Pros

If you have a manager that actually cares about you, you'll do great. Time flies because of the amount of work needed to be finished.

Cons

New manager (poor character). Understaffed at some locations so you may have be expected to cook, clean, serve & ring guests up (alot of work).

Advice to ManagementAdvice

You should really get to know the people you hire to be store-managers aka listen to the co-workers and pay attention to their body language. Maybe even sneak a peek at the cameras once in awhile. The worst thing to have done to me was be harassed publicly and constantly while working. It truly does bring down the image of your company.

    Pros

    There's really nothing great about working here, except that where I actually work there are a number of good hardworking employees. The pay start is pretty good for a fast food and part time job.

    Cons

    The worst part about working here if you get lucky, are the managers. They all seem very lazy and always seems to be making up excuses to not help out at the stores. I mean yes they maybe doing managerial stuff but it can't be everyday every hour?! If you are lucky enough to work with any manager here that will actually be at the store everyday that they are scheduled then you got a good working manager. They all seem cool at first but as you continue working you learn that some of the things you are taught to do are actually the WRONG thing to do. So they are hypocrites and not very honest. The schedules are not even flexible and i do not know about all the other stores but the one i work at there are not even enough employees available to cover anyone's shift if they happen to call in sick or can't make it a day. They work your ass off while they get it easy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire better managers that are willing to get their hands dirty and actually doing their jobs please!
