As long as you love them, they love you. When you screw up, then your expendable.

Pros

Fun atmosphere, high standards, good money, free meals, good benefits, teaches you a lot about management and Speed of service

Cons

Long hours, very high expectations, constant pressure to move up (get promoted)

Upper management makes their money by promoting people through their "pipeline". Whether those people are ready for the promotion or not, isnt their concern. if you are,, then good for you, if you screw up, then they blame you for not knowing how to do you job.

Advice to Management

I was used as a scapegoat by my area manager, to avoid loosing his job, he blamed me but lied about it to me face. Granted, this is only ONE area manager, but the lesson is, be careful who you put your faith in.

    Free food every day you work
    Good morals (food with integrity)
    Supports your community by making fund raisers and making coupons only available at local events.
    Wants YOUR friends to work there
    Teaches you real culinary skills and proper food handling
    Provides employees with a lot of benefits

    Cons

    It's a lot of hard work, Not recommended for someone collecting a check.
    The company will fire you if you don't want to move up after a certain amount of time once in management
    It's one of those jobs that need to be taken seriously, it's a team effort. One weak link, and your day is going to suck.
    High pressure job, people seem to get very dramatic when things start to get tense
    Makes you look silly because you take a fast food job seriously hahaha

    Advice to Management

    Keep Rocking guys! You guys are making a huge difference!
