    I have been working at Noodles & Company full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I love the company, they treat people really well and actually CARE about you as a person. If you want to move up, you can. If you meed training or anything, you get help as long as you have a great management team. I left and went to Potbelly, I came back to Noodles because i love it there.

    Cons

    Sometimes you need to stay longer than your scheduled time but that happens with almost any job. A few stores closed and thay makes people paranoid about having a job.

    Advice to Management

    Keep learning amd groqing as a company.
