    I worked at Zaxby's full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    The training was easy, you get put on the schedule immediately, and your job is easy.

    Cons

    Dealing with bad management, dealing with rude customers, and having to have under 29 hours a week

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Motivate your team members, don't yell at your drive-thru cashiers when they are not the problem; your kitchen staff is.

    I worked at Zaxby's part-time

    Pros

    team members were awesome to work with. This was my first job and I learned a lot working there. The pay was okay for a student.

    Cons

    managers were very shady. they would tell you one thing, then do the opposite. if you're looking for a job to pay the bills, this is not the one for you.

    Pros

    Very flexible, easy job, hours aren't long. The atmosphere is awesome. Love the concept! Corporate is the way to go. I wouldn't work for a franchise.

    Cons

    Can't find good help. No one wants to work accept teenagers. Thank you Obama Care

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pros

    Very nice corp to deal with. Even though most of the locations are privately owned, you still get to deal with the corp side of things a few times a year.

    Cons

    Finding the RIGHT owners to work for. I worked for a few different owners in my course of 7 years and one of them was terrible and cheap, the other two were GREAT!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Screen your owners a little bit more before letting them get into the business.

    I have been working at Zaxby's

    Pros

    The best part is the coworkers. We have become friends, more like a family. Everything else BLOWS!!! NEVER WORK HERE EVER!!!!

    Cons

    Only pay 7.25 regardless of experience, most you can work is 29 hours. Management is mostly lazy. If I didn't have children I would have never accepted this job. Definitely not for grown ups.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have full time regular employees, if you are going to offer such low pay the least you could do was offer 40 hours
