Company Culture

Summerwood truly embodies their core values.

Support from management

Area coaches are spectacular. As a former GM, your area coach will not allow you to fail. If you do, it's because you chose to.

Teamwork

Everyone is willing to help you succeed.

Freedom to work independently

Mostly on your own as a gm. Leadership does visit stores regularly.

Internal Communication

Communication from the top down almost daily.

Gender Equality

Nobody really goes either way. Very fair, very respectful team.

Attitude towards older colleagues

If you listen to them, you will excel. Area coaches around 15+years in my case.

Career Development

You can go as high as you want with this company. They promote from within, and it isn't political. They genuinely choose best candidate.

Overall compensation for your work

48k as a GM.

Office / Work Environment

I was is a very bad part of Trenton nj. Frequent visits from police.

Environmental Friendliness

We are the air we breath. If you allow negativity, you will welcome it in your store.

Work-Life Balance

Its restaurants. Long hours.

Company Image

Up and coming from a few years back. Voted taco bell as healthiest fast food.

Job Security

No issues with job security, but someone is always better.

Handicapped Accessibility

My restaurant was 100% ADA compliant

Workplace Safety

Very rigorous training on various safety items.

Challenging Work

It was tacos.

Inclusive / Diverse

As it says. Very diverse workforce.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Make the move and buy out Aarsand. They are garbage. They run the name that we worked so hard to build into the ground.

What I like about the company

My team. My peers, my leadership. AMAZING GM xmas party. Summerwood isn't afraid to give back.

What I dislike about the company

They aren't where I moved to. Come to the Pittsburgh market pretty please.

The work is time consuming. Best practice time management skills are required.

Company Culture

There is no such thing as a culture other than the whim of the family executives at any given moment

Support from management

Family-appointed executives lack real skills and instead rely on others' expertise and then steal the credit

Teamwork

Teamwork among mid-level executives is fine but undermined by upper-level family executives

Freedom to work independently

Workload is based on family personal preferences of personnel and not on basis of merit

Work-Life Balance

There is no work-life balance--it is all work or you are vilified.

Job Security

Your job is secure as long as the family owners like you, no matter how good or bad your work is.
