Just Dont

Food Service (Former Employee) Columbus, OH

ProsYou get into the zoo for free...that's about it.

ConsManagement is unconcerned about staff health and safety. Staff must stand outside with no shade even when there is a heat advisory. Sun block and umbrellas had to be begged for.
No overtime (ever).
Extremely poor management overall.

Advice to Senior ManagementTake better care of your employees. Provide overtime to employees that must stay after their shift has ended to prepare for health inspection the night before it is to take place. Hire managers that are goal oriented and have good organizational skills.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
