Crew Member (Former Employee) - Anaheim, CA - August 20, 2019
A very chill job with a bunch of other college students. Very easy to learn and pick up tasks. A lot of free time (maybe boring for some), rushes are mostly rare that happens when trains come in or there's an event nearby. Very flexible scheduling. The manager is nice and comes in as a regular worker at times, but doesn't fix addressed issues with equipment and other store-related problems. No raises, upgrade to higher positions is by the cents.
Free food, flexible schedules
No raises, some crazy customers in locations sometimes
I was actually a GM loved my job loved the people I employed however the owners where a bit much to deal with at times but the actual day to day work was easy and fun. Short staffed a lot in the NASHVILLE area though!
An average day as a crew member consisted of dealing with a line that had no end at the register, getting a face covered in butter or sweating next to an oven always full of pretzels. Well at least at the busy stores. It was an amazing first job experience and the relationships with the people I got to work with were irreplaceable. But firstly you’re going to love and hate the ISTA. This consisted of your average sale and the amount of customers you attended at the register. The higher the ISTA the more hours you got BUT if you ever needed a needed a cover or someone to cover your shift it was only someone who had a higher ISTA so in turn you were punished for working too hard, or it seemed like that to me. I remember charging people everything separately to lower my ISTA. The management was decent, the actual manager didn’t do much, it was more of the supervisor and the shift leaders that were in charge of the store. Being an ex shift leader and trainee trainer for upcoming stores I learned that it really was your job to male sure everything ran smoothly and that the goal was met. Along with being in charge of the team as shift leader you had to count money at the end of the night which was the most relaxing part of the job. By far the most enjoyable part was getting to know other manager from other stores and getting those discounts along with the relationships with you coworkers.
Cashier/Customer Service (Former Employee) - Clarksville, TN - August 12, 2019
This is a retail fast food job. Expect a fast paced environment during holidays and summer, slow traffic during school times. Management works with their employees and is very flexible with requested time off
Management treat you like animals. Too much drama caused from upper management. Will use you in then throw you away one they find someone else. Love to hire people outside then promote within. Don't waste your time, it's ok as a crew but when you are mangment they use and abuse you.

This job was clearly a start for teens, the pay was no where near rational to the amount of stress endured while working. Employees weren’t really the friendliest, we did however get to eat free food on our break.
Product Manager/Distributer (Former Employee) - Portage, MI - August 9, 2019
This was my first job, so naturally they had me on the easy stuff.filling drinks and doing the samples and buttering the pretzels. It was fast pace and kinda boring. They tried to train me on the cash register but I was too slow on the first day so they decided i was better at other things.
Free pretzels and good collegues
Poor management, no room for learning. No patience
Very busy but that's to be expected at then galleria.

Inflexible hours and not very accommodating. Mostly teenagers working and dedicated assistant managers that made working there enjoyable. I learned how to deal with a very busy and hectic atmosphere on weekends especially.
