      Pros

      Company was great when I started in 2006 but the had a big transition in upper management which made a lot og managers leave, or be removed

      Cons

      The company allows DM’s to run without accountability, Over the 10 years I worked for the company the Last DM based everything over his preference not company standard or policy - he violated PRFT policy and never had consequences, never experienced discrimination until new leadership change and sadly left because lack of HR support

      Pros

      Convenient for college students and textbook compensation is helpful. Free employee meals are also nice.

      Only free meals at buffets, no discounts offered at other llocations. High turnover and upper management is very neglectful of lower employees, they don't bother to get to know new employees.
