Featured Review

Current Employee - Sales Associate/Cashier

I have been working at Panera Bread part-time

Pros

This company was great for a college student.

Cons

This company did not have much room to advance.

Current Employee - General Manager

I have been working at Islands Restaurants full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

Strong, fun, and welcoming culture. Career advancement is there for those capable of earning it.

Cons

Not so much an Islands thing, but the industry is in a weird place right now.
