    I have been working at Alonti Catering part-time

    Pros

    The day goes by very fast, get there at 6:00am do a little bit of prep leave at 6:30am do a couple of deliveries, get back at around 8:30am do some more prep work or dishes, then leave again at about 10:00-10:30 do 2 or 3 deliveries, arrive back between 12:00-12:30pm do some dishes and some cleaning and your day is done. Tips are great, especially when there are only a few drivers, as the tips are pooled and paid every two weeks with your check.

    Cons

    Must use your own car and your own gas. Tips are pooled. If someone does 6 deliveries in one day and someone else only does 1 delivery that day they still get the same amount. Sometimes the customers tip and other times they dont tip at all. (Customers usually have accounts) A lot of driving and wear and tear on your vehicle.

    Advice to Management

    Get a company vehicle, or give more of an allowance for gas.

    I have been working at Alonti Catering full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    No nights nor weekends. All major holidays off. Unheard-of in the restaurant biz. Decent pay structure.

    Cons

    Too many levels of supervision. Each level isolates the next from the actual goings on at store level. No accountability

    Pros

    Above average industry pay, company provides cell phone & laptop. Generally no weekends and evenings.

    Cons

    Small business aspiring to be big business without streamlining corporate structure and HR. Mismanagement and unnecessary micromanagement destroys morale, with high turnover among disgruntled sales managers and associates. Benefit package insufficient. No vacation for 1 full year.

    Advice to Management

    Decrease base salary, increase commissions to balance work performance expectations and compensation.

    -No breaks (breaks not encoruaged or offered to workers) -Food Allowance deduction -Early hours during holidays 3am or earlier. -No training -Pay for uniforms -No gas/parking fee compensation -Adding about 300 miles a week on vehicle -Unequal delivery runs. 4/0 ratio at times -Unnecessary runs for small, forgotten items - One time raise of .50 cents - Required to fulfill mulitple positions -High turn over -No product diversity -Large crew makes for small tip splits - Menu uniformity, not willing to diversify to local area -Poor food safety and sanitation practices -GMO Food -Unwilling to improve cooking techniques or food quality -Not a growth driven company -Golden brown is burnt

    Advice to Management

    In the past, I have done less work in kitchens and have gotten paid much better. There are people filling three or four different roles in your stores, realize their worth and compensate accordingly before they realize what they are actually worth.

    Pros

    Most of the people are nice

    Cons

    Were not truthful when hiring. Ie: there are nights and weekends. They don't give much notice either. If a salesgirl puts an order in on Tuesday night at midnight for Wednesday morning at 6:30 we will get a call at 2:00am letting us know we need to come in. We also do work weekends. Call the cafe and see if they will do a lunch and breakfast and snack on a Saturday . They will say yes and everyone knows the food doesn't prep, cook, or deliver itself. Also, no benefits and no room to move up.

    Advice to Management

    Communicating by not yelling Is a good start. Actually listen to your staff and give raises to those who deserve it. Guarantee people will care more and less mess ups and therefore more profit
