    A lot of hours not enough pay.

    Restaurant Manager (Current Employee)
    Cincinnati, OH

    Prosno organization . They don't back there Store Managers. Jack will let employees and team leads no call no show and even quit (walk out in the middle of the shift three times)
     then bring them back.

    ConsYou are constantly running a shift with one or two people, includes fryers, grill, assembly, D-thru front cash and still expected to hit sos

    Advice to Senior ManagementThink long and hard before you take the position, Your life is there's never a weekend off. supposed to have 5 personal days, five sick days, but if you take one they will write you up for missing a day

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Its Exhausting and they do not respect when you feel sick nor when is a family emergency, there is a lot of favoritism.

    Cashier (Current Employee)
    Indio, CA

    ProsThere is nothing good about this job.

    ConsYou are over worked and no matter how good a job you do, you don't get rewarded or praise just "Thats your job" but you need to miss work they give you a warning for pointless reasons. They do not care about your problems on the side even if it's personal and if you are sick you better take some medicine because there is no way you are missing. I regret ever applying at this restaurant.

    Advice to Senior ManagementSet some boundaries with the power of the supervisors.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    OverWorked,UnderPaid and UnAppreciated

    Team Leader (Current Employee)
    San Diego, CA

    ProsNo pros all bad

    ConsPay is minimal damands are ridiculous constantly changing

    Advice to Senior ManagementTreat ALL the employees with respect and dignity ... try asking employees about what really goes on in your restaurants... show appreciation to ALL employees ... u only seem to reward assistance and up and they do the least work... evaluate employees on their work not the sales at store ... the employees have no control over sales even when they suggestive sell and give customer a wow experience

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    It's a very harsh environment to work.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsFree food, drinks, get to try new things, opportunity for advancement, checks every two weeks, making your food unique sometimes.

    ConsRude coworkers, poor management, terrible customers, no breaks, no meals, end up staying 2-3 hours after your shift ends, constant threats of being fired. Issues and needs are not taken care of. Go through management like a box of tissues. Had to train myself on everything. Got no formal training whatsoever. Those videos teach you nothing and the stuff they should be teaching you you only learn when you become team leader. People think its cool but you have to deal with way more bs and only get paid 75c more for it. If you have a choice don't work here and don't be team leader. It's is not worth it. And I wouldn't suggest going higher. Management gets kicked out every six months as it is.

    Advice to Senior ManagementDon't punish your good employees while your bad employees get away with everything.

    Unorganized

    Assistant Manager (Current Employee)
    Agoura Hills, CA

    ProsProvides great work experience, in a non hostile environment. Great first job management experience. Very easy if you speak both english and spanish and have a high school education.

    ConsNo formal training! Had to teach everything to myself. Underpaid and over worked. There was no manager at the time so I did all the work, The area coach kept postponing my manager raise so that i would continue to do the work but without the pay. Could have sued but I'm not that kind of person.

    Advice to Senior ManagementFix the crookedness and lack of following of policies and procedures.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
