Company Culture

Most of the managers are very nice but there are a few who aren't

Support from management

There are a few terrible and rude managers but most are supportive

Teamwork

You must clearly communicate things to the customer

Freedom to work independently

Sometimes someone will not do something they should and I get irritated when I have to do it for them

Internal Communication

Most are good at communication but some just choose to not communicate

Gender Equality

Why would they not?

Attitude towards older colleagues

We don't have anyone over the age of 45 so I can't say that they don't

Career Development

Really your only opportunity for a promotion is to manager

Overall compensation for your work

I am happy with my wage for my work

Office / Work Environment

It is hot but that is to be expected working in a kitchen

Environmental Friendliness

There is a lot of paper and food waste

Work-Life Balance

You work 6 days per week instead of 5 but the shifts are shorter

Company Image

I would rather have this job than no job

Job Security

They are always hiring and I know my job will eventually be lost to automation

Handicapped Accessibility

There are stairs and ramps

Workplace Safety

I never received any direct training but it is common sense what to avoid

Challenging Work

The work its self is rather simple but there is a lot of stress and pressure

Inclusive / Diverse

We have very diverse employees

Suggestions for improvement

  • Having a chair or two in the back would allow me to relieve myself during an 8 hour shift of standing on my feet. Also, not everyone wears a headset. Often, I will be the only one wearing a headset and no one will know we have someone in the drive thru. I will have to shout out to them that we need food and it is very annoying.

What I like about the company

Most of the managers are cool and supportive and like to joke around. They won't get mad at me for a problem I wasn't aware of. They have worked with me to find a work schedule that will work with my school schedule. If I need to stop working or I able to work for even a week, they will work with me to get me shifts. Minimum wage is high. The food is delicious and I am allowed to eat some, when I want, for free. The other employees are very fun. Unless we have a lot of current customers to serve, it is a very fun environment.

What I dislike about the company

The scheduling. When I first started working, the schedule was only scheduled like 2 days in advance. I had no idea when I was working next and even got texted "where are you?" a few times by a manager because I didn't know I had a shift. I even considered quitting because I wasn't getting enough shifts and I didn't know when they were and so I felt like I couldn't commit to anything because I might have to go into work out of the blue.
