    Pros

    Management works well with your schedule and is flexible about hours (most of the time); fast-paced environment keeps you on your toes and learning; build your adaptability and communication skills through customer service and multiple position roles; FREE FOOD after working your shift; ability to transfer stores

    Cons

    Pay is not worth the effort put in; won't always get the nicest, most friendly customers; management definitely plays favorites; tips made just went into the company's bank account; may be a stressful environment at times; work on weekends

    Pros

    -Free meal, this is very important -Hard work is recognized, but can be abused -Raises are every 6 months

    Cons

    -Some people will not do the equal amount of work but most times mgmt recognizes -Basically if you are not a manger/supervisor, you won't be able to make a good living off just this job because labor costs are always considered for obvious reasons

    Advice to Management

    Some need to be more helpful, but like any job I feel it is a real toss up, some will be great and others won't be.

    Pros

    Free food? It gets tiresome though

    Cons

    Bad pay, bad "commission", upper management doesn't really care abuot your work life balance. Only cares about payroll and food cost percentage

    Advice to Management

    You need to adjust your business plan and pricing for more affluent markets (Washington DC). Pay managers what they deserve, they are not your slaves. 2 weeks a year with 55 hour weeks is a joke.
