    Managers/supervisors monitor you constantly
    Pay is average, especially if you're under 21
    Food is expensive so even with a staff discount it costs a bit to eat there on breaks
    Reasonably high turnover
    Can get very repetitive

    I worked at The Pancake Parlour full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Honestly I can not think of anything nice to say about this organisation. It sucks the life out of you!!

    Cons

    Senior management is ridiculous, you work your arse off and get absolutely nothing in return except the expectation that you will do the same week in week out. Food is marked up ridiculously high to provide for the church of Scientology donations. Oh and don't think about calling in sick you will be in the bad books for quite some time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat people with dignity and respect

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
