    Easy Money

    Cashier (Current Employee) Saint Joseph, MO

    ProsAs an overnight cashier with one of the local 24-hour restaurants, I am earning easy money for very little necessary input. I interact with the customers taking orders and giving out product and then spend my downtime doing some cleaning, stocking, and prepping for the next shift.

    ConsIrresponsible Management at my restaurant leads to problems with scheduling and inventory stocking. The store manager pushes the responsibilities off to the shift leaders to put together the weekly schedules and with so many individuals inputting and adjusting information, the schedule has a tendency to not get out until the first day or after of the new work week. As someone who needs to schedule for babysitters, this is not an ideal situation. Also, inventory is not efficiently tracked and ordered so some weeks we run out of things because someone just didn't know that an item was needed so they didn't order more of that product at all.

    Advice to Senior ManagementManagement needs to take more responsibility for their positions. Tossing around responsibilities and not handling the job like they should (shift schedules delayed until after new work week starts....) has a negative effect on everyone in the workplace.

    The Franchise wheel is broke. Corporate should look beyond the smiles/smoke

    Restaurant General Manager (Former Employee) Columbus, OH

    ProsExcellent brand name and products.

    ConsLack accountability and follow-up with training on the franchise side. Thus, high turnovers in hourly/management. The consumer receives luke warm if lucky product and service.

    Assistant manager

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsThe people you work with are interesting in their own way and if you work there long enough you get a vacation.

    ConsYou work hard and others get credit for it. No real growth in company.

    Advice to Senior ManagementRealize who are real team players and show some type of appreciation. When evaluating one person put it towards that one individual not try and put others down fall on them. Promote when it is due.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
