    Bad pay

    Cashier (Current Employee) Silver Spring, MD

    ProsGood 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.

    ConsThe 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.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Manager are rude, very disorganized, not clean.

    Server/Carver (Current Employee) Longwood, FL

    ProsSometimes you don't want to kill yourself.

    ConsThe place is gross, the managers are very rude, all their systems are outdated.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 Senior ManagementTry not being incredibly rude to your entire work-staff.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Worst Job of My Life

    Associate (Former Employee)

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

    ConsYou 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 Senior ManagementTreat people how you want to be treated.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    The worst experience of my life.....

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsThere are no pros to working for this company... There management turnover speaks for itself..

    Conshaving district managers that use you up and spit you out. You are nothing less than means to an end, a number. In my 42 years of management I have never worked with such ruthless, disfunctional people in my life.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBecome human.. Be apart of the solution instead of the problem..

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Overworked & Underpaid

    Crew Member (Former Employee) Riverdale, MD

    ProsOccasional free chickens at end of the day. Discounted food during 15 minute lunch breaks.

    ConsCleaning bathrooms, cleaning the dining room, unloading shipments, prepping chickens, baking chickens, preparing cornbread, taking out the trash, and constantly washing dishes is tiresome work and you never get a moment's rest except during your 15 minute lunch break.

    Advice to Senior ManagementWhoever the poor guy who does all the work that I was doing deserves to be paid at least $30,000 a year, but I was only being paid $10,500 a year.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Skimpy Summer Job

    Server (Former Employee) Southfield, MI

    ProsGreat loaded mashed potatoes and cinnamon apples

    ConsPoor hours, over worked underpaid. Managers have horrible team spirit. I was told by a manager who never worked an entire shift with me that I was a terrible person and given two weeks to get my attitude together or else I'd be fired. I'm a very pleasant person I was almost certain she had me confused with another employee. Used them as a reference not even 3 months later and they denied that I ever worked there!

    Flexible

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Denver, CO

    ProsGreat crew! Great product! Benefits for some.

    ConsNot enough freedom, too many restrictions from corporate, no raises or incentives. Corporate needs to know what their restaurants sell, marketing has to exploit social networks!

    Advice to Senior ManagementGive raises to people that stayed with you during your bankruptcy and who worked their butts off to get you out of it!!!!

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

     

    A depressing, mundane, careless company to work for.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsSome of the other workers are friendly, even management can be nice sometimes. Nothing else positive about this experience, however.

    ConsCompany simple could not care about employees. My manager used to go back into the time clock and shave off hours to save money due to strict hour limits set by regional management.

    Terrible place to work for

    Cook (Former Employee) Allen Park, MI

    ProsTheir were a few good co workers.

    ConsNo raises, Play favorites. Extra work no extra pay

    Advice to Senior ManagementPeople will come in and go if you keep treating them like this!

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
