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

Alot of Work and little Pay!
Manager (Former Employee), Sumter, SCSeptember 18, 2012
Average work week 65 hours....$620 a week gross pay equals $9.53 an hour! not good at all for a management position. No direct deposit and no 401k or retirement plan...people get fired here often managers and employees. you have employees who have just become managers while being with the company 16 years...not good at all.

Very well known restaurant in Rock Hill, SC
Fast Food Worker (Former Employee), Rock Hill, SCSeptember 17, 2012
Pros: long breaks, long hours
Cons: management, not being able to spend time with family
my days at work was very long, but with all the right people you work with makes the time go by so much faster. all the co workers was very hard workers, i became friends with most an all of them,
the main thing i learned at Cook Out was responsibility, maturity. there was not just one thing to do at Cook Out, if you knew all the positions you was going – more... to work all of them in one night. The hardest part of the job was how busy it always was, in a very small work environment, it was awful to move around to get where you needed to be at that time.
the best part of the job was working with others, and also getting to communicate with everyone in the store – less

Cashier (Former Employee), High Point, NCAugust 4, 2012
Coming into work was always a joy. The pace that we worked was amazing. We worked very hard but i seem to enjoy this the most. Our managers were the most understanding and pushing bosses. They always made sure we were where we wanted to be to get the job done right.
