    Pros

    Best pro is weaker fast food chain; less busy for similar wage to others. Advancements are false promises.

    Management hierarchy is very sub standard. Problems don't get fixed even when urgent in timely manner. Avoid for better help.

    Pros

    Food formula's are fairly easy to make and most of them are posted for easy reminders. Most of the food needed was well stocked and fairly easy to locate.

    Cons

    Not every shift leader was on the same page about cleanliness and sanitation protocol. Often asked for food that wasn't ordered for certain customers. Not all equipment worked properly.

    Advice to Management

    Keep all employee's on the same page when cleaning food handling equipment and food contact area's.
