    I have been working at Larkburger part-time

    Pros

    Love the food. Nice work environment that genuinely cares about its people. Opportunity to advance and grow with the company. I can become a manager.

    Cons

    This is a great company, poised for real growth, but I wanted fifty hours instead of just 30 or less. They said I could maybe enter a management training program but only after I proved myself

    Advice to Management

    Spend more time in the units with the team and do more culture building. Prices are high but quality is high too. Consider lower prices and less items on the menu

    Pros

    They were very flexible as in scheduling, It was a fun work environment sometimes, You were able to listen to music and the pay was pretty good as well.

    Cons

    They were very unorganized, there were no procedures do anything, scheduling was flexible but you didn't always get the hours you asked for and the management were not masters at their jobs as I felt they should be.

    I have been working at Larkburger part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The costumers are very dedicated and for the most part polite and understanding. Also you get free food which is good.

    Cons

    They are very strict, everything has to be absolutely perfect. Also they pay the very minimum and refuse to give raises no matter how long you are there. And they favor employees

    Advice to Management

    Review your management styles, they need major improvement.

    I worked at Larkburger full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The company looks to promote management from within which I benefited from when promoted form supervisor to Assistant General Manager in about 1 years time. Unique approach to fast casual restaurants that offers opportunities for people who truly care about serving quality food with real ingredients, there are no commissaries and everything is made in-house. I would highly recommend a career with Larkburger for anyone looking for opportunity and growth in a multi-unit restaurant environment who will always call Colorado home.

    Benefits included salary, bonus, paid days off, health/dental and vision insurance, and discounted meals.

    Cons

    As with most restaurant jobs, the hours can be demanding and stress can run high. Larkburger sets very high expectations and upper management will be quick to hold you accountable if you don't meet those expectations.

    I have been working at Larkburger full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    As a chef, I was drawn to the life-work balance Larkburger offered. The culture, focus on ingredients and contemporary cooking techniques were also a pro.
    This is a real working kitchen that produces real food. Crew members are not tossing frozen items in a fryer and in the microwaves. Sauces are made from scratch, potatoes cut by hand and proteins cut in house. Local purveyor are sourced and a featured.
    I was hired on as a hourly paid line cook and took the offer despite all my past kitchen/restaurant experience because I liked the concept and had a vision of how the company would expand and what opportunities would be available. I worked hard every shift and learned the systems and I was offered my own restaurant in less than 3 months.
    Hard work is valued and rewarded.

    Cons

    Anytime a company grows and evolves it has struggles. However, problems are solved, new systems are created and processes refined.
