    Pros

    Good quality of life as far as the hours opened.

    Cons

    Management is to focused at headquarters and not really interested in ideals from the employees that work with the customers. Corporate advancement is too much about not making waves than saying what is right or makes common sense. Pay structure that is out of date that penalizes internal hires over people from the outside.

    Advice to Management

    Don't be afraid of the advice or constructive criticisms from the field.

    They do have a great product.

    Over worked.., unreal expectation.,, you will need to burn out your employees to make company goals

    Pros

    Good product, recently has improved corporate management.

    Cons

    Focus on short term profit seems to hurt both the company and the employees.

    Advice to Management

    Allow store-level management more power, offer better benefits and compensation to keep good, long term employees. People who want cheap, fast, food have plenty of better options. I think this business would be better served by standing out in employee familiarity.

    Pros

    If you are a hard worker its very easy to move up in this company. I have watched people go from cashiers to General Managers with in months. No late nights. Very easy to transfer. I transferred from Utah to Illinois and it was a very simple process.

    Cons

    Very early shifts, can be difficult if you don't enjoy getting up early. Pay isn't the best it could be. Employees arent taken care of the way they should be. Medical Benefits are a joke.

    Advice to Management

    Take better care of employees. Give better benefits and incentives.
