    I have been working at Raising Cane's part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    As a first job it is very fun, laid back and the managers are super friendly. It's also fast paced and very organized at most locations. Extremely clean for a fast food restaurant as well, and very easy to make friends. The managers always go out of their way to make you feel comfortable. Majority of the locations are efficiently ran by young workers which is a huge plus. The pay is good for a fast food restaurant as well and they recognize hard work.

    Cons

    They expect you to do a lot as soon as you're hired so training can be the most stressful, especially if your trainer is not a good one, Also their training system can seem sometimes very unnessisary. The kitchen is also very dangerous as it is slippery and they expect you to run around and lift things over 50 pounds.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of the training books ! And also stop loosing them.

    I worked at Raising Cane's full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The company itself is incredible. Great crew, cool culture. Active in the community. Had many laughs and great times working with my crew. Met many great people, but mainly the food quality is top notch every time. Excellent entry level job. Worked at 3 stores across the U.S and each time, have experienced something new.

    Cons

    Issues causing high stress and hectic work environment weren't resolved in a timely manner, or at all. Unnecessary gossip between management and crew. All party all the time, no respect. No benefits, minimal pay raises every 6 months, no promotions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Handle the major issues quickly and with priority.

    I worked at Raising Cane's full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    It is a great company If managed correctly.When I started, It held up To the canes One Love mantra.Employees wanted to come to work.Food is great.Discounts appreciated. Was a fun place to work and if stress was in the air our old manager would put a fun song on sing with the staff to boost moral, buy doughnuts or coffee,pizza for closer, canes closes at midnight you don't leave till 1am so with such a high demand job it was amazing.Safe and friendly under proper management.

    Cons

    Horrible management They never come out of the office, no training is given just a book and good luck. Dangerous place to work very heavy lifting is required,In a small environment .The Restaurants are not designed for safety.Many falls occur daily.parking lots are way to small.At canes you are required to run when doing anything they tell employees to work fast and with a purpose.It is not Your average food establishment when it comes to job requirement .Employees do everything lifting 60 lb. booths to clean floors, washing windows, spraying down parking lot, cutting lbs and lbs of lemons lifting large tubs to prep all foods and sauces It is a very high stress, hectic work environment for horrible pay.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Your District Manager is very aggressive and feels they need to assert their power through dictatorial leadership and negativity .If employees where trained properly,paid accordingly ,and management was carefully chosen. Your restaurants would be one of the top companies to work for. Your current GM Mesa 2014 is in need of serious training for the safety and moral of its employees.

    Pros

    -great laid back type of environment , but also a very fast-paced atmosphere

    Cons

    One of the cons of working here is that they rarely like to give you hours if labeled as a minor which sucks

    Try to schedule minors the most hours possible.

    Pros

    Great environment inside the kitchen when the GM is not around.

    Cons

    The job itself is designed for the naive teen who is still getting through high school. No self-respecting adult would resign him or herself to a lower position on the totem pole of life.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the great service and hire more teens because the adult eventually complain of career advancement in which none will get considering their education.

    Great pay for a college job and even for a little while after!

    Keep on keeping on!

    Pros

    Can be a fun, exciting, energetic place to work especially with the right team. Very fast pace and have to be communicative!

    Cons

    Hard to transfer and kind of hard to move up in company. More like for High School or College students that are looking for a way to make money, not a career in fast food.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better appreciation for long time employees.
