Shift Manager (Former Employee) – Westminster, CO boulder, Co – August 17, 2017
It's a good company to work for with great opportunity to grow. I was only there for three months before being offered a managers position and six months before discussing the possibility of moving up even further within the company.
Being a shift manager at a restaurant chain has been a real learning experience. Days are tough a lot of the time, but you always feel like a leader. Wish the higher management was more present in time when we needed.

nice understanding people who are cooperative and work well as a team. good structure and practices. runs like a well oiled machine. great corporate practices and admirable commitment to food quality and service.
I still love Noodles & Company till this day. It was my first job in high school. I started off in the dish room and quickly moved up to become a sauté' cook. It was a great learning experience and I still love there food.
Customer Service & Cook (Current Employee) – Des Moines, IA – August 10, 2017
I was initially disappointed with the lack of training program and consistency in specs but was able to advance in learning all positions. I found some of the management to be inexperienced and naïve at how to operate but was always supported by my general manager. However seeing the downfall of getting into management at this kind of restaurant, when he left I decided that I needed to make a change. Wanting to get back into working a Monday - Friday 9-5 so to speak with pay that meets my skills and dedication. Taking this job having several years off from employment, I found this job to be the perfect transition. I learned that I do love to cook and would still be open to possibly taking a cook position at a more challenging company though. I enjoyed my co-workers and the team atmosphere.

ASSISNTAT GENERAL MANAGER (Current Employee) – Lakewood, CO – August 9, 2017
Working here is stressful af and they don't pay anyone enough for the amount of work they have to do. I make sure that all of the people I hire are great, so we have really strong culture, but its still hella stressful and not even worth it.
Cook/sauté (Former Employee) – Milwaukee, WI – August 6, 2017
Noodles and company has been a fantastic work environment when time permits. Everyone I worked with can be fun and easy going but also intense and serious at the right time. This noodles was the second busiest store in the country at the time.
Shift Manager (Former Employee) – Columbia, MO – August 6, 2017
A typical day at work consisted of extremely high volume coming out the kitchen with 6 minute ticket times. I learned many different skills including: Business Intelligence, P&L Chart, Scheduling, Inventory and Cost Management and how to create a litany of different dishes. Management is excellent. Culture of family amongst the team is strong. The hardest part of the job is keeping up with orders with a minimal staff. The most enjoyable part of the job was making excellent food for better people.

The first thing that you need to realise about this job is that it is very fast paced and pretty much always understaffed. The sales do not allow for more employees on the clock. That being said when you make it through the rush it is a rewarding job, where you serve quality food and the guests love the service you provide. Very loyal customers!
