    I have been working at Braum's full-time

    Pros

    Great co-workers, fairly easy job. Customers can be decent. A lot of variety in both daily events and duties.

    Cons

    Poor training. Most trainees are told "here, let this person walk you through some things." Basically, you get out what you put in. If you're self-motivated and competitive, you'll do well. If you want to zombie your way through your shift and earn your paycheck, this may not be the place for you. (Braum's Corporate doesn't comp hours for new hirees. Managers have to simultaneously control labour and train newbies....not fun for anyone)
    Policies change often. Either management changes (which happens frequently), corporate changes their mind, or District/Regional Managers change their minds...long story short. Policy is policy for a short amount of time, and then it changes, often unexpectedly.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take the time to adequately train your employees. Corporate should comp hours for new hirees to ensure adequate training. Otherwise the newbies are forced into doing dishes or busing tables because it takes too long to teach them to do things, and corporate demands an 85% speed of service.

    I worked at Braum's full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The management at my store was amazing. I started in high school at a young age and worked my way up through college eventually into the management team. Tons of opportunity for advancing. Very decent pay. Everyone was literally like one big family, even our truck drivers and customers.

    Cons

    Too much gossip within management team.

    Pros

    Yummy food all around you. Smells really good and is so tempting!

    Cons

    Sporadic hours, might call you at the last minute and tell you to take the day off. Might give you a certain amount of hours during a day but if it isn't busy enough they may send you home after an hour or 2. Lots of standing and walking/jogging around, feet get very tired.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pretty good management. Sometimes they were immature to work with though.

    I worked at Braum's part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The food is fresh, good quality and tastes good. I love their icecream. The compensation is not bad for a starting part-time job. The restaurant is kept clean and organized.

    Cons

    Employees must be able to stand on your feet a long time. At times it gets very busy and everyone has to work extremely fast. Some employees do take enough initiative and so others are doing both jobs at once.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep rewarding the hard working employees. Treat employees well and they are more likely to perform well.

    Pros

    Best crew I ever worked with. Trained employees in every position so there will always be coverage. Really good first job.

    Cons

    Standing for long hours, only 30 minute lunch breaks, some days there are all day food rushes

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work. Be careful who you hire, some people want to be paid to do nothing. Weed the lazy workers out before they're even hired. Saves all that time wasted from training and getting them into the system.
