    Pros

    Great managers and coworkers for the most part. Also, a good company to work for. Pays a fair bit more than minimum wage too.

    Cons

    Managers are very focused on customer experience so sometime associates get in trouble simply because the customer wasn’t happy even if they didn’t do anything wrong.

    Advice to Management

    Give employees benefit of the doubt and don’t make them recite lengthy sales pitches to everyone they interact with.

    Pros

    Pleasant Managers
    Flexible scheduling
    Decent pay
    Stock after a year
    Keeps you on your toes
    Provides multiple work shirts/aprons
    Coupons every month
    Rewards customer compliments with free sub

    Cons

    I lose the bonuses I earn when they raise the base pay. Like I started at $9.75 (25 cents above base), then they raised the based to $10. After a year, I earned two raises to have $11/hr. Then they raised the base pay to $11. I now earn the same or less than someone who just started (Since they give small raises at start if you worked in the industry before). That's not really fair.

    Advice to Management

    Work on pay fairness. I think you would retain more employees that way.
