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

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.
I heard on the MCOPCO side they are reducing headcount, it’s about profit and they are dumping labor.
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
This thread is for info about potential McDonalds Layoffs 2020? Any news or rumors?
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
This is a master thread about McDonalds Layoffs in 2019?
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
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
Is someone able to comment on layoffs in Oak Brook.

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
Do you think we'll have 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!
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!

What is the likelihood of McDonalds layoffs in Oak Brook in 2016? Please let me know if you have any information.
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......
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?
I hear that we are preparing cuts in Marketing and IT. McDonald's has done similar things in the past, I would not be surprised if this was to repeat. Several people I know confirmed this. Our IT group is huge and there is a ton of well paid people... — read more
