Very disappointed in this job
Server (Former Employee), Lewis Center, OHNovember 23, 2014
The owner has no idea how to run a business.Th staff was basically incompetent, the management didn't value its customers and favoritism ran rampant throughout the establishment.

not much of a fun job
Shift Leader (Former Employee), Albany, NYNovember 12, 2014
Management don't seem to know whats going on. No one seems to want to pay attention to food safety weather it being clean food cabinets or just making sure new product isn't being poured on top of the old.

Productive and interactive
Assistant Manager (Current Employee), San Diego, CAOctober 20, 2014
First, I look over the previous day's paperwork to ensure its completion and read over any notes left by other managers. I then proceed to start the opening paperwork and counts of the safe and the inventory. Once done, I instruct the employees on what to prepare first (depends on which product is more dire) and start to set up the restaurant. I work – more... alongside the crew, managing and working together, to prepare the meal and serve the customers. The hardest part of the job is when I have to sit down with the staff to notify them of their disciplinary action when something was done incorrectly. the most enjoyable part of the job when the whole store is in unity and we are enjoying one another as well as stay on task. – less

Awful Management
Shift Leader (Former Employee), Loveland, COOctober 5, 2014
Pros: free food, i loved my customers
Cons: no breaks, horrible management
Typical day at work would be opening the store and getting ready for the day. Balancing all the drawers, and safe, making sure the money was right

I learned great management skills and time management skills

The management was not very good. The GM neglected his employees, the owners also neglected their store

My co-workers became like family to – more... me

The hardest part was when my (older) employees had problems listening to me because I was younger

The most enjoyable was when my regular customers would come in and be amazed I could remember their order and name. Also working with great employees – less

An Awful Place To Work With Shad People
Cashier and front end service (Former Employee), Ramsey, NJSeptember 7, 2014
Pros: 75% off food
Cons: unprofessional sadistic bosses
A day at work would could be a grueling 11 hour day with only a 30 minute break.
Management was unprofessional, sadistic, short tempered, unsympathetic or empathetic to anything and everything employee related, and unfair.
Coworkers struggled to survive harsh treatment from management in a dog eat dog style.
There was nothing enjoyable about the job.

Entry Level Job with High Turnover
Cashier/GSE (Former Employee), San Clemente, CAAugust 8, 2014
The typical day consisted of cleaning, customer service, taking food orders, stocking the store, and delivering meals to guests.
During my time at this job, I learned the basics of a "front of house" fast food job. Though the management was lacking in areas, I was able to ask my co-workers for help while I was still learning.
This location seems to – more... need more time to mature and the shift leaders need more time to understand how to run it efficiently.
The hardest part of the job was its inconsistency with scheduling on a weekly basis.
Though my time there was not the longest, what I did enjoy was talking to the guests and learning more about different work environments. – less

Stressful workplace with terrible management
Cook (Former Employee), Glendale, AZJune 22, 2014
Pros: n/a
Cons: stressful, terrible management, hot kitchen, etc.
After clocking in, I would begin preparing food for customers that would be coming into the restaurant that night. Also responsible for cooking food and doing dishes/cleaning. Hardest part of the job was dealing with management and easiest was working with my friends in the kitchen.

Very Casual Fun Workplace
Line Cook/Prep Cook (Current Employee), Arlington Heights, ILJune 19, 2014
Pros: flexible with hours
Cons: n/a
SamashBurger is a very fast pace moving casual restaurant, Where our goal is to be Everyones Favorite burger spot. Management staff and Co-workers are very easy to get along with and will help you throughout the way. to teach you as much as they can, its a learning experience because everyone has different experience levels, so you get the chance to – more... learn from everybody. On a typical day you will have prep to do in the morning, you will clean the store in down time (dishes, ect). You will work with fellew co-worker(s) depending on time and day. what i have learned is to be the best at what i do in the kitchen no matter what and to be the be a team platyer and to teach others what i have learned so that they can do it the right way, I was taught how to do Paperwork for management even though I'm only a cook. so that i can have the chance to move up. The most enjoyable/hardest part about the job is when you get hit in the rushes of customers piling into the restaurant and its just non-stop moving for long periods of time, thats when the adrenline kicks in. – less

Priductive Fast Paced Enviornment
GSE (Former Employee), Irving, TXJune 13, 2014
Pros: half off food
Working for Smashburger was very rewarding. I enjoyed working with everyone of my fellow co-workers. The managers didn't treat you any different as in they made you feel like what you had to say was important as well.

Typical Things At Work
Cook (Former Employee), ILJune 1, 2014
Come into work hope the last shift did there job. Get to work on what wasn't done and what has to be done. Also cook at the sametime. What I learned is a lot of fast food places lose alot of workers due to poor management. The hardest thing was the commute back and forth to work. And being disciplined for being 5-10 mins late. And there's people living – more... around the corner calling off with made up reasons. The most enjoyable part was when we had a big rush and we get the customers in and out with team work. – less

Good food, disappointing workplace.
Part-Time Cook (Former Employee), Phoenix, AZMay 24, 2014
Pros: half-priced food, hour breaks.
Cons: management, co-workers.
A typical day was exactly how it sounds, typical. Nothing really eventful happened and there were no exciting bits. I learned a little more discipline, more cleaning skills, and I worked with different food than I did at my previous workplace. Management was subpar, but not terrible, it seems like places with younger managers aren't run as well as older, – more... experienced managers. My co-workers were the same as the managers, young and inexperienced, so working with them was a little difficult when it came to health code. The hardest part of the job was honestly the cleaning, it was a small kitchen, but there were lots of little crevices and nooks that were difficult to access. The most enjoyable part of the job came about during the rush, when the adrenaline was going and perfect food was being sent out. Satisfying the customers every time made the job worth it. – less

Ok place to work
Cashier/Food Server (Former Employee), Lafayette, COMay 13, 2014
Pros: extra $ for good secret shoppers surveys
Cons: always short staffed!!
Working for Smash was fun. Co-workers made time go by faster. Taking customers orders and serving the food was a typical day at work. Cleaning and organizing everything as well. Management how ever was always changing very difficult. We worked in the smallest building and it was hard to get around. Had workers mostly cashiers always quitting so we were – more... mostly short staff which made it stressful. – less
