I worked for Krystal on a part-time basis. As in most jobs, some managers were excellent and some sub-par. Though repetitive, the job was not difficult as long as you were organized. Hours varied but managers were usually able to provide plenty of hours because they trusted my work ethic. Expectations from management were high but not unobtainable. Work was fast paced but there were down times when you were able to talk with co-workers and de-stress.One of the only downsides was that breaks were unpaid so you were docked for that time. As a result, few employees took breaks. Overall, very good job and company.
Pros
Free food, flexible hours, good part time job
Cons
Unpaid breaks, high pressure

Krystal has fallen on bad times and the current leadership is capitalizing on squeezing out profits rather than rebuilding the great brand Krystal once was. Do not believe the written values.
Cons
no resourses available or opportunity to grow.

Being that this was my first job, I still believe it was a good base when I first started. As a crew member, a typical day included food preparation and handling, customer interaction, and sometimes management responsibilities. Working in fast food teaches you organization and time management, especially since it is a fast moving workplace. The most enjoyable part of my job was being able to help my manager with their daily responsibilities, such as inventory, money handling, and scheduling.

Working at Krystal was actually a fun experience. The shift managers made it fun. Our regular customers also made the day good as well. Always busy with something to do.

This was one of the WORST jobs I have ever had in my life. This place was full of drama and gossiping back stabbing women. The General Manager and the retired District manager were petty, showed favoritism and were very unprofessional. They ALWAYS had something negative to say about any and everyone. The place was disgusting and had roaches everywhere and it was and still is filthy, ran down and OLD!!
Pros
None
Cons
Everything!!

This is a horrible place to work at. The GM is rude, and talk to you any kind of way. He treat us like slaves and runs this store like a jail/ boot camp. He don't like for us to have a simple conversations, you don't get breaks unless we are slow and it's only minors. We don't get days off we request but he is off every weekend. We could never keep team members because of the way he treat them.
Pros
Alot of hours
Cons
No breaks, long work shifts, rude/poor management

Krystals is a good beginner job, they show you the process in a steady pace, and take their time helping you. The people around you shouldn't affect you because their are nice people around.

It's fast food, some people will be great and others will be rude and cuss you, maybe even throw food, drinks or money at you or try to fight you. Just know what you're getting yourself into and choose which location you want to work at carefully. Put into consideration the community around that location. And what you're willing to deal with.

Working from home is a great way to keep the balance of corporate world and home world. Krystal's provides you with the opportunity to achieve both of these goals. The hardest part of the job is building relationships with the corporate staff since you work remotely, while it is the most rewarding part of the job since you aren't tied to a desk. I would recommend working at Krystal's all day long. Good company.

The general manager hated her job but been there for over 20 years, still showed no sign of compassion for the customer or employees. The restaurant is family oriented and they are the only ones who really get promoted .. I tried to leave the correct way and end up getting begged to stay just to not come back a week after because of the mistreatment and under paid checks..
