When they wipe that filthy rag across the tables, they'll have a disposable mask and rubber gloves on

McDonald's employees have been on strike with no access to PPE here in the Bay Area for the past few weeks on and off.
I personally don't eat McDonalds, found a long hair in my fries last time I ate it last year.

Walmart says they close early for, among other things, disinfecting. The closest I ever saw to that was a mid-level manager spray some crap on self-checkout, which he did NOT clean off.  Nice big globstains on the machines, dried into soapy discharge.  Real professional.

Are not most McDonald's franchises?

I stopped patronizing McD years ago.  Most of their employees have the attitude that customers are a necessary annoyance.  They don't seem to realize that customers are the entire reason they have a job.  They cannot seem to correlate customers with paychecks.  Besides, most of the half-wits I ran across before I quit patronizing them wouldn't have any idea how to wipe a rag across a table.

IMHO, it's all up to the managers of any restaurant and how busy the busboys are. Restaurants are the worst when you see them do it as they rotate tables so fast and the table is still wet and sticky

Agreed, the employees at McDonalds are trash.

That's why I only patronize Arby's.  If they don't treat you right, you can hurt their feelings by not ringing that bell thing on the wall on the way out.

I don't think this is it.

I think the bottom line to them is this: their customers aren't paying them, their boss/McD is.

Why should they give a crap about the customers if they get paid the same for good service as bad?  Especially when bending over backwards you will still have an occasional a-hole who is having a bad day and needs someone to look down on?

If the management connects good service with financial rewards on the front line, then yeah, sure, give good service and get rewarded for it.  But that's more of an exception then the rule.

Word. Their too greedy, and people don't know how to not go to a crowded place. So we harm each other. Instead of shutting down tables between uses. That would be too expensive and too inconvenience, for owners and customers respectively.

To be fair, workers have this attitude because of the companies. Too many companies aren't selling a product. Their selling an idea of a product. The workers are seen as a unwanted but slightly necessary expense did they tolerate. And the feel entitled to customers money. If you happen to get a decent results / product from the transaction that is just a happy coincidence not their desire they just want your money.

Yeah, I can't imagine why such a DELIGHTFUL individual gets eyerolls and lazy service.

OP, have you ever worked fast food? Because they don't get paid enough to give a damn about your bullshiat AND do all their other work duties too. Maybe if the workers actually saw some of the profit from said customers they'd actually care about the customers. Just a thought.

I have only encountered one McDonald's that had service issues, in Auburn Hills near Oakland University.

Every other one, hell 99% of fast food places I've been to, were friendly. I mean, lazy sometimes and incompetent others, but never rude to me.

I'm good at fake smiling and friendliness from waiting tables though, so approaching them with that mask on probably helps. Give friendliness first and see what you get back.

Oh horse pucks.

I've worked fast food.
Management is a bunch of jerks that care more about speed than correct. If you are fast enough they will forgive murder.
For them, 80 percent correct and 150 faster is preferred.
Who cares if incorrect kills people
Not them.

I actually work for a franchised Wendy's atm in a very tourist busy area. I try my best to give every customer a good experience, but you're 100% right that I'm a LOT nicer to those that are nice to me. If you have patience and are at least civil toward me I will do everything I can to make your meal great. I even cruise the dining room and make sure ppl have things they need.
But treat me like garbage? I will absolutely give you shiatty fries and tell the sammich person on you. 😈😈

Going one step further, the existing setup encourages them to do things to drive customers away, since, up until the place goes out of business, they get paid the same whether customers show up or not, and their job is easier when they don't show up.

A better system IMHO would be a share the rewards system.  Where you take the profit (or lack thereof) and divide it fairly.

Somewhat off topic, I seem to remember Jason Alexander talking on a podcast about salary negotiation.  After Seinfeld took off, the bosses at the network came to him saying "Listen, dude, Just look at you.  Do you really thing what you did was worth x millions of dollars?"

He told them, "Honestly, No, of course it's not worth millions of dollars, I'm a farking actor.  All I do is pretend to be someone else.  It's just barely a real job!  But that's not the issue here, The bottom line is this: Our show made you billions of dollars in ad revenue.   Your job isn't to determine if I'm worth any amount of money.  It's to take the amount you made and divide it fairly among the people that made it happen."

I'd tell old this:
On paper the procedure for making chili seems perfectly safe.
But in real life this is what transpired.
Hamburger patties on the grill too long to be served as hamburger.
Said Patty was put in a heated drawer.
Later from that drawer was placed in the walk in.
Later from there it was boiled then chopped.
Later that chopped meat was placed in Chilli.
And, If not all sold back into the walk-in.
And also rehydrated with hot water, periodically.
That is too many steps. Steps leave chance for error. And we only have a four hour window of abuse to work with that is cumulative.
So things to worry about a concern yourself with:
Was the Patty abused before it ever ended up on the line did it sit out on the loading dock too long?
Was the rotation correctly followed for each batch of meat?
Was the dating of here to on dating of the finished chili and future meat patties?
And on an on. But, yeah that's so safe on paper.
Meanwhile I personally saw green meat.
I personally saw Chili going to the walk in and back out to the line more than a few times before it was finally all gone.  I saw old chili mix with new chili. I saw different aged chopped up meat mixed with other different age chopped up meat.
I saw drawers of old patties sit longer than just one shift.
I saw boiled meat sit longer than it should have before he got chopped up.
I saw the manager Ralph more than once lower the temperature on the chili because it was drying out too fast for his penny-pinching mind
Ignoring the needs to keep it at 140 degrees.
never mind that the walk-ins did not have quick blast cooling so that hot meat was not being cooled off fast enough that hot chili wasn't being cooled off fast enough because quick blast chilling is expensive
.
So yeah Boomer keep eating that chili

My ex ordered a breakfast sandwich without the meat. It came with ham. She took it back and they asked the cook about why he put meat in the sandwich. He said he didn't, he put ham in it. That story made it to the local paper when I told the feature writer.

And on an on. But, yeah that's so safe on paper.
Meanwhile I personally saw green meat.
I personally saw Chili going to the walk in and back out to the line more than a few times before it was finally all gone.  I saw old chili mix with new chili. I saw different aged chopped up meat mixed with other different age chopped up meat.
I saw drawers of old patties sit longer than just one shift.
I saw boiled meat sit longer than it should have before he got chopped up.
I saw the manager Ralph more than once lower the temperature on the chili because it was drying out too fast for his penny-pinching mind
Ignoring the needs to keep it at 140 degrees.
never mind that the walk-ins did not have quick blast cooling so that hot meat was not being cooled off fast enough that hot chili wasn't being cooled off fast enough because quick blast chilling is expensive
.
So yeah Boomer keep eating that chili


Good god. I'm glad my store is anal about servsafe

If McDonalds ever wants another dime from me, they'll bring the McRib back to the northeast this year
