Pros

This company is a great company and develops their people to the fullest of their abilities. The salary was very good and above normal. I made a base of 60K and I was told that I was one of the highest paid GM's but I know most make at least 45K-50K.

I would highly recommend this company to anyone looking for a great career.

I don't work there anymore because of personal reasons.

Cons

Communication could be better. More follow-up and hands on from management.

Advice to Management

Give someone a chance to right their mistakes if they make one.

    Pros

    Lots of overtime due to turnover. Management has no choice but to allow it.
    Health insurance (after 1year).
    Lots of Hispanic people work there, so if you speak only Spanish you will be in good company.

    Cons

    Single shift 7- 8am to around 3 -4pm - no break, no lunch. Double shift 7 -8am to closing (11pm-12+am) - you can clock out for 30 minutes, still no breaks.
    Management rides you to move faster and faster, it's always HURRY UP!! HURRY UP!! You can't move fast enough.

    Advice to Management

    Offer employees a lunch break to eat if they put in an 8 hour shift. If they work a double shift of 14-16 hours, give them at least an hour for lunch. A typical American worker is going to expect at least that.

    Pros

    Great half priced food, o.k. benefits, mostly safe working environment.

    Cons

    Horrible management, strictly the 'higher-ups,' illegal immigrants being taken away by the immigration officers, no holiday pay.

    Advice to Management

    Managers make the most money for being the most responsible, that doesn't mean don't work because you're a boss. Public criticism is not a good way to motivate loyalty and progress.
