    I worked at Not Your Average Joes part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Sometimes you get free food, and the staff is really awesome

    Cons

    The managers are terrible. They do not think of you as a human whatsoever. When going out of your way for them they completely ignore you. They are unprofessional, rude people and the restaurant would do a lot better if they just got rid of them. They also do not work with your schedule whatsoever and have no empathy for their workers.

    Advice to Management

    Suck less

    I worked at Not Your Average Joes part-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    They were always very flexible with my schedule, I learned A LOT, it was the perfect intro to the restaurant world, you get free food sometimes, I made some of my best friends working there

    Cons

    Management comes and goes, as in any chain restaurant - you have to take the good with the bad. Also, the uniforms changed about 5 times the whole time I worked there and they don't reimburse you. As a poor college student that was not fun. Also, there was normally a lack of communication but that is on everyone's backs.

    Advice to Management

    - Better communication within the company - Managers should empower their servers and staff more ie. give tips on how to increase your ppc average, ideas on how to consolidate tasks

    I worked at Not Your Average Joes full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great team environment, free food, fair wages, managers and chefs are very accessible for questions and concerns. Very strict adherence to recipes ensuring quality product.

    Cons

    The hours and schedule can be very stringent and it is sometimes hard to produce the work expected of you in a reasonable amount of time. Overtime is almost non-existent.

    Advice to Management

    Loosen the purse strings on the labor budget. A higher hourly rate is a bonus that can't be taken advantage of without the hours being available.
