    Food discount was amazing. Soup and salad were only 99 cents and then everything else was half off.

    At around $17/entree, prices are too high for part time minimum wage workers in the most expensive U.S. city that were waiting tables through college. It was only after our store got Diamond status, as one of the best in the nation, that we were able to request for a reduced fee for ONLY the soups. I remember being so hungry after coming straight from class but having to wait until my break to run across the block to get a cookie from McDonald’s due to my 10 minute break time limit(so no time for hot food) and management writing people up/cutting hours if anyone ate anything(including breadsticks) without paying. Fair enough, nothing is free but the economic disparity was harsh and management did not even bat an eye at it’s “disposable” work force. I’ve worked over a decade in restaurants and most of them had a family meal. Everything is a learning experience, thanks for making me stronger.

    You are given an employee discount and you get up to 3 months of leave per year (great for college students). You are also eligible for yearly raises based on job performance. However you don't get 401K benefits, health or dental insurance, or social security unless you are in management.
