Excellent Insurance compared to many other companies if not working for a franchise location
Good Pay if not working for franchise location

Cons

Expect long hours and no comp time
Training is not consistant
No work life balance with the job
Labor guidelines are tighter than many other companies

Advice to Management

Really mean it when you say you do not want your managers to work over 55 hours per week. Adjust labor guidelines to take into consideration such things as schedule creation, food orders, and checking in the truck.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Years ago they had focus and cared about management teams. Pension to everyone including crew.

    Cons

    You're just a number to them. Everyday our focus changes. Nobody now's who's going to be the next boss. I had 4 in the last 2 years. Now they are all worried about their jobs everyone is in a panic. Stabbing each other in the back trying to hold on to their jobs. The names are changing daily in the white castle. Ex Exxon Oil managers are in charge of the company and selling it off to the franchise.

    Advice to Management

    Run! You'll never know which way is up!!!
