    Pros

    Great customers and most employees are good and nice . Pay is decent for fast food and they try to compensate for experience

    Management is terrible. They will cuss you out and laugh about it with the other managers and if you try and say something they will get the GM involved and accuse you of stealing to get you fored which is actually what they are doing.

    Just because they are on your management team doesn't mean they are trust worthy those are your biggest criminals !
