Company Culture

I became an assistant manager here, and was told that everyone is equally valued then quickly realized there’s company secrets and descrimination all over.

Support from management

Management does not care, and does not listen. Management at this store will only blame the crew below them, and can not take responsibility to save their life.

Teamwork

It really depends on the crew you’re on shift with, typically AM and Graveyard crew does everything they’re supposed too, but not everybody goes to WORK.

Freedom to work independently

Everything you do in a restraunt, is cooperative. Every aspect of it requires team work. Too often I was left by myself.

Internal Communication

You can tell whatever manager, district manager, you want. Regardless of what is brought to their attention, nothing will be done.

Gender Equality

Females in this industry definitely have a better chance at getting hired and moving up. District is very sexist.

Attitude towards older colleagues

The older colleages/management were sexist or immature. There was no guidance to turn too even in training.

Career Development

If they can train you to move you up, they will. They want each store to have a certain number of supervisors and team members to look good for district. It’s also hard to keep employees there, so if they can keep you with the bribe of a pay raise, they will.

Overall compensation for your work

I was on minimum wage, was promoted to supervisor and got a $1 pay raise. Not worth it for all the hours put in.

Office / Work Environment

Storage is not organized, break room is a joke, not everything had a place to go and it quickly became a mess. Bugs found in the bathrooms during the day.

Environmental Friendliness

It really depended on who you worked with, but if management was on shift, everything was hostile and uneasy because everything was your fault in there eyes.

Work-Life Balance

Even prior to becoming an assistant manager, I was spending over 40 hours a week at work. I would never get my schedule until the start of the week it was made for. I was called in on just about every day I had off.

Company Image

They maintain a great image because nobody speaks up about what happens in the kitchen and when the lobby is empty and peeople are waiting in the drive thru.

Job Security

Anyone who doesnt have a flexible schedule or isnt a supervisor will get cut on hours whenever they need too. It is not equal, hours are not shared.

Handicapped Accessibility

A ramp, wide bathroom doors, and main doors were provided, due to goverment law requirements.

Workplace Safety

They try hard, and if the cleanliness regulations were followed, it would be very safe. But they’re not.

Challenging Work

A trained monkey could perform the neccissary tasks and maintain better hygiene.

Inclusive / Diverse

While diversity is a positive thing, it was incredibly imbalanced. There was a total of 2 white females and 2 white males working there out of a total crew of about 25 people.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Replace management, call an exterminator, and replace all the kitchen equipment. Raise the team member pay a little, and simplify the menu.

What I like about the company

Nothing.

What I dislike about the company

The primary goal, like all businesses, is money. But your business, natuarally, is going to run a lot smoother if you have clean operating equipment and a responsible manager.

Company Culture

Not very professional.

Support from management

Leadership hardly communicates with employees, no clear goals or expectations.

Teamwork

Lots of favoritism in the workplace, Everyone's honest for the most part but communication isn't as present.

Freedom to work independently

Older employees, yes. Newer ones get micro-managed.

Internal Communication

Little to no communication, it would be unbelievably difficult to have as a first job.

Gender Equality

Women are treated OK, but are subject to odd standards, expected to be complacent and weaker. Not physically strong or capable.

Attitude towards older colleagues

Older colleagues are welcomed.

Career Development

There aren't any opportunities for real development, No training as a beginner and no professional advancement. The only way to gain opportunities is to have a personal relationship with Management.

Overall compensation for your work

Absolutely no compensation. Paychecks don't feel rewarding for the work you do.

Office / Work Environment

The building's always freezing, other than that, standards are generally met. Air conditioner leaks from the ceiling, and the bathrooms are vandalized beyond belief.

Environmental Friendliness

No eco-consciousness established.

Work-Life Balance

Equal treatment is nearly non-existent, the management has many favorites, and their work-life balance is OK. Otherwise, families and schedules aren't payed enough attention to.

Company Image

It's nice to be a part of something bigger than yourself, but I feel like this particular establishment gives me a bad image.

Job Security

This isn't a stable job.

Handicapped Accessibility

Only one handicap table and maybe a handicap parking spot. Not very accessable but OK.

Workplace Safety

Zero training for accident prevention, floors are always slippery, even with no-slip shoes.

Challenging Work

Yes the work is challenging, but the customers are generally very appreciative. I'm proud of the work I do.

Inclusive / Diverse

In general, not very diverse. Leadership is closed-minded. Little to no racial, gender and spiritual diversity.

Suggestions for improvement

  • I feel like employees could be more of a priority.

What I like about the company

It was very easy to get hired. The food in nice, and most of my coworkers have been nothing but kind to me.

What I dislike about the company

It all felt very unprofessional. I wasn't given any training whatsoever at first, nor was I given a clock in number, schedule or uniform. Since I was hired, I hadn't had one good moment. Management avoids the employees they don't like, my job felt like a joke. Treatment-wise, poor is an understatement.
