    1. Employees steal your tips, especially since many of these are franchise owned by a family.
    2. Minimum wage
    3. no overtime
    4. no benefits
    5. very long work hours and your back will hurt like crazy, too much for a human to handle
    6. Working here as a college student was the worst mistake I have ever don in my life, it made me very depressed and I wish I could go back in time and never accept the job. PLEASE AVOID. Horrible franchised company.
    7. Rats all around in the backroom and they poop on food, and we still have to serve it to customers
