Very productive but very tough on your body.

The job is a very nice job but there are a few cons. With the most important con being that we get paid 9 an hour as a carhop but they work you as if you get paid 11 an hour. We are underpaid and overworked. I and others feel very under-appreciated.

Pros

50% off a meal while you work and a free meal if you work a double.

Cons

Underpaid & not appreciated enough.

Good environment, immature employees/management

Flexible shifts, easy job, but the employees are all very young, meaning immature and call in alot. Shift managers were all very immature as well. Just not a very serious workplace. But I was 16/17 when I worked there so it was fine at the time.

Pros

Flexible shifts

Cons

Have to pay for meals

Fine

This was the worst place I ever worked, but a lot of the jobs I've had have been pretty okay. The uniform was pretty comfy at our location, but the hours were long and you almost always had stains on your clothing. Management was okay but certainly could have been better managed.

Pros

50% discount on shift, tips, chill environment

Cons

hectic workplace, rude customers
