    Awesome helpful co-workers. 60% discount on meals. A few positive daily customers.Free drinks from the coffee area and soda fountain.


    Management is not so great. Customers can be extremely rude and hard to deal with at times. Few or no breaks at all for 4 to 5 hour shifts. Incondersiate about your timing but when your 5 minutes late its a big deal. I rarely get let out on time from work and often wait a long time for transpiration to get home. No break room.

    Advice to Management

    Please take more time and consideration to your employees. I also don't think its fair at all that you don't give your workers attleast a 15 to 20 minute break for 4 to 5 hour shifts. Its not healthy for anyone to stand for that long. Also, a few of the managers are not helpful at times and are no where in sight when you need help with customers.
