shameful,unprofessional
Cashier (Former Employee), Orange, TXAugust 12, 2014
Pros: 50% off one meal per one work shift, free drinks(soft) while on shift
Cons: no breaks at all, can't call in never anyone to cover for you even if. sick with a doc note.
Unprofessional management sending their significant others home while on the clock to go buy them lunch. Employees who are obviously under the influence not being drug tested or spoken to, at least told they reak of marijuana,otherwise the behavior would have stopped. Honestly wouldn't eat there voluntarily. cleanliness is also an issue throughout. – more... dead bugs on the floor and flying around teas,the bar bathrooms etc. mold, and grime throughout the kitchen,dish pit etc.. – less

Family Restaurant?
Cashier (Former Employee), Grapevine, TXMay 5, 2014
Pros: great first job, learn the truth about work.
Cons: management
As a cashier for Fuzzy's Taco Shop my day to day resposibilities were to practically take the customers orders, clean, clean, and clean. This was my first job so I learned the basics on a positive customer service experience. I had 2 managers that I grew to respect not only as boss' but as human beings. Keep in mind I had a total of 4 managers at that – more... time. My favorite was a manager who was told he was going to become a supervisor, but was kept waiting for more than a year. But he worked his behind off to get there, even went above his job description. But they brought in a supervisor and ignored the manager they promised the position in. This supervisor was completely inappropriate and crossed the professional line plenty of times. He, the new supervisor, not only accused a manager of being intimate with an employee, but accused said employee of "looking like a crack addict". Most of my co-workers were great and I still hang out with 2 of them once in a while. The hardest part of this job was advancing. I can honestly say I was too smart for my job title, they didn't take advantage of my talents. They also didn't take into consideration their employees flexibility options that they promised. If we needed a day off in specific, we were to place a post it with the day needed off, on the managers desk. I placed the day I needed off on my supervisors desk and explained I had my best friends wedding (I was the best man) to attend. My supervisor said that was fine and that I could have that day off. When I came to work the day before the wedding I saw the new schedule and my supervisor put me to work on that day and decided to take that day off himself. I called my co-worker for her to fill in for me and she agreed, I then called my manager to let him know what was going on and he said that was fine. The day of the wedding my supervisor called me asking why I wasn't coming in, I explained and he demanded I leave the wedding immediately and get to work or I would be fired. I politely replied to his threat with, "Ok, well thank you so much for this opportunity, now if you would excuse me, I have a wedding to attend. Thank you and have a great day." The most enjoyable part was honestly having that experience and knowing what you can and cannot do. Though that restaurant was not for me, my former co-workers explained how much it has changed. I can honestly say the restaurant is amazing when you are the customer, and a great first job. – less

FUN ATMOSPHERE AND WORK CREW
Shift Leader (Former Employee), Weatherford, TXApril 25, 2014
Pros: enjoyable staff and lots of fun customers
Cons: hours always changed
I enjoyed working everyday, we stayed very busy and on our feet the entire shift and always had something to be doing. The management was easy-going but knew when to be serious and when to act goofy. The hardest part was everyone following the schedule, I usually ended up staying later than my shift every night due to employees leaving early or calling – more... in which I benefited from and didn't mind at all, just hard not having work oriented and driven empoyees as team members. I enjoyed working the front and handling all things with the customers and making everyone see how much I enjoyed my job and making sure everyone was happy and left with a positive attitude about our service. I really learned responsibility and care for the work place and management, also flexibility with my team members. – less

Fast paced and adrenaline pumping fun enviroment
Manager (Former Employee), Gainesville, TXOctober 30, 2013
Pros: free food, tips, family enviroment
Cons: short breaks, long hours, intense paced work for long periods of time.
Each day I walked into work I did not know what to expect. I loved that aspect about my job. Things were constantly changing and never stayed the same. It kept me on my toes, made me learn how to deal with sudden changes, taught me how to deal with stressful situations and how to handle those things in a professional manner. As a manager I learned that – more... I had to deal with each employee differently. Just as I had to deal with each situation in the store differently. The hardest part of my job was calming an angry customer. I have always hated confrontation but as it being a part of my job it took me out of my comfort zone. It made me learn as I go and I turly enjoyed that.
The best or easiest part of my job was overseeing the employees and making it a fun experience for them everyday. They then took that positive energy and showed it towards the customers. It was a trickle effect and the customers immediately saw the difference in the stores vibe. – less

