Great employees. Terrible management

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at Jake's Wayback Burgers

Pros-coworkers are great, friendly, inviting And hardworking.
-enjoyable work experience due to coworkers
-if you like working at a high speed pace(on weekends) and like the challenge, it's for you !

Cons-management is TERRIBLE. They don't listen to their employees when they have a problem.
-management will not work with your schedule even if you are in school and involved in extracurricular activities.
-management will offer advancements and promotions to get you to work harder, yet will not go through with promises
-new management has no experience in being a manager and will favor certain employees along with talk about other employees to employees behind their backs.
-very mixed up management. Owner will not listen to employees about manager until it's too late. This has happened several times. Not just once
-management expects longer term employees to handle the entire store(cash register, milkshakes, cooking, prep work, cleaning) by themselves along with training new employees
-new manager seems to go on "breaks" for long periods of time and coming back with an overwhelming smell of cologne seeming as if to cover up some other smell

Advice to Senior ManagementCommunicate with your employees better and listen to their needs. Do not make promises of advancement if you are not willing to go through with it.

Terrible, god awful

Cashier (Former Employee)
Pottstown, PA

I worked at Jake's Wayback Burgers part-time for more than a year

ProsSome of the employees are tolerable

ConsWhere to begin. One most of the employees are burnouts or scum. Ignorant people who think they are better then you and won't help a new employee.

Management is AWFUL. The owner is too incompetent to hire a GOOD manager, so she goes with drug addicts, bank robbers, ex criminals, and current criminals. Finally the current TWO managers can't run a resteraunt to save their lives. With these three at the helm of this store this place will tank in the next 3 years max.

Pay is terrible. Sometimes they will even not pay you correctly. They have been investigated for labor problems. Unless that is the manager or owner likes you and will promote you even if you lack the requirements.

Advice to Senior ManagementShut down and try to save face. You tried to own a resteraunt and failed miserably.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
