    Pros

    The managers and district managers really care about employees. Very team oriented.

    Cons

    It does not matter how many good things you do, one bad thing and that's all they remember. Not strict on employees (with their behavior, following company rules, etc.)

    Advice to Management

    Follow up with employees. You should not be keeping employees that are harmful to your business.

    Pros

    If you're used to working in fast food then it is a very typical job. Fast paced so you're never bored, my co-workers all seem like very nice people, they are at least some what willing to work with you if you need to get a certain day off or have schedule conflicts.

    Cons

    Most unorganized place I have ever worked for. Everyone just does what they want. I have been there for over a month and I still have not been trained or gotten a uniform. Everyone who isn't part of drive thru or a front cashier barely speaks English. There is a huge language barrier. Most fast food places require you to learn every position but this place doesn't work that way at all.

    Advice to Management

    Learn to speak English or stop hiring people who only speak English because it's very hard for everyone to understand each other. Actual training your new hires should be mandatory rather then throwing them into things and expecting them to somehow know how to do things and then yelling at them when then don't do it correctly. Train all staff to be able to do every job.
