District Relief Manager

District Relief Manager (Former Employee)
Nashville, TN

ProsGood customers. Pay bonus good if ambitious. Streamline and overall guidelines. Often made more than pay grade above me.

ConsLong hours. Rampant theft and drug usage from management to employees.Constant, childish drama. Excessive gossiping and cell phone usage.

Advice to Senior ManagementUpper management needs to get their heads in the game. Focus on the immediate business at hand and behave professionally; do not interrupt with a personal vendetta. Entering stores at peak business hours, just calmly jump in and help where you see weaknesses. Do not come in shouting at your workers or trying to rudely 'correct' them when they're busy taking care of customers....deal with those issues at the right times. Stop rehiring the nonproductive ones who steal, come in doped up, and spend their time on the cell phone. Stop wasting dollars trying to save pennies. Don't let managers hand out keys to office and commissary like candy. When investigating incidents and write-ups do so professionally and do not tolerate write-ups either forged by managers, based upon hearsay and do not engage in romance w/employees at work. Don't dabble or hesitate when it comes to firing nonproductive, unruly employees. Stay with the experienced and positive honest ones who are not there to play games and have a loyal customer base. Don't let employees smoke up the front door. And do not let your grill operators wait on tables and cook at same time. Reimplement the Master Grill operator program as incentive to cooks.And stop encouraging employees to work off the clock. Consider experience when hiring and do not move salespeople and grill operators around to boost sales at lower productive stores..

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
