Sales Representative (Former Employee), San Bruno, CA – February 27, 2013
A typical day at work consists of maintaining a welcoming and clean environment. I have learned how to provide good customer service. The management did not care about their employees. We had no workers compensation. The hardest part of the job is dealing with difficult customers. The most enjoyable part is learning how to work as a team with my coworkers.

I loved many of my co-workers here , however management wasn't as great. I found it it difficult to balance school with having a job here, the manager wasn't as accommodating. Another issue I had was our manager didn't keep tabs on each of our duties and if one person messed up we would all get the blame and sometimes written up. The job itself was – more... not very challenging and was fun helping customers.It was an experience to learn from and I was grateful to have the opportunity. – less
Very friendly place. Best place to find great food at low price.

Best part of my job was the people I got to work with, and the customers I got to help. My management time was wonderful they all felt like good friends to me. Worked very well with each other.
