    Pros

    Some coworkers are awesome to talk to

    Cons

    Head manager chooses favorites, gets on to you about uniform even though she doesn't wear uniform (neither do all other managers but 2), you barely get paid for all the stuff you do, customers are rude and dumb, working in the mornings suck because we are understaffed, lots of drama between coworkers, you basically get yelled at for every tiny thing you do, everyone around you is grumpy and lazy.. you get regular guests that get annoying when they get the same stuff.. management only cares about themselves and night shift.

    Advice to Management

    Treat everyone equally and DO NOT play favorites! *side note: let us wear what we want as long as we have our work shirts and non slip shoes on (don't matter the color of the shoes)

    Pros

    Location and transportation made easy.

    Cons

    Unorganized, hazardous, unsanitary,etc
    This was the most disgusting place to ever have to work they left all food out to be served the following day that needed to be refrigerated. Management needs to be at attendance at all times more mature staff team members would help.

    Advice to Management

    Hire people that would like to work that are mature enough to handle the job.

    Pros

    Delicious Food, Good Pay & Benefits

    Cons

    Really early mornings, and lower level management wasn't very well trained, but in all fairness we were a brand new store so they were as new as the rest of us crew members were to the company.

    Advice to Management

    I'm sure management has changed since I worked there
