    Provides great opportunities up front, not much growth available.

    Pros

    The atmosphere of the work environment was phenomenal and provided experience for someone looking to get into management. The potential the company has is great, and will need to work with that ambition to move far.

    Cons

    Pay wasn't the best, and there was no chance for growth in the company. Raises were unavailable, the hours were strenuous over time. Having to be at work until 3am or later puts a large amount of stress on you.

    Pros

    They worked around my school schedule, good atmosphere, and likable coworkers.

    Cons

    Working until 2-3am on weeknights, minimum wage, limited opportunities for advancement. While these weren't necessarily positive attributes, it was clear what you were signing up for before starting. Overall, it's exactly what you'd expect from a job like this. Not great, Not bad.

    Pros

    great environment, great training crew, great front office, easy going environment, easy job to get. They do NOT drug test, in fact the environment is VERY saturated with stoners

    Cons

    the farther you are from hq the less support you are given, you are criticized when things go wrong but not praised enough when they go right.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Not the greatest

    Pros

    Free pita after your shift

    Cons

    Horrible Training. It consisted of watching my manager make one pita sandwich. Then, the next customer that walked in they told me to make their order. Ummm what? I don't know if you know, but those pitas are super fragile and hard to work with. By the time I was done with that thing the guy ended up with a salad that was held together by the paper wrapping. I feel sorry for that guy. But, I was too scared of my manager to tell him. I quit after the first day. So yea, train your employees better. I'm not surprised that the location I worked at closed down.

    Pros

    Good experience learning the process of prepping, achieving customer satisfaction and general money handling duties. Can be a lot of fun once you learn everything.

    Cons

    Depends highly on managers attitude and management style. This works to be either a great experience or not so good.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Go all organic and use only fresh foods!

    Pros

    It's a job, that's about all I can say.

    Cons

    The store was consistently under staffed. Located on Greek Row next to a busy bar and the drunks are unbearable at times. The owners are cheap and do not listen to management who work day to day in the stores, they were very unwilling to invest in their stores. Very low pay for the hours and work expected. As store Manager, I made $1.50 more an hour then the entry level employees making minimum wage. I personally was never paid overtime in 4 years even after working 20 hour days consistently. High turnover. The owners were more interested in hiring cute girls who look good in a tank top then in people who were willing and qualified to work. No benefits at all even for management. The list goes on and on.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The owners really need to treat their employees better and value the ones who have worked themselves to death. They also need to invest more time in their stores so they know the dynamics of a college campus and customer trends.
