    Pros

    It's a great environment. Fun and energetic. I loved my co-workers. The bosses take care of you. I love the management. They are wonderful. Family fun atmosphere.

    Cons

    Long hours. Pay kinda sucks. But other than that I would say that it's kinda exciting. Don't let your lines get so long. Angry costomers

    Advice to Management

    Let your employees have a little bit more fun. Don't be so serious. I love the DQ but I think we should be creating an atmosphere where we can have fun and do our job.
