    Pros

    Flexilbe hours, specially since I was a student at the time.

    Cons

    The one I worked at was an independently owed restaurant and the manager was the worst at making his employees feel appreciated. worked there for almost 3 years and got a 25 cent raise, when I knew how to do everything from cooking at all shifts, drive thru, register, register count ins and outs, etc. I was more than a shift mananger, pretty much assistant but never got promoted. The owner didn't want to give any raises.

    Advice to Management

    Appreciate your employees, specially those that show drive to go up the chain.

    Pros

    I cannot think of a single pro

    Cons

    Immature management, low wages, no 401K match, no training, very little guidance. Be prepared to cya every day there. Easily the worst place I've worked in my entire working career. I was offered FT employment, just to be fired within the next 30 days, after I turned down other opportunities. I would not recommend that ANYBODY considers working here.

    Advice to Management

    I can't speak for all departments but I can say that my HR Management team was the least supportive group I have ever worked with. No training , no support or guidance.

    Pros

    Great coworkers, the company gives out good discounts and coupons to employees.
    Some of the customers are great.
    Got hired same week applied

    Cons

    General manager sucked.
    Never gave days off and didnt work with my school schedule. Only reason i quit was because she didnt want to give me days off for finals. The general manager was never in only came in when she wanted to, even if we were short people she wouldnt help out.

    Advice to Management

    Get a better manager that pays her workers more.
    Some people have been there for so long and they dont get their just pay
