    I worked at Boston Market full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Over all very easy work; steady pace; pleasant customers; it was kool I guess idk I'm just doing this because I have to

    Cons

    I could go on for days. Every company has their pros and cons. Some their pros just dnt outweigh their cons.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try being more humble, at act like you care about your employees. Money means nothing if you can't appreciate the people who are helping to make it

    Boston Market has lost their values within in all aspects of the company. No respect for employees at all.

    Pros

    Benefits were okay. Some employees are great to work with.

    Cons

    If you are not in an executive position, you are treated poorly. No family values. Constant back stabbing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider listening to entry level employee concerns. Show respect and follow through on promises made. Stop running a romper room environment.

    Pros

    Good if you have no experience. Most customer are very nice and at first it is a good place to work. The coworkers I work with make it fun and joyful.

    Cons

    The pay is horrible I have been working there for 2 years and dont even make $8. I work 12 hour shift a day. The managers dont even seem to care. They are so cheap that they wouldnt even fix the air conditioning and heater.

    Pros

    Sometimes you don't want to kill yourself.

    Cons

    The place is gross, the managers are very rude, all their systems are outdated. It is sometimes dangerous to work there (cleaning vents with no gas mask, fires in the ovens, grease on the ground, ice all over the place). Horrible scheduling, they will put you on at 5:30 so you'll spend an half an hour in traffic stuck in rush hour.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try not being incredibly rude to your entire work-staff.

    I worked at Boston Market full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    I can't think of many other than some of my coworkers were friendly.

    Cons

    You will never want to eat chicken again after working for this company. Their choice in management is horrid and I could not believe the amount of sexual harassment that went on. People showed up to work high on all kinds of things and I'm pretty sure money was stolen from the register on a regular basis. I was so happy to get out of that place.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat people how you want to be treated.
