Pros

The chance to give great customer service, daily cash.

Cons

NASTY and uneducated co-workers, mostly drug users, immoral, with nasty habits. Psychopathic, perimenopausal female managers with a rage on for no actual reason.

Advice to Management

STOP listening to sociopaths like a certain female manager in the orlando area....like you were doing back in 08. She got rid of every decent server you had! Kept the drug-using, illiterate TRASH, though! Stop pretending you care about the employees. Giving them a 1-800 number to call, then FIRING them for telling you the truth.

    Pros

    Fun mix of coworkers from different backgrounds, excellent discount, different stations to learn on the production line to keep you from getting bored in one position, it's actually a pretty fun work environment at times. It's pretty shocking to them when you make it a month, so if you are a hard worker with half a brain, you'll probably be promoted quickly.
    Store/shift managers were usually pretty cool, its the higher up ones who were awful.

    Cons

    You'll smell like grease constantly, the turn over is high so management has no respect for employees, you'll be overwhelmingly busy one hour and painfully bored/slow the next, the "pay raises" you're supposed to get every so often for working there a certain amount of time basically never happen

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees with respect, and you won't have to hire new ones so often. Keep and enforce your own policies, especially the ones that benefit the staff, and you will have harder working employees because of it.

    Pros

    Old version of this giant corporation, changed my life. I poured my heart and soul into my dedication to my work and personal development

    Cons

    Changing economy, government and above store leaders. Some change is good, some is unavoidable, some are petty. Changing geographic area also has been a killer for me. Not so much corporation issue, as direct leadership and direct district issue. Professionalism and productivity is lacking. Consistency and accountability in certain locations are low.

    Advice to Management

    Take care to have open communication-always listen to the field. Too many irons in the fire-its overwhelming to simply run a shift sometimes. Too much fear implemented, not enough coaching to give info accurately through out the entire corporation. Training Dept is terrible
