    Pros

    Working with crew members and managers who eventually start seeming like family. You will easily pick up on good customer service, listening skills, food service standards, and cleaning guidelines. Relatively flexible, fluctuates at your dictation whether you want 10 or 35 hours a week. Ability to advance (multiple opportunities for management positions)

    Cons

    Difficult to get a raise despite lots of vocal praise from managers. Sometimes rude and ungrateful customers for things out of your control.

    Advice to Management

    Show your exceptional crew members appreciation with a raise. Soon after they're reminded that they're making the same as some bums as coworkers, they'll look for greener pastures.

    Pros

    Great people, community involvement, a brand you can be part of and proudly "own it."

    First paycheck took extra time to go through because of I9 form complications. Pay can be less than acceptable at times. Scheduled varied greatly a couple time from week to week.
