    Pros

    Set schedule if you're in management and flexible hours. Almost any request off is honored.

    Cons

    Lowest pay. They'll try to pay you $8.00 for a shift supervisor and try to get you to do manager salary work. No gratitude for any of your work, schedule you back to back closing to opening and they never honor their after every 6 months "review" for a raise. I only got a 50 cent raise after 2 years. They gave another girl who had been working there for 4 years a 15 cent raise...just terrible.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Happy employees only benefit the only thing you care about, your bonuses. Stop ridiculously high turnover by actually paying your employees what they deserve and praise them for good work instead of berating them in front of customers.

    Pros

    Discounts on food purchases.
    Experience in food service industry.
    Variety of work jobs and assignments which can fit the individual.

    Cons

    Multiple skills and responsibilities are not recognized. Salary does not reflect an individual who has been trained on multiple modules or is capable of filling in for others in multiple different tasks.
    Must befriend one of the multiple managers to hope to advance or earn respect.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Require management to report or list areas of store which workers are trained or certified.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Positive Outlook
