    Pros

    Regular schedule (mon-fri), holidays and weekends off. A lot of autonomy from the Corporate Office

    Cons

    Little assistance and support from Corporate Office especially when dealing with hourly employee discipline issues. Rules for PTO are quite strict and inflexible

    Advice to Management

    Have more intereaction with managers between units to work together and share experience and resources

    Pros

    Hours: Mon-Fri daytime food service job. Off holidays, and most night/weekends.
    Has benefits and 401k.

    Cons

    Very corporate: moves slowly. Onboarding new employees, reimbursing employees, responding to innovation (if at all), and more all took forever.
    There are no safety accidents ever. The manager will always be at fault.

    Advice to Management

    Respond better to change and innovation.
    Reward those that are doing a great job more often.

  6. Great company with the right values!

    Pros

    Great hours, good pay and benefits, great people on each side of the counter. Lots of opportunity.

    Cons

    Lots of work witb not enough people....but that seems to be everywhere.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of Esop and give 401K match...allow employees to buy extra PTO time.

  7. Lazy are rewarded and not disciplined while hard workers are harassed.

    Pros

    Mon thru Fri Schedule/Able to get time off when needed/ Clean work environment/Good food

    Cons

    General feeling of dislike from my manager. I am proud of the food I produce and am constantly being harassed. It's affecting my attitude and morale. Maybe if I get lazy, quit caring and play around all day I'll be respected. I do not feel guilty when I get my paycheck but others should. The double standard is so blatant. I could go on for days. I wish I knew the legal avenues I could pursue.
    P.S. I have no time for a break and most of the time barely make it to the bathroom. When I do get a break I seem to get in trouble for something or a new job duty added on.

    Advice to Management

    Practice more equality and distribute jobs moe evenly. Quit picking on your good employees and discipline those who really need it.

    Pros

    M-F schedule