    Pros

    The people overall are caring and kind. Willing to help when needed. The environment is fun and allows for new ideas. For the most part the values are true and can be visible throughout.

    Cons

    Upper management seems to not care very much about employees. Decisions seem to be made at the last minute.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate better to employees the long term plan. Its scary to work in an environment when you keep being told that no one is sure yet what is going to happen.

    Pros

    Easy to learn. It's like any other fast food. If you move up you can make some pretty decent money.

    Cons

    Minimum wage starting out. Large menu to learn. A lot of cleaning to do. Not as many team members to run a shift like at McDonald's or other places so its difficult to be fast sometimes.

    Advice to Management

    If you are a quick learner and have leadership skills you can become a team leader fairly quickly. You get a nice little raise just for that. If you prove yourself from there you can become an assistant manager and eventually a store manager.


  6. Excellent place to work..

    Pros

    Fast-paced, innovative environment offers lots of opportunity. Culture respects tenure as well as new ideas, often a difficult balance to achieve.

    Company values it's employees, and attempts to provide work- life balance...few retention issues.

    Cons

    Lots of decisions-by-committee, which can be inefficient.

    Advice to Management

    Dont be afraid to lead. The Leadship team is smart, capable, and there for a reason!

    Pros

    The store I currently work at has some great people with a lot of potential. I enjoy woking with many of my fellow employees and have made some great friends.

    Cons

    Some of the team leaders at my store are are not team players. They seem to be looking out for themselves. When it is busy some of the team leaders ignore the members that are struggling to get the food out in a timely manner. These team leaders are wondering around, talking on their cell phones, eating, or just sitting on their butts with their feet up.

    Advice to Management

    The team leaders at my store need to 'grow-up' and do their job. They were not promoted to sit in the office or stand outside and smoke. They need to lead the team and work side-by-side helping and directing to get the food out for the customer to enjoy.
