No room for growth

Easy work responsibilities but no room for growth within the company as most of it is franchised. Working six days a week with less than 40 hours. Owners stop you to have part time jobs.

Good first job

You will deal with difficult customers in a busy environment but overall it teaches great lessons that will help in many future jobs. The pay is usually minimum wage.
