    Pros

    The managers are usually helpful and nice. When its not super busy (usually in the evening) the work environment is very easy going. They are extremely flexible when it comes to scheduling.For the most part, it is a fun job thats not too hard.

    Cons

    It is extremely busy in the mornings and can be very hectic. Customers of course, are not always pleasant so sometimes you have to just put up with rude people or ridiculous orders.

    Advice to Management

    Give more credit to good employees. Sometimes it can seem pretty thankless. Other than that, keep doing what youre doing.

    Pros

    Great management, great hours, great pay, and great benefits, such as 50% off food while on shift and 25% off when not on shift.

    Cons

    Some of the downsides include it got really gross and messy behind the counter because we would let the food drop (which was okay because we would clean it often).

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work! I love how the managers didn't take the titles to their heads.

    Pros

    Easy work and nice pay. There's tons of time to think since there's nothing to do the whole time you're there

    Cons

    There's nothing to do. Its the most boring job one could hold. You can stand there for hours and just nap

    Advice to Management

    Create work to at least keep people busy

    Pros

    Reasonable hours and free meals while training.

    Cons

    I used to close and they paid $8/hr and it was heavy work. I asked why they only paid me $8 when I was told they would pay me $9.50.

    Pros

    This was a great franchise to work for. The owner had a genuine care for his managers and staff like no other owner I have ever worked for.

    Cons

    I have no cons to report about this company. They are fair and have a great philosophy of servant leadership that is matched by none.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work. I wish you nothing but the best of success in every aspect of your work, families and health.

    Pros

    Jason's really is a great company. They invest in leadership training, benefits are competitive for the industry, 2 days off in a row every week, at least one weekend off a month and vacation at 6 months.

    Cons

    It's a restaurant job and the stores are busy. You work hard for your entire shift. Promotions are very competitive. If you don't push 100% of the time it is easy to get passed over.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work!! I would say the first few weeks of MIT are REALLY hard to adjust, even from other restaurant work and maybe a little clearer instruction would be helpful.
