    I worked at Long John Silver's full-time for more than 6 years

    Pros

    Personable and professional Management Thomas Leonard at the Desoto, TX branch is the best!

    Cons

    No overtime! Company wont give overtime to non salaried employees.

    Advice to Management

    Work hard! There will be days when you have to work overtime and even if regular salaried employees want the overtime they cant get it.

          Approves of CEO

          I worked at Long John Silver's part-time for more than 2 years

          Pros

          I would say that everything was what you would expect from a normal fast food job. There weren't very many customers because the restaurant isn't really all that popular, so there was lots of downtime.

          Cons

          I didn't really care that much for the shift managers. They really thought too highly of themselves and took their jobs way too seriously for what this is.

          Advice to Management

          Nothing really, keep up the good work.

            .25 cent raises are crap, even in that field in my opinion, especially if your one of the best on the team.
