Pros

Restaurants Unlimited has other restaurant concepts which are better. Transferring to other restaurants is fairly easy.

Cons

The management turnover is high, and management can be quite unpersonable and cohersive. They are so heavily staffed that you are lucky to work more than 20-25 hours/week, and you are on call a lot. Don't give them full availability... they don't give you more hours for being available 24/7. The menu is decent, but I've had better at more authentic places. The culinary program they have in place is well ran, yet somewhat uninspiring.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Get to know people better. Value your current staff more, and quit treating them like they are indispensable. Reward people that give you full availability, and you will see people be more committed.

    Pros

    You can get some good experience that streches you. The food benefits are great.

    Cons

    Leadership turnover has been an issue at this company. No stable leadership=no forward momentum=reduced sales and revenue. All this leads to a not so nice story at the corporate office. Positions are routinely eliminated creating a distrustful and stressful environment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Secure leadership and a pick a course of action and keep both in place for longer than 2 years.

    Pros

    It can be a good place to work if you have been in the industry for over 30 years and simply do not care about progress. Their management training program is comprehensive and good for entry level managers.

    Cons

    Horrible communication. They (even after 20 years) still operate like a new company. Constantly conflicting information, change simply for the sake of change. Rarely do new ideas or programs seem well thought out. There is a wealth of conflicting information coming from the top down. Like a ship with a broken compass.....

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Your egos were the reason why the company went from the top to the bottom....and your inability to listen is why you are still there.
