      Pros

      Managers, shift manager, and teammates were very helpful and fun to be around at least at my location.

      Cons

      Like any other job at a restaurant the closing shift has to clean up the entire kitchen, but usually with everyone working together it doesn't take too long.

      Great values but no work/life balance

      Pros

      I loved the company’s core values and the experience they strived to bring their guests.

      Cons

      There is no work/life balance and when things go wrong, it will require you sacrificing everything else in your life to fix it. There were months where I worked from open to close, 7 days a week—totaling about 95 hours a week and I received no OT pay and no real assistance from my direct supervisor.

      Slackers Rewarded

      Pros

      Great place to work while looking for a better job or if you are in school and need a flexible schedule.

      Cons

      Lousy pay (to be expected when working food). More importantly, no one can leave at close until everyone's station is clean... so the hard workers who want to go home have to make up for the slackers smoking out back all night, one of which is the Assistant General Manager.

      Great potential with some old guard managers not held to account.

      Pros

      Opportunity to rise within the company.

      Cons

      Understaffed through management. This leaves many 'bad seed' managers throughout their stores. (NW Chicago suburbs)
