  • The best thing about working here is literally only the free food you get at break time if that (in 244 reviews)

  • This being the case they have flexible hours and are willing to work around your schedule (in 199 reviews)


Cons
  • As you should expect, every crew member was at or very near the minimum wage level (in 156 reviews)

  • There are very long hours that do seem to get in the way of my social life (in 104 reviews)

    Easy job to learn, easy to advance, this company is very flexible with your schedule, Leaders encourage their staff to advance in higher positions when they see you are applying yourself.

    Cons

    Some of the challenges are late or long hours when others do not show up, at times when business is slow your hours per week can be lower than usual.

    Pros

    I love my employees they are all so nice and we all work together very well.

    Cons

    your feet hurt so bad, but they say you get used to it in a week or so! I hope that is true!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My managers are all very nice and very helpful because I am training! I hope that I get the hang of everything very soon so they won't have to help me and I won't make any mistakes! They say I am doing really good even though I have made a few mistakes.. but I have only been working for 5 days! Haha! I really love my job and the managers make it an even better experience because they are all very great people!

    Pros

    The best thing about working here is the opportunity for advancement.

    Cons

    There are plenty of people who obtain this job to try and just collect a pay check instead of to work for their paycheck.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Just stick to the rules and do not let people get away with things that compromise the management or company.
