    I worked at Hot Dog on a Stick part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Met some cool people, made a couple friends

    Cons

    This is the worst job i've ever had, bad hours, always worked alone, unless it was a weekend. we had chores that had to be done daily and biweekly. if we didn't do our chores, we got written up. we never had time to do our chores because we worked alone and many chores were done in the back. My boss was nice, and so were some of my coworkers. But our bosses idea of making us work together was putting us AGAINST each other. didn't work, made us not want to work harder. Most of us quit around the same time. our boss kept making up rules that were pointless, and wrote us up for things that weren't job related.

    Advice to Management

    Work on finding better ways to connect with employees and have at least two people working at once.

    I worked at Hot Dog on a Stick part-time

    Pros

    The pros of working at hot dog were that it was a fun environment. Made life long friendships with do workers. Since the job was so much fun it made the work easier. I miss working here so much.

    Cons

    Some downsides to working here were when we had to work alone especially during the holidays and it got busy. And long hours which is one of the reasons I had to leave, because I just had a son.
