    I have been working at Dean & DeLuca part-time (more than an year)


    Improving drink-making skills.
    For the most part, nice, fun co-workers.
    Get to see a lot of people.


    The pay raise system was unfair.
    Preferred employees got a raise, while others did not (even if they worked just as hard.)
    Some employees did not seem to respect upper management.
    **This was all under one manager who Transferred, however**

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employees. When they say they want to work more hours, let them work more than two days a week. When they tell you they get too overwhelmed by too many people coming in, and that we need more staff working, add an in-between shift. By making your employees happier, you will be, in turn, making them able to more properly take care of your customers, resulting in a better experience and higher chances of turning customers into regulars.

    I knew an employee, so she gave me a referral, and told me to come in during a downtime. I stopped by in the afternoon, asked for the manager, let him know who referred me, and he handed me an application. He handed me an application and told me to fill it out, and right after that we had an interview. He took my application, and told him he would call withing five days.
