I worked at Elmo's Diner

Pros

Great co-workers, overall nice crowd. Team-oriented environment, with fair compensation. Lots of food options, hard to get bored here. Never experienced any stereotypical foodservice nightmares (foh vs boh animosity, evil managers, awful customers, etc.).

Cons

It's food service, so all the usuals - lots of standing / walking / working your ass off. The kitchen is hot in the summer and cold in the winter.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep an open mind. It's served you well in the past and will continue to do so in the future.

    I worked at Elmo's Diner

    Pros

    The food is actually decent, and the employees are a friendly bunch. The customers are the best part because they show you how much of a good worker you can be elsewhere.

    Cons

    Their lack of concern about your physical state at times and sometimes your mental state. Not all people are survivors in every thing they go through in life. It was way too orderly and a job that was supposed to be fun-loving that ended up being a job that was taken way too seriously by the managers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The management was rocky because it should have been more concerned on the good teamwork of their coworker instead of on how much they could make their bosses happy by making others feel low or beneath them at times.
