    I worked at Smashburger part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Coworkers were awesome, they were fun to work with. Perks weren't bad, 50% off food. It would be a good summer job for highschoolers or college students but it would be difficult to balance the hours with schoolwork once school started again.

    Cons

    Incompetent managers and long hours. Always had to look busy so I don't get yelled at. Very poor training, I was trained by workers who had only been working for weeks. The managers did not bother training the new employees. For every 6 hours, you get 2 ten minute breaks and a 30 minute lunch.

    I have been working at Smashburger full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Medical after 30 days.

    Cons

    Long hours and usually during the peak hours like 11 am to 10 pm or close. Hard to have a social life or a quality family life. It puts a HUGE strain on family life as you cannot do much since you are working during the lunch and dinner hours and usually when you get home you have missed your kids and dinner with the family. No weekends off and no vacation for first year of employment.
