    Pros

    Challenging environment that encourages creative problem solving.

    Cons

    The team is set up to continually coach or "write up" part time employees that are hardly qualified for the part time positions they are in. This promotes constant turnover and motivational issues among the team.

    Advice to Management

    Instead of wide ranging documents or emails regarding policy and proceedure, a "right way every day" aproach would get everyone on the same page and increase employee engagement. There are far too many critical steps to safely execute each job to leave it up to an email message that was sent long ago and been open to interpretation.

    Pros

    "Event specialists" demo products, usually by cooking and offering samples. If you like cooking and persuading people to buy your product, you'll like this job. Reasonable pay for demo work. Currently have a very good immediate supervisor doing the best possible with sometime difficult circumstances.

    Cons

    Schedule can change with only a days notice(must check online daily for cancellation or addition of "event"). Not easy to plan life. AND HERE'S A BIGGIE. Corporate now expects exactly only 360 minutes to be claimed as time worked for a shift. This, even when additional time is spent cleaning at end of shift and then filling out required online survey questionaire about your days "event". Often these add up to as much as 30 extra minutes without pay. You're not forced to stay longer and clean, just guilted into it. And if you don't stay, you're likely to see your hours for the next week or so cut.

    Advice to Management

    At the very least pay employees for the additional time we put in to fill out the required survey after our "event"(shift). Also let event specialists TASTE the food they are serving to the public so we can be better able to "tell and sell". We want to drive sales. When a customer asks "how does it taste?" and we have to say something like "I heard that it's good" they often shy away because they don't understand why we can't at least taste the food we're trying to sell them on. Honestly, neither do I.
