Suggestions for improvement

  • The owner needs to learn how to be fair, honest, professional, and a good leader, and use these traits to lead his employees by example.

What I like about the company

It was a valuable learning experience in customer service, dealing with hostile and difficult personalities, and working under pressure. Although, no breaks were allowed, there was always free or discounted food available to eat either before/after your shift or if you could find some down time. Most employees were usually eager to help one another out, assist in training and education, and cover shifts.

What I dislike about the company

The owner refused to pay for overtime, sick leave, or provide health insurance as stated per policy. He would also short employees their hours they were paid by rounding down (for example, if you worked 20.8 hours, you only got paid for 20 hours). The owner expected you to pick up shifts with only a few hours notice, and if you did not comply, you would be punished by having your shifts cut or replaced by other employees. Also, the owner did not pay everyone fairly based on experience or workload. He paid his friends, family members, and the Asian employees a higher salary than others.

Suggestions for improvement

  • I would suggest that the owner put the well being of his customers and employees first, above his insatiable love of making money.

What I like about the company

The customers were great to work with, and they were the only reason why I made an effort at this job. They deserved the best customer service that few employees, and even the owner himself, were willing to offer.

What I dislike about the company

The owner was sexist and racist. He sexually harassed the young, female employees. He spoke badly about each employee behind their backs. He illegally withheld pay from employees. Anytime a customer had a legitimate complaint, he would argue with them and blame them for the problem, because he would do anything he could to refrain from giving any discounts or refunds, even though the way the food was cooked and handled was disgusting and illegal.

Suggestions for improvement

  • One of the worst companies to work for or with all due to the micro-managing, aggressive, uncaring, and hostile owner. As an employee, you will be screamed at in front of staff and employees for any possible and minor reason that the owner sees fit, even if he is mistaken in what is going on. You will be required to work whenever required, and advised of your schedule the night before. You will be underpaid and scammed out of wages owed. As a customer, you would be horrified and disgusted to see what happens in the kitchen. If you call in with a complaint, he will argue on the phone with you for however long necessary and refuse to accept any fault rather than offering a comp or refund for the meal. The Asian staff is treated with priority over other races, even though they are rude towards customers and speak negatively about them in their mother tongue.

What I like about the company

The staff (other than asians) are helpful and teamwork is commonplace.

What I dislike about the company

The owner and how he treats both non-Asian staff and customers. The food is over priced and low quality.
