    Pros

    It is not a difficult application process. Even with very limited work history and no education it is pretty easy to get the job and work it long enough to get a better job. Also it is usually a fairly fast paced dynamic environment and can be a decent place for more high energy people to work.

    Cons

    Graveyard shifts were often busy, and so understaffed that it was almost impossible to take breaks. The buzzer over the drive-through window was incredibly loud and would usually make it more difficult to hear customers orders which was ironic because the buzzer was intended to encourage us to work faster.
    Between the drive through buzzer, timers for the grill and friar, and dysfunctional headsets I would often end up going home with a ringing in my ears that would disrupt my sleep. My hearing has literally never been the same.There is also very little real opportunity for advancement.

    Pros

    no 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.

    Cons

    You 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 Management

    Think 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


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

    Pros

    There is nothing good about this job.

    Cons

    You 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 Management

    Set some boundaries with the power of the supervisors.


  7. I love the co workers

    Cons

    Pay is minimal damands are ridiculous constantly changing

    Advice to Management

    Treat 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

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Rude 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 Management

    Don't punish your good employees while your bad employees get away with everything.

    Pros

    Provides 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.

    Cons

    No 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 Management

    Fix the crookedness and lack of following of policies and procedures.
