    Pros

    Depending on who you work with, it can be fun, and if you like fast paced, it's a good place to be

    Cons

    thw pay absolutely sucks and they make it way too difficult to get a raise, and if u ever get one, won't be more than .25 which is a bunch of crap

    Advice to Management

    Stop trying to make everything better, you're just complicating the system even more

    Pros

    It was easy to get a job here, got hired quickly with no experience. Also, although it was busy at sometimes, it's not the kind of place that's busy all day - you had a couple hours to breathe when customers mostly stopped coming in. It was an okay job when we had enough employees and it wasn't the holiday season. And I liked most of my coworkers.

    Cons

    Understaffed, poor training, worked too many hours, could get really busy, annoying manager, low pay, etc. etc.
    When I started, there was no real training, they just hire you and assume your coworkers will tell you what to do and kind of leave you awkwardly standing there. My manager would not tell me how to do something properly, then wait until I did it and messed it up, and yell at me like I was supposed to magically know. Yet, when I did try to ask him something to make sure I knew how to do something correctly, he would completely act like I was stupid and be condescending. we lost a few employees and it took WAY too long for my manager to find new people to hire, so for like two months I was screwed into working 50 hours a week with no breaks (maybe 10-15 minutes to eat lunch if I was lucky) instead of the 35-40 I agreed to. This place got so understaffed that sometimes I would be the only person making the food for all the customers during a rush, so no matter how hard I tried customers would get rude because of how long their food took. Customers also test your patience but that's with any fast food place probably.

    Pros

    Good benefit package, Nice customers

    Cons

    Long hours, Company doesn't reward performance. Haven't had a raise in 3 years even though I have contiually improved profit and sales. Been in top 10% performers in the company. Taken on multi-unit position. High turn over

    Advice to Management

    Pay better. Reward performance and tenure consistanly. Allow employees to receive tips.

    Pros

    Extremely easy to get hired, fairly easygoing with breaks.

    Cons

    Early shifts, horrible pay, and very corporate. When you see how things are prepared and how low quality the food is, you might not eat there again. It is fast food after all. You don't even get a free meal on long shifts.

    Advice to Management

    Pros

    Work from home no office you need to be at.

    Cons

    GM in stores hard to work with. They also tend to put blame on you and also backstabbing.

    Advice to Management

    Catering Sales Manager needs to respected by the stores (GM) since Sales Mangers do a entire market they should be at the same level and authority of the Area Manager
