    Pros

    Good Manager training program. You will learn a lot about the restaurant industry if you pay attention and seek out information even after training. Leadership means well.

    Cons

    Rude, snobby and cheap customers that expect the world and don't want to pay for it. Disrespectful employees who don't keep up with their appearance and treat managers bad. HR dept. is so afraid of lawsuits they take the side of employees instead of having managers' backs. Constant random updates/promotions/policy-changes that are time consuming and have small pay off. Low pay for good employees, tons of red tape for the smallest things. No room to move up, most positions are already spoken for when they open up, seniority is heavily considered for promotions.

    Advice to Management

    If you put a manager in place, have their back. Stop with the extra stuff that has nothing to do with the operations.

    Pros

    Good focus on brand and menu knowledge so you know the answers when customers ask questions, and you can make suggestions. Overall positive work environment depending on co-workers.

    Cons

    Inflexibility of schedule makes it difficult to get time off when needed, having to beg coworkers to pick up shifts is very stressful & there is a lot of pressure to work for other employees that need time off.

    Advice to Management

    Although all employees are replaceable, it's better not to look at them that way. Appreciate your staff giving as much as they can to the company instead of being disappointed that they can't give more.

    Pros

    The money flow is great, and the people are friendly. However, in slow times it can be hard. The hours are flexible and if all is right, most people are team players. This company emphasizes the team player aspect.

    Cons

    Can be very fast paced during rush hours, and as in any restaurant, but can be stressful to those not adapted for that pace. It can cause chaos and although the seating is in a fair rotation, sometimes it causes some of the workers to fight over areas or parties. The management can sometimes be non sympathetic to needs of the workers (sick/car failure/family emergency).

    Advice to Management

    There is always change in management to accommodate the needs of each location. Being there long term, it was hard to adjust each time. Some management team excelled, where others fail, because of different views. Most do what is best for each store. However, there is a common issue with personal issues. It was run as a buisness, as it should be, but some long term associates were not given the compassion for major issues that was needed (moving/hard times, etc). I encourage all management to be more sympathetic to the needs of their workers. Not all, but some did not take the time to review any details of any cases.

    Pros

    Depending on the restaurant the team atmosphere can be really good. Most management is very supportive.

    Cons

    Not all restaurants are run the same. Some are better than others. Burn out is bound to happen in any serving job.
