    Pros

    Great schedule if you can do early mornings.
    Weekends and holidays off in food service? Awesome!
    Peers always willing and available to pitch in.

    Cons

    Management is whimsical. Goals and priorities seemed to shift depending on who was in your unit. Staff hiring, retention and discipline always a challenge.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire the right people for the right job.
    Clearly define the achievement of success.

    Former Employee - Chef Manager

    I worked at Eurest Dining Services full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Most weekends off, no late nights, good benefits, discount program, decent pay, good group of associates that we hired, extra training available

    Cons

    Seemed to get lost in the sea of people, very numbers driven, food just below avg, upper management not considerate of your personal time, not a good onboarding process (here's the keys, now hit your numbers)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better training program to get new managers better acclimated

    Pros

    Sad, not too many pros to list. They are desperate to hire new employees due to people constantly quiting. So, if you need a job now...your probably hired on spot!

    Cons

    Horrible pay, lack of structure, no team effort, not enough employees to keep customers happy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire quality workers. It is worth paying more to keep them there as their career choice, not as temporary fill ins.

    Former Employee - Cafe Supervisor, Culinary Supervisor in Saint Louis, MO
    Former Employee - Cafe Supervisor, Culinary Supervisor in Saint Louis, MO

    I worked at Eurest Dining Services

    Pros

    getting two days in a row off.

    Cons

    The management at the St. Louis location has no clue what they are doing. I was hired as the Cafe Supervisor, within a day they said "Oh, were going to have you be the Culinary Supervisor". This was NOT the position I applied for nor was it the position I was hired for. Furthermore, as the Culinary Supervisor, the only thing the had me doing was working as a short-order cook. If I knew this was going to be the job, I never would have applied for this since I am over qualified for a position such as this. I was also told that this was a full-time, 40 hour position; but I did NOT receive 40 hours every week.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fire the management at Wells Fargo Account in St. Louis MO. They have absolutely no idea what they are doing. I have worked in this industry for more than 23 years, and I have NEVER seen this kind of disorganization.

    Pros

    There are no pros. they are terrible.

    Cons

    Management treats their employees like slaves. They are rude, demeaning, and disrespectful. They are unrealistic in their expectations and they lie about the duties of the position you are hired for.

    Pros

    Lots of systems and programs to work with

    Cons

    Managers are too hands on, at all levels. Difficult to manage when you are working positions, just to keep the P & L in line.

    I worked at Eurest Dining Services full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    They have high standards written into the literature, and managers expect quality. Associates are encouraged to "own" their stations, to be personally invested in the food they serve. Online training is also available. Managers are easy to get a hold of.

    Cons

    High standards and quality ONLY exist in their literature. The food is institutional, unhealthy, and often handled improperly. Associates consist of those who will work for as little as possible, so for the most part, they are uneducated, untrained and unmotivated. Managers have no real time left to them for actually managing due to the ever-pressing corporate structure that demands more fudged paperwork then good food.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire and empower quality people.

    Pros

    Eruest has many good qualities such as secure 40 hour schedules, full benefits, and friendly co-workers.

    Cons

    As with any big company there is some disorganization with the management that affects the employees, however we work together to get through an obstacle the best we can.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to listen to the employees when they are the people who are the face of the company. Take their requests on how to improve the work atmosphere.
