    I worked at Cheeseburger in Paradise full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    I really enjoyed taking care of our guests. Gluten-free menu was outstanding. I was given the opportunity to hire and train over 200 staff members.

    Cons

    Buyout by Lubys changed many things. Many of the freedoms to take care of the guests were no longer available which hurt our guest retention.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Trust the managers at the store level to continue to take care of the guests.

    Pros

    Fun atmosphere, liked my co-workers, good food

    Cons

    There was often too many of us scheduled at once that we would end up just getting cut for the night or standing around with no tables

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Once you started making us wear name tags, I felt like the product of a corporate company.

    Pros

    Managing Partner opportunities allow you to be in charge of your destiny

    Cons

    Occasionally unrealistic budgets set forth, they often did not understand the differences in customers and spending habbits from region to region

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your management team more, if you had enough faith to hire them in the 1st place then have enough faith to believe that sometimes they may know things that you don't

    Pros

    great environment, good food, awesome co-workers.

    Cons

    not much business, dirty, unsanitary cooks, not well-ran, open extremely late, very low pay.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    make the hours 11:30-10 during the week and 11:30-11 on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays. Maybe even close for a couple of hours during the day when they are not busy. Advertise more; put more signs on the street behind the building instead of just the one facing the freeway, letting people know what and where it is. Do not have so many employees on the clock at once. only use the absolute necessary amount, because there are usually an excessive amount of people working at once.

    Pros

    I cannot think of one. The people are nice, other employees that is, not management.

    Cons

    No sick days. If you call in sick you risk getting fired immediately. No benefits, no praise, only negative insults aimed at you from management. Management will make your sections smaller, give you extra sidework and generally make it so you will not make any money if they think you cross them. They keep everyone under 32 hours a week so they do not have to pay benefits. This company also makes you tip out 3% of your sales back to the restaurant.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your employees better and your business will flourish.
