Good place to start off in the business with, hard to grow, and management is cheap

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
-Lots of learning to do off the bat, and you continue to learn & grow as you move through the stations -You work for minimum wage plus tips out which is skimped on by management (you get between 15-60 biweekly depending on the season) -New menus come out all the time without warning and you have to learn them in less than a week regardless of how many shifts you have before the launch if you even have any shifts before then -Poor opportunities for growth and you do not get a pay raise, even if you work there for years & are the reason people come back to visit -The customers can be really interesting to talk to -Employee turn over is high and management does not want to pay to train new employees even though busy seasons come up without us being prepared to handle the situations -Holidays are mandatory to work, including Mother's Day -We serve food that is out of season because head office makes it so, then food is returned to be replaced by something ripe which is a waste of time, money, and effort and does not make sense logically -Machines stay broken for a long time because managers are cheap and will go as long as they can with broken fridges, ice makers, blenders, and other essential devices necessary to make food

Amazing job , Amazing staff

Cora's is very understanding and try to work with your schedule as much as they can. The hours are long and they always make sure you get a break. They push you to the best of your abilities and praise you if you had a great day.

Great place to gain culinary skills and past paced working environment skills.

My time at Cora Breakfast & Lunch has been a great learning experience, from the time I started when I was just in high school to my last day just recently this July. The people were amazing and full of energy, and it was a great time working with them.

Pros

Free lunches, short busy work days.

Cons

Often short staffed
