Cashier/Customer Service (Current Employee) – Bloomington, IN – February 21, 2019
I enjoyed my time at Noodles and Company more than any other job I ever had. The management was kind and made the job experience so much more enjoyable and allowed employees to feel comfortable asking questions.
Noodles & Company Crew Member (Current Employee) – Fort Collins, CO – February 18, 2019
At first it was a nice place to work, then things changed as far as dress code and other small things. Management was unsupportive and did not back up thier employees during difficult situations. I did not get compensated when minimum wage increased.
Chef (Former Employee) – Fairfax, VA – February 18, 2019
A typical day of work would be either prepping for the day then working as a cook or working as a cook and cleaning as a closer. I learned about food safety and how to work with a full team. The hardest part of the job was maintaining standards during rushes because there was a goal time to have food prepared.
Cashier (Former Employee) – Fayetteville, NC – February 17, 2019
Several managers there were inconsistent with scheduling. When I tried to advance I was denied. If one of the managers had a personal problem with you, your hours would be cut regardless of how good of a worker you are and they barely give hours.

Cashier (Former Employee) – Des Peres, MO – February 10, 2019
No matter how busy or slow the store was, everyone had to be doing something. If the store was slow, the employees had to clean or keep themselves busy doing something for the store. When it was busy the employees worked together as a team to get everything done at a decent time.
Shift Manager (Former Employee) – Omaha, NE – February 10, 2019
I worked for this company for nearly three years. I watched many coworkers come and go. In the beginning, it's a fun and exciting place to work. But, give it some time, this place will drag you to the pits of he!! and back.
Assistant General Manager (Former Employee) – Vancouver, WA – February 6, 2019
A typical day at Noodles and Company would be food prep, cash handling, inventory management, guest interactions.
the culture was very open, I felt comfortable and I wanted to go to work everyday.
I learned tons working my way up from team member to the Assistant general manager of my original location. I learned how difficult it can be to run a team of 29, writing schedules that work for everyone as well we trying to be on the same page with all of the different and unique minds that I had the opportunity of working with. Also the daily functioning of a restaurant isnt for the weak of heart, it take blood sweat and tears, and an unwavering commitment to the longevity of the business.
The hardest part of the job was learning to deal with team members who weren't cut out to work for us, wither it be from a scheduling issues or personal, having those heart to heart, uncomfortable conversations were hard but it made me a better manager.
The most enjoyable part of the job was my ability to travel and train new team members for new locations along with my own.
