    Pros

    Great company to work for with a world class culture. One of the few jobs I've had where everyone wanted to be there.

    There were no negative aspects to the job. Long hours but I chose to work them ;)

    I worked at K & N Management full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The values of the company are something that you can be proud of as an employee. The quality of the goods and services provided by K&N management are nothing if not exceptional. They have a fair management team, high starting salaries, great benefits, family friendly. They evaluate your individual performance and promote those individuals who strive for excellence. They are a Malcolm Baldridge national quality award winning company recognized for their achievements. I would definitely recommend attending their franchise establishments "Rudy's BBQ" in the Austin area or their independently owned "Mighty Fine Burgers" as a customer or employee if your are looking for a promising career in the "food service" industry.

    Cons

    When you leave K&N Management, you will critique your next employer on their inefficient methods of operation and reminisce about the good ole' days at K&N Management' with continuous quality improvement.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work, and keep raising K&N Managements quality standards. Anything below excellent is a failure!

    I worked at K & N Management full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Amazing staff & coworkers! We had many opportunities to do volunteer work to help out the community! Depending where you work, they make it fun by doing bingo which adds extra cash in your pocket;)

    Cons

    If you work the mighty fine truck, It can get really hot during the summer OR really cold during winter.

    I worked at K & N Management full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Pay, hours, benefits, atmosphere, expectations

    Cons

    strict uniform, strict procedures, hierarchy of trainers vs. regular hourly employees

    Advice to Management

    Make sure your trainers (coaches) know that they're working to build a better store, not tearing down the confidence and fun of the overall team member and atmosphere.

    I worked at K & N Management part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great starting pay, friendly coworkers, lots of opportunities for increased pay, excellent place to have on resume for future retail jobs

    Cons

    Very pushy about donating large amounts to whatever cause they're currently supporting, which on a relatively low income is tough. Store management is occasionally incompetent.

    Advice to Management

    Lay off the push for donations. Your employees, though well paid for a service job, don't have the money to donate $100 (10 hours of work) to someone else.

    I worked at K & N Management full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    You come to work for K&N Management at any of their Mighty Fine Burgers locations because you hear about the wonderful company culture, the worker benefits, the relatively high compensation, and the people. All of these things are true and they're available.

    Cons

    The way K&N tends to select their managing staff by just going down the ladder and getting the next closest person to take the job. It's not necessarily a bad methodology, but sometimes more qualified people are passed up for management because of this system. Especially when the person on the next level down from manager has only been in his supervisory position for 2 months.

    Advice to Management

    Pay more attention to how managers are hired

    I worked at K & N Management full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Malcolm Baldrige Award winner in Small Business Category, 2010
    Competitive salary for entry-level food service positions
    Generally a fun atmosphere to work in, depending on the managers you have

    Cons

    No tips
    One 15 minute break during a 9-hour shift (I am certain this is not how the corporate office is run)
    Other entry-level food service employees tend to be potheads, drink a lot, gossip, be irresponsible, etc. This was ultimately why I left. I used to look forward to going to work, and eventually, the other people I was having to spend the bulk of my time with really dragged me down and caused work to be a negative environment.

    Advice to Management

    Consider drug testing to discourage drug use. Other peoples' drug use had the biggest negative impact on my working experience and precipitated my decision to leave. I am certain that the corporate office is an amazing work environment -- it is too bad that my experience in an entry-level position did not compare to it. Once I finished school, I seriously considered applying for a position in the corporate office, but ultimately decided to go in another direction.
