    Pros

    You gain plenty of customer service experience that is a benefit for any job. You get to understand work flow, money handling, cooking, general maintenance of staying neat and clean. Once you work there for about 1 year and more, you get to learn many skills and positions to become flexible in most positions. Working as Team Leader gets you paid 1 dollar extra.

    Cons

    Can be a definite challenge if it is your first job. Everything will feel busy, especially during lunch hours. Sometimes our store would run out of certain products, as that falls upon management. District Manager can be lazy or not care too much to replace broken equipment.

    Advice to Management

    Fix equipment as soon as possible when it becomes broken.

    Pros

    Great hours, great coworkers, definitely helps build character.

    Cons

    If you don’t blindly follow, they will never move you up. They would cut their own legs off just to get back at you. Needs stronger people throughout the day instead of putting them all in one shift. #MorningShifts

    Advice to Management

    Be more concerned with the way employees feel, and try and make them feel like you care, even though we both know you don’t.
