    Pros

    Employees
    Easy work
    Some managers are very nice
    The food
    The ability to know everything in store
    And I love cleaning there
    The customers are amazing

    Cons

    Giving me hours that's not my avalibility, and are really long. I don't mind working out my schedule but they never asked me and got mad when I asked about it.
    The drive thru is the job nobody likes dojng including me because they put us back there all the time it's always busy and a rush but I can keep up with it, I like it being busy actually. And some managers are rude and treat employees like they don't work for them.

    Advice to Management

    The management can be better, if you apply to the job and actually do your job it'll be easier to get through the day instead of stressing about little situations on the job. Your at work to work not goof around with employees. Take it serious your a manager your supposed to lead by example.
