    Pros

    Really did enjoy the job and most of the people that I worked with.

    Cons

    Corporate didn't supply the needed of anything. Budget, management, repairs, or well really anything else.

    Advice to Management

    Increase the amount afforded to the individual stores.You can't raise sales when your food budget is to tight to order what is needed; or when equipment breaks down and it can't get repaired because the home office wont approve the costs.
