Good Food, Good Fun

Associate (Former Employee) San Francisco, CA

ProsFor a restaurant, the food is actually pretty healthy. I took advantage of the discount and the rejected orders! The other employees were fun and the work environment was enjoyable. It was fast-paced because we did get very busy, especially during lunch, but I enjoyed the excitement.

ConsThey should take advantage of technology more. For instance, the schedule was only posted in the restaurant so I had to physically go there or call and bother someone to tell me my schedule. It was also usually posted last-minute, the day before it was in effect.

Advice to Senior ManagementManagers didn't always agree on procedures. There should be a manual that determines "the right way" to eliminate confusion.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
