I worked at Potbelly Sandwich Works full-time (more than an year)

Pros

Great atmosphere for regular employees, lots of fun. Uniforms are comfortable, reasonable hours, good food, too.

Cons

Benefits don't kick in until after a year of full time, which can be difficult to achieve the right number of hours. Moving up in the company can make you feel like a trained monkey

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Don't take advantage of your employees. Use their talents, don't exploit their desire for promotion

    I have been working at Potbelly Sandwich Works full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    being a shift manager in college is awesome. Paid well with decent benefits. company does a good job keeping associate happy. They will bend over backwards to keep associates happy so they can avoid turnover.

    Cons

    when you become Gm or higher the corporate staff expects you to work only 50 hours a week but that quickly becomes way more when they cut your labor hours. District manager and above wants you to accomplish tasks with small budget, associates that soon realized they can be lazy and wont get fired, while working some nights a week.
