      Pros

      As with most restaurants, it’s all about management. If the management is good, the experience will be good. Management at the Big Boy I worked for was kind and considerate, and communicated well.

      Cons

      The pay was a bit weak, but that’s because minimum wage is low— pay for a lot of simple jobs is weak. But for a part time job, okay!
