    Great training, especially when opening a store.
    Franchise is expanding so a lot of management opportunities.
    Hire up from within.
    Great atmosphere with great owners.

    Cons

    Being a server, long hours are always possible. Comes with the territory though.

    Pros

    One of the only pros of working here is that they are offer employees who are in school lots of flexibility when it comes to their work schedule. There's also the potential to get a lot of hours, which translates into a bigger pay check.

    Cons

    Working here was like being in high school all over again. There was so much drama, gossiping, and backstabbing going on between employees. No one was willing to help out struggling employees. It was a very hostile and tense environment to work in.

    Advice to Management

    Stop trying to be friends with the employees and be a good example on proper etiquette at work!

  7. I love this environment great people to work with, very fun.

    Pros

    Free food sometimes, lots of good coworkers, sometimes nice customers, good music, food is good, you get to wear jeans and shorts,

    Cons

    The hours are awful, some managers are awful. Also, I've been here since May and I haven't had a performance review or pay raise. Also MANY employees have complained to the GM about some of our other managers but nothing have happened to them at all. I don't even think they've been talked to about their actions.

    Advice to Management

    Please please please take employees complaints serious. Also give some kind of incentive for people to want to stay. Even a pat on the back would be nice.

    Pros

    Money is descent, if you get good shifts.
    Management is pretty laid back.

    Cons

    Lazy fellow employees will leave you doing all the work.
    The clientele is a little... trashy

    Advice to Management

    Favoritism is alright, if its earned. Allowing lazy people who suck at thier jobs to do whatever they want, not good for business.
