    I have been working at Hungry Jack's full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    good work load, staff become like family, heaps of advancement opportunities, great training, decent pay, courses paid for by the company, managing a team is fun, customers can sometimes be amazing and you really get to connect with people, the right attitude makes running shifts fun, bonuses and incentives provided all the time

    Cons

    not alot of days off for management roles, requesting time off can sometimes be difficult (actual holiday periods over christmas etc not allowed), expected to stay back most days (unpaid), budget restraints make it difficult to run things, shift work sometimes means working at all hours of the day, grumpy customers can dampen your mood (same with all jobs)

    Advice to Management

    Take the time to listen to your employees. Hire more casual managers who are on call for when management shifts need to be filled/covered.

    Pros

    For me, the management is great. I enjoy working with my coworkers, they are what make me want to stick around in my job.

    Cons

    The customers I deal with on a daily basis can be difficult due to them being rude and treating me like I am less than them.

    Advice to Management

    Keep listening to your employees, keeping them happy results in happy customers. Maybe rotate jobs while working as it does get boring doing the same repetitive job for 6 hours.
