A typical day at a Qdoba, that is "Busy", will result in you earning every dollar you get. Their labor allowances are stupidly low. You feel like you are understaffed most shifts. But, with that said, at my Qdoba, we are across the street from a university, so we have a high turn over of students who only want drinking money. The employees are great workers, the company has great benefits and compensation. I have learned almost everything I know about the food industry at this store and don't regret a bit of it!
Management depends on who it is.... truly.
The hardest part of the job is leaving for the day. There is always something else you could help with before leaving. And, the HARDEST part, bringing myself to look for other work! I have developed deep relationships with many of my co-workers because of the high pace stress filled environment.
Most enjoyable part of the job is for sure the repeat customers who come in 3-5 times a week. Along with that, I do have to say I love most everyone I work with. I consider some of them almost family at this point.
Great company, great benefits, advancement options, compensation, but they really need to examine their labor matrix(s). Labor is why people leave... it is A LOT of work.
At my location all team members eat free if they work, and 50% off otherwise. Managers eat free 100% of the time!
Very demanding labor matrix, almost unrealistic for the amount of things to be done
