    Pros

    Benefits, pay, and store image, opportunities, store cleanliness, employee engagement with customers

    Cons

    Some managers were autocratic. However, the majority of them were not.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure your managers understand the family leave act. I was terminated and not given the chance to prove that I was sick and at the same time , my father had been hospitalized. However, I hold no ill feelings. Overall, they re a great company. I wish they would open up in Orlando. I would be one of the first applicants.

    Pros

    I enjoy my customers, co- workers, and managers. I feel our store works as a team for the best interest of our customers.

    Cons

    The pay sucks, I go to work each day knowing I am under paid. I think Burger King pays more.

    Advice to Management

    Review employees pay every six months. There would be less employee turn over we were paid correctly.

    Pros

    Decent Salary for a Department Head "Trainee" Typical Expectations of all markets- (nights, holidays, weekends, . very physically demanding position, never enough labor hours to reasonably complete the production list- not new or unusual.)

    Cons

    What I did not like at all, and what seemed to be somewhat "deceptive" is that they post a position for a department (bakery/ deli/ produce) "manager trainee" and you take all of the prerequisite "management training" (even when highly experienced) and they lead you to believe that you are being groomed for a store of your own in the very near future. IN REALITY- after your training you are told that you, like all other management trainees must "apply for the job" with corporate, and you are at the "back of the line" of all of the other "Manager Trainees" that have come before you, and are now in "Assistant Manager" slots - which is where you end up for a very very long time, as those slots are difficult to fill- they have the most responsibility and the worst schedule (in essence, you are the worker bees for all of the duties & hours that the department manager can't or doesn't want to do. The pay isn't enough for what is required. They post openings for all positions, all of the time, whether the actual need is there or not. (Management Program is deceptive- if you wanted an "Assistant Manager" position, you would have applied for it!

    Advice to Management

    Just be honest- Don't advertise a department head position where one truly doesn't exist. I understand the need to have qualified people "at the ready" but there are way too many "management trainees" overall for the number of positions that are already filled by department heads and trainees that have been waiting for years.

    Pros

    Friendly staff to work with
    Lots of training in customer service and expectations in the industry

    Cons

    Breaks would sometimes be few and far between when we got busy
    Pay is higher than industry norm, but still pretty low

    Advice to Management

    Compensate your employees and take care of them; they are hard working individuals who know what it means to do customer service.
