Shift Leader (Former Employee) – Ashburn, VA – June 26, 2017
Management is great, you get free shift meals. This is not a career job unless you apply for management. Even if you start out as a cashier though and you are a hard worker there is chance for growth. Most companies promise that and don't mean it, this one does. They are constantly trying to train people for higher positions. Also the hours are pretty low unless you pick up shifts.
shift meals, fun environment, good management, company growth
This was my second job and I like it. My schedule is very flexible and the managers are cool. Its fun meeting people from other stores as well especially because we borrow things we need from each other all the time. The staff is literally like my family and there are regular customers you develop relationships with as well. Great vibe
Free lunch, flexible schedule, room for advancement
Long hours, weird shifts sometimes, policys are always changing

Ive been working at Zoes for almost a year now, and i love it ! The management is great and it just like we're a huge family. All the store get along great and we all help eachother out when needed. I got promoted 8 months after being there, and its just been an amazing journey.
Host (Current Employee) – Huntersville, NC – July 17, 2017
It started out great in February of 2017, until our management began to be mixed up and our store in result did not have a general manager for months. Now that we have one inventory is incorrect, our health rate is declining, the turnover rate is increasing, and the wrong food items and supplies are being ordered. The hardest part of the job would be the customers that give their complaints and begin to direct it at me when their problem is out of my control. I do enjoy working with my co-workers and my hours are fairly good but the management needs to be reviewed.
This job was very nice I enjoyed it in the beginning

The Zoe's I worked at was nothing like the others. This job was great half the time but the other half it blowed . My GM made our restaurant suck and if I were employed at any other Zoe's in the region I'd most likely still work there.
General Manager (Former Employee) – Cedar Park, TX – July 13, 2017
Fresh food and healthy options. It was nice working with a small team, but at times it was difficult to make a schedule since everyone was part time. Zoe's is rapidly expanding, but the company lacks training and development programs.
Productive and occasionally fast paced environment with friendly customers.
Hostess (Former Employee) – Auburn, AL – June 29, 2017
A typical day at work would be making sure that everything was in its proper order, and the place was clean. I also would refill the ice machine, sweeping, cleaning plates, and making sure that customers were happy with their food. I learned how to operate the cash register, quickly moving around the restaurant, handing out food. Management was amazing, and they always tried to make it easier for the customers and employees alike. Workplace culture was very relaxed and friendly, and everyone that I worked with was very patient with me, even if I had to ask several times about a certain thing. The hardest part of the job was learning all of the rules and where everything went in the store. The most enjoyable part of the job was the atmosphere.
Half off lunch, good schedule.
Sometimes got sent home early if it wasn't really busy.
Hostess/Server/Cashier (Former Employee) – Fort Collins, CO – June 25, 2017
Very fun and relaxing environment. Employees are very friendly and welcoming. Family friendly and a great place to just work while getting a bite to eat. The food is always delicious.. very pleased with how healthy all menu items are.
Nice summer job or nice job if you plan on staying

Working at Zoe's Is Very personal. You become what you love to do daily. I enjoy making everything fresh. From the dressings to the salads. Although you have your regular customers each and everyone is fun positive and different.
Cook (Current Employee) – Knoxville, TN – June 6, 2017
A great place to work if you are looking for something in a beginning stage of a culinary degree possibly. For me it was a great temporary job and not a long haul. When you think about applying you need to know it is still a good jobso your are dealing people who like it a certain way and they can be picky
Zoe's Kitchen was a wonderful job to hold while attending school, as they were very forgiving and accommodating with the hours I worked. The company has a modern and fun feeling culture, and the meals I earned each shift compensated for a slightly lower hourly wage than I wanted. I don't think I would be excited to move up within a store to general manager, but the actual corporate positions seem like they've got a lot of upward mobility.
had fun working here and opening restaurant every morning. i had a key to the door and the safe. it was the first job where i had the opportunity to be in charge and be a part of a strong team and buld my leadership skills
