High management turnover, can't get hours, poor wages compared to other restaurants.

Server (Former Employee)
Seattle, WA

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

ConsThe 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 Senior ManagementGet 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.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
