    Pros

    Free food during break, lots of hours, easy job to learn, drive thru is a blast, managers were fun, so much delicious hot sauce everywhere! I was fired twice for cost cutting measures and was re-hired because I didn't need to be trained. Best company, ever! I'd work there again if I could take the financial cut. But I have bills, so it will sadly never work out between us again.

    Cons

    Grease burns, grease fires, hot water burns, you go home smelling horribly, never ending dishes, thin garbage bags, customers can never seem to deposit bodily fluids/waste in the toilet (who poops on the wall?!), being on fryer duty is torture (cleaning that beast is terrifyingly gross), the cleaning sanitizer seems to melt skin on contact, they promote you without extra pay or a new title but give you all of the responsibilities.

    Advice to Management

    Support those who memorize your portions and can eyeball proper servings for your menu and those who teach the ESL's how to adapt and thrive. Support those who come to work on days off to help unpaid because their shift leader is sobbing from 3 crew members short and the store manager won't allow her to call someone in because the owner is upset for having to spend money on restaurant repairs. And, please don't ever fire the guy (for smoking pot while walking to work) who smokes pot before work everyday who spends unpaid time doing inventory every week because the store manager makes him come in just to gain his normal hours. It's only pot, he was flawless 100% of the time, and it was unpaid (illegal) work. Poor guy was penalized for not wanting to cheat on his girlfriend. Besides that, rock on!

    Pros

    Pretty nice place to work at, fellow employees are nice and you did what you did to get by and everyone seems to know what they are doing

    Cons

    Low pay but thats obvious with a minimum wage job and sometimes when we get busy it gets a little heck tick

    Advice to Management

    Work on some more benefits for the part timers and maybe longer brakes would be nice

    Pros

    Awesome job as long as you have a good team.If you are able to hit company goals the bonus can be a good payout.

    Cons

    High turnover is the hard part.It can be challenging to find top performing individuals at $8 a hr.long hours,hard to have any family time.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in your people because the high turnover is going to cost you in the long run anyway.low turnover should be rewarded.
