    I worked at Noodles & Company

    Pros

    I loved working here! Friendly people, fun and busy work, great employee perks. Fair pay and encouraging, competent management (at the location I worked at).

    Cons

    Other than some difficult customers and busy days that when we were occasionally under-staffed, no major cons to working here.

    I worked at Noodles & Company part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    The people were relatively friendly. The management was flexible, kind and willing to work with you.

    Cons

    Lunch shift for dishwashers was only 2 hours. Pretty much only went in to keep the job but the 15 dollars wasn't hardly worth my time.

  8.  

    Your basic part-time.

    Pros

    Great food and a great discount. Your basic part time job.

    Cons

    Pay your kids more. For the amount of work we do without scheduled breaks compensation should be way higher.

    Pros

    Great food, fast pace and great people.

    Cons

    No dishwasher with unrealistic expectations. I often felt left very worn down.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Add in the dishwasher as before and encourage more praise for the hard work that the employees do complete.
