Pros: free food, friendly coworkers, generous break system, decent pay
Cons: upward progress next to impossible, no benefits without elusive full-time, stagnant fulltime staff, almost impossible to have second job, constantly changing schedule (full 12 hour changes)
Been working here for a few years, on-call status...do everything I can to set myself apart, but performance reviews seem to be thrown in the trash. Full timers get first pick on shifts regardless of skills/performance, and I never know how many hours I'll get. Constantly have to work past scheduled hours due to incompetent scheduling (having 1 person – more... working on a saturday has happened...)
Management is a mixed bag, but all seem to have their hands tied by corporate, even in common sense matters.
Overly discipline heavy rulebook, put on final notice after missing 3 days in 4 months, 2 of which were medical emergencies with documentation
Payrate is good, but Ive had better...the rate doesnt mean much when you dont know if you'll have 40 hours or 20 in a week. Also you are heavily discouraged from having a second job while on call, and the always changing schedules make it next to impossible anyway. Because of this I am forced to be on foodstamps.
All in all, work here if you gotta, but keep looking, cause you aren't going to move up at all. – less
