If you ask the directors, they would rate 4 or 5. I however disagree. It was not uncommon for the directors to dismiss a Managers contribution or even belittle it, then at a later date introduce it as their idea.
The only time "support" is given is if you are in the inner-circle of directors (directors support directors) other-wise all you get is talk without action, no true concern for the issues and told to fix it yourself. You should know they only care about the item they choose at the time, there can be an issue that effects the entire restaurant and team yet the leadership (directors) will do nothing more than lip service if its not on their list of "important" tasks or not deemed something that could result in a law suit. The directors consistently set unrealistic expectations then blame the Managers when the goal is not met.
Team members many times, most of the time do not work well together, spreading rumors, causing drama and out right not doing their job because someone else did not. This is a result of the upper level directors and their inaction to limit such behavior by providing a better system and providing discipline to those who cause bad waves.
The directors always over load the Managers, i saw this trend for 6 years, with almost a full turn over in GM's during that time.
There was communication, most often turning into an uncontrolled meeting that falls off topic resulting in confusion and a waste of time.
i would have to say its the other way around, they tend to give more opportunity to women and fewer to males.
well, if you think a anniversary pin is adequate recognition then yes they do. there are to many inconsistencies between restaurants and no clear system in place to properly acknowledge and appreciate employees.
there is always opportunity for advancement because they have such high turn over. The training/development is poor,the system is severely lacking.
The pay to little for crew and leaders. The GM's receive a decent salary and the directors make an impressive salary. Benefits used to be great but suffered the last few years and were changing every year.
Constantly having broken or missing equipment and tools. Computers and terminals always going down, taking weeks or months for the directors to make it important enough to fix. but the Manager is still blamed for poor results that came from the broken or missing equipment, even when the Manager had no control over when it would be repaired / replaced.
they are ok i guess, not great.
This depends if you are a director or not. Directors are always able to take vacations, pro days, sick days, etc. If you are a city manager or a gm in a difficult restaurant, you could go years without a vacation (loosing vacation time since you are most likely maxed out and told no you cant take any time) or told yes we will get you a few days off. Really? a few days? not a week or 10 days like the directors but a few days of your earned time. Double standards to the fullest. And then the work schedule. Expected to be available 24/7 if you are a manager or city manager. You days off are not guaranteed. If you have to work 7 days a week because you cant maintain a staff at minimum wage then to bad and the directors do not care.
From my experience no one was proud to say they worked at Del Taco, its like the discount fastmex place and did not inspire pride toward there.
The jobs were secure, probably still are.
there is little to nothing that you could do there if disabled.
they do not provide adequate training on safety
The product is terrible overall, the quality has gone down so far over the last 6 years.
You can give your idea but most times it is shot down because the directors know everything sitting at their desks and sometimes your idea will come back months or a year later as their idea.
I can not offer anything that I liked about my overall experience.
There were to many double standards, Directors who are not qualified but are there because they are personal friends or family of the owner. There is little or no balance between personal and work, they expect you to be available 24/7. I could go on but there is no point.
