The Worst Restaurant Company

Current Employee - Anonymous Employee
Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

I have been working at Tavistock Restaurants

Pros

Food, location, tips. However, the few pros are far outweighed by the numerous cons of this company.

Cons

All the bad reviews for this company are all accurate. Tavistock is the worst restaurant company. It is so incredibly behind its competition. The standards that have been commonplace at other restaurants for decades are not practiced here. It is the lowest employee morale and everyone wants to quit. Some of the many reasons why:

— No growth opportunities, no raises, and no promotions.

— Tyrannical management style. Employees are yelled at and harassed daily.

— Management not properly trained in dealing with people, employees and customers.

— Payroll checks regularly shorted; employees have to fight for pay for hours already worked.

— Two weeks notice not honored; those who quit told to leave immediately without pay.

— No work-life balance. They want you to be married to your job and are blatantly hostile to employees with families.

— Excessively high turnover rate. They are constantly advertising for new employees at every level. Positions are unfilled for months so skeleton crews have to do the work of 2 or 3 people with no bump in pay.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep up with the times and do some research about what every other restaurant company is doing today to retain employees and comply with current labor laws. You need serious updating and overhauling of your systems and upper management training. The word is out about your company and the quality people you need will not even consider you as a serious employment option.

    I worked at Tavistock Restaurants

    Pros

    -Location was convenient for commute
    -Fantastic Manager

    Cons

    -Company does not care about its employees/ no respect for the work that is done
    -Minimal benefits
    -Company culture is equivalent to a jail without food or outdoor time.
    -No room to grow/advance
    -Everyone lives in fear of upper management
    -Very politically driven and intense office politics

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give your employees the respect they deserve. Actually invest in them and be thankful for the job they are doing. Change is a good thing and its time to let go of the old ways and embrace new ideas. New ideas like: regular catered lunches, gym memberships, team activities, off-site volunteer events. Happy employees do better work.

    I worked at Tavistock Restaurants full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Nothing positive about the company; as a result, they deserve zero star

    Cons

    The CEO's attitude is "I give you a job. If you don't like it, that's the door." The benefits SUCKS. Long hours with no compensation. Has the highest turnover rate ever in the history of corporate America as long as I'm concern.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get trained and learn how to appreciate your employees
