      Flexible hours and good to gain experience at a low level of dining.


      Constant smell of grease and fried food.

        - Fast Paced - Interesting Environment - Not as intense during slower seasons like fall and winter. - A broad board of learning opportunities and training moments. - Flexible scheduling if you prove to be consistent and intend to work full 8 hour shifts once capable of running a shift comfortably - I believe the pay is at least $9.50 starting pay - If capable and have previous management experience it is highly favored, prove to be efficient and a team player with self sufficient skills to manage your station duties while helping to the main task of helping what needs to be done and getting the high volume of customers out with proper food quality consistenticy. -Alot of walking if you like to multi-task. Becoming a carhop, box and fountain or expeditor is fun for this. You can be doing alot and not have to be completely stuck to one part of the store your whole shift


        -Depending on the season and how times are, people are unpredictable and sometimes you have to do your best to remain professional as possible as people will test patience and theres been many chaotic, weird and awkward moments if you really stick with the company long term. You could easily get a job doing drive thru order taker, window or carhop where your directly dealing with people all day. - It can get really crowded pre covid and i hope it never goes back - Alot of teenagers - Immaturity in multiple aspects -low pay -summers are SO hot!! It can get up to 94 degrees inside from poor a/c and such a tiny space for a big kitchen and front -if alot of people who work for the store view you to be a certain way, it seems to be adopted to management as well. You can be overall on time, maybe just bit fast and put purpose in your movement and give your best to provide quick and quality food and remain calm during high volume hours, pre - bias is quickly formed at this store and management where it can be hard to "prove your worth and ability"

      Interview Tips

      Feel free to post any interview questions you might be asked and I’ll help you compose an effective response :)



      Hi everyone, I’m nearing the end of the hiring process with two jobs and I’ve received an offer from one. I’ve been trying to hold out for the other one but at this point, I need to accept an offer if I have it. Any advice on how to professionally reach out one last time to try and get answers on the status of a hiring decision?

      Hello everyone!!! After your first phone call with the ICON recruiter, how long did you wait for feedback? I hope my interview went well.... thanks!!

      I am hopeful I’ll get an offer soon. I have an upcoming 10-day trip in 2 months and am wondering when is the right time to bring it up/negotiate time off: When they send me the offer? If yes, do I tell HR or try to reach out to the manager? When I start the job? A few days after I start?
