    Pros

    Good hours (but vary by location)

    Cons

    Minimum wage to start if no previous experience
    Very greasy environment (clothes smell like chicken, floor behind counter always slippery, find oil or grease in places you would never expect)

    Give higher wages as incentive for good performance
