There were some very unruly employess there that refused to do their job. When i tried to correct tge problem through conversation or in extreme cases sending them home i was never backed up. When a black manager did the same thing rhey wete backed up. Gm and another asst continuously late. When i was late i was demoted and never was previously talked to. Completely unfair and racist. No white employee lasted because they were made fun of and ridiculed. The district manager is just as bad. Wouldn't listen to my concerns and said i was rascist. Sad situation.

Pros and Cons
Pay is okay
Discrimination, double standards, can't discipline employees unless your black

They care more about social status then running a business. If you were not in there click, it didn’t matter how hard you worked. You would never be able to move up

I’m not sure if the company changed at all but when I worked there as a manager I was expected to drop all my personal life to be there. I once called off work as a regular crew member because my grandmother was dying of cancer (17 years old) and was made to cry bc they yelled at me for calling off. Another manager there threatened to assault one of the minor crew members we had (they were 15) and when I contacted the higher up management they did nothing. I left to work at a company that paid me an extra 2/hr as a regular associate.

Pros and Cons
Half off food
Expected to throw away all personal life to work for a company that doesn’t value your hard work

I worked there over a year. Never made manager. However, they wanted me to do managerial duties with no pay increase. Which lead to loss of interest in the job.

Pros and Cons
Steady income, easy to work with my schedule
No respect in the end.

Once there was a manager change, the manager was honestly terrible. Made changes without telling anyone and got mad at us for doing how we knew worked best. Plenty of other complaints about her. Also the pay wasn't that good

Pros and Cons
some free food but probably just due to covid
off the clock discounts depend on the manager not the policy

Management was the reason we had customer complaints, the store needs to be remodeled and is the only one that hasn't. Very unprofessional and back-handed with customers and employees. You will not be appreciated there as a good employee at all.
