I guarantee you if an employee is "happy" at a fast food place, it's forced because they are supposed to be happy. I try to half smile, but most customers really don't notice if you aren't smiling from what I have observed. As long as you aren't looking pissed off or being pissy with them, then a lot of people don't seem to care.

It just depends on the specific location you're referring too.

For example, things generally tend to be cheaper in Arizona than in California.

Haha, I never see people happy either working there.
I also wouldn't touch the food, but in the end, its the money that counts, but I'd rather want to get up and feel slightly more happier about going to a job.

That said, it is rather funny seeing customers reactions sometimes, and they can at least give the day a bit more colour.

It's nice that you have are applying for a job but just remember a few things.
1st. You haven't even applied yet. Don't think the job is yours already. McDonalds might not be the most popular place to work at but it's possible that they have more than 1 guy wanting to take the job.

2nd. It's McDonalds, I highly doubt anyone likes working there. It might be alright but I'm telling you there are better places to work at.

Anyway, it's still a lot better than nothing so go for it. But don't expect it to be the best thing that ever happened to you, if you do then you will be disappointed.

Housing is at least 1/3rd more (Sometimes double in a "cheap" area in Canada vs a "cheap" US area), food is around 1/3rd more, gas is an extra buck a gallon, booze is double to triple, electronics are almost the same now (However we don't have lots of highly competitive sales), Internet access is 1/3rd more and we have more taxes!
