Opportunity for advancement
District Manager (Current Employee) – NC – March 10, 2018
The biggest reason people don't like this job is the fact that you get out of Cookout what you put in.
If you come to work intending on making stupid decisions, you won't have a good day.
If you come to work intending on cruising through the day, just looking to run a shift and go home, your paycheck reflects that.
This company rewards performance pure and simple.
A high-performing store or manager receive bonuses based off how successful the store runs. If you are making profit, you make a profit share bonus. If you can't control your numbers, you don't make the bonus. If you aren't up in sales, same.
If you come in trying to learn something new each day setting the next manager and shift up for success, looking for ways to improve yourself and your store, then you will go far.
If you plan out your day, accomplishing all tasks before you are scheduled to leave for the day, you go home at the exact time your schedule states. If not, you stay till the job is done. Time management and delegating tasks are the difference between a 70-hour week or a 55-hour week and being able to see your family more.
Pay, paid vacation, challenging
