    Good pay and benefits. Work with some of the best people. If you just want a few hours a week than they are usually very accommodating. They seem to treat the customers decently.

    Cons

    All about the bottom line
    Right now seem to be cutting back on everything from hours, food quality, customer service

    Pros

    Relatively easy, Can be a fun, Tips can offset low wage, Meet people, Mostly good staff, Can get off work early.

    Cons

    Angry Customers, negative atmosphere, Hard to advance/get raises, Shiftwork, Repetitive.

    Advice to Management

    Mostly good management(overworked), upper management could show some appreciation/rewards(christmas bonus?) to frontline employees as they are serving the customers. Don't be so greedy, or lie, everyone can see/notices and long term you will lose repeat business, staff turnover from overworked/undervalued/illness or injury, cutting labour costs weakens product/service declines , more errors, etc.
