    I worked at Johnny Rockets (More than a year)

    Pros

    The work environment is friendly and overall, the customers who come have a special loyalty to the brand which makes it easier to work there. The feel of the stores is fun

    Cons

    The fact that it is fast, but also a sit-down restaurant provides its own challenges, but it's nothing that can't be dealt with. A lot of people who don't know the store think it's fast-food and that makes being a server much harder.

    I have been working at Johnny Rockets part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Get a family based clientele. Young staff so every gets a long really well and very flexible hours so it is a great job when you are going to school.

    Cons

    Uniforms.
    little room for advancement and the management staff has been a mess for a long time. Could really use some rebranding.

    Advice to Management

    Needs revamping of brand
    Needs to create more of an online presence

    I worked at Johnny Rockets full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Owners of the franchise were caring and kind people. Management got free meals, worked for salary, and paid time off.

    Cons

    Corporate did not properly support the store -- they lacked communication and training for our store. Overall I felt let down by the Johnny Rockets company.

    Advice to Management

    Put as much effort into franchises as you do corporate locations.

    Pros

    I loved the environment there, very fun and family-feel. I learned many things from the time that I worked there. It was a great experience.

    Cons

    It was just stressful for me to be a waitress so I sought other career opportunities. Pay could have been better, even for an entry-level, part-time job.

    Advice to Management

    I didn't have a long enough training (I was put by myself on the 2nd or 3rd day), so make sure you train your employees well. :)

    It was a good company to work for since it was a franchise and the owner cared about his employees.

    Wearing white aprons is kinda ridiculous when working with food.
