COOK/CASHIER (Former Employee) – El Paso, TX – July 26, 2018
Every single day is pretty much just repetition, so once you learn the job, you can only get faster at it. The way the job works, if you cant cook during the lunch hour, you cant work there. It is very busy and you need to be able to keep the line moving without fail.

Working at Sarku was my first "official" job away from anyone I knew. It was an awesome working environment that I really loved.It did lack any kind of job advancement so you were pretty much stuck not many places to climb up. My store manager was awesome but regional manager was complete opposite.
Maitenance (Former Employee) – Paramus, NJ – May 29, 2018
What really upset me about being under this company was the lack of paid overtime. They expected me to work overtime. I had to clean and arrange the tables and chairs while everyone else sat and hung around including the manager. I was in utter disbelief and It took me 30 minutes and sometimes an hour. I did this for 3 times until I decided to quit.
Typical day at Sarku consisted of making sure all inventory was placed in the right place, keep the cashier area clean, greed customers in a friendly manner, give out samples enthusiastically, help clean out at the end of day and close register. It was a fun environment to work in, most of the time. Weekends were usually the busiest times. We would get a 30 min lunch during which during food would be provided free if asked for. Salary was not high enough though, but even then it was one of the highest salaries for a crew member in this mall location.
I always look forward to coming into work, typically opening the shop if I get there earlier then the others. It can hectic during the holidays, standing for long hours during the day and making sure all orders are placed correctly. I've learned to multitask but at the same time paying close attention to detials with a customer order.

theres little to no benefits but they do offer a lot of hours if youre willing to work for it. Currently still offers a lot of overtime at 1.5x of your base pay which is better than many of the restaurants out there that gives u maximum of 39 hours.
Work youre way up super fast if you got what it takes
Cashier (Former Employee) – Niles , IL – March 8, 2018
For a part-time job I was getting paid very well , the people there were very sweet and it was a pretty good environment to work in overall . The hours weren’t always flexible but I was able to make it work .
I learn so much by working there how to handling the store and make ordering and being a cashier and cook at the same time and taking care of customer when they needed help with something and talking to them.
The manager hired me as a cook but i was under-age so he fired me. The job itself is pretty fast, you must make sure that all food orders are up to par or else customers come back and complai. even though we sold most of the same foods as other chinese restaraunts, people still came back for seconds. you get free food but you have to cook it yourself.
Cashier (Current Employee) – Bakersfield, CA – December 23, 2017
Terrible place to work. No phone at the work place only my managers number. Lazy manager but they won’t fire him because he’s the only good one in the area. No easy way to contact HR or anybody else except our customer care. You have to speak to someone high up directly if you want something addressed and even then it’s hard to get them to listen. No real computer or office. Super cheap work place too. Constantly raising up prices and taking out ingredients to save money obviously so the owners can make more money while we have to deal with the aftermath.
