    I have been working at Chicken Express part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Coworkers are not total jerks

    Cons

    Everything else...
    •Manager lied to me and said that I would start at $8.75 as a cook and I'm getting about minimum wage.
    •the floors get very messy and you have to constantly clean the walls, fryers, floors, and even dishes as if your the only one working there.
    >I personally would be able to take all that work if the pay was right.
    •Place smells terrible, and my clothes get batter and flour stuck to them everytime I work, causing me to have to wash my clothes everyday without being given a second shirt...that costs $25!
    •Coworker spilled soap in the flour bucket, saw it and didn't mind it.
    Your best bet is to work somewhere else...TRUST ME, that's what I'm trying to do.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire reputable managers that don't make it their job description to brag about how awesome it is to be a manager and make more money than everyone else while being able to barely have to do anything.

    I have been working at Chicken Express

    Pros

    I truly can't think of any..sorry

    Cons

    The only "con" was working there, there was not a serious preparation on food, flys, dirty fridge, working here will probably turn you into a vegetarian. I'm not kidding.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop acting as if we are all in the same boat because we're. I'm tired of seeing managers for other companies as well act as if you understand when Lord knows you dont
