Pros: taught me a lot of skills from dealing with customers, working hard and nonstop, answering phones, taking orders, serving food, and many other skills.
Cons: management is a mess, rushes could be ridiculously stressful, and management was not very supportive during those times.
I worked here while I was a full time student in college. Thankfully I started out in the summer when I had a break in-between semesters, which helped me have time to get used to the menu. The managers were very good starting out, but sadly the one that helped hire me moved to a different branch about a month after I started. This made it more stressful – more... on our General Manager, which added stress for the workers during the busy hours. Our new manager eventually came and he sadly felt the need to prove he was in charge, making the cashiers do work that wasn't even required of us (things the busboys should have been doing instead, but they just socialized). This manager made sure that if you weren't needed at work that day, you should be sent home. I remember walking into work one day and he told me to go home right then and there (I was dressed to work and drove there on time that day). I kept wondering why didn't he call me. It seemed very unprofessional, and I lost money that day because "I wasn't needed" yet it was at 4p.m. when he sent me home, which everyone knows it will get busy by 5. This was my worst experience for work, it started out as a good job to earn cash, but by the end I was hardly making anything because of the management. My advice is know what you are getting into before saying yes to a job, and definitely express any concerns to the general manager when you can. – less
