    I worked at Zaxby's full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    - Able to make my own schedule
    - Free food for shift
    - Ability to make changes to structure as I saw fit
    - Ability to be creative with training and my staff
    - The satisfaction of running a successful store and training great employees!

    Cons

    - Necessary to follow chain of command even if it doesn't make some people "happy"
    - Not a whole lot of cons. A lot of "cons" just come with the business and this type of environment. There is nothing the 'company' could do to change it.

    Advice to Management

    - Follow chain of command

    I have been working at Zaxby's full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    No early mornings, not as busy as most fast food places

    Cons

    They advertise 40-55000/year for mgmtsbd up to 10/hour for employees. That's not what they pay for 99% of their employees. Turnover is very high because of the empty promises.

    Advice to Management

    Stop deliberately lying in your recruiting material about what you pay.

    Pros

    Work can be slow at times. Employee discount.

    Fix training, more pay raises, give benefits.
