I wouldn't recommend this place to people I know even though I love their food.

Customer Service (Former Employee) San Francisco, CA

ProsI love their food and I can't think of any other good reason.

ConsThey give a schedule and showed up to work and they cut your hours and send you home early or change your schedule without having the courtesy of calling you to let you know they change your starting time. They hire just about anybody to manage the place even if they can barely speak English and uneducated. The last manager I had was so annoying with an irritating voice and trying to catch you in the smallest mistake you make to get in your case and get you in trouble and eventually fired you. Make sure they'll put you to work in the position that you applied for because I applied for a customer service position and they put me to work in production in the back when I clearly applied for a front customer service position.

Advice to Senior ManagementManagers need more training in treating all the employees fairly and stop playing favors and not to use their position just to fire people and give more and better hours to your buddies.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
