    Motivated and empowered workforce delivering quality results

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    Proswork life balance is an advantage along with the culture of promoting from within but we should send our operational key performers specially skilled personnel to learn new trends in similar or different business ,so that we are trendsetters in our business

    ConsI am only as good as who I know and how I sell myself ,not on results I deliver based on challenges faced .
    Top management need to invest time in
    strategy development
    strategy deployment
    strategy execution at unit level based on the challenges of individual units
    Eye for detail in managers for competency and efficiency in job, lead by example attitude
    why why analysis by management why some initatives are success and what and who made it possible so that same or similar success stories can be written across organisation

    Advice to Senior ManagementStrategy deployment to each unit through focused communication channels to the lowermost employees ,along with individual benefits of exceeding targets
    Clarity in writing on packages and role expectations, and delivering by promises made during the interviewing process ,otherwise we would have employed great people ,de-motived and producing mediocre results

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Catering Manager, Gourmet Cuisine Toronto

    Catering Manager (Current Employee) Toronto, ON (Canada)

    ProsBenefits, if you are full time.

    ConsAbusive District Manager ( 7 different Catering Managers in the last 3 years)
    Low income….long hours..weekends, 5am starts.
    Office in Basement of building by smelly loading dock.
    Consistently disorganized and under staffed.
    Kitchen staff, changes every 3 months….also poorly treated and underpaid.
    Human resources protect management and leave employees in dangerous and abusive situations.
    no loyalty…firing of decades long staff to hire cheaper labour.
    There is a Core Values manual..they do not follow it.
    oh yeh….and if they agree on an amount you will be paid…check your contract because that will change the second you get your first cheque.

    Advice to Senior ManagementClose Gourmet Cuisine.
    And replace the DM of that unit.

    Never work here!!!

    Sous Chef (Former Employee) Toronto, ON (Canada)

    Prosfull time get you benefits package
    they provide uniforms

    ConsManagement is disorganized and lacks knowledge
    Our District Manager was a screaming, threatening lunatic, 22 staff have quit or been fired in the last 2 years....in a unit that only has 7 employees
    Will lessen hours of long time employees to hire newbies who will work for minimum wage, employee loyalty nonexistent
    No breaks or lunch
    Listed as an Eco friendly company...never followed through on by management
    And health and safety with all new staff constantly below government standards

    Advice to Senior ManagementWork in a kitchen for a week so you understand what you are managing...its not just about trying to execute the lowest labour costs possible. That becomes dangerous.
