    Pros

    Steady work if you prove yourself a hard worker.

    Cons

    Upper Management has very minimal management knowledge and skills to make shop run efficiently. Always problems addressed, but never resolved until it effects them directly. Been waiting for 6 month review since July and its December. Not a good place to work if you're going to raise a family.

    Advice to Management

    Learn how to manage in general.

    Pros

    Job is easy, just need to be able to make measurements. Certainly much better than other fast food jobs.

    Cons

    Management was a disaster on third shift. The store manager constantly watched the camera without any significant solutions to a plague of production issues.

    Advice to Management

    Place more power in the hands of middle management at the stores. Make sure your employees are trained more competently to avoid constant production hang ups.
