Cashier/Drive Thru and Cook (Former Employee) – Decatur, GA – July 16, 2018
A typical work day for me would be clocking in, stocking up, count my draw for cashier/drive thru or prep to cook. I do my duties and help customers, then at the end of the day I restock and clean my designated area and help other if needed. I learned how to be a cashier/drive thru, cook and clean. I increased my work knowledge everday just by doing my daily duties. Management was good and they helped when they could. For the most part the culture was good and encouraging.
Guest Specialist (Former Employee) – Eastman, GA – July 15, 2018
I didn’t like working at the captain Ds in Eastman Ga. due to the fact that it had such pour management and drugs all around the work place. I was promised so much but in return I never got much of anything. I worked incredibly long hours and hard shift with such little pay and terrible co workers. I was used and mistreated to the fullest. I myself know i have a kind heart and will do anything for anyone so that’s why they used me so much. I kept and unimaginably clean work station while I worked regardless of how nasty others left theirs.
Work was good. I enjoyed my stay. My wage was what i least expected it to be. I wanted more
Cook (Current Employee) – Byram, MS – July 11, 2018
I want to try something new. I would like a higher pay. I left the last job for sports. Now, I have some responsibilities to take care of. I need a job immediately. I want to be a photographer and a film director. I cant get the things i need without some earnings to work for. I have to work for what i need in order to be successful.
Cook/Prep (Former Employee) – Augusta, GA – July 9, 2018
while working at captain ds I learned about preparation. sometimes in life to have certain things they must be prepared before hand. I learned about team work and having a better attitude towards fellow workers and customers .
The managers were the best, business was always slow.
Cashier (Former Employee) – Ruston, LA – July 7, 2018
Working at Captain d’s was good at first until business started slowing down dramatically, which resulted in hours shortage. It’s a good job for teens that doesn’t have much responsibility, but it’s a no go for an adult that has bills to pay.
Food Prep/Cook/Dishwasher (Former Employee) – Mount Sterling, KY – July 2, 2018
not a bad place to work if your a teenager. they are always hiring. teenagers run the place after school hours. it is not a hard place to work. the most enjoyable part of working there was clocking out.
Crew Member (Former Employee) – Lexington, SC – June 30, 2018
I am not sure if this is how all the restaurants are run this way but the one I was at was all about favoritism. If the manager did not like you, you were not treated the same as those he did like. Many times I was left by myself in the back to cook all the food, wash all the dishes and try to keep the orders moving while the managers did nothing.
This was not all management just a few. there were some good managers that I worked for and they treated everyone fairly and it was good.
General Manager (Former Employee) – Murfreesboro, TN – June 29, 2018
I meet new people everyday and learned a lot about hospitality. When I first started management cared about there people but in the end they had people who did not care. Staffing was the hardest part of the job.
Cashier (Former Employee) – Ruston, LA – June 29, 2018
Most of my days at work were comfortable for me I made a good bond with all of the employees and the customers. What I learned from my days working there is to stay focused and pay attention to most of the things I would do on the cashier register and I also got a chance to work on my listening skills.
Manager Assistant (Current Employee) – Muscle Shoals, AL – June 29, 2018
Enjoy working there. Has flexible woek hours an great GM. Qould like to advance but I feel like the company heaitatea to much on advancement. When I started with the company, they knew what I was looking for but nevwe tried to peomote or train dor promotion.
It was a good work environment. Energetic workers and good opportunities to grow. I learned how to manage a fast paced food environment. The hardest part of the job is being careful not to burn yourself.
I did not like working at Captain D's at all. I would not recommend it, or even go eat there again. The manager was not the best, and he was rude. He was also a hypocrite, and made the restaurant go down. I am glad when I left.
