    Pros

    Very Flexible hours and nice management. The jobs are pretty easy and depending on the manager you might get to take home food.

    Cons

    The starting pay is minimum wage. Your pay can go up over time but not very much. After six months you might get a small raise.

    Pros

    Flexible work schedule and great Christian values. Never open on a Sunday. They always try to promote from within the company.

    Cons

    Very little pay unless you are a general manager or owner. I was in management for 3 years and my male counterparts always made a significant amount more than I did.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better pay!!!

    Pros

    Great Hours and holiday hours and Sundays off
    Nice and Friendly Management
    Friendly Customers
    Work effort from other employees
    Potential available promotions

    Cons

    The worst part about working here is the rude customers and the fast food. Many customers believe they are the only customers that need to be served and are rude about their experience.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look at team member's effort to promote. Not from experience.
