    Unfortunately non. Management has no respect. Screams and degrades you in front of customers. They also threaten you

    Cons

    Degraded by manager and supervisor. No respect. Manger is not profession doesn't know how to run his department. Heath safety concerns with food handling. Food left out all day that need to refrigerated. Dangerous environment to work in, floors always grease. Would not there to buy at the hot counter since I worked there. .

    Advice to Management

    You should train you man agent team better. Treat disabled employees with respect and dignity. Those preparing food should be food safe certified.
