McDonald's sees unprecedented slowdown
Normally, 1 or 2 of the company's top 10 markets might struggle. Now, for the first time, it's seeing trouble across the board.
It would help McDonald's if they were to hire and properly train people who want to work. At the McDonald's near me, I noticed that 7 out of 10 orders come back because something was made wrong. Alot of times, it is because the customer will get something in addition for free. The rest of us just want our order to be right. I requested a Hot Spicy Chicken sandwich with no mayonnaise. It took seven tries for them to get that one right. It came fully dressed the first time. The second time it came with mayonnaise no lettuce. The third time, it came with everything except the chicken. The fourth time, it came with a piece of chicken that was over 30 minutes old, it was dry. The fifth time, it was fully dressed again. I forget what was wrong the sixth time, but on the seventh try, it came with chicken and bread, so I just asked for a lettuce cup. The point is that their employees basically do not pay attention to what they are doing.
On the rare occasion when we used to be able to afford fast food, it would cost us (two people) more than $10 dollars total for some freakymeat and fries....you have to realize, you can still buy a small steak at the food store for less than that.
Oh, the dollar is stronger so you missed your silly WS estimates?....b!teme!
The products will get to the consumer without them..........
Time to cut the dead weight and make the remainder work for a living........
I always get a kick out of people who say Mac's sucks; yet, their parking lots are full and and there's
15 cars in their DT lane....alot of people think different.
Also, no one in my circle of friends even thinks about MCD. If they want fast food, it's always In-N-Out. People really are starting to wake up, and know now to appreciate good food and excellent customer service. MCD has run its course. That is all.
wasn't it just yesturday, McDonnalds specifically, recommended as a 'buy' stock from you?

If I am in a good mood and feel like getting pissed off, I go to a McDonalds drive through......
I have NEVER dealt with such stupidity! From "forgetting" to give you sauce with your nuggets, to no fork with your salad, the employees working at McDonalds are the WORST I have ever seen! And its not just my local place, I travel A LOT and every single time I stop, there is a discrepancy!
Want to bring in more customers? GET COMPETENT HELP!!!!!! Quit "revamping" your stores and start revamping your staff!
