    Pros

    Very flexible, Paid Time Off, Great Food

    Cons

    A lot of changes to policies. Some managers not too nice to crew members.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reducing the script due to too many customers giving dirty looks or complaining about all the upselling and sounding like flight attendants. (Guest actually told me that).

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

    Pros

    The 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.

    Cons

    Sometimes 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 ManagementAdvice

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