Shift Leader/Cashier (Former Employee), Frisco, TXSeptember 3, 2013
Pros: managment is great. they took care of me so i took care of them, free food, i got to be myself
Cons: not getting many breaks during an 11 hour shift
My job at Fuzzy's was one like any other. I loved to go to work because I knew what i was doing and I could handle just about everything. I would train new people after I interviewed them, make sure everything at the register was going okay as well as the bar area. The worst part of my job was that I was working 50 hour weeks (I love having alot of – more... hours, but it was EVERY week EVERY day.) – less

Conveniant location with college-age employees.
Cashier (Former Employee), St. LouisAugust 31, 2013
Pros: laid-back "college-age" atmosphere.
Cons: no scheduled breaks, difficult wages, low employee productivity.
Although this is the PERFECT place for a college hang out or to get together to watch a game, I wouldn't consider it the perfect place to work. Most of the time I was the only sober or punctual employee working in the front of the restaurant. My position had standard cashier duties that included taking food orders on a P.O.S. system and handling different – more... forms of payment and discounts. I was also responsible for keeping all areas of the restaurant clean, with the exception of the kitchen and dish washing area. The most enjoyable part of the job was the laid-back atmosphere, but unfortunately that caused some issues with the appearance and performance of the college-age employees. – less

Loyal customers, great staff, and exciting environment to work in
Shift Manager (Former Employee), Oklahoma City, OKApril 3, 2013
Pros: employee discount, good tips
Cons: no breaks, long nights
Started as a cashier when the restaurant opened and became a shift manager within the next couple months. Management was great and the owners were probably the best bosses I'll ever work for.

There was really no "typical" day at work- there was always a lunch and dinner rush, but weekends were typically busier throughout the entire day. Constant interaction – more... with customers, both loyal fans who eat there religiously to newbies that were freaked out by some of the food combinations (crawfish tacos, feta cheese on everything).

Working in the heart of downtown OKC was the most enjoyable part of the job. Meeting new people (and sometimes famous people) was exciting and almost every weekend promised good tips. – less

Productive and Laidback work environment.
Assistant Manager (Current Employee), Roanoke, TexasOctober 25, 2012
Pros: free food as management, half priced as employee. flexible schedule. great hours, great pay.
Cons: high management and employee turnover rate
About 20 to 25 minutes of paper work and other administrative duties start off the day at 6 a.m. and then I proceed to open the rest of the restaurant with a cashier and a cook. Use a Point Of Sale system to ring in customer's orders and send them to the kitchen to be cooked. I learned how to effectively manage subordinates, effectively communicate – more... with Upper Level Management and others at the same level of management as myself. The hardest part of this job was adapting to the many different managers and employees that worked with me. The most enjoyable part of this job is communicating with people, having fun and doing work with employees, and learning more about how to manage people with real world experience. – less

Great place to gain experience
Assistant Manager (Former Employee), Cedar Park, TXSeptember 12, 2012
Pros: great customer interaction
Cons: having to cover shifts that were not my own in the same day.
A typical day working for Fuzzy's would be checking over the entire restaurant for anything that may need to be stocked or re ordered before the breakfast, lunch, or dinner shifts. Providing excellent customer service. Getting to know each customer as they dine in. Going over what is to be expected of myself and the team before a rush for each meal – more... time.
I learned that if I'm not pushing myself to be the best I can be then I am not performing at my peak level.
The hardest part of the job would have to be the stress that was put on me by my counter parts on the management team. Having to constantly cover shifts that were not my own. I am happy that I left the company with the title Team Player.
The best part of working here was being able to teach employees and be taught by my bosses to learn the business better. – less

Customer oriented work place with fast paced atmosphere
Assistant Manager (Current Employee), Southlake, TXAugust 7, 2012
Pros: communication between co-workers, discounted food
Cons: no benefits
In my years with the the Fuzzy's Taco Shop organization, I have found respectful management through hardwork and dedication. While working my way through college, management has worked well with me to find shifts after or before my classes. The atmosphere is one that is faced paced and allows for little mistakes. My co-workers come from different backgrounds – more... and some from different nationalities, but I have learned that thorough communication and leading by example are the best way to help them as well as myself succeed.

There is no real hard parts about this job. I have found that once you establish a respectful working relationship with all of your co-workers that teamwork becomes second nature. Management as well has also been available if there were to be any other pressing matters.

I would say that I take joy in seeing repeat customers come in so often that we learn their name and they learn ours. This has also let to greater sales numbers due to the positive word of mouth marketing that these repeat customers provide throughout the community. – less
