    Great leadership. Wonderful place to work with cross functional teams. Collaborative work environment

    Long hours. Not too many complaints for working at this organization. Other than you want to continuously strive for more.

    Give guidance not direction. Lead by example. Think about the image of the brand and if each employee represents brand well.

    Pros

    Employer help/benefits is a plus. Stay busy for the most part.

    Cons

    Not much opportunity to rank up in position.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to recognize employees that are actually trying hard and putting a lot of effort. Even if it was a small pay raise, it would be fine.

    Pros

    Job duties are usually straight-forward and the curly fries are to die for. Not to mention that 50% discount!

    Cons

    Safety and hygiene standards are rarely enforced when nobody from corporate or the Health Department is around.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Simplify the menu, tighten your grip on the managers that barely meet hygiene standards, and increase organization within stores
