    I worked at Jason's Deli full-time

    Pros

    Generally fun environment, crew was more like a family than anything, good food, good employee discount, paid vacation for full-time employees (avg. >32hrs/wk for whole year), every day was different. The managers always worked well with schedules, whether it was to work around classes or just for some personal obligation.

    Cons

    Our location was consistently understaffed and usually short a manager as well, which led to having to fight for a break during long shifts and running around like crazy people during the lunch and dinner rushes. We were also supposed to get evaluations every 6 months - I was there just under three years and only had 3 evals (without an evaluation, you cannot receive a raise, at least this is what we were told).

    Advice to Management

    Be honest with your crew. Don't promise them things you either can't or won't follow up on. And stay up to date on your evaluations!
