    I worked at Olga's Kitchen full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    The people are awesome. Leadership really does a good job listening and adding value to your opinion.

    Cons

    Bonuses are not there as in most other companies. Could be the economy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need a better review system for all. Need to pay hourly employees more to be more competitive.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months - interviewed at Olga's Kitchen.

    Interview Details

    I first met with the assistant manager and had a basic "get to know you" interview. She then set up an interview for me with the store's GM. After a 30 minute conversation (during which I barely got a word in) I was offered the job. There were no hard, hair pulling questions.
