    Pros

    In most cases, they will work around your schedule. You get 50% off of meals, while on the clock. You can usually get your requested off days.

    Cons

    It took me 2 and a half years to get a raise from $7.25 to $7.50. There isn't much room to advance and make enough money to maintain a decent living.

    Best small company to work for. Hands down I would recommend this company to anyone.

    I can't see many cons except the fact that they haven't grown much and deserve it by far.

    Advice to Management

    keep your head held high and proud and don't give up. It can only go forward here on out.

    Pros

    If you're looking for a good workplace to build a lawsuit against, apply here.

    Cons

    District manager happily turns a blind eye on complaints from employees regarding harassment and employer misconduct. Unnecessary for a minimum wage job to be this stressful.

    Advice to Management

    They don't care, so I won't waste time writing advice.
