    The first and worst job I ever had!!!

    Crew Member (Former Employee) Nampa, ID

    Pros-You get 50% discount on food when you work!
    -Really good food!
    -A really nice Manager

    Cons-Favoritism
    -Low pay
    -Difficult customers
    -No tips( If you got a $10-25 tip they would tell you they will have to pay you $3.25 because your getting tips! Which I think is bs )
    -Rude co-workers that talk behind your back
    -Often get sent home early on slow nights
    -Promise to raise you wage and they don't!
    -Assistant Managers are really rude!
    -Overwork you like a donkey!

    Advice to Senior Management-Respect the employee you take for granted! (Some of us are really hard workers, and other lazies)
    -Talk to the employees when they quit if you can! (Empathy)
    -Tell other employees to stop being rude to one and another!!!
    -DON'T PROMISE YOU'LL RAISE WAGE AND GIVE HIM/HER PROMOTION!!! ( I hate when they don't keep their promise!)
    -SAY PLEASE AND THANK YOU! AND GREET THE CUSTOMERS!!!

    One of the worst jobs ever.

    Cashier (Current Employee) Bakersfield, CA

    Pros-Friendly co-workers
    -Discount on food
    -Easy to get hired

    Cons-Management is terrible. They are rude and inconsiderate.
    -There is always a lack of supplies.
    -If you're a cashier, you get the worst end of this job. You get yelled at by unsatisfied customers for the mistakes of the cooks.
    -The management doesn't care about you at all.
    -Management doesn't report injuries, then tells you to "Stop over exaggerating."
    -Harassment is unavoidable in this job, upper management will not care and yell at you ANYWHERE.

    Advice to Senior ManagementYou should really treat your employees with respect , if you want it in return. Guess this is what you get when you don't pursue further education.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    upper management SUCKS.

    Crew Member (Former Employee) Chino, CA

    ProsCoworkers are usually fun to work with
    Learn spanish from cooks
    Easy job to land
    once you've been gain the respect of shift leaders, you have ALOT of leeway ;)

    ConsUppermanagement is terrible. They do NOT care about you AT ALL. I had ONE GM that was awesome. I had three total.
    You're SUPPOSED to get a raise every year. my last year there they decided to throw out a HUGE middle finger to all the loyal employees and say no raises. One girl got fired for not offering an upsize on ONE order. You kidding me?

    Advice to Senior ManagementStop being so greedy. Notice how chick fil a and innout are so successful? they actually care about the customer and you dont. They are ALOT more generous with both employees and customers.
    Happy Employee = MUCH more sales.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Prosmeet people, learn to work at a fast pace and make decisions quickly. definitely become more outgoing after doing this for a while

    Consrules are always broken, pay is bad, no benefits depending on if you are corporate owned or franchised owned, crazy stuff happens between employees. basically the employees make the job harder than it has to be.
