    I worked at Raising Cane's part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Friendly people, company values, hygiene, good relationship with managers and GM, flexible hours and time off

    Cons

    Standing the whole shift, you may or may not get a break during your shift, not everything is explained during training--a lot of on the job learning

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More realistic wages!

    Pros

    Very Clean. Great working environment and enthusiastic employees.

    Cons

    Upper management favoritism made it hard to gain a promotion through dedication and hard work. Getting time off was a difficult task even with 3 months notice.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider an easier way to schedule time off. Reduce Manager and crew member fraternizing.

    I have been working at Raising Cane's part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The main point for my location is that it has a super flexible schedule. I'm a current student and can't work the long shifts that some workers can, but I still get my 20 hours in through the week.

    -This chain seems the cleanest out of all the fast-food chains. You keep your station spotless!
    -The GM is easy to talk to and his "We can do this!" attitude tends to rub off on you.
    -The other managers are easy to get along with as well, though I will say that some are sticklers for the rules, but nothing unbearable and within reason.
    -The pay is pretty good if you are starting in the company, I started at $8.00/hr and got a raise after 7 months (I would have gotten one sooner but I started a month late and missed the second raise of the year).
    -The summer and winter breaks of the school year do cut hours for some, but if you work the amount of hours I do, then you should be fine. You will be doing a lot of detail cleaning during those times, but at least you'll be taking advantage of many slow days.
    -I warn you of game days, if you are into non-stop crowds and high energy then these are the days for you! I believe you get paid $1.00/hr extra if you work these shifts.
    -If you are the night-owl type, their closing shifts during the school year will keep you busy. It does get a bit rowdy, what with the location being near Sixth Street, but during those times there will be an officer or two to calm the crowds in case someone gets out of hand. However most nights will give you a funny story to tell to your friends later.
    Overall it is a fun environment!

    Cons

    It was difficult getting a hold of next week's schedule, however, there is a new online system that seems to be helping people pick up and release shifts with ease.

    Sometimes shifts won't go as planned, last-minute crowds come in, extra help is needed, others want to leave as scheduled or earlier and you will be asked if you can stay for 15-30 minutes. It's become almost too common, that most people just assume they won't get off until 15 minutes later, but at least they aren't asking you to stay for an hour. But sometimes these longer times cut into your breaks if you work longer shifts.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find better timing for the workers to come and go, don't leave time gaps (even if it is for 10 minutes) on positions, because sometimes workers that come to relieve others will be late.

    I worked at Raising Cane's

    Pros

    1. Great Starting Pay- started at $7.75 per hour and within five months I was at $8.25
    2. Good company
    3. Room to move up
    4. Can be a good crew. My location was not selective enough in hiring crew or management, but for the most part it wasn't too bad.

    Cons

    My only issue with my location was that they had a lot of trouble finding and keeping good employees. Many of us had to pick up the slack due to extremely short staff.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be very selective about hiring, including shift leaders.

    Pros

    Lot of growth within the company. Financially strong, great work life balance. No micromanaging. Great Culture and work environment

    Cons

    Not really many cons. Not too much vacation time but there is enough offered to relax. Also no retirement plan within the company.
