    Pros

    Great Pay, Great Benefits, co-workers were easy to get along with. They make you feel like family the minute you walk through that door.

    Cons

    The Store Manager was not very friendly.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I no longer work there because Our manager was closing all month to show us how to do things properly, which he didnt even know how to do things the right way. I had to show him. Well he insisted on taking apart the fry warmer and he got it stuck. so I said "I can do it, since i do this every night" well he didnt take off the fry ribbon because he didnt feel like he needed to, and when i pulled up the back of the fry warmer the fry ribbon fell off and the whole thing fell on my hand, which put me out of work for a couple of days and I lost my job due to it.
