    Pros

    Work with some great people. The pay is not bad.

    Cons

    some people work hard and others do not. They operate by seniority and not by whose best for a certain job. Employees with more seniority tend to do much less than people at the bottom. This leaves employees feeling resentful towards others. Management watches this happen and nothing is done about it. I've work for have 20yrs. Left for 3 weeks and was rehired. Lost all seniority.

    Advice to Management

    Try to get on the same page when it comes to your rules. Don't change them to best suit your agenda. This leaves employees feeling resentment towards management and other employees.

    Pros

    Friendly coworkers

    Fast training

    Adequate pay - enough to let me pay my own way through college

    Flexible scheduling

    Cons

    Since every store is semi-independent, some decisions regarding employee review times and pay raises may vary depending on the store manager's preferences.

    It seems to me that advancement (at least in upper-level positions) depends less on skill and more on who you know within the company.

    At least at my store location, unrealistic demands placed on departments by upper management; things that weren't feasible based on the amount of help we had or how busy we were.

    Pros

    ok pay, most employees fun

    Cons

    bad management rude talk down to employees, I heard a kitchen manager call an employee fat, slow, worthless and more, I went to work as a full time employee worked my shift went to the schedule and I am off it, I ask why they said well you quit. I go to the director he says yea you quit I say no I did not so I guess I am fired. what's wrong with that picture

    Advice to Management

    treat everyone the same, don't let your good employees go just because of rumors, shouldn't steal from places you do catering (wildlife)
