    Fun and friendly environment, but extremely underpaid

    I have been working at Cafe Zupas part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The managers are usually fun, friendly, and motivate you to have fun while working, and co-workers are pretty nice people to work with.

    Cons

    First of all, they promise a raise but it won't happen until the day you put your two weeks in, and even then you won't get much. There is no tip jar and you cannot accept tips. Zupas is NOT clean. As long as everything "looks" clean, you're good. For a minimum wage job, they overwork you demanding perfection and having you get on your knees and clean every corner and scrub the floors, cook, prep soups and food in the back since the chefs almost never cook enough. You must ask for a day off a week and a half in advance, and cannot switch shifts or get your shift covered unless it is an emergency. The only benefit you get is 50% your meal before or after work, and cannot get the discount with a friend or get the meal to-go. And the food is anything but healthy. A meal at McDonalds has less calories than a try 2 at zupas.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The environment is already a nice one to work in, but for the work you demand you have to increase pay. There should be tip jars at every Cafe Zupas. Covering shifts and calling in sick should not be such a problem.
