    The customers can be very rude, but there's nothing that can be done since it is in the middle of a college town.

    Advice to Management

    Offer incentives to work harder

    I worked at Rusty Taco full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Most co workers were nice and easy to work with.

    Cons

    The management plays favorites and gives hours to only the certain employees. Management lies to employees. They do not value hard workers.

    Advice to Management

    Value employees based on their hard work not how you feel about them personally.

    Pros

    Great food made fresh. Depending on the team in the restaurant it's a fun place to work.

    Cons

    The owner, the owner, and the owner.

    Advice to Management

    Owner: Stop saying you respect your people when in reality you don't. Try something new and actually start to respect them. It should be about your people not you.

    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Rusty Taco full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    no late nights Nice concept if we had good upper management.

    Cons

    Upper management has no clue on operations, Micro managers the people. Never good enough. Very high expectations and unreasonable.

    Advice to Management

    In two years all four stores in Denver have had 2-3 RGM's either quit or were fired and 3 district managers. What does that tell you! This is only for the corporate stores in Denver and Dallas.
