    I have been working at Fuddruckers part-time

    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.

    To the owner, not Chris, the owner of the Idaho locations that shut down,...Listen to all management not just the GM. Give the employees a heads up, not the day before, when you decide to close down their location.

    Pros

    You're never bored, always doing stuff. The burgers are really good.

    No room for advancement whatsoever. Getting a raise is beyond difficult and do not plan to work here for long. I worked here during high school and regret staying as long as I did. The wages are very low.

    Advice to Management

    give employees more opportunities to advance. there is little motivation

    I worked at Fuddruckers part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    It's a fast pacing restaurant. Also, there was a lot of people with friendly conversation. And everybody worked as a team for the most part.

    Cons

    Nobody did things the right way. So everything new was a confusion. Training people in different positions and not putting it on the schedule was an issue as well.

    Advice to Management

    Stop being friends with your employees & really learn how to manage. You cannot run a business one way and change it up the next day.

    Pros

    Good place to work if people like you

    Cons

    Managers can be shady and take hours (unpaid wage hours)
    Discrimination can happen and managers plus HR does nothing about
    If not liked your days are numbered

    Advice to Management

    Learn to care about discrimination and do something about it.
    Don't take away hours. I tracked those hours and didn't receive compensation for it.
    HR needs to keep in touch more often about a case and actually help on the case. Instead of ignoring it.
