    Pros

    Great vacation deal (up to 5 weeks total).
    Benefits package isn't the best but isn't bad.
    401k matches you up to 6%.
    Pay isn't bad considering you're not really any different from a shift leader.

    Cons

    Don't expect breaks.
    Can be stressful due to call-outs.
    Expect to be under-appreciated for your work.
    Upper management seems a bit disconnected from reality.
    Depending on circumstances, you can potentially be the RGM but with significantly less pay.

    Advice to Management

    Lead by example. This isn't the kind of job where you can be an office manager.
    Learn to use the Answer System and all the tools provided. Team members should never be able to say to you "Well this manager said this..." No. Always point them to the official answer via build cards/Answer System.

  2. Confusing at first, but I'm starting to like it.

    Pros

    Work with college schedules. Teens my age at the time.

    Cons

    I went on a vacation for a week i requested it and got approved. came back and asked for my schedule to see when i next work. New GM said i was no longer on schedule and i asked if he fired me and he said no and i said well i didn't quit and he said that they just decided not to put me on the schedule anymore after 8 months of working there. I was upset.

  9. I worked at a Charter Foods owned store. It was what I wanted from a college job.

    Pros

    Flexible availability
    Easy work
    employee discounted meals

    Cons

    Very repetitive
    Terrible compensation
    Over-regulated (many processes didn't make logical sense)

    Workers are people, pay them like humans please. You can make more money at the gas station down the street.

  10. I worked at the cash register, and I also worked with some of the food.
