    I worked at Penn Station full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I enjoyed the customers as well as the food. I was happy working all on the line. Family friendly. I took my kids

    Cons

    Some of the challenges was not having proper workers at all hours. In the evenings we could have used a couple more people as we got busy at night too.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to appreciate your workers. Stay open later. Open one out in Las Vegas

    I have been working at Penn Station full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Free food, flexible schedule, I can get days off with no problem especially at the last minute. My location is pretty busy so time goes by pretty quickly.

    Cons

    Management and Corporate have a crazy mentality that can be unreasonable to pull off. Hard to hire people leaving us short a lot. It's hard to get a fixed schedule every week. NO benefits at all whatsoever, even f you're management.

    Advice to Management

    Just talk to your employees and hear what they have to say and try to take it into consideration. We are not robots as much as you would expect us to be. When there is an issue try to deal with it instead of acting like it never happened.

    Pros

    Half off food, flexible schedule, customer service experience, taking pride in a clean and friendly work environment

    Cons

    It was minimum wage when I worked there, but they've increased their wages in my area recently. That would've been my biggest complaint.
