There's some good....and a lot of bad

Alright so I didn't spend a lot of time at this company. I'll start off with the plus side. You get to move up quickly. The base pay is a little higher than minimum. You're basically going to be working with the same people and get to know your team, which can be a plus or a downside depending on the people you work with. You do get to have a free meal and free coffee as well. Now the downsides. Some of these do depend on the management people you get stuck with so it's mostly based on personal experience. Upper management is seriously stupid. I was expected to do my new role perfectly while having my hours cut, which took away prep time, despite not having the role title officially and only being with the company for about a month or 2. Training is done through a screen. I was told to do modules that could only be done during work but I was still expected to do my regular duties on top of that. I got minimal training and help from other people. I got trained a bit by the former hot chef who was very eager to leave. While it's not hard it is very fast pace especially working in the morning so being new and having no support makes for a stressful time. A lot of the maintenance of the store was not kept up. This is a store specific problem though. You aren't allowed to take tips. This is a huge fault because given how busy the morning was you could easily make 5+ additional dollars an hour at no cost to the company which would make the work load a bit more worth it.

Pros

Free lunch

Cons

Understaffed

Fun plave to work at

It is a good company to work at. However if you are nor used to fast pace this is not the place.They work with your schedule. I was going to school and working at the same time. They are really understanding on that part
