    Pros

    Some experienced employees are helpful as are associate managers and shift supervisors.

    Cons

    Terribly disorganized, managers have hair triggers and are aloof to new employees. Additional duites are piled on while still expecting you to perform your current duites (and the extra) in the alloted time frame. New hires are not treated well, which is surprising since one would think they would care about employee retention. No points for having a brain, mental maturity and a willingness to go the extra mile.
    There is a weekly hourly labor limit that they don't tell you about when hired, so don't expect full time employment. You can expect to be sent home in the middle of a shift because of this limit.
    No matter how fast you move, they will expect you to move faster.

    Advice to Management

    Get down off your high horses and remember how you started out in the company: as a worker bee. Don't treat all your employees as if they are high school kids incapable of higher thought processes. Make certain all shifts leave things ready, stocked and prepped for the shift that follows. And get rid of your really stupid rule about no garbage going out after dark!
    It makes NO sense that food preparers are tasked with taking out the garbage for the entire restaurant before they even begin their work.
