    I worked at Fuddruckers part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The build your own burger concept is well received by most guests. It's easier to serve guests fresh ingredients. Schedule flexibility for school so-so with another job. They're always hiring and they have a referral payback system. Co workers are nice. This location was 5 minutes from my house.

    Cons

    Hands on means you're going to work 5 jobs a day! No one is spared from their lack of budget my manager would buss tables, cook, fry, clean the floors, and close stations. They worked just like everyone else. EVERYDAY there was me and one manager working for at least 3 hours of the day it definitely stresses you out. If you want hours, close you have to wait for the manager and they leave really late. I know it's for safety but when you close every night waiting forever sucks, the night manager has an hour of paperwork to do, plus counting money and product, checking people out. You might as well sleep on a both until they're done. People are always quitting, there's no way up the ladder the GMs are old as dirt which shows no movement. New managers/teammates come and go quickly.

    Advice to Management

    We're over worked and underpaid, you all should change that. Stop doing BOGOS they're a nightmare they bring in the rudest and cheapest guests. You worry so much about labor that my manager could never properly staff our shifts! It's the worse when a guest is angry you're calling for a manager but they can't go right away because they're on the floor as gsa/ct that night and so instead the people yell at you for not getting the manager quick enough. A refresher course for your GMs would benefit your team, they're dinosaurs, they have no skills. No computer skills, people skills, team building skills, sales building skills. I quit because the writing on your company's figurative walls says dead end job.

    Pros

    The pros of working here are that they are very flexible and will work with your schedule. Also you get a discount on some really good food.

    It gets pretty slow if you have the shift from 11:30-5. Other than that Fuddruckers is a great place to work.

    don’t make employees clean as properly as they should
    black out days (certain holidays and weekends nobody is allowed to request off”
    they’re only closed on thanksgiving and christmas day (at least my location)
    managment and HR do nothing about harrassment

    Advice to Management

    try staying out of the office and actually realize us employees do more work than you and we should be appreciated, not looked down apon

    Pros

    The job is easy enough for what you get paid, 50% of discount is great, easy to get time off

    Cons

    Some workers are lazy, as expected anywhere. Some customers are rude, as expected. They are smooth, slick, sly, and smart. Must be full time to have a large check. Pay every 2 weeks

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to focus on improving the lower range of employees and either turn them into good workers or fire them.
