This is a family owned and operated company. Jobs for family members are top priority.

I worked at Whitsons Culinary Group

Pros

Most of the executive officers are kind and generous, and they try to instill a sense of team spirit.

Cons

If you are not a family member then you have no job security. The bottom line is profit for them, not for nonrelatives.

    I have been working at Whitsons Culinary Group

    Pros

    The CEO is actually a good, caring man.

    Cons

    Too many to mention. Here are a few:
    1) Uneducated, unscrupulous, outrageously unprofessional and unethical workers.
    2) So many assignments given at once in such a disorganized, uninformed fashion from so many different chiefs that one is doomed to fail, even if they sleep there!
    3) Customers one has to deal with are just as ridiculous as co-workers.
    4) Pathetic compensation for work expected, both in amount and quality and technicality. No upward mobility.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    1) There were or are quite a few people to fire because of outrageously unprofessional behavior and incompetence! 2) Learn to do some research before taking on a project to avoid having to correct dozens of mistake later on! 3) At least try to be aware of the fact that people involved in projects have other things to do (that you assign as well) and in order for them to do things timely and properly, they need to be given enough time to do so! Giving someone who has a dozen other assignments another assignment and saying, "I needed it last week," shows disorganization, laziness, and disrespect.

    I worked at Whitsons Culinary Group full-time for more than a year

    Cons

    The lack of professionalism at whitsons can be noticed across the company (with very few exceptions). The nepotism and favoritism is at its best, if you are a Whitcomb, married or somehow related to them is for sure that you would be managing a department or be promoted in no time.
    As the previous review mentioned management is very uneducated, that you end up wondering how come they get to their positions....once again the answer is nepotism. And the uneducated management is the cause of that the smart, professional personnel leaves or get forced to leave. Most of the management that stays in whitsons is because they know wouldn't be able to retain a job in any other company.
    Whitsons Is the place that you can get fire because you came late one day due to an emergency but they won't fire someone that steals from a manager (even when caught on camera).
    PS. Human resources they are just clueless

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get educated, street smart won't take anyone a long in a professional career environment
