      Pros

      [Worked for ~2 years and some change] 1) If you're sheltered, it's a great way to see what real life is like for most people 2) If you have the capacity to take on responsibility, it will be noticed because most of your coworkers will not 3) Allows for personal growth 4) Learned to fry, skate, stop using calculators, make delicious drinks/mixers, and most importantly, that I needed to be somewhere else. -Ran by kids

      Cons

      -Started off Sub-minimum wage as a carhop (~5-6$/Hr), and didn't get a raise until I took on multiple rolls. -Ran by kids, which is fun (when you're a kid)

      Pros

      They were/are hiring on the spot . Most the employees and managers were really nice and pleasant to work with.

      Cons

      The pay is crazy low.. below minimum wage, plus tips. When I was hired management said I’d be making most my money in tips , However the tips you get are little to none . Also at the end of every night you are supposed to give them money that you owe the store ( from cash payments from orders throughout the day ) my wallet would often somehow magically be short, and when that happens you are supposed to cover however much you are short. Leaving me to give them any personal tips I made and give it to the company . I’m not sure how anyone can live off of working here .But most people that work there are under age , so that’s probably why they don’t mind working with such a low income.

      Pros

      The company offers free drinks to its employees, as well as half-price food.

      Cons

      The company offers minimum wage, at best. The starting cooks make less than > 7 an hour, despite being in a hot kitchen for 8 hours a day. Carhops make only 5.25 an hour, which, unfortunately is legal. They presume that carhops will make tips, but this simply isn't true. Crew members make minimum wage, but seeing as most crew members run around constantly, the pay just isn't enough. Would not recommend.
