I worked at Checkers Drive-In

Pros

Some of the employees worked very hard to do their job right and make things run smoother
The procedures are sound if taught and implemented correctly

Cons

frequent call outs
no sense of responsibility for actions, there were several times I wrote employees up for no call no shows or improper behavior only to have my store manager throw them away
unfair and unequal treatment of employees
store manager played favorites often with the worst performers just because she liked them
District Manager had no idea what was really going on in the store and often screamed at employees in from of customers
unrealistic expectations virutally impossible to run a double drive thru with one manager and two employees especially since turnover was so high that often one of the two employees was brand new
Condition of building was dreadfull, when it rained there was water dripping over several food serving stations
If we didn't make sales we were expected to stay open untill we did and we were already open till 2am and on the weekends 4am
Too little pay for such high expectations
Basically trained for one day and then left alone to manage a store with mostly brand new employees
no positive feedback too much focus on what you do wrong instead of what you do correctly and most of the things I did correctly I trained myself to do because I studied the training manual on my oown time

Advice to ManagementAdvice

I watched the episode of Undercover Boss where they visited Mobile, Alabama and I still think the CEO has no clue how bad things are. I have never considered leaving a job without proper notification but one day after almost a year of tolerating what I can only describe as abuse by my DM and Store manager I stayed through lunch but after that day I had had enough and never came back from break. Stop promoting people just because they have hung around for a long time. Many people just stay because no one has the wisdom to fire them not because they are good at their job. The employees worth keeping won't stay in a toxic environment and that probably explains your high turnover.
