    Pros

    Generally they were very fair with scheduling, I worked the hours I wanted to. It was hard to find good people to work with. New people never stayed and the people that were there the longest had a sense of entitlement.

    Cons

    Very poor management and the corporate structure was terrible. You could become a store manager with no formal education but rather, just had to be with the company for a long time. Managers would allow people to take food home/allow people to do personal things while on company time at while having someone else cover their responsibilities.

    Advice to Management

    Hire educated managers and keep a close eye on food costs. It's not that hard to compare figures between stores.

    Pros

    High quality products helpful regional trainers. Organize corporate system that works. Great benefits for managers and long term employees. Paid decent milage when have to travel for training

    Cons

    Extremely ridiculous scheduling needed for managers cannot take weekends off without prior consent forced to work every Friday or have to use vacation time. Ridiculous time requirements during even during dead time for management.

    Advice to Management

    Stop forcing your mention to have to work every single weekend without consent more than 30 days and stop having to work Friday nights without using vacation time.

    Pros

    Sometimes stressful, but ALWAYS fun environment. Awesome management, AMAZING discount (50% off!?!), and fun times. Good hours too!

    Cons

    Pay (especially serving.. you can get slow sometimes) and co-workers. It's more or less a high-school job.

    Advice to Management

    Train more & have FUN

    Pros

    The pay and benefits are good for management

    Cons

    You have to deal with the constant problem of staffing, people calling off, understaffing. Upper management (district managers and office personnel) have lost touch with the real world. Products that were on the menu 20 years ago, are put back on, because one person in the office wanted it, no matter how horrible the product is. Constant complaining from customers regarding the high price, and how they can get better food much cheaper elsewhere.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your customers and employees, and get off your "throne" into the real world.

    Pros

    Occasional free food. Slightly above minimum wage pay. Ability to move between stores. Always looking to promote from within.

    Cons

    Horrible management, poor morale, bad corporate culture, little to no discount, continual talk of charging employees for wasted food, no benefits. Out dated POS systems. No proper system in place to set availability or request time off. Easy to make assistant manager, hard to move beyond that even with open positions.

    Pros

    Great management, people who start here stay here for a long time, they work around your family time, corporate is very nice and friendly! Great training in every position. Very clean establishment!

    Cons

    Benefits and bonuses could be a bit better. I am a supervisor and my bonuses are pretty laughable, but to be honest it doesn't bother me much. I am just happy to be getting anything bonus wise.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work!
