I was upset.

    Pros

    You learn to appreciate not working in the fast food industry once you don't work there. You learn to be patient with customers and coworkers.

    Cons

    Rediculus scheduling. Management rarely listens to suggestions in franchise locations. People who make the schedule don't take into account people's needs.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to suggestions of your employees. Offer incentives to do better. Give employees a free meal; it's not that expensive and it would prevent them from doing things that could get them fired like steal food here and there or grab a piece of food while preparing it.
