Advice to ManagementAdvice

it's just sandwiches, you aren't changing the world, too buddy buddy, don't fix what ain't broke. Too many new limited time offers. you don't need monthly goals if they never change

    I worked at Jason's Deli full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    High standards in terms of food quality. Fresh produce, other than the soups most items are made daily. Decent hours.

    Cons

    Low pay, no recognition, jaded staff. We had four managers quit in an eight month period. The staff moral was so low that most of the work conversation focused on how no one wanted to be at there, or attempting to find a new job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Up the pay. Minimum wage for the work I did is insulting. Hire better managers, not just guys who come in having no clue what's going on. At the end of the day, thank the people who work there. They will appreciate coming into work if they feel they're effort was appreciated. My current job, the owner shakes my hand at the end of the day and tells me that I did a good job. Small gesture, makes my day.

    I worked at Jason's Deli full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    The schedule gives each manager 1 weekend off a month, and 2 days off in each week, working a 48 hour work week. With no bar to worry about, there aren't many late nights, even when closing. Upper management was supportive and interested in personal development. Having major holidays off was a plus.

    Cons

    There is a lot of micromanagement that trickles down the latter. Many of the companies departments outside of operations are disorganized, understaffed, and have a lack of training to support the delis. Once you've been with the company as a GM for a few years, job growth is stagnant as well as salary. The company has moved in a direction of hiring less qualified people that they can pay less money too to increase profits.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop trying to constantly change everything. Simplify the menu. Its impossible to please everyone all of the time.
