Counter, Bakery and Assistant Cook (Former Employee) – Kailua, HI – 8 February 2017
Zippy's was my first job, I didn't know what I was getting into with this one. Working in any food industry is very rough. You are responsible for the food and the service that goes out to each and every customer. There were times where I wanted to walk out, but I am a team player and I knew that the team and I needed to be a the same level of understating. We needed to have the same goal. I learned so much working here, so much that I can't even put words together to explain... the pay wasn't worth the time and effort that each employee had to put in. Getting paid $8 an hour no overtime, no holiday pay, no support from management. I suppose if I had worked there for years maybe I would have more understanding of how things work the way they do.

good entry level place to work to gain skills, however not a place to make a career or for long term employment. Seems that they don't have enough staff and always short handed. Raises are 1x per year and everyone gets the same small pay increase whether you perform at a higher level or average level. Free meals are a plus. Management is hit or miss, some are skilled while others are out for themselves.
Cleanliness and friendliness is what it takes to be an asset to the company...which every employee should have at any job.

My experience with this company has given me the proper training in many areas, from cleanliness to friendliness. I recommend this company to anyone who is looking for flexibility of schedule, good benefit, good management and of course good food!

Cashier/Customer Service (Former Employee) – ‘Ewa Beach, HI – 30 March 2015
A typical day at work wasn't that great . Not everyone got along so it would be hard to get through the day around that environment . The management was not fair most of the times . Enjoyable part of the day was talking story with the customers & giving them what they wanted .
Counselor (Former Employee) – Kailua, HI – 1 October 2012
Although I only worked here for a short time, I did enjoy my time there and felt like the managment really knew what they were doing. I had a fun crew to work with and I never had to worry about my job security at all.
