    I have been working at Schlotzsky's (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I work at a store in Albuquerque, NM. A lot of the customers are regulars always getting the Original, although the menu has expanded. I work for the customers satisfaction. It's getting seeing a smile on their face from just making their food.

    Cons

    Family operated so the "outsiders" are over worked having to do all the cleaning and trash detail since the store is so unkept from the family just sitting back and collecting a check. If you show you are a good multtasker they will use that to their advantage and over work you.

    Advice to Management

    Treat employees equally, meaning if I can't be on my phone neither can family. Everyone should care about the up keep of the store and not be afraid to get their hands dirty. Have more organization of day to day task. Done run off hard workers.

    I worked at Schlotzsky's full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great discount on food. A varied staff from all walks of life. Surrounded by hard workers and often times friendly coworkers. The franchise owners are very nice and practical persons.

    Cons

    I was hired as full-time, a manager came in and hired two or three high-schoolers and cut all of our full-time schedules down to part time. It was very frustrating to see a schedule come up on the board and see 24 hours after being hired on as full-time. Some of the shift were 10+ hours which were too long. I had two managers, one was fun and awesome, the other was stressed out and difficult to work for. She walked around and made sure we were moving at all times, which was irritating to say the least. The nights when we had our fun manager, I would argue that things were done better, the customers were happier, just because the team moral was so high. In jobs like this, a manager that takes their life way too seriously can make a $10 an hour job a nightmare. After she changed my hours every week and inconsistently changed my days, I just quit one day because at some point you have to just make a change.

    Advice to Management

    I'd advise to really do what you can to keep the staff moral high. One great way to do this, is to have managers that give employees consistent schedules and hours. If you have an employee with five 8 hours shifts the same time each week, you'll have someone who will work hard consistently.

    I have been working at Schlotzsky's (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good friends, easy work,upbeat atmosphere

    Cons

    Forced to work fast, (often faster than physically able to just to reduce labor costs)
    Sent home early regardless of number of hours given to a person for a particular day if there aren't enough customers. Often that means not being able to complete the tasks one is given.

    Advice to Management

    If you give an employee a job to do, let them do it without the threat of being sent home early due to labor costs and the fact there may not be too many customers on the day the employee is sent home early.

    Pros

    The people you work with in store on a daily basis is great. A great job for a college student.

    Cons

    I do not think the marketing department knows what they are doing. None of their ad campaigns are clever or in touch with post modern consumer, especially with the millennial demographic. Competitors such as Whataburger and Denny's have such clever social media presences and this chain is lackluster at best.
