Pros

They do have a liberal eating policy.

Cons

Higher management deceives employees and eachother.
Change is too often and not thought out.
Criticism is daily, praise is never.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Allow managers to do their job and give an adequate support system. Be more realistic about the outside influences affecting business.

    Pros

    The customers are 99% awesome. Lots of regulars. The food is fairly healthy and varied enough not to be boring. I end up eating at work more times than not, so this is a plus. The stores I have worked in have all had a cheerful ambiance with lots of sunlight.

    Cons

    There are no raises, and for management, there is very, very rarely a bonus. Getting a promotion is nearly impossible, unless you are a predetermined "favorite." Not much positive feedback from management. The corporation and upper management are severe victims of black-and-white thinking. They will "write you up," or even fire you, over nothing. Even giving a good customer a free piece of cornbread once in a blue moon is grounds for an "investigation." I realize you can't have people giving the store away, but a little more leeway for the managers would be nice. This corporation has a very stingy way of conducting business, when a more generous heart toward both customers and employees would undoubtedly make them more successful.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    GM's, stop being negative and condescending. Catering, communicate with stores. AM, recognize and utilize individual talent. Everyone, get a clue!

    Pros

    Managers take your personal life into consideration when making schedules. Work as much and as often as you want. If you want to become a manager one day, they will groom you if you show some potential. Good training, and friendly atmosphere make going to work kinda fun!

    Cons

    No real serious cons to address. Bottom line is that this is a fast food joint so you should expect fast food joint-type experiences. Customers will complain about things you sometimes cannot control (What do you mean you do not serve french fries!). If you show up to work and do your job, you will not be fired. Show some desire to move up and you just might get your shot.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You're gonna have to take a hard look at the menu fellas! There is alot of room to exploit this healthy eating trend that everyone is crazy about and its just not being explored. You have the cape but just cant seem to fly! Get some ads on tv talking about how healthy your food is. It is a good alternative to some of the junk out there. But overall, mid level, regional, and store managers seem to be doing a good job.
