    I worked at Moe's Southwest Grill full-time


    The company itself is good. It's a laid back, friendly work environment. However, you're personal experience will vary from store to store because they all have different owners (franchise). Easy first job for high school students, or even college students on break. VERY flexible scheduling. I learned a lot as assistant manager, and have a great reference to put on my resume.


    Not very many opportunities to grow (I got lucky and an opportunity arose for me to work my way up to assistant manager). The location I worked at paid very little for all staff (minimum wage for crew and 9/hour for assistant managers, which was not relative to the amount of work we did), but I've heard that other locations pay a little better.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The employees that show their dedication and desire to be a part of the company should be rewarded for their excellence and hard work. The lack of investment in your staff comes off as a lack of appreciation, and can be extremely discouraging. Rewarding excellence in the work place yields improved customer service, improved employee performance, and ultimately an increase in customer base and sales.
