Alright Job
Saute Cook (Former Employee), 46 Hampton VillageNovember 22, 2014
Pros: friendly enivorment
Cons: management team, was not payed for overtime
I would come in at 8am and perform morning prep which included me cooking 30 lbs of pasta and making culinary cuts to each vegetables. I honest enjoyed the job until the management team became rude an against each other as if they were in high school. Manger will become upset with one other that they would not set up the next manager come in no matter if it was AM, or P.M. They fell to see that it was affecting employees to where they would rush through they work not propriety make items. The GM will take away my overtime! and if call human resource, The GM will reduce your hours. it was just a mess

Culture change detrimental to employees at all levels
Area Manager (Former Employee), ColoradoOctober 28, 2014
As the company's goals have shifted from providing an experience that guests will love through really good food served by genuine nice people in a friendly comfortable place to being more concerned with stock value, their shotgun approach on marketing and their daily shifting of primary focus has definitely hurt their team.
This in turn has affected all aspects of the restaurants' understanding of standards and day-to-day procedures. Confusion is a key issue at Noodles & Company today.

Team member (Former Employee), Wheaton, ILOctober 15, 2014
I enjoyed working here at noodles and company, but I did not like how there was no room to move up in the company. I been working there for a month and I was still just a regular team memember and I had wanted to become a cashier. They were always hiring college students, and the one who was the dishwasher left, so they needed me to take his place. I can't complain though, because I was getting more than enough hours. The management was overall friendly, and the co-workers were very helpful. I did but heads with a few of them though, but that is to be expected, and i can understand because jobs are never perfect and they were probably just scared. I learned a lot and because they needed people, I learned how to make alot of yummy Asian and Ittalian dishes! the hardest part of the job was cleaning and dish washing. It wasn't difficult, just alot of work! Great job though and would almost give it a ten.

Interesting place to work...fun, fast paced
Assistant Manager (Former Employee), Lake Delton, WIOctober 6, 2014
Pros: benefits, advancement
Cons: extremely busy! can be really tiring
The experience was great, yet challenging. Extremely busy store. Great Benefits and advancement can happen if you show them you deserve to be promoted. All stores are willing to help other stores out. It seems to be a tight nit community. This job is not for someone who wants to just sit around and do nothing. A lot of different personalities....

Comfortable and friendly environment
Cashier/ Server (Current Employee), Rocklin, CASeptember 19, 2014
Pros: 75% on duty
Cons: no benefits, hours were cut
My shift was the opening shift, so every morning I opened the front of house. I made sure everything was stocked, cleaned, and ready for guest to arrive. Once they arrived, my duties were to take their orders and to serve them their food hot and ready. I've worked register before, but Noodles taught me how to be a friendly and reliable server to my guest.
The management and my co-workers are easy to get along with and make you feel comfortable while working.
The hardest part, but not impossible part, of the job was to sell limited time offers to guest before they order their food and to sell beer/wine in the mornings. I enjoyed most meeting new people and knowing the names of regulars who came in.

journey leader (Former Employee), Centennial, COSeptember 16, 2014
Pros: trying new foods
Cons: not enough workers to help out
I learned a lot from kitchen, to guest service to anything I can learn. I was willing to learn everything if I could. The hardest part of this job is working together to get the food out in a timely manner. The most enjoyable part of this job is that my coworkers are like family and it makes the job less stressful. The management was alright except they were not willing to listen to my concern and it was conflicting with my studying. Other than that, it was an enjoyable experience. I learned a lot.

Assistant General Manager (Current Employee), Louisville, COSeptember 11, 2014
Pros: on duty discounts, free food after 3 years of employment, good benefits for salaried managers
Cons: 50 hours work weeks but only paid for 40, ineffective upper management
Too many stores are being opened without enough people to run them. Training is fast-tracked and sloppy. Upper management does not address issues in workplace and does not support employees. Profit is put before the employee.

Crew Member/Cook/Shift Manager (Former Employee), Cincinnati, OHAugust 15, 2014
Pros: discounts on food
Cons: have no life outside of job
I loved the job managing crew members making sure food quality was up to par, providing wonderful customer service to guest. I got along well with all my co-workers it wasn't until as switch in management that I started disliking my job. I love cooking and my job brought the best of both making money and cooking food.
