Pros

You have the satisfaction of making the customer happy and you're able to expand your network. I have received tips from regular customers and a few business cards from customers. Ocassionally you have a fun time working with your co-workers and making new friends.

Cons

The employees are overworked when it is busy. You are expected to do too much on your own and deliver fast service. You do not get recognized for your acheivements very often. If you fail a mystery guest even when you usually do an excellent job you run the risk of getting fired and that is not right. The company demands too much from empoyees with little pay.

    Pros

    Work is fair, you get to help out with others, once you finish cleaning up.

    Cons

    Trying to make sure *everything* is clean before opening, especially when the store opens on your shift, especially with lack of equipment! The district manager has no people skills, not to mention very pushy and rude.

    Advice to Management

    When your local manager decides to not use the "the three strike rule" against an employee, drive it home by warning the local managers themselves are under such rules.

    Make sure that district managers are more friendlier to everyone, especially with employee's families and ex-employees.

    Make sure that maintenance work is listed on a form and time-stamped for each duty done from start to finish because sometimes time goes on, and things are like Sisyphus' boulder.
    Especially when the big-wigs arrive sometime later after the employee in that area is long gone.

    When ordering supplies for the stores, make sure you have competent delivery drivers that get the supplies on time.

    Pros

    The pay is above minimum wage. usually a little slower paced than the other fast food chains.

    Cons

    The only way to make a living off of the pay is to be a Team Leader or above. When working the graveyard shift you dont learn as much but are expected to keep pace with other workers if you are given regular hours (from 6am-10pm). High tension work environment when at rush and when shifts and teams dont communicate. Fast food is never the answer, its practically not even food

    Advice to Management

    Communicate to all of your workers and TRY to remedy the situation instead of talking about the problems and cutting hours when you dont see improvement
