    Pros

    You get to meet so many different types of people and interact with them. You also get to learn about communication.

    Cons

    People are not too kind when it comes to their food. Also, you can be thrown into situations head on without knowing the skills you need to make it through - yet expectations are wild.

    Advice to Management

    Lead by example.

    Pros

    Fun Employees, and Service. Pay is based on performance.

    Cons

    The management is not consistent. You can not tell who really runs the store. And because it is Franchised on the island, it is a bit different than if you worked at a Corporate Store.
