Pros

Rubio’s has a wonderful family environment that surrounds you with support and people that genuinely care about the success of the company.
The food is awesome!
The people are awesome!
During the hiring process, I was very impressed that Rubio’s allowed much of the department staff to take part in the interview process and allow employees to give their input about the potential employees.
Bonus opportunity based on overall Rubio's performance.
Good benefits.

Cons

I had hoped that the corporate office would have a built in Rubio’s Restaurant... unfortunately that is not the case but then again it isn't a requirement. On the other hand, there are 2 Rubio’s locations within 5 minutes, and there is often treats, leftovers from meetings and other surprises when it comes to food. Still, would love to not have to leave the office to take lunch.
The drive is a little longer than desired but I knew that when I signed up.
No definite advancement opportunities, but we'll see what the future holds.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Continue to do what you are doing. Allow new employees to contribute to their retirment immediately even if their is no match by the employer until after their 1 year anniversary. Continue to hold employees accountable

    Pros

    the location is close to my house. THAT IS THE ONLY PRO

    Cons

    -they only give you 4 hours a week. I earn 8.25. who can live off of 33 (before tax) per week? I told them I was available at any time that they needed me, especially holidays, weekends, mornings, and nights. I told them I would plan my whole summer around my work schedule. and what do they give me? 1 shift a week

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    what is rubio's? fast food? you are wasting time and money by attempting to provide service to customers. san diego is flooded with mexican restaurants, so you need to differentiate yourself from the cheap authentic mexican restaurants on every street corner
    Managers need to listen to their employees. instead of yelling at them
