Line Cook/Journey Leader (Former Employee) – Greenwood Village, CO – October 26, 2017
It was a fun, laid back, sometimes fast paced environment. Always busy but never too busy. It was actually a really fun and easy job but the pay was extremely low and the chances for raises were very limited.
Asistant Manager (Former Employee) – State College, PA – October 22, 2017
Helping the crew as a line cook and taking orders came naturally, took some time to get used to serving tables but caught on pretty quickly. Balancing all of the above kept me working at a fast pace and made time go pretty quickly.
Cook (Current Employee) – Baltimore, MD – October 22, 2017
Typical day at work is a fast work day Ive learned how to make new things ( food wise ) Management is ok but can be better There really isnt a hard part about the job Most enjoyable part is that everybody gets along and work together to get the job done.
Fast paced work environment with a lot on your plate at once.
Ambassador (Former Employee) – Rockford, IL – October 22, 2017
Often times at this job I would be the only one moving at all as the other workers didn't really tend to do their jobs right. There were very few workers who would put in real work there and it left a lot on the minorities plate to deal with. I would be bouncing between dishes, dining, kitchen and customer service all so fast my legs would be hurting at the end of the day.
Shift Manager (Former Employee) – Omaha, NE – October 21, 2017
As far as jobs go its not a bad one, You can learn how to make a lot of different noodles from a lot of different food cultures. The atmosphere is good and the people are as good as restaurant people can be.
Team Member (Former Employee) – Buffalo Grove, IL – October 21, 2017
Great first job, I honesty lost the job because of my own doing, but in general had a lot of fun working there, pay could of been better, but as a first job it is perfect. fun, you have your ups and downs working through out the day. Management wasn't rude at all, they were extremely nice though it wasn't run very well at all.
Productive place of work, no room for advancements
Manager (Former Employee) – Indianapolis, IN – October 18, 2017
I would come in and begin to open the store. It was normal for the General Manager to be late, at least 4 people would call off a day. I was promoted to manager with a $2.00 pay raise but no amount of money was worth the b******* I had to deal with daily. I enjoyed taking home rice krispies and my meal. Even when I worked open to close I did not get a free meal. If non shift manager took an extra shift, they would receive a free meal. I think that was the only good thing. The work environment was relaxed but a lot of people took advantage of that and did not do at least half of the work that they were assigned to do.
No breaks, poor pay, picking up everyone elses slack, no room for career growth, favoritism
ASSISTANT GENERAL MANAGER (Former Employee) – Bloomington, IN – October 18, 2017
Noodles & Company was excellent to me. They provide great training and ample room (and encouragement!) for personal growth within the company. They're very good with providing constructive feedback. Environment is positive and productive. A typical day includes lots of cleaning, ensuring food safety and stock levels, prep, and making sure everyone is happy. Management varies from store to store, but they do try to be as understanding as possible, and that's appreciated. The hardest part of the job was providing motivation to those who didn't care for working. The most enjoyable part was having a great team who did their best and helped each other out in order to accomplish the store's goals. Good place to work if you like to stay busy.
Restaurant Associate (Former Employee) – Cypress, CA – October 18, 2017
Broken promises. I still haven't received one of my checks & they bs'd me into going thru with their dumb process & it was NO HELP AT ALL. The boss would schedule me less than 7 hours a week, if that. & my checks would look small forcing me to leave on my own. Disorganized & fake management
Very enjoyable place to work. Not only were my coworkers great but the customers were as well. My boss was strict when she had to be but she didn't need to be very often because we all knew what needed to be done and we did it. We were a team.
