Pros

Potential for advancement and growth for all employees. Many of our corporate officers started their careers with Sharis as cooks or servers. Sharis has many managers and employees that have been with the company for 20 or 30 years, and that is quite an accomplishment in any business or industry.

Cons

Many people flock to the Food and Beverage industry for many reasons, but few seemed prepared for how difficult life in F&B can really be. Many in today's labor force lack the competitive edge and intestinal fortitude to handle how stressful the industry can be. But, those who rise to meet challenges and thrive in adversity can build a long lasting and rewarding career both personally and financially.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Timely communication to the field employees. Keep middle management in the loop more when it comes to potential growth or advancement opportunities.

    I have been working at Shari's Restaurants full-time

    Pros

    Advancement opportunity salary guest relations and a great staff. I have always loved working for sharis for the most part.

    Cons

    Upper management Corp office does not support the management teams. They instead make you feel incompetent and unworthy. Low moral, long hours no family time allowed. Being asked to achieve numbers with no labor to use and many programs have needed fixes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Implementation , recognition. Show you're teams that you care about their success not just numbers. Everybody at the corp office needs to be on the same page. Invest in the company for the long run not the now.
