    I worked at Raising Cane's part-time

    Pros

    The management is very easy to talk to and work with you. The atmosphere is very laid back, so you don't really feel like you're working.

    Cons

    When the restaurant was slow you would have to do a lot of cleaning and mundane tasks to keep busy.

    Pros

    Flexible hours
    Fun environment
    Fast pace
    Cool coworkers
    Upbeat management
    Area Regional manager comes thru and helps around the store every few weeks.

    Cons

    The pay is okay but when you're constantly going above and beyond. It seems so little.
    Expect unsatisfied guests.
    Sometimes can be unorganized.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give more credit where it's due amongst the best employees.

    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

    Reasonable pay, fun crew, room for growth, and sweet 50% off discount, and close to campus if you are a student.

    Cons

    The only con I can truly say is working doing the school year, since Cane's is open till 3am Thurs.-Sat.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work and keep motivating employees

    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 (less than an 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.
