    Be prepared to have good days and bad days. Certain chefs can be a bit bipolar at times!

    Server, Porter (Current Employee)
    Berrien Springs, MI

    Pros- Stable hours. You don't have to worry about too much variability in your paycheck, which is good for budgeting.
    - Clean and safe environment.
    - Not too fast paced most of the time.

    Cons- Benefits at my location were horrible. The only "benefit" was 40% off of a single meal after working 12 hours. When you're not getting too many hours, that benefit leaves a lot to be desired! On top of barely earning above the minimum wage, the benefit is basically negligible.
    - Lack of "community" feeling. Upper management has no interest in knowing non full-time employees. I still don't understand how you can't call someone by their name when you have a nametag on!
    - Chefs at my location are either nice, or complete jerks (for no reason whatsoever!). You kind of have to learn who to stay away from.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBe more friendly to the workers! Take five seconds out of your "busy" day spent in the executive office and ask workers how they're doing, if they had a good weekend, etc. Make the working experience a little more enjoyable!

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Mediocre job with okay benefits and low pay.

    Barista (Current Employee)
    Northfield, MN

    ProsLots of time off (unpaid) as the restaurant is only staffed minimally during summer and time off for students (you get two weeks off for Christmas, spring break, etc). The work is not hard and the place is always staffed well enough to deal with the students - it is very fast paced.

    ConsIt is disorganized, and the pay is not good. The pay seems okay, however with all the time off it makes your annual income sadly low. The benefits are only okay and if you don't hold an office position you pay more on them so you can have them through the summer.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBe professional and take employees behaving badly seriously. It is frustrating for people that work hard every day to see others not doing anything or constantly getting in trouble and not getting written up or fired.

    Overall it was a delightful experience

    Caterer (Former Employee)

    ProsSome pros about working at Bon Appetit are good camaraderie amongst co-workers, a chance to deal with customers, definitely a place for a person who enjoys being around people.

    ConsA con for Bon Appetit is there isn't much room for growth, and most the skills learned here don't transfer over to another field.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeeping everything the same

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
