    I have been working at Fazoli's part-time

    Pros

    The management staff is great. There's always something to do. The food is delicious. They switch around the schedule so that way both opening and closing shifts know what the previous shift workers need to help make their jobs easier. And it's overall a genuinely good and positive environment.

    Cons

    The bathrooms smell weird.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work.

    I worked at Fazoli's part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The people there were relaxed and friendly, and the job in and of itself was relatively easy.

    Cons

    The managerial staff was borderline incapable, and while the staff was kind and friendly, they often called off work more than they should've and arrived under the effects of drugs. One manager himself even did cocaine in his spare time when he had a break at work. It was obvious. So very obvious.

    Advice to Management

    Stop hiring drug addicts and high school dropouts that call off work to get high. It's a bad business strategy.

    I worked at Fazoli's part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    -Given plenty of opportunity to learn in areas I wanted to learn in
    -Patient with first-time workers
    -Employee discount was great

    Cons

    -Annual raises were a joke (Worked there 3 years, only earned 50 cents over minimum wage more by the end)
    -Coworkers were a mixed bag
    -Same goes for management

    Advice to Management

    Work harder at incentivising employees to do better by making decent raises a tangible goal and offering other rewards for hard work. This is a minimum wage job, so you should do everything you can to inspire your employees if you want good work from them.
