    Great food and great Company to grow with. I worked hard and was promoted after only 6 months! It's fast paced so there is little chance to get bored. Fun atmosphere which helps when it gets really busy.

    Cons

    Sometimes it can be very stressful but you have to over come things like that there. I have fun for the most part and really enjoy it.

    I worked at Supermacs full-time

    Pros

    - Flexible hours - Bonus pay after midnight. - Can often choose to work a large number of hours in the week; great if you need a temporary cash boost. - You will become comfortable working in a dynamic fast-paced setting; both high stress and quiet/make-work environments will be experienced. Knowing how to cope with each dynamic is a transferable skill.

    Cons

    - The flexibility of hours can sometimes mean you either dont have enough or, at the other extreme, have far too much. - Staff turnover rate can be a little high, especially before college/university semesters start.

    I have been working at Supermacs full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Fast paced. Team orientated. Fun environment with colleagues. Interact with public. meeting new people. High quality product. high cleaning standards.

    Cons

    Cutting labour costs is prioritised so expect to be short staffed most of time. Very little encouragement from upper management when you do well, expect to hear everything you've done wrong though. Demands a lot of your time. work life balance is non existent. Unsocial hours.
