At McDonald's, I work every time. (In this sentence, it is a little unclear, but the sentence suggests that when McDonald's needs me to work, I work. It means several different times.)
At McDonald's, I work all the time. (In this sentence, the writer is saying that the person works the full time that he or she is at McDonald's.)

all the time, every time
There is some confusion between every time and all the time in a couple of papers. Every time refers to several different events. All the time consists of an extended event.
