    I worked at Zaxby's full-time

    Pros

    Pretty relaxed work environment as long as you do your work. The employees were fun to be around and I miss a lot of them.

    Cons

    Work-Life balance was challenging. There was about a month where I got 1 day off a week and even on that day off I was being asked to come in to work. At one point I had worked 11 days in a row.

    I have been working at Zaxby's part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The people are very nice and all work together to have a smooth shift. I haven't had any problems with staff or management.

    Cons

    The only "con" of zaxbys is when the customers ask to have their food cooked longer and we aren't allowed to do that so the customer usually gets kind of mad.

    Only con is the turn over rate with the food industry it’s so hard to keep a good crew for a long time. I hate investing my time and energy into making someone a great asset to the company when they leave the next week.

    Pros

    The restaurant is very clean. Everyone is friendly and willing to help. Management does a good job of making sure food prep is done by the book.

    Cons

    10 hours of standing on your feet, in a fast paced environment without a break, leaves one hurting and sore.

    Advice to Management

    You're doing a great job. Keep it up.
