    Pros

    The discount is great, you will probably get a lot of hours

    Cons

    Sometimes too many hours, no breaks, it gets very busy, the managers can only do so much at once, the scheduling is a nightmare, sometimes you'll come in and work 8 hours, sometimes 2.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay attention to scheduling and your doubles for the day.

    Pros

    Great atmosphere, values, and goals. I love the company and its goals.

    Cons

    The management is rude sometimes. Issues with scheduling and asking off. Awkward in and out times. Management can't seem to hire good workers recently, either.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remove your managers from this store. One can't speak to guests well, the other can't handle the pressure. There is only one that is good.

    Pros

    Free steak fries!! Coworkers where awesome, even hung out with a few outside of work. Management was cool, very fun to work with, and gave constructive criticism and advice to make you/your job better/easier.

    Cons

    One week you could work 5-6 days, the next week you could work 3. Over staffing during non peak hours=you could end up going home early. Friday and Saturday evenings are always crazy!
