    Pros

    Fudd's is a great place to work if you're looking for part time minimum wage type employment. It is very similar to just about any other restaurant out there.

    Cons

    There really are not any cons, yes you're on your feet for your whole shift, and yes you have to deal with overbearing customers, but that really isn't too different from many other jobs out there.

    Advice to Management

    Just keep on doing what you are doing. Fudd's has a great product and great people. Just keep it up.


  6. No Sexual Harassment Policy

    I have been working at Fuddruckers

    Pros

    It's a job, pay is okay, and the location is good. But it's not worth risking your dignity. There is plenty to learn here, but take a self defense class before you work here. It's that serious. Managers and male employees are inappropriate at least and criminal at worst.

    Cons

    Think twice about working here, especially if you are a woman. A manager is actively harassing employees and nothing is done about it. The work environment is hostile, dangerous and humiliating.

    Advice to Management

    Put a sexual harassment policy in place and then ENFORCE IT. It is 2015 and this isn't Afghanistan or India. Get it together.

    Pros

    -Managers were very willing to work around my schedule -Easy job

    Cons

    -Never received a wage in 3+ years there -Never received "Employee of the Month", yet management consistently told me that I was the best employee in the store (begged me to come back when I told them I was leaving after graduation for a new full time job, including bribing me with a raise)

    Advice to Management

    -Focus more on your good employees instead of working to fix the bad ones. You can always find a new average employee, but once you lose a good one, they're much harder to replace.

    Pros

    Very flexible, caring district supervisor, opportunity for growth, New building, semi competitive pay, growing company with different brands, employees are treated like family.

    Cons

    Due to the new status of the business, training is expensive to send a manager to a corporate store for proper training, this is essential to a managers success with this restaurant.

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to detail, be supportive, be assertive where need be, ask all employment questions and get them in writing before accepting employment.

    Pros

    Management is great and the work with your schedule. Treated like family. Food is discounted.

    Cons

    The pay is horrible! You will do a lot of work for $7.25. I worked there for 2 years only received one raise. Which was only .15 cents. Do not count on weekends because they are always short staffed. If you are a good worker they use that to their advantage, but do not help you at all.

    Advice to Management

    Give the employees more more, we have bills as well.

    Pros

    I worked with some fun people who worked hard and helped each other.

    Cons

    I also worked with people who worked for a few days and quit because the job wasn't worth the money. Corporate policies and apathetic or clueless management clashed constantly and left everyone beneath them to deal with the ridiculous work environment that is Fuddruckers.

    Advice to Management

    Make the work environment tolerable and remember that the people that work "for" you will work against you and make conditions worse if you treat them like garbage.
