    Wouldn't recommend but hey it's a job.

    Shift Manager (Current Employee)
    Huntsville, AL

    ProsFairly easy work. Easy to learn. Decent hours.

    ConsThere is always something broken. Very hard to get things we need fixed. Have to run shifts with two or three people to satisfy labor. Horrible pay. Shift leaders make below $8.50/hr. GM works 50+ hours and not even bringing home a grand bi-weekly. Fix it Jesus.

    Advice to Senior ManagementI understand numbers are everything but it gets hard sometimes.

    Was a manager making Min. Wage

    Shift Manager (Former Employee)
    Las Vegas, NV

    ProsYou don't have to travel far from your job to get fish.

    ConsMin. Wage. Managers often don't know the procedures or how to properly run a business.

    Advice to Senior Managementclose down, go back to marketing dept. and tell them to make Long John's a family restaurant again.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    For a fast food job, this one is decent.

    RGM (Former Employee)

    ProsEasy to work your way up to higher positions if you apply yourself. The pay for management positions is fair and reasonable. Bonuses are nice and quarterly. Fast paced environment. Shifts go very quickly, there is always something to do.

    ConsOnce you're salary the hours are brutal. Expect to work 55+ a week. Can be highly stressful at times, especially when you are running with skeleton crews. Maintaining upper management expectations with regards to labor costs is often futile.

    Typical Fast food Job

    Cook (Former Employee)

    ProsThe manager was flexible with the schedules. Easy to complete tasks. Help was available if needed (managers would love to help you out). There was great work life balance

    ConsThere was always something broken, usually a fryer (occasionally 2). The store ended up closing due to poor sales supposedly, without any prior warnings. It was difficult to advance within the company as well.

    Best franchise to work for if you want to get close to employees.

    Shift Management (Current Employee)
    Cranberry, PA

    ProsI don't care how bad people talk about this place, it is a nice place to work for someone who is just starting out in the food business and wants to get their feet wet with a little bit of cooking and customer service. good hours and customers will appreciate you if you give them a little bit of your time. you can advance very well here too.

    ConsBad management. bad cooperate managers, not much benefits.

    Advice to Senior Managementget more money and put actually money into nice equipment for the comapany.

    – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Fabulous experience.

    Shift Leader (Current Employee)

    ProsOpportunity to advance ( to a point)
    Pretty simple work.
    Mostly small crew , so everyone gets hours.
     Touch screen registers.

    ConsMoney isn't invested into stores properly.
    Keeps putting out new product regardless if certain stores have room or not.
    Some stores need remodeling.
    Customers complaints are sometimes absurd and upper management doesn't help with this.

    Advice to Senior ManagementMaybe a little more recognition to employees who bust their hump! Understand that some stores sell particular items better than others.

    Typical fast food job.

    Cashier (Former Employee)

    ProsMy experience was with great co-workers and management. The menu was not complex, and the staff was kept small enough to get good hours.

    ConsLittle opportunity for advancement. There is always grease. It is typically a minimum wage job.
