    I worked at Supermacs full-time

    Pros

    Other employees are nice. Salary is paid weekly. Staff vouchers for nearby Supermac's restaurants. Dress code is pretty casual. Free parking.

    Cons

    Feels like the company wants to get as much as possible out of employees for as little as possible.... Salaries aren't great. You'll get the bare minimum amount of annual leave they have to give you, and you'll be expected to work long hours. Employees are expected to clock in and out (including lunch breaks), even employees who are paid salaries rather than paid by hour. Gives the impression that you're not trusted as an employee. There is a rota where all employees are allocated weeks to be responsible for cleaning the staff kitchen. Processes are lacking, it's not an easy place to get work done. Culture isn't great; there's a culture of micro management and my experience with my own manager was highly negative. I felt constantly on edge and my stomach was in knots from the moment I arrived each morning until the time I left for home. From conversations with colleagues, I know that I was not the only person brought to tears. To be fair to them, they've built an enormously successful company so if this is how they want to run it then who's to stop them - clearly it works for them. But I personally wouldn't recommend Supermac's to anybody looking for a job.

    Opportunities to progress are there if you work for it. Meet people every day. Great relationship between staff and management. Fast paced. Free food.

    Cons

    Long unsociable hours. Pay is only ok, considering the amount of hard work and hours put in. 30 minute break working 10 hours.
