Suggestions for improvement

  • I would like to see the ziosk machines removed. It takes away from the guests experience. The surveys done on them are not accurate. I’ve watched 7 yr old kids take them and 90 yr olds take them and give backwards scores.

What I like about the company

I can count on my paycheck. My coworkers are like family. They once raised over $700 to help me when I was sick. The benefits are great as long as you work over 30 hrs weekly. The health and dental insurance is top notch. 401k for future investment. Constant training on new menu items. Free and discounted food. Great deal of gift cards at Christmas.

What I dislike about the company

I wish my company rewarded jobs well done and held those that are not performing well accountable. I’m not enjoying working holidays.

Suggestions for improvement

  • More contests which encourage employees to increase sales and recognition of employees that stand out and make the company happy

What I like about the company

My company provides a supportive work environment. They offer benefits to their employees; however, sometime don’t offer the hours to get those benefits. The hours can be very flexible, and it’s possible to work multiple jobs if that’s necessary. I am able to communicate with management effectively. They listen and do their best to make the work environment better for every employee. Diversity is rampant, at least at my location and it’s rare to see issues involving discrimination of any kind.

What I dislike about the company

Employees who do not meet specific work standard should be held more accountable or given more incentive to do better. Reversely, employees who effectively perform their duties should be rewarded and given incentives to continue to do so.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Better training, more positive reinforcement than negative. Not in fear of losing job due to outside circumstances

What I like about the company

Some of the management can be very understanding when it comes to health conditions and family crisis. Some co workers are great to work with and the experiences with the guests at times are wonderful and very well rewarded

What I dislike about the company

Co workers slacking as well as management not being as understanding and bias towards certain workers than others
