    I worked at Zaxby's

    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.

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

    Pros

    Fast paced work environment, quarterly bonus program based on performance in key categories, the best chicken by far

    Cons

    District leadership is unnecessarily involved in areas of the business. This confuses all levels of staff including management team on the correct chain of command.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Your success and overall happiness with this job depends on three things - ownership and district supervisors putting their trust in your abilities to successfully run the business, your ability to hire competent, dedicated staff from top to bottom, and your ability to not only work but strive when the rush hits.

    Pros

    Good people and some good days. You are able to meet some cool people every day. Few good experiences.

    Cons

    Terrible pay and work life balance. Benefits are not good unless you are a district manager. Be prepared to be available all the time if you are on salary.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay people more and allow them to have a good work life balance

    Pros

    The manager was willing to work with my college schedule so my hours were flexible and it's a great job for anyone just entering the workforce.

    Cons

    The assistant managers are horrible. I would think they would have to complete some type of interpersonal training skills, but they don't so they talk to anyone however they like, including customers and they had obvious favorites. Too many attitudes for a part time job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better management training.

    The owner is cheap, we do not get benefits as managers such as paid vacation, sick days, paid holidays, we only make $9/hour and it is nearly impossible to receive a bonus.
