Great for Crew Members. Sucks for Management

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Staten Island, NY

Prosgood pay, benefits, and you get to try a lot of new foods

ConsAlmost no work/life balance for Mates, lots of drama, poor follow through by senior management, rude customers, and very little accountability for underperforming Crew Members. Really, if a Crew Member gets in with the store Captain they can get away with just about anything they want

Advice to Senior ManagementHold Crew Members accountable. Have Regional Directors monitor store Captains closely because a lot of them are promoted to Captains before they are ready

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
