    Pros

    They work around your schedule and they pay you more then minimum wage. Co-workers and managers were wonderful and great management is actually on the line helping the crew out either with making sandwiches or salads or doing the fires or handling the drive threw

    Cons

    Typical fast food place and some of the costumers were very rude and leave there garbage for you to pick up after them
