    I have been working at Gourmet Garage full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Decent pay for an hourly grocery store position. Full time hours and benefits. Christmas bonuses for hourly employees. Managers seem to actually care. CEO interviews the hourly candidates and actually talks to employees.

    Cons

    Not many for this kind of work. The only thing I can think of was that a good chunk of the workers knew little english. Kind of a pain but they were still cool guys.

    Pros

    The experience gained is great as well as the coworkers. The products are also wonderful.

    Cons

    They do not appreciate their workers. They give more work upon more work and do not compensate accordingly.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat workers better and on an appropriate level according to amount and quality of work.

    I worked at Gourmet Garage full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    A small company with real goals. Owned and in some instances run by cool laid back people. It can be good to work there. You are bound to make friends.

    Cons

    Owners got too old to see clearly. Some legacy managers hiding around in the corners of that company, sometimes hiding whole huge departments and entire stores with them (:
    Quite a big number of issues seem to always be unresolved, because it just can not, for a campany of such size (not big at all) things should work with more ease.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fire a good bunch of top managers that refuse to work, too lazy or too big on the ego side. Do not ONLY look to hire new managers from outside but rather actually promote loyal to the company people that deserve it and want to do good by you.
