Pros: One free meal per shift, weekly bonuses (if you get a high score)
Cons: Poor insurance/health plans for managers, no benefits for crew members, breaks are not mandatory and short, high turnover rate, poor management
Depending on the shift, work can either be extremely slow or hectic, thanks to the area. You either spend two hours prepping, or two-and-a-half to three hours closing, and deal with customers and your crew for the five-to-six hour shift you have.
Unfortunately, there is an extreme turn over rate within the particular store I work with. In the almost two years I've been there, I am the only remaining crew member from my "original" team. Many people don't take the job seriously, and while I very much enjoy working with my team members, what should take an hour takes three due to laziness or distractions.
Management is suffering. The stores do not half the amount of managers they need, and while it is trying to be fixed, three months later, nothing has changed. The hardest part about this job is simply the stress of dealing with customers and the crew; but people are people, and personalities are different. It comes with the territory.
The most enjoyable part of the job? Working with a good crew can make the hours fly by.
