Pros

decent place to work if you're going to school. everything depends on who is the leader of your store. people are cool. management is great. food is good. benefits are excellent.

Cons

pay isn't good. can be some heavy lifting required at times. full time is the only way to make a living wage. if you do go full time, expect to have no life.

Advice to Management

you're profitable, you don't need my feedback. i can quit.

    Pros

    decent starting pay, fun atmosphere, employee discounts, quick pace. there is never a dull moment. you can wear shorts to work

    Cons

    reviews can be very disappointing if you are expecting a big raise. i think they are out of touch with a living wage in this city. Scheduling is insane. open one day and close the next and then open again. apparently sleep is for the competition.

    Advice to Management

    study what a living wage is for a part timer. rents should not be more than i can make in two weeks. what the heck is with scheduling turn arounds. my guess is that you want to make it impossible for your average worker to work two jobs which by the way is necessary for those of us at the lower level if we want to do more than just live paycheck to paycheck. ps stable schedules might even lower your workers comp bills because better sleep schedules should translate into fewer accidents.

    Pros

    upbeat environment, great customer base, good pay, great health-benefits, 2 pay-raise reviews a year, 10 percent employee discount, overall good company to work for

    Cons

    very slow advancement due to company practice of hiring due to time put in rather then capability, due to operations being open 22 hours shifts are usually late night and early morning.

    Advice to Management

    middle management needs to be more involved in promotions as a way to avoid large pool of individuals that are ineffective leaders
