I have been working at Johnny Rockets part-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Chill, managers are nice, supportive co workers. Fun place where people come for an experience not just food. Opportunity to become a manager and work your way up. Helpful managers, they want you to do well and will help you achieve that. Very very flexible schedule, easy to manage life and work.

Cons

Cheap menu which leads to smaller tips, as well as no alcohol. In the downtown mall so the crowd thy comes to eat there is a little rough and bad tippers.

    Pros

    It was a good environment to learn and grow as a new manager. The concept is simple, the menu is small, and the operation is overall easy to run.

    Cons

    The franchise owner(s)/partners only look out for themselves. Severe problems with nepotism, false hope about future opportunities to advance, and mislead about earning bonuses.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    New clean restaurant.
    New equipment.
    Co workers seem peppy.
    Up beat music in background all the time.
    Pay was decent for the job.

    Cons

    Little direction.
    Paycheck bounced.
    W2 came back with wrong social on it.
    Hired too many people at once then layed most off.
    No positive feed back. Only got corrected when I did something wrong.

    Suddenly was not scheduled any more, called for a few weeks, came in physically, was told yes I still have a job, but continued to not be on the schedule. The excuse was that there were simply no hours because the store was slow. After 4 weeks I just considered myself cut off and began looking for other employment. I have not received a call to this day to let me know anything.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Quit over hiring.
    Be clear about the positions you offer Temp/Seasonal/PT?????
    Just tell me to leave if you don't need me.
    Some people really need theses jobs, don't string them around.

    Doesn't Recommend
