    Pros

    Every hour counts, of course 30 minute break isn't paid.
    Flexible schedules, can be arranged with your coworkers & with the manager.
    Good coworkers & free food too for your break.

    Cons

    Minimum wage.
    Sometimes, long hours are given.
    Dealing with rude customers & with prevalent counterfeit money issues.
    Keep yourself during idle hours.

    Advice to Management

    Make hours as even as possible throughout the week. Try and help the staff more and get involved. Make sure the store has everything it needs before leaving for the night

    Pros

    -The staff are very friendly
    - extremely flexible hours
    -Customers are friendly and nice
    -slow pace environment except around lunch times

    Cons

    There are not very many besides the fact that the smell of onions follows me home each night.
    Management also seems to favor some people, which means less hours for everyone else.

    Pros

    Fun and easy place to work. Fellow employees made it an excellent place to work. Hours were flexible and if you needed a day off it wasn't a hassle.

    Cons

    Like any other fast food restaurant, customers can sometimes be rude and be difficult to deal with at times. Being on your feet all day can be tiring as well.
