  5. Was a great company to work for at one time but recent changes in management have changed the culture for the worst.

    Pros

    Great people and environment. The culture was very good up to recent changes.

    Cons

    New ownership brought in new seniot management that changed the culture and not for the better.

    Advice to Management

    Make the Franchise Adfund work exclusively to increase sales using smarter strategies and tactics and not just use it to pay for highly paid C-level employees.

    Pros

    This is the kind of company where you can move up fairly well. Seems like the Company Johnny Rockets cares about their employees although local business owners don't.

    Cons

    Unreasonable business owners for the Brownsville location. Lowest paying Johnny Rockets location that I know of. Leaving only one person to close back of the house most days. Inappropriate joking and treatment towards employees. Although there are many employees working more than full time, no one receiving lunch breaks or health care benefits.

    Advice to Management

    Upper management should take better care of their employees. They should take notice of their well being. And don't be so surprised that everyone quits.

    Pros

    It made me more alert with money and customer service. Great tips. Free food. Customers can be really nice.

    Cons

    It gets hot. Customers are so dumb and annoying sometimes. You have to share tips with the chef. Waking up early. Being hurried when youre running already.

    Freedom at work, and ability to create your own income.

    Pros

    Downtown location means lots of tourists. Summer traffic can be hard to keep up with at first but the tips are worth it on those days.
    Winter months are slower but steady. Energetic work environment

    Cons

    Poor communication to employees from management and ownership. People can be rude.


  11. Busy, on your feet, fast paced

    Pros

    Starting job. I made good tips for a sixteen year old. It was busy on the weekends. I didn't want to have to dance. You have to dance every now and then whenever a certain song comes on. They teach you the dance moves. Kinda silly. I would try to hide. Anyway, it was a fun but tiring job.

    Cons

    Some coworkers attitudes really sucked.
