Company Culture

The company pushes the culture, but it seems like management doesn't really follow it.

Internal Communication

Managers seem too be only about themselves for the most part, and don't do things properly all the time.

Challenging Work

It gets stressful during busy hours, but if you can multitask it isn't too bad.

Inclusive / Diverse

They value diversity in the sense of race, but i feel like not so much in opinions.

Suggestions for improvement

  • I would make stricter criteria for hiring or promoting to managers, as well as giving more lower level workers options to climb in the company.

What I like about the company

I have met a lot of great people in the restaurant. Turnover is high, but we meet a lot of new and interesting people. Sometimes we also have very relaxed work days, or even some work parties where we will get food for reaching certain goals in the company.

What I dislike about the company

I disapprove of the managers not following the company's core beliefs, even though they stress them a lot. There also seems to be a bit of secrecy among the managers and distrust between each of them which leads to a lot of issues.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Recycling would be a huge change. Most restaurants have at least a bin for boxes to be recycled.

What I like about the company

Being older I have been allowed to have an extremely flexible schedule. I have also been singled out to train and supervise even though I dont care to work full time.

What I dislike about the company

I think the healthcare should be offered to both long term full and part time employees. Recycling would be good, especially with the amount of boxes trashed.

What I like about the company

One time I had a personal issue that caused me to be distant at work. My manager noticed and allowed me to take the rest of the day off. Self care is important and my place of work is supportive of mental health.

The hours can be long and you never know when youll be able to go home
