    Pros

    its a fast pace job with the ability to advance quickly if you have the willingness to learn and can stay cool under pressure.

    Cons

    it has a high turnover rate and some days feel like it could be the worst day of your life, orders are not being pushed out in a timely manner, costumers complain about anything and crew members not wanting to come to work when you really need them.

    Advice to Management

    listen to your crew members and take constructive criticism without feeling like they are attacking your character. remember the golden rule of treat others how you like to be treated.

    Pros

    The work isn't terribly hard. Lots of rules and regulations so you know what is expected of you - which is what i prefer. There is always something to do, so you don't get bored. Excellent after school and weekend job for a student. Food tastes great! Never got tired of it.

    Cons

    Working with teenagers can be as awful as it sounds. I bonded with the older employees and my manager.

    Advice to Management

    Don't keep the employees that can't come in time or "forget" their shift. The schedule is given to them ahead of time for a reason. They don't deserve the job.
