    Pros

    You're always challenged to learn and grow as the company evolves. No one is ever bored or not being pushed to be developed or grow.

    Cons

    Not crazy about how the health benefits recently changed and the much higher plan deductibles. HSA is good.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Follow the Company Values when making decisions about the growth and direction of the Brand. They often preach one thing and then do another.

    Pros

    Great teamwork. This company gives you the environment to thrive and learn to do many things beyond your specialty, if desired.

    Cons

    Changed the health benefits recently to a plan with a much higher deductible. Franchisees are not always well screened resulting in challenges for the filed operations teams.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find a direction and stay with it. The menu development side and PR are all over the place.

    Pros

    My coworkers are definitely the pros about working here, we are friends and family and have a blast working together.

    Cons

    The cons about working here is that it's franchise owned which means your owner can be really cool or really terrible and they're not obligated to give raises. Some of the people I work with that have gotten hired after me has received a raise and I haven't. Also corporate is very sometimes overly picky.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When promoting someone length of employment, knowledge of the job, etc. should be taken into consideration. I've been here for over a year and very qualified for a raise and promotion and people less qualified with less time have been promoted and gotten raises.

    Crew leader, no advances in job or pay available.

    Pros

    Good experience with customer service, pacing, very laid-back, and works with school schedules.

    Cons

    Extremely rude people, three years of working and my pay was capped at 8.50,

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You should not cap your employees at such a low rate, need more ways to move up in the company, better transition with merging companies, and you need to make your employees feel more valued in the company.
