    Great food with employee discounts Overall a positive environment as far as food service goes

    Cons

    Can be stressful, as with any food service job that is fast paced. Nothing bad to say about the company though.

    Pros

    Comfortable environment. Great people to work with. Boss is very understanding and wants you to succeed. Tries to get you all the training you need to be able to do your job and be happy with it.

    Cons

    Nothing to really say here. The only con was that it was a sales position and that requires a lot of cold calling and long hours but pushing through it with the correct team (these guys) was totally worth it and I learned a lot. (So still pretty much a positive here!)
