fast pace job with emphasis on costumer service
Team Member (Former Employee), San Diego, CAMay 31, 2014
Pros: good experience
Cons: uncomfortable workplace
I would usually work early mornings and take peoples orders. I would help bag up food and serve it to the customers. I learned a lot about how fast food service works and a lot about customer service. The management was alright but did not manage how you would expect of someone in that position. I had a few nice co-workers but for the most part they – more... were very rude to me because i was the youngest there. The hardest part was getting used to the rush of multitasking. After I got up to speed it was easy sailing from then. Most enjoyable part was getting the discounted food for lunches. – less

There Are Worse Fast Food Jobs
Shift Leader (Former Employee), St. Louis, MOApril 9, 2014
Pros: positive culture, yummy food
Cons: schedule, pay, room for advancement
I was an overnight shift leader, and there is little to no room for advancement when you are overnights. It was a fun place to work, but the pay was naturally pretty bad, and the overnight hours take their toll on you.

Good enviornment and friendly staff members.
Assistant Manager (Current Employee), Apple Valley, CAMarch 15, 2014
Pros: free lucnhes for the most part.
Cons: only got 30min lunch breaks
A typical work day would consist of about an hour to two hours of paper work and then running the floor for the rest of the day. I felt like I was a great manger and all co-workers liked working with me. I really didn't feel like there were any parts of my job that were hard so if I had to choose something I think that it would be that I didn't get – more... recognition for a lot of the work I did. I still very much enjoy my job but just looking for a better opportunity to move up in life. – less

This company Sucks !
manager (Former Employee), 1572November 26, 2013
Cons: work for liars
I was a manager here for 4 years. i did everything the way they wanted it. All was fine, till the numbers for the overall company started to decline. Our area coach then told us to meet the numbers no matter what. I went into the hospital, was out of my store for a week, and food cost went to hell. They tried to tell me they were short over 7000 dollars – more... of food. Funny i had a audit 3 weeks prior, HOW in the hell do you loose that much in 7 days. They fired me, oh yea- the a/c was fired the same week funny conincidence – less

Fun and fast paced work
Shift Leader (Former Employee), Florissant, MOOctober 31, 2012
Pros: free lunches
Cons: no benifits and an immature work crew
I was the opening manager for this company. My day consisted of prepping the store for the days sales, handling bank deposits, train and discipling employees, and ensuring all food safety rules were followed. The management here was very good. The hardest part of the job was getting through the lunch rush.
