    Pros

    it was a job, made okay money, not the best type of work but could be worse. manager wasn't a jerk but wasn't my best friend either. you are expected to show up on time and do your job.

    Cons

    you are a fast food employee, would suck anywhere. you have to bend over backwards for angry customers and always act happy to help. you are providing a service.

    Pros

    Co worker connections are important considering you have to have constant communication through meal rushes. Its easy to get close to the people you work with. A great way to gain multi tasking experience and general management materials can be gained.

    Cons

    Its customer service first and foremost. About 90% of customers don't see you. They see something that feeds them so more often than not, you spend your time trying to keep the customer happy any way that you can.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider cost of living raises PLEASE

    Pros

    Great first job for a teenager or if you're working through school. Advancements are possible but DO NOT count on it really just depends on management and your relationship

    Cons

    Slight favoritism don't believe they have a set criteria on the requirements to move up which just allows management to bring up who ever THEY WANT

    Need to update their Blackwood, New Jersey location to compete with the newer style franchise showing up in the area. The interstate is near by and would generate a good return on their investment, specifically

    Pros

    Every location is different. So your experience will vary. The work is generally pretty easy. Most managers let you eat for free or at least get a big discount on food. Flexible hours. Build teamwork skills.

    Cons

    The pay is terrible. You will live pay check to pay check. Working with managers that you don't like can make your day bad. Your on your feet all day and I'm always experiencing bad foot pain. Your always sweating from being in the kitchen. It's hard work and your gonna be tired at the end of the day
