "As part of McDonald’s Archways to Opportunity, a program that... read more
Like Wendy's, threatening to reduce workers if the min wage increases, but they'll reduce workers anyway. Already doing it at WaWa.
Recently, NASS started to gather information to outsource to Genpact in India. American jobs outsourced.....
Sad to see McDonald's leave such a beautiful campus, and wonder area. If they are encouraged due to a tax break from the Mayor, whose going to be taking up the slack ? It's us that live and pay taxes in cook country. If McDonald's is leaving because... read more

17 folks were laid off in McDonalds legal department. The Legal Worker's Comp team was eliminated, managing counsel and senior counsel, paralegals and admins ffrom other teams were also eliminated.
Do we have any updates on the layoffs that the media has been reporting about
McDonald's will cut over corporate jobs, to sum it up, it should equate to $300 million in cost cuts by 2017
Do we have any updates here?
They're coming. Every department has cuts and I've heard the names of about a half dozen folks I worked with as being let go. The US Shared Service Center is being outsourced, so all of those folks will be hosed by year end.
Layoffs have already started...Lots of HR layoffs for admins, etc......last week.....and there is another round coming soon......
Do you know if a reorg is planned for 2015 and if there will be layoffs of people who work at McDonald's Corporate office? I heard that going into Q2 there might a bigger reorg in works and that some people may be redundant and will be let go
More to come in Q2 and Q3 - McDonald's trying to improve profit margins and the easier way to do this is to cut jobs. On top of this, there will be a hiring freeze, so we'll have to do more with less resources available.
Can we sustain such a big corporate machine if our stores are not making more money? It seems to me that we are hiring managers to manage managers who are in charge of managers. Seriously, how much layers of approvals do we meed in Corporate?
What's a typical severance package in Corporate IT?
Anybody noticed that we do not hire as much as we did before, it looks like all new folks are contractors?
