The owners had a consultant come in (very much like Office Space, if you understand the movie reference if not I'll elaborate). The consultant stood around not doing anything, but writing on a clipboard. Within months many of the workers were let go, including the General Manager who hired me. From my vantage point everybody did their jobs well. Despite that the consultant found their work sub-par. I survived and after hiring new employees, I got to witness first hand that the new employees were horrible. The consultant had left and in his wake the restaurant bled ethics and morale.
Support from management
No support at all, it was every man for themselves and hiding behind skirts of owners when management screwed the pooch.
I had no need of team work in my position.
Freedom to work independently
My position allowed me lots of independence.
Horrible, I was laid off because they hired new employees in my stead when my father died. The liaison between me and the company did not inform me he was gong on vacation. Neither did the company. When I returned my spot was taken and I was laid off due to lack of hours. The General Manager wrote that on a DHSS document but they are now appealing the unemployment I deserve with lies.
Not an issue.
Attitude towards older colleagues
It was not an issue.
You will be stuck in that same spot until your fired for not smiling at the supervisor.
Overall compensation for your work
I was paid money. Other then that no compensation as in "Good job" or Employee of the Month.
Office / Work Environment
Work environment was horrid. Most the workers suck and cannot communicate effectively.
Due to my color and the wish of the Kitchen Leader, he was looking for any issue to get rid of me. But due to my work ethic it took management to stab me in the back.
Like any persons life it depends on that individual to make this balanced not the company.
I haven't a clue
Pray every day that you still have your job if you weren't 100 percent perfect and they are looking to get rid of you. On the other hand if your friends with management or supervisors it does not mater how bad you are.
Not an issue.
Not an issue.
I was too good at my position for it ever to be challenging.
Inclusive / Diverse
It started off diverse how ever after a consultant had the majority of people let go, I came back to a predominately black work force. The new General Manager was hiring all blacks and the head cook in the kitchen was hiring all black people as well.
Suggestions for improvement
- Sell the company to new owners who will reset the work force.
What I like about the company
Before the consultant came in and the owners got more involved, the company was great. I got all my work done independently, didn't' have to worry about any consultant or management breathing down my neck.
What I dislike about the company
Untrustworthy, Uncaring, Usury.
