    Pros

    I had a great learning experience. Helping individuals taught me valuable lesson to be patient and open minded with anyone that served there.

    Cons

    There was just a lack of appreciation whenever you work as hard as you do and having to look at the check at the end of the pay period

    Pros

    The pay is okay and there's always something to do to make time pass.

    Cons

    Rude customers, management demands a lot but they don't do anything and the manager's rude too.

    Advice to Management

    Change attitude towards customers and employees. People aren't dirt, your management position doesn't make you God.

    Pros

    The psy is decent. I am a shift leader and I get paid 10.50/hour.

    Cons

    Cons outweigh the pros. Hortible health insurance, thank goodness my dad has a great job that offers bluecross/blueshield. Management does not care about employees or customers. My manager allows some of his employees to break company policy and get away with it.

    Advice to Management

    Care about your employees and enforce the rules. You allow employees to break the rules and get away with it. Why set company policies if you do not enforce them?

    Pros

    Quick to promote you.
    Food discounts.
    Ability to work every station.

    Cons

    Raise issues.
    Scary intimidating district managers
    Co workers who just don't care because no one will fire them.

    Advice to Management

    Let your general restaurant managers run their stores not the district managers. Put money into hiring good quality people instead of hiring and firing then treating the ones who stick around like crap.
