    I worked at Rusty Taco part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I liked working there, close to home takes about 45 minutes on public transportation. Some employees are easy to talk. I loved my schedule!

    Cons

    When you request a day off they sometimes do not grant it to you even if its an emergency. They don't treat everybody equally.

    Advice to Management

    You need to focus on your job. Quit having your favorites. Its not fair to others!

    Advice to Management

    Advice to Senior Management:
    * Be careful who you promote, do not base it on popularity or outside friendships.
    * Listen to your employees, (especially the ones that have been there from the beginning) on how lower management is handling things.
    * Give your employees breaks. This is needed even on the 5 hour shifts.
    * Stop with the gossip.
    * Treat your employees with respect and as adults. Do not demean them, especially in front of customers!!
    * Stop punishing all employees for those who are stealing. Find out who it is and get rid of them, even if they are your favorites.
    * Make your employees feel comfortable in talking with you about employee problems (such as theft), job performance or promotions.

    Pros

    One meal every shift
    Simple jobs like clearing off tables, wiping down equipment, refilling chips and supplies, wiping down trays
    Flexible hours, and in case of changes all you need to do it get your shift covered by another employee... no harm no foul
    Friendly people to work with
    Management will recognize hard work

    Cons

    Never rewarded for hard work
    Very strict on managing overtime
    Employees never included in decision making
    No feedback on how well you are working
    High turnover

    Advice to Management

    Be consistent about enforcing policies
    Make employees feel comfortable about making schedule changes
    Be clear about what is expected from employees
    If an employee exceeds expectations, reward him/her, and then maybe other employees will compete for potential benefits
