    Pros

    Normal management job corporate calling every shot

    Cons

    Rules change weekly the owner just sold all shares and resigned to a gentlemen from another country that most likely can change things for the better since old ideas were stuck for decades

    Advice to Management

    Don't take a management job expect to work 65 hours a week on salary and they tell you only 50

    I have been working at Big Boy Restaurants part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Friendly people, usually pretty busy. I was a bus boy/dishwasher. The pay was minimum wage at the time.

    Cons

    The challenges of being a bus boy/dishwasher at Big Boy were making sure that you keep all of your dishes clean in a timely fashion or else the cooks would have nothing to serve their food on.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work
