    I worked at Genghis Grill full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Very active, loud, and fun job Kept very clean Never got tired of the food

    Cons

    Very little teamwork Shady business practices Clueless and lazy franchise owner Nepotism is rampant Employees meals cost far too much

    Advice to Management

    Pick a business plan and STICK TO IT. You're a stir fry place not a taco shack. Also, I wish management could have been more proactive instead of reactive regarding overtime and hours. The employees should not get in trouble for management's scheduling oversights.
