      Pros

      A lot of free time to talk to each other. Listening to my music in the car. Making the sandwiches is relaxing to do. Seeing who could make a sandiwich the faster. Making the is so much bread. Cleaning the rest of the stuff.

      Cons

      It always gets a little boring. The cleaning is bad sometimes. The grease trap has a bad smell. I hate when I had to clean the toilers. Opening was annoying because it was very early.

      Pros

      Tips are AMAZING! I work about 20-25 hours per week (full-time college student) and on an average day I make $20-$25/hr

      Cons

      Like any "fast food" job, you will have coworkers or managers that are slightly incompetent

      Pros

      It's better than Wendy's or The Dining Commons. You're not going to die of a heat stroke working here. Supportive team even when understaffed. This isn't a slave labor job like I've been in before.

      Cons

      Understaffed. You need more skills and brains than most other 'fast food' chains to work here. You will work and you will not play with your phone. The menu doesn't make sense and you have to know it.
