    I worked at B.R. Guest full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Gym membership for being in operations and corp. Raises for brown nosing. Dining allowance. High turnover leaves room for growth. Lots of training in the operations side of the company.

    Cons

    HR Department is unhelpful, and often sweeps issues under the rug. Consequenses for actions are not consistent, and the company picks and chooses what it wants to do with different employees. Upper managment is not receptive to change. High turnover leaves a lot of gaps open and forces people to overwork. Employee morale is very low in corperate and in operations.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest, nuture and listen to new talent instead of employees who are overpaid and have been there for years. Looking at things from a set of new eyes WILL change your company. Stop treating those who care about the company and want to grow, like trash. Lastly,

    Interview Details

    Intervieewed with HR coordinator and then with internship coordinators. Finally interviewed with specific restaurant GMs. Everyone was very nice and forthcoming about the work and what I would be doing during the internship. No trick questions or intimidating conversations. Very straightforward and to the point: wanted to see if I was willing to work hard and if I would get along with the staff.
