    Pros

    Good tips. You can make 30 bucks in tips in a really good day. The owners are really friendly and nice.

    Cons

    Long hours and weekends are mandatory. Pretty much if you won't work both Saturday and sunday, your fired.

    Advice to Management

    Give the workers a break. I cut my finger so many times there to the bone and was told to keep working. No one is going to want to work for you if you treat them like slaves.

    Pros

    The employees you meet are actually awesome. Best part of the job was getting to work around people I loved. The tips if you're a driver are pretty decent.

    Cons

    The company could care less about its employees. If it's not staffed right it can be stressful. The pay is terrible unless you become a manager. They don't give any incentive to work harder or to be a better employee.

    Advice to Management

    You're penny smart pound foolish. Start caring and taking stock in the good employees you have and they will make the company money. You worry too much about all the arbitrary rules.

    Pros

    None really - I suppose that it was easy to land a job here. Might be good for high school or college students.

    Cons

    Horrible management, horrible upper management, bad pay, horrible hours

    Advice to Management

    Maybe pay more for the delivery drivers, who are expected to do EVERYTHING in the store (that other positions get paid more to do) - and tips are not an excuse, when you send other positions out in urgent situations and they get to keep said tips.

    Pros

    Friendly co-workers, sometimes. My GM was supportive.

    Cons

    No employee perks. No incentives. All my coworkers would rather get high than do their jobs. HR doesn't respond to regular employees.

    Advice to Management

    Find people to work there that aren't scum of the earth and reward those who do their jobs.

    Pros

    There is good flexibility of hours, good range of hours that can be worked, other employees tend to be easy to work with, and the work itself is not very difficult.

    Cons

    Pay raise is highly unlikely, dinner and lunch rushes can become very stressful and unpredictable.
