    Pros

    There use to be some. Not anymore. Unless you like to work 60 hours a week them go ahead.

    Pros

    You get some money compare to other food chain shop .

    Cons

    Before it was good (Back 2010) now a days its really hard as managers treating you as slaves. they don't have any manner with team member and colleagues. Its not their fault as head office giving them pressure. Since they handover to someone else its started become more bloodsucker than before. i worked in both terms and i can see the difference.
