A very good company to work for.

Restaurant Manager (Former Employee)

ProsCalifornia Pizza Kitchen is a fast past clean environment to work in. The benefits are good with a quarterly bonus structure, Heath, Dental, Optical and a 401k Plan.

ConsLong hours. Lots of changes with short notice. Larry S. Flax & Richard L. Rosenfield are no longer the owners and leaders of this company.

Advice to Senior ManagementAfter your initial training is complete it is up to you to continue to learn more and stay sharp. Know your stuff or you are off the bus.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
