    I worked at Boston Market full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    I can't think of many other than some of my coworkers were friendly.

    Cons

    You will never want to eat chicken again after working for this company. Their choice in management is horrid and I could not believe the amount of sexual harassment that went on. People showed up to work high on all kinds of things and I'm pretty sure money was stolen from the register on a regular basis. I was so happy to get out of that place.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat people how you want to be treated.

    Pros

    The freedom to make deliveries from any store that you wanted. Great people to work with. Occasionally had to go seek out new customers.

    Cons

    Drivers were not given the delivery tip if the customer ordered online. Only once did I receive a cash tip from a customer, since it was usually easier for them to add it in at the time of the order.

    I worked at Boston Market part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    I had the most fun with this company. I loved pretty much every single coworker, and I have a lot of good memories from there. I felt like I was apart of family at Boston Market. The food was pretty good as well, we always had different specials going on; the "Buy One, Get One Half Off" Saturdays were they best.

    Cons

    I have no "cons" based on the company itself.
