    Pros

    Willing to work with flexible schedules. They will give more hours to those that work harder. Good atmosphere to work in, always friendly and the people are really nice.

    Cons

    Very hard to move up. Bonuses are only handed out once a year. Pay is based on how long you've been working for them. Managers can earn less than some shift leaders just because they haven't been there as long.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Restructure pay grade. Offer more incentives for people to stay.

    Pros

    nice co workers and boss, flexible hours. The interview was really easy, and you get half off for food up to 10 dollars per day.

    Cons

    There are hardly any breaks, and you have to stand for long periods of time. Some bosses are more demanding than others.
