disappointed

Lead Line Cook (Former Employee) Newark, CA

Prosthere's no shortage of hours for cheap employees

Consi thought this was an upgrade from my previous employer, but i was very disappointed. they tried to cheat me on my pay by promising one rate and delivering another, waited till id been there 2 weeks before i was put in the system/on the books. management is completely incompetent and overpaid, they all just hide in the office till the rush hits. i was expected to do everything by the book even though they werent, such as a promotion given to a dishwasher that has never worked boh but the kitchen manager had clearly began fraternizing so she got the job after 2 days. ive worked at some shady places but this is the absolute worst job ive ever had. management is a joke, horrible communication, spineless snakes.

Advice to Senior Managementquit.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
