    Pros

    If you are Filipino and you just came from the PH, they would more likely hire you because I like to believe that the company would like to give newcomers a chance to start a new life in a new place. They are flexible with scheduling and are easy to coordinate with. It is a great place to be with fellow Filipinos too. Being SC, I love the fact that I got to handle my own time and workload.

    Cons

    There is a high turnover rate mainly because there is no room for growth. Every year, an increase of $0.30 is awarded, which is pretty low. There are no benefits. Supervisors and the like get underpaid. A lot of office politics. Job responsibilities a re vague and relied on to me.

    Advice to Management

    Adapt the American way of leading and team building. Leave crab mentality in the PH.

    Pros

    My coworkers were nice and super friendly. They are not very strict with anything. Supervisors are also nice and very approachable. It's fun working with the store's environment.

    Cons

    Almost all the jobs are part-time. They only give full-time employment to higher positions. No holiday pay. No overtime, and overtime pay. No benefits. No increase in pay. You get minimum hours. You always get complains from customers because the products are either expired or won't show up in the system when you scan it. The register always freeze and their devices are crappy. And you'll always smell like fish after you work.

    Advice to Management

    Upgrade the computers and the system. Offer good benefits to the employees. Give more hours to work. Offer promotions and increased pays. Listen to the voice of the employees because they do work hard for the company.

    Pros

    The company is willing to spend for equipment for the express purpose of efficiency. Employees there are easy to get along with.

    Cons

    There is a noticeable lack of professionalism in the workplace. There is no set parameter for career growth. Some decisions are made in an arbitrary manner that is contrary to the growth of the company.

    Advice to Management

    Value your employees. Treat them as assets, not another "mouth to feed". Invest in them.

    Pros

    Free lunch if you worked in Grill City and the food was pretty good

    Cons

    Worked in high stress conditions at time, with understaffed team and management expecting worker to stay for OT, not much room for growth.

    Advice to Management

    Need to make sure have enough employees set to work on weekends.

    Pros

    Good place for new Filipinos in the U.S. They accept pretty much anyone of age even if you have not much experience. They are all friendly and happy employees. They are very considerate of schedules too.

    Cons

    Very slow and little raise. Branch Managers should be more professional and needs improvement in accomplishing their duty as managers. Overall working environment is very Filipino in the sense that instead if pulling each other up, it is the opposite. Very little appraisal and a lot of seen mistakes and hidden agendas.

    Advice to Management

    They should try to be more concerned and caring for their employees so that their employees return the favor.

    Grill City supervisor does not care about his employees.

    Advice to Management

    They should see how the Grill City workers feel while working.
