    Pros

    -Free food on breaks
    -Free drinks
    -nothing else crosses my mind

    Cons

    -Assisstant managers are usually lazy
    -Not enough training beforehand
    -Unreasonable expectations
    -Some employees & the manager talk down to you
    -One time I was on break and it was getting busier so the asst. manager made me work in the middle of my break.
    -Another time, me and the asst. manager were working the front and he left to do something during rush hour. So it was just me for a good 15 minutes with about 15-20 customers in line.

    Advice to Management

    Have more people working the front. It's nearly impossible to serve food, take orders, clean messes, and ring up orders all at the same time.

    Shorten the interview times! 4 rounds of interviews for a temp position?
