    Pros

    They were very good about adjusting my schedule to accommodate my time-off requests and the people there were very nice most of the time.

    Cons

    Working on the grill during a dinner or lunch rush could get very stressful, and sometimes they didn't have enough people on to cover unexpected rushes.

    Advice to Management

    Let employees help themselves to the soda fountain, and give them a free kids meal for each shift that is at least 8 hours long. It can get really hot behind the grill, and sometimes all you need is a little snack to get back some energy.


  2. "Miserable at best"
