    Pros

    My co-workers were very friendly as well as the regular customers. It was never boring!

    Cons

    Drive thru was hell. I was cashier as well as taking orders and customers could see that and they at times felt as if they didn't want to interrupt me.

    Advice to Management

    Get more people to work on drive thru during rush hour.

    Pros

    Free meals.
    Close knit crew.
    Wonderful regulars.

    Cons

    A lot of young workers with no work ethic.
    Unrealistic expectations.
    Little pay for a lot of work.

    Advice to Management

    Most minors have no work ethic. If you want the business to perform well, stop hiring children who only care about leaving early to hangout with their friends. Adults are more likely to perform better because they NEED their job in order to pay rent and bills.
