    As long as there are enough people staffed this is a great opportunity for a job that keeps you on your feet but not stressed.

    When there is not enough staff it sometimes gets hectic.

    I have been working at Krystal full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The workers! There is truly a sense of family at my store. Coworkers will go out of the way to help each other on and off the clock. There is always room for advancement.

    Cons

    Prices are too high. You can go to almost any other burger place and get much more for the same, or lower price. Staff needs to be paid better. Some managers are making just above min. wage.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Lower prices = more customers = more profit.

    I worked at Krystal part-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    I had made a few friends there, thats all that came out of it.

    Cons

    Oh My Gosh worst Job I ever had, I worked my butt off for them. They kept telling me I would make lead but never putting me up for it. Always offering people I trained my position I wanted. Never giving out raises. If you messed up they would yell at you in front of all the customers and employees.

    I have been working at Krystal full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    competitive pay and literally nothing else at all

    Cons

    excessive travel for any management position close in one city on a monday ( off @ 1 am ) open in a city thats two hours away on a tuesday ( back on the clock @ 5am) the company as a whole is understaffed and seems to have little to no interest in staffing their restaurants to provide the quality of service customers expect

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    be more open minded to positive change raise the bar and allow your teams the necessary tools to achieve results

    Dynamic, fast paced environment. Meeting deadlines crucial for this role. Customer server facing.
