    Pros

    Easy, and relaxing job. As soon as you know what you're doing, you're set. If you work if not busy restaurant you can even watch movies

    Cons

    Area managers don't listen, expect too much, and are disrespectful. Company is set to make profit, don't care about people and their needs. Lack of any training. They will make you a manager and tell you "deal with it". You will get in trouble for not knowing something that should be provided. Very low salary.

    Advice to Management

    Update your system, train your people, promote within instead of hiring managers from elsewhere. Respect your staff, and pay them better.
