Most frustrating job I've ever held

Server (Current Employee) Portland, OR

ProsThe company attracts and hires people of good heart. Good benefits, if you are able to go your first year without insurance, cool historical buildings to work in

ConsThe brothers and GM's are all about cutting, cutting and more cutting of labor and have no interest in hearing from employees any suggestions for improvements or their frustrations. Mike has made it very clear to his GM's that he has no interest in hearing about problems associated with implementation of new policies he comes up with. Long term employees have learned to just numb themselves to the daily frustrations

Advice to Senior ManagementYour employees really do want to do a good job for you, but the attitude that employees are at best a pain in the ***** and at worst, virtually an enemy to be dealt with as little as possible other than being told to "we don't want to hear it, just do your job", turnover has noticeably increased over the years and morale is pretty sad

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
