Suggestions for improvement

  • General pay increases. Who is considered management by corporate. Company vehicles for certain positions that do work outside of four walls.

What I like about the company

Did not have child care for first 10 months of my sons life. He was able to come to work with me and I worked a super flexible schedule ( I am one of the managers) so I was able to work before we opened. There is a donation program we used employee based that if something were to happen to you and cause unexpected expenses you could write in and the company would help pay.

My location does two huge fundraisers a year to give back to foundations and we have raised over $100k for one group and around $60k for another. Plus the smaller more personal organizations we partner with to help raise money. Community and giving back is a huge part of the job I love.

What I dislike about the company

There are double standards when it comes to staffing due to certain positions not having enough people looking to be that person. I believe if everyone was held to the same standard and wages were more desirable for the hours worked there would be more people interested in currently unsought positions

Suggestions for improvement

  • My only suggestion would be to offer pay outs for vacation time not taken. I understand we want to promote employees taking their time off but we are given a lot of time off and sometimes it is impossible to use it all because there is so much for us to do.

What I like about the company

I am often thanked and recognized for all the hard work I do, which motivates me to work even harder. I feel comfortable speaking with my direct supervisor, her supervisor, and even the head of the department about any struggles I am going through, both professionally and personally. Everyone has days where they don’t feel like coming into work, but I can honestly say those are far and few between for me. I am proud of the company I work for and it only motivates me to work harder when I see how far ahead we are of the competition. Even though we work hard, there is always something fun going on as well, whether it be a game of bingo in the training room or food trucks brought in for a free lunch for everyone.

What I dislike about the company

It would be nice if there were a cafeteria so employees have someplace to get food on days where they don’t feel like going out or didn’t bring anything. There are very few places that deliver in the area. The only thing I disapprove of is that sometimes workplace events are not scheduled around the busy times in my department so it is hard for us to participate in those even if we want to.

Company Culture

There is no sense of teamwork. You are on your own for the most part.

Support from management

I've shared multiple concerns with management for food and sanitation issues. They aren't concerned or just say they'll address it, but it doesn't ever get corrected.

Teamwork

Servers do not help each other out. Certain co-workers dominant the kitchen and control how it flows at times.

Freedom to work independently

You definitely are on your own. Getting help is sometimes impossible from anyone.

Internal Communication

Hardly any communication between manager to employee for positive feedback or between co-workers in one area to another area.

Gender Equality

I feel like they hire certain positions for certain genders. I think they are old school in that regard.

Attitude towards older colleagues

The attitude overall is very poor. Lots of favoritism towards a select few.

Career Development

They say you'll cross train, but aren't quick to make it happen. Growth development doesn't really exist there.

Overall compensation for your work

In our market we are being paid less than other stores. Not appreciated from management, at least at a weekly basis.

Office / Work Environment

There is a lot if verbal hostility. It has warm and cold spots. It is cramped in some areas.

Environmental Friendliness

Very hostile environment. A lot of unwanted attention from males to females is there. No recycling, excess garbage, and just wasted everything.

Work-Life Balance

They understand some things, but if it's very short notice, they aren't supportive at all. Work is carried home for a lot if people.

Company Image

I have never been so disrespected by management and all workers before. They have great food but it doesn't support its staff financially or extrinsically.

Job Security

They don't fire a lot if people, so show up, do your job, and I guess you are secured.

Handicapped Accessibility

Ramps and seating available.

Workplace Safety

Wet floors, crowded work spaces, trip hazards, and objects on the floor.

Challenging Work

You get a full work load and are expected to finish it all in a reasonable time, minimal time.

Inclusive / Diverse

There is a diverse group if workers. I feel it is just a generic American culture.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Better communication to all areas and between all interactions for start to finish of the guest experience.

What I like about the company

It is usually busy. Not a lot of down time that you are forced to deep clean areas.

What I dislike about the company

Lack of responsibility for actions. Poor attitudes from almost all workers.
