Good benefits, incompetent management

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

ProsThe company has some of the best benefits you can get for food service. Depending on your store, you can make a lot of great friends for future networking.

ConsThe company has a problem with placing ineffectual managers into stores. There is a real problem with immaturity and cliques in certain regions...this problem is directly connected to how involved the district manager is with each store. Do your research before applying!

Advice to Senior ManagementIt is very important to make sure your middle management (District Managers) are actually managing their district! Too many rules have been broken due to an apathetic DM in my former district.
