I worked at Carlson Restaurants

Pros

Lots of time off, good company ethics flex schedule, good employee screening process, benefits first day, freindy support team

Cons

Desperate, dying brand that has seen it's day. Too many coupons bring in bad crowd to have to deal with, complicated, senseless menu

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Sell off units to franchisees, go back to basics with menu, stop trying to be fancy restaurant and be who you were

    I have been working at Carlson Restaurants

    Pros

    They have fair pay with bonus potential, generous time off and little supervision which provides flexibility to run errands during the day. They also provide restaurant discounts.

    Cons

    Culture can sometimes be corny, management staff is not the most competent, job tasks are not challenging and the most qualified people are not always rewarded.
