    You could possibly do a lot of things that you couldn't get away with at any other food chain or job in general for that matter

    They'll over work you if you're a hard worker , managers steal, so hard to get a raise, the coworkers can be lazy and probably steal from you as well

    Watch your stores and area mangers closely! They are doing dirty things

    Pros

    Free food if you are in management.

    Cons

    I can't run breaks on any shifts in my store because my floor is so short staffed it's ridiculous. No holiday pay event though we are forced to work all holidays. The management we have in the company that runs my store feels it's appropriate to corner and accuse their employees of things that had nothing to do with them. I wanted to move up in the company and now I just want to run away.

    Advice to Management

    Recognize who your strong employees are and move them up. Use your training program so you have a stable floor and your tls don't have to run 3-4 positions every shift. It runs us down fast
