I worked at Eurest Dining Services full-time (more than 5 years)Pros
No nights no weekends Monday-Friday. Great place to learn how to run a business by the numbers. I became a whiz at understanding and forecasting flash reports and how to manage to the budget. Many a week I was within $20 of my forecast, and I thank you for for that knowledge.Cons
Unethical DM's moving money from accounts to hide losses or transferring labor to dummy accounts to make flash reports look correct to Sr Management. Forced to take sub par drop shipments of product so purchasing could receive their volume rebate, then told how you did not meet your inventory turns that quarter and bonus withheld.
Taught how to read the monthly statements but then asked not to question why my subsidized account was billed for weeks for a floating chef that was never onsite because the other account could not afford the support, or why invoices were transferred to my unit but product was used at another account.
Managers and Chefs forced to take pay reductions of between $10k and $18k because they have been with the company so long that their benefits cost the unit to much.Advice to ManagementAdvice
Eurest is no longer a food service company, they are a purchasing company that happens to sell food. They have moved away from Great Food, Great Service, Great Results, to just Great Results by any means necessary. Eurest really needs to go back to the basics and review their Vision and Values.Doesn't RecommendNeutral OutlookNo opinion of CEO
