    I have been working at Back Yard Burgers full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Easy to move up. Free food when you work if you make it to management. Lots of experienced managers to learn from. Get schedule one month in advance. Paid vacation after one year.

    Cons

    Lots of weekends. Little incentive once you make it to management. No raises in over three years. Company has been in bankruptcy and closing stores.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Clean house when needed. Reward those who are actually doing their jobs.

    I have been working at Back Yard Burgers full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Good experience- learned so much.

    Cons

    No work/life balance- employees would call up until close, on days off, etc. No training offered. Was thrown in to the position(s). Will fire over phone from different state because DM is 2 states away.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay your employees what they deserve. It is hard out there in this world. Includes crew AND management (GM!!!)

    It's just a job. Use it to get by. Don't expect much though.

    I have been working at Back Yard Burgers

    Pros

    It is a good atmosphere for a beginer job. It can teach you the fundementals of the food service industry, and give you a working knowledge of fast food .

    Cons

    Low pay scale, minimum wage, no raises or incentives unless you move up to a management position, and then the pay in insufficent for the increase in responsibility.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give your good workers raises and get rid of the "seasonal" help, if you could give your good workers more hours and pay, it would be great.
