    Pros

    Good food. Great people to work with. Great atmosphere inside of restaurants. Good amount of hours for part-time workers. The morning shifts.

    Cons

    Fast pace working environment for low pay. Limited number of full-time employees. Constant change in management. Tips are shared equally between front-end employees.

    Advice to Management

    Allow servers to receive own tips. Allow different rules for different franchises. Look to hire long-term, committed managers. Allow more growth for employees (both salary and promotion).

    Pros

    50% discount on a meal if you are working The other S/A's and rest of crew are pretty cool The food is delicious. Cross-training opportunities for other positions, i.e., cashier, expo. They train you for barista too. Everyone has to know that. Very good at working with schedules though, they try to be flexible and understanding.

    Cons

    If you're an SA, you are basically upkeep. So, you serve orders but you also are constantly cleaning. Sweeping, cleaning windows, wiping and refilling condiments and beverages, cleaning restrooms, etc. Even though you're cross-trained, you still keep the SA title. It's also quick-service. You are constantly in speedy motion. Sometimes the managers breathe down your neck.

    Advice to Management

    Beware of micromanaging; it's very very bad and annoying.

    Pros

    this place was a good full time place to work easy nice work load alright pay.good chance at working many stations.

    Cons

    going from full time to part time was bad they go from giving you alot of hours to no hours in the matter of a week. you go and tell them you still want to work and they give you 5 maybe 8 hours a week not worth anyone's time then act surprised when you put in the two week notice. they want you to help around the store but then get mad cause you doing stuff they told you to do but are not trained for cause they didnt train you??

    Advice to Management

    if you want some one to help out more train them first then ask for extra help dont take it on on staff for no knowing how to do stuff you didnt train them for.
