    Pros

    It can be fun interacting with customers and improving management skills. The food is quite good and a free meal a day is just what the doctor ordered.

    Cons

    The wages are quite low the hours were long and the store was generally understaffed. Managing a bunch of high school kids get's quite old after awhile.

    Pros

    The boss love to get good raises and the co- workers are awesome. I love that u can advance fast. And u do can get the best u can at this job.

    Cons

    It take a year to get a raise. Its hard to get where u want. Managers like to always be on point and are not respectable but overall a good place to work

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Current Employee - Cashier/Cook in Prattville, AL

    Pros

    some of the people I work with are nice and our regular customer love to come in and talk to us or joke around with us

    Cons

    Getting your evaluation and not getting a raise because its based on what other people are doing or not doing. So If the store Im working in has people that are not being productive then that reflects on me and there is nothing I can do outside of talking to that person or persons and if they still don't change it affects my pay check.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    work on promoting your current employees instead of hiring outside help

    Minimum wage job

    Former Employee - Shift Manager
    Former Employee - Shift Manager

    Pros

    Ideal for college students or as an in-between job. Depending on where you work, you might be entitled to a discounted meal. Easy learning curve. Potential for maximizing hours if you simply do you work properly.

    Cons

    Management styles are typically the same. Many times you'll face hypocritical/unethical managers (make sure to report them). The tasks are tedious and boring at times. You'll feel over-worked and underpaid most of the time. Don't make this a career choice unless you have no other options.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat employees fairly. Don't pick favorites. Avoid unethical management styles or you could face termination. I should know - I reported my unethical manager and he was soon under investigation.

    Former Employee - Cashier in Las Vegas, NV

    Pros

    There really arent any. This was a part time job for me to save extra money. However, the employees who were there trying to support themselves were left with a paycheck that could barely pay for car insurance because of the hours.

    Cons

    not very accomadating with schedule, but only give 20 - 24 hours a week????What is that all about? How can you support yourself on that?

    Pros

    Pay and perks (VIP box, shows, discounts to theme parks).

    Cons

    Extremely political. Get in good with people by watching the same tv shows and caring about their vacations.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Loosen up.

    Pros

    You get exceptional experience in working at a fast paced fast food restaurant. I really enjoyed working the backline, I liked making the sandwiches.

    Cons

    I would say the cons would be that you would have to have a lot of patience when working their very fast paced drive thru, and I must have been very good at it because I was always put there.
