    I have been working at Rubio's Restaurants part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    100% Discount for your Meal at work.
    50% Discount for family and friends.
    Free (soda) drinks for yourself.
    Knowing you serve quality & healthy food.
    Great co-workers and management.
    Flexible schedule for college students.
    Mileage rienbursement for helping other stores that are a longer drive from your home store.
    Trying new promotion items for free 2x.

    Cons

    Being the face of all guest experiences — and resolving all guest complaints.
    Having to deal with impromptu situations like people calling out at the last minute.
    You will be asked to come in/help other stores on your days off, so expect to be “on call” (although you can always say No, just remember to pick your battles wisely)
    Difficult to get 8 hours a day consistently.

    Advice to Management

    Keep track of all team member’s progress and start doing monthly or quarterly reviews. Try giving more feedback to incentivize better results.
