    Pros

    Good for a summer job and it is interesting to see how the fast food industry operates at all levels.

    Cons

    Management can feel totalitarian and without regard to the bottom level cooks who are needed to actually operate the facility.

    Advice to Management

    When food needs to be out the door in less than 3 minutes, step in to the kitchen to make sure every order is being prompted at the first second and help out where needed.

    Good Pay,Okey benifits-just hate the flow set up to proberly manage very backward

    Cons

    Sent away from family for 10 weeks,training was good.but when you get sent into the real thing its a mess.menu is a mess.then I got the red Buritto what a shame that a good product is thown into unprepared units.with a 3x5 section to work.not very thought out or a idiot thought it out.a shame the stores are let go so much then a good product put in.but milti brands are hard to manage as it is.

    Advice to Management

    Get your stores flowing with a little more ease,listen o those that do it everyday.menu is a mess to much for employees to manage with exceptable service.running these stores with out salery asst.is nuts no way can a manager do this without burn out.

    Pros

    If you are able to do the fast pace work and stand on your feet for 12 hours without a lunch break the medical insurance is great.

    Cons

    Very fast pace work. Long hours on your feet with no lunch break.

    Advice to Management

    Make time for lunch breaks even on busy days and make room for people with disabilities to work the front half of the store instead of the fast pace back line.
