    Not a bad company, if you enjoy a fast pace and learning new skills in their many positions.

    Pros

    I like that they often promote from within. Crosstraining is the key to movng up.

    Cons

    The hours can be too little for a singke income. I found it paud my bills as a bachelor renting a room, though,

    Pros

    Great managers! Endless hours (If you are flexible)

    Cons

    MULTIPLE THINGS! Long hours, (46+HOURS FOR ME) Not flexible ! Inconsiderate when it comes to school! Do Not close until 3am on weekdays and 4am on Weekends which means you're likely to be there for at least 10+hours! In addition they're open EVERY Holiday ! THEY DO NOT OFFER HOLIDAY PAY UNLESS YOURE A MANAGER OR HAVE BEEN THERE FOR AT LEAST 6 MONTHS AND WORKED THE PREVIOUS DAY! So DO NOT EVEN THINK about making plans with family because you are likely to work! Also Rude customers! The store is consistently BUSY BUSY BUSY! They have twin drive troughs and walk ups BUT NOT ENOUGH EMPLOYEES TO COVER EVERYTHING WHICH LEADS TO OVERWHELMING AND A VERY HIGH TURN OVER RATE!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more Considerate to employees who have school/family! At least give them more than one off day per week ! And at least close on the holidays! IN ADDITION PLEASE HIRE MORE EXPERIENCED AND MATURE STORE MANAGERS!

    Pros

    there is nothing good about this company

    Cons

    Company isn't good to the employees, are negligent when it comes to providing a safe environment for employees, management is irresponsible, not good pay, long hours, no respect... i could go on

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Corporate needs to fire a lot of the District and General Managers. Need to be more aware of their store's cleanliness and fix things that are broken. Take responsibility if an employee gets injured because of your negligence.

    Pros

    I can not think of any good reasons to work here other than being desperate for a job and money.

    Cons

    A nasty old store. It's always something broke or down. Messy and childish coworkers. Employees aren't very nice to the customers.

    Pros

    Surrounded by people that work really hard to make a difference. People in the restaurants work VERY hard to get the job done. Fantastic group of franchisees!

    Cons

    The more you do the more that is asked. Cannot trust upper management (speak out of both sides of the mouth).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need transparency! Actions should match the Values you have chosen and constantly speak to (ad nauseam). Your people in the field got you there, you should remember that!
