    Pros

    Good people. The food is good. I do not consider working here. People are mean and it is stressful to work there.

    Cons

    Bad managers. Bad customers. This isn't the best job. I consider working at a more less stressful place. It is just not worth working here.

    Advice to Management

    Pros

    Lots of great people to work with, schedule is very flexible.

    Cons

    After a certain point there is no room to advance, especially if you work for a franchisee.

    Advice to Management

    Create opportunities for people outside of the corporation to advance whether it's in training, consulting, or any number of areas. Would also like to see upper management in the stores actually doing some of the new procedures and products that they introduce.
