    I worked at Boston Market part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The work is easy; management cares about you, and is flexible with your personal scheduling needs. Friendly conversations with regular customers, free drinks, and the delicious smells of fresh vegetable stuffing and sweet corn.

    Cons

    There is a LOT of cleaning that needs to be done. If you are on dish-washing shift, expect six to eight hours of filthy, chicken-covered, sauce-slathered dishes to clean in deep sinks in the back. Your fingers will be wrinkled and pruny for hours to come. Also, irate customers when the company takes an item off the menu.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Maybe really consider what the customers want on the menu, rather than what you think will sell.

    Pros

    Working Part Time offers a bit of flexibility. Most I've had the please sure working with have have nice.

    Cons

    A small number of the store Managers need to adjust their mindsets before walking through the door. They should also learn how to speak with employees with the same caring they do with customers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remember that those under your employ have a choice to work at your store. If you experience high turnover, remember, people don'y leave jobs, they leave employers - YOU.
