      Pros

      Hours are great especially for a food service job

      Cons

      I’ve been with the company for 24 years and no training has ever been provided. With each promotion came a year or more of struggling when a simple match up of a mentor could’ve saved a lot of mistakes and frustration. You get promoted and they literally hand you the keys and walk away. District manager, Marketing Manager, you name it never answer emails even when the subject matter is client time sensitive. I could leave tomorrow and no one would care, that is how much we are valued. Very sad. Again, I’ve given 24 dedicated years to this company.
