not a good place to work if you require a social life or have kids
Crew Trainer (Former Employee), High Point, NCNovember 24, 2014
As I said above this company is great fro single people looking to work crazy hours in order to have money and never spend it because the one day you get off a week you will be so tired all you do is sleep. But it varies on the location of your store. The store I was located at was very easy going with raises.

productive in a fast pace environment
Cashier/Customer Service (Current Employee), Raleigh, NCOctober 30, 2014
Pros: management
Cons: not enough income
In a fast pace environment like cookout, you have to be on point with everything. The likes and the dislikes of customers , remembering their normals and there orders is a very difficult part, but you got to multi task. Multi tasking in a fast pace restaurant you have to count money and deliver the right food to the right customer in the least amount – more... of time. The management is very nice they help you with anything you need help with. The most enjoyable part of my job is the customers attitude towards fast food and their excitement and energy. Things i learned in the business overall, is how to multi task and still keep the customers satisfied and coming back. – less

Always kept me busy
Cook (Former Employee), Richmond, VAAugust 4, 2014
Pros: always busy
Cons: tight working space
I enjoyed working at Cook Out. I enjoyed working with and got along with my co-workers. I loved our busy Friday and Saturday nights. This is truly a company where team work is demonstrated on a daily basis and the managers don't mind getting their hands dirty as well.

Enjoyable work place
STORE & FOOD ADMINISTRATOR (Former Employee), 125 N. Ridgewood Avenue, Daytona Beach, FL 32114March 25, 2014
Pros: flex hours
Cons: no holidays
Typical day would include phone calls, data entry, AR & AP, payroll and working on financial statements.

I have learned to multi-task and reprioritize as the day progresses.

Co-workers made the day enjoyable.

The hardest part of the job was keeping everyone on task when changing direction.

The most enjoyable part of the job was helping others achieve – more... their goals. – less

Cashier (Former Employee), Durham, NCFebruary 27, 2014
You can get a lot of hours and over time.
Worked for two years and still only got minimum wage, no pay raises.
No chance for management.
District Manager was bias and talked down to workers.

Work environment
Traveling Co-Manager (Former Employee), Charlotte, NCDecember 31, 2013
Pros: free meals and open minded environment
Cons: hardly any breaks and spend more time at than with family
-Roughly at least 25 hours of overtime
-A typical day is managing mangers, crew leaders, and crew members (as well as managing labor percentages, labor dollars being spent on the staff members, and sale goals)
- The bond with the staff members is unbelievable, you meet so many different people with different backgrounds, beliefs, and personalities. – more... This job has definetely opened my mind to others and helped me learn to bond with others from all different viewpoints
-The hardest part of this job is knowing wether or not if the knowledge you put your hard work, heart, and dedication into for the staff to gain is taken seriously and will be used smartly – less

Crew Leader (Current Employee), Lincolnton, NCSeptember 16, 2013
Cons: no healthcare, not much room or opportunity to move up.
As a crew leader, my day varies. Sometimes I worked with customers taking orders, passing out food etc. Then other times I work in the kitchen. It is part of my job to keep up morale of the team and make sure the mood has been set for the day.

Good food, bad management
Cashier (Former Employee), Oxford, NCMay 23, 2013
I Loved working there because of the customers and I always got along. I learned how to make a customer feel better if I did something wrong. Me and all of my co-workers got along just as anywhere else. It was nothing hard about the job. What I enjoyed most about the job was how meeting new people and making new frriends.

Fast Food place with the best food and milkshakes
Cashier/Cook (Former Employee), Hartsville, SCMarch 4, 2013
Pros: fun place to work
Cons: not enough hours
A typical day at work would be ong, tiring, and hard. With all the customers and their different personalities, its a lot of work. I learned a lot about having patience and being an amazing worker. The management wasnt all i hoped for. Most of the co-workers were hard but at the end of the day we are a team. The hardest part of the job was the drive – more... thru on a Saturday. The most enjoyable part was meeting new people and making new friends. – less

Cook (Former Employee), Hickory, NCFebruary 13, 2013
At this job i was a fry cook so i maintained the fry station by dropping food in and taking the food out at the right time. I learned how to work a deep fryer and prep food. Management was the best i have been around they knew what they were doing at all times. My co-workers were fun to be around. the hardest part of the job was trying to hear the speaker – more... for call out orders. Most enjoyable part was being in a fun and fast paced environment – less
