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.
