Company Culture

Everyone is very nice and helpful

Support from management

Apparently if one of the employees are needing help and asks the main manager for help, he could get fired for helping mark the clean and dirty tables on the ipad.

Teamwork

We all try to help each other to keep business moving fast.

Freedom to work independently

Internal Communication

Sometimes the manager's don't communicate with the employees very well.

Company Culture

They're all different individuals with different backgrounds which work to make things broaden.

Support from management

Horrible. Just that simple. All the good ones quit or got fired because of the sneaky ones. Sad.

Teamwork

No one likes to stock and its Management responsibility to make sure it gets done. When its brought to their attention they still allow it to happen. Then get the incoming staff to do that while trying to get tickets done too. How can you continuously go do that and remember your orders? Ridiculous.

Suggestions for improvement

  • They have already relaxed the dress code, by allowing tattoos to be visible, so basically I think the pay scale should be addressed

What I like about the company

They believe that family comes first, and try hard to make every employee feel like part of their family. They do their best to accommodate young high school students by working around their class and sports schedule

What I dislike about the company

I don't feel the pay scale is right. After working there for over 5 years, I still don't make $10.00 an hour

Suggestions for improvement

  • Everyone in my department needs to retrained, so everyone is doing the tasks the right way the first time and everything has order to it.

What I like about the company

Every day is like a new day with new people to talk to and make laugh.

What I dislike about the company

They have you push certain things everyday and some people just don't want it they just came in for a meal in most cases and do not want to shop.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Treat you employees with respect and don't allow guest to disrespect them either. Have a shift lead for every shift who can assist any department when overwhelmed or if someone calls in they can step in.

What I like about the company

I really enjoy my coworkers. I've made some life long friends and they make the day funner.

What I dislike about the company

Expecting us to work doubles every holiday and then cutting our hours to less then 10 hours a week. Expecting us to do the job of 2 people in the same amount of time.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Pay better. They expect an incredible amount of work for very low wages. They are very cheap. Raises are laughable. Lose the employee favoritism.
