    I have been working at Checkers Drive-In full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The ability to learn your numbers and create opportunities for others to grow and develop. Checkers/Rally's is a great company with unlimited potential.

    Cons

    Some of the Cons would be no official effective training program for General Managers, Shift Managers or Crew. It teaches the basics but never empowers the individual to achieve positive end results. I am referencing some "Franchises".

    Advice to Management

    Empower your people...The results of your team will only become a reality if the leader is "Present"...Stay engaged in the moment...Monitor to Manage.
