Great until we went to a privately owned company.

I worked at Pei Wei Asian Diner full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Hours are great for a restaurant.

Cons

Labor and Operating Profit goals are not obtainable anymore. They gave us very aggressive numbers to hit while still giving out Buy one Get one Free coupons to what seemed like every resident in the state. Our comp line was consistently around 10%.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Be realistic. You are going to continue to lose managers if you expect them to do all the work and with no staff or support from corporate. Labor goals are not realistic. Company gets upset with complaints but we can not run effective, smooth shifts with the numbers we are to hit.

    I have been working at Pei Wei Asian Diner part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Management is flexible and understanding, really great communication skills from my managers

    Cons

    Restaurant hours not so great. I average 25-30 hours and I only get two days off

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The whole corporate check-ins bother me because they change things without knowing or caring about the effect it will have on the employees.
