    Pros

    Fast paced and co workers are mostly friendly. Return customers that you get to know.
    Shift leaders up to GM are generally hands on depending on the area.

    If you have a major problem with how things are run the contact number given will randomly generate to a corporate higher up.( I got the vice CEO i believe)

    Very flexible scheduled for employees

    Cons

    minimum wage (had a coworker that had been there for 16+ years and had completed TMTP book and only just got a raise to like 8.50).
    VERY HIGH employee turn over due to several changes in policy and low wages/pay.

    District Manager level and above will listen to employee ideas but you can easily see in their eyes that they think your just trying to to complain. ( As i have had happen all the way up to my regional manger).

    Opening employee (cause there is only 1 until 9) will have to juggle slicing all the meat and baking all the necessary food for the day and on the weekend there will be nearly triple the amount of stuff to do.

    No fixed work schedules make balancing fair hours with worker experience and time of day very difficult. i.e. an anticipated rush at 4:30 (it always happens to us) and there are 2 employees and 1 manager, one employee is trained to do just about everything in the environment, the manager had to step out, and the other employee can only due front line register. The first employee gets the extreme honor of handling back line,fryer expediting and drive-thru.).

    Hot environment (recommend lots of water.)

    May be sent on forced break with in ten minutes of clocking in.

    Advice to Management

    Help your employees and let them help you. if you have a person in backroom let them focus on the stuff their back there to do so it gets done.

    Teach employees to slightly bend day dot stickers so that there easier to remove and to remove them BEFORE putting them in the dish water to avoid the gunk the is left behind.

    If hiring manager tell the truth about the extreme rarity and low chances of pay increase and promotion

    Pros

    I love my crew and smiling all the time. You have to be a people person to work at a "fast food" place. My favorite line when a customer tells me it was fast getting it out is "we don't call is fast food for nothin!"

    Cons

    Hateful customers! But I always bounce back! Grease isn't the best and we were dark uniforms in any weather but hey it pays the bills.

    Advice to Management

    Keep your head up.

    Pros

    You get a 50% discount on food.

    Cons

    Poor organization, they never can keep a full crew, if your a sandwich maker you are probably going solo through lunch rush because they only hire minors and minors can't work the sandwich line. They also only give vacations if you've been working 40 plus hours per week all year but they only give you part time hours.

    Advice to Management

    Stop taking so many vacations and start making sure your employees are doing good first. Stop coming up with new sandwiches and make sandwich line move more efficiently.
