    I worked at Restaurant Technologies full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Independence, your competence is mandatory if you want to fit in.

    Cons

    Inconsistent with training. Either you get it or you have to "figure it out."

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Train you managers to be manager and not belittle the AS position.

    I have been working at Restaurant Technologies full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    working with some really good people, including some in our corporate office. flexible i.e. being able to come in & take off when you need to, but see below

    Cons

    while you can work a flexible schedule, you're always on call, it doesn't matter what day, hour, holiday, you WILL be working even when not at the office. you constantly hear that the sky is falling i.e. we aren't profitable enough. truth be told, our CEO is an idiot. we were bought out 3 years ago with the goal of growing the company then selling it, nothing wrong with that, but our CEO is incompetent as evidenced by his "business plan", leadership style - (don't question anything!) and continuing bungling judgment. his advice to a company survey saying we don't have enough employees to do most jobs? "you'll have to work long hours and more days". He brought in a consultant a few years ago who was as dumb as him and helped cripple the company, to which we still haven't recovered. He forced out the guy who founded the company, and announced it in a very short email late on a Friday afternoon. He promotes a brownnosing & incompetent atmosphere, and surrounds himself with like minded fools. The emperor has no clothes! (and no common sense)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It's time for a change at the top. The buck is suppose to stop with the top person, but lord knows it's never his fault. Time to be a real man - admit you have failed as a CEO, and resign.

    I worked at Restaurant Technologies

    Pros

    Pay was fair, employees at the depot level were great to work with, we all got along and worked together.

    Cons

    Corporate was controlling, micro managing. they did not trust there own employees. If you spoke your mind you are considered " not engaged". Very unhealthy enviroment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let your managers manage the business, learn how to trust people. Stop expecting unrealistic expectations and holding people accountable for it. Was great place to work until 2009.

    I worked at Restaurant Technologies

    Pros

    Restaurant Technologies Inc has a unique service offering with contracts with multiple national companies bringing a certain amount of stability to the company.

    Cons

    The turnover has been very high by any standard over the last three years. The pay is below comparable positions in similar companies.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Your employees are your most valuable asset. Start treating these like they are and you will finally see the company achieve it targets.
