    2002 this was the best place that any general manager would love to work at. But in 2008 it all went down hill.

    General Manager (Former Employee)

    ProsGood benefits good pay bonus are good and hourly pay now.

    ConsLeadership change and it's not worth working there anymore.

    Advice to Senior ManagementIf you want vacaciones you need to save labor ahead to take time off.

    Good first job.

    Cashier (Current Employee)
    Aurora, CO

    ProsThe people around you have a great attitude that you will not regret applying here. The leadership that the shift leaders gain is very satisfying because they take there job seriously and help out the cashiers with any help that is needed. The assistant manager takes so many risks at the job site that he should get a promotion to become GM.

    ConsSometimes the client's will complain for no reason whatsoever just to get free food for most of the time. When it gets busy, people tend to complain on why their order has taken so long and they make us cashiers feel slow and not focused.

    Advice to Senior Managementinclude more people in the start of the morning shift so that the cashier who opens doesn't feel stressed out doing everything.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
