    Pros

    Decent work for students, alright pay as a line cook, very flexible hours to work whenever you wish

    Cons

    Scheduling can be an issue when there are not enough people willing to work the slower hours, customers forget its only a diner and expect much more

    Advice to Management

    Make sure that the people working together can actually get along, if there is major change, make sure to tell everyone well before the change occurs.

    Pros

    They are very cooperative with scheduling and recognize the hard working employees. Managers will fight for your raise if deserved.

    Cons

    Terrible hourly pay and degenerate employees. The upper management very seldom comes in and when they do they take no recognition of the hard workers. They hardly ever give raises to those who deserve them yet hire criminals as cooks at $12.00/hr

    Advice to Management

    Utilize you're right for a sufficient background check!
