    I worked at Pei Wei Asian Diner full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Well paid, good benefits, quality food, opportunity for advancement

    Cons

    In the last few years, competition is high so they are cutting corners by getting rid of well paid loyal employees to replace by hiring outside the company so quality has been put on the back burner and employees are treated poorly.

    Advice to Management

    Be ready to work long hours of overtime with little training. They will throw you to the wolves and expect you to fly immediately. So you have to be self motivated to learn, manage your time, and have tough skin when it comes to constructive criticism.
