    Lack of Respect leads to poor performance

    Abysmal

    Associate (Former Employee) Mesa, AZ (US)

    ProsThe coworkers I had were alright, for the most part. The job itself wasn't bad at all, but the Signal Butte/Baseline location was horrible.

    ConsThe most dysfunctional group of managers I've ever worked with. One chewed dip inside the restaurant while on the clock, one ignored blatant health violations and had an excuse for everything, and another harassed the employees daily about a dress code that she didn't even follow.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGet a new job.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Never again.

    Barista/Cashier (Former Employee) Avondale, AZ (US)

    ProsPeople are fun to work with.

    ConsAnyone could call out thirty minutes before their shift began. It messed up the closing crew ALL the time. Worked more than scheduled all the time. Very busy environment and always running out of food!

    Advice to Senior ManagementConsider a no calling out policy and stop favoring people.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Work you butt off so they make all the money.

    Cashier Hired As Supervisor Lied to (Current Employee) Albuquerque, NM (US)

    ProsGood employee discounts for decent food. Sometimes fun and relaxed working atmosphere.

    ConsPay is poor. You only get 10 cent raises at the MOST every year for your review. They dont follow through on their training matrix, only enough to cover their a. No rewards for good work other than cheap pins to put on you visor only non managers are forced to wear regardless of migraines they produce. Managers only act professional when big wigs are in town. New Mexico district manager favors those of his religion and promotes based on it (Mormon). Comes frozen

    Advice to Senior ManagementReally observe your stores in Albuquerque. Go on undercover boss.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
