    Pros

    The teams become family, no matter who gets thrown into the mix everyone is welcome. Higher ups frequently visit restaurants as a source of knowledge and help the staff learn to grow. There are endless opportunities to grow within the business and get promoted.

    Cons

    If you don't know how to take pride in a clean/safe environment and own your station, then this place isn't for you. A lot of people I've met are unhappy with their pay.

    Advice to Management

    Keep looking out for your employees.

    I worked at Noodles & Company part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I enjoyed that the diversity in the people I worked with. I also enjoyed the fast paced environment of N & C. I enjoyed seeing how the food was made, and knowing that they try to use fresh and local ingredients in everything.

    Cons

    It can be stressful when you feel like you do everything from ringing people up, to preparing their food, to waiting on people and cleaning up after them, while trying to maintain the cleanliness of the entire store.

    Advice to Management

    Try to cut down on the online orders, or how much they are prioritized/valued ahead of people who are there in person.
