    I worked at Macado's part-time

    Pros

    Pretty decent money during the season. Laid back atmosphere and good food for not very much money. That's about it!

    Cons

    No management, the managers are too busy cooking to actually help. They get mad when you ask questions and there was almost zero training.

    Advice to Management

    Train your servers better! Be more understanding when they have questions. Be managers, not cooks! Overall, improve across the board.

    Pros

    Good food and good team atmosphere.

    Cons

    Since food was cheap, tips tended to be less.

    Advice to Management

    Since low tips, increase base pay.

    Pros

    Close to campus and pretty flexible hours.

    It was a college town, small town, not a lot of tipping going on.

    Pros

    The hours were always flexible unless you were management, the pay was standard, and the staff was relaxed.

    Cons

    There is little room for growth. You either become a manager and work 55-60 hours a week or move on to a better job.

    Advice to Management

    There are always better ways to do things, if you aren't willing to try new ideas and innovate the company won't succeed.

    I worked at Macado's part-time

    Pros

    Laid back depending on the manager
    Allowed to take smoke breaks if you were a smoker
    50% off food when on the clock
    Could leave early if it was slow as long as you weren't a closer

    Cons

    Servers had to do all the dishes, including those from the kitchen at the end of the night, yet didn't get paid any extra for this. You could be back there doing dishes and then get in trouble because it took you too long to get to your table.
    The tips sucked, people seemed to think since it was a sandwich place you didn't have to tip even though it was a full service restaurant.
    Horrible about scheduling, especially if you were in school

    Advice to Management

    Actually pay attention when making schedules, keep up with the people who don't do their part with dishes and cleaning, stop with the favoritism.

    I have been working at Macado's full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    None. It's a total crap hole. They take advantage of you and all they care about is money

    Cons

    Everything. They treat you like garbage. You work 60+ hours a week without extra pay. No breaks. And you're treated like an idiot.

    Advice to Management

    Stop treating your employees like morons!
