Private Dining Coordinator is great for no job skills but not a career path.

I worked at McCormick & Schmick's full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

Little to none supervision or management training enables workers to seem faultless.

Cons

Little to none supervision or management training creates a stagnant workforce and mediocre attitude which inhibits ambition and caused the company to decline into a hostile takeover by Landry's Inc., a profit driven casino ownership.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Proactive leadership requires constant training and coaching of the staff. Do not wait for secret shopper reports to determine the skill level of employees. Interview more and hire less to posses a more competent staff; keeping sub-par employees only hurts the team.

    Pros

    A good lesson in what NOT to do, makes you appreciate what you used to take for granted in other jobs

    Cons

    Shitty food, dirty kitchen, will teach bad cooking/sanitation habits, won't allow you to do your job effectively/earn a living there/hold a second job. Poor scheduling, will often get called off on scheduled days or called in on days off; or often sent home suddenly the instant service slows down without being allowed to clean up or prep for next shift.consequently, will be forced to work with the results of said previous short shift. It's a 7 day a week, on call, part time job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You get what you pay for. If your staff isn't allowed to be there to work, it's not their fault the work isn't done. It's also no coincidence that the people who can get a job elsewhere, do.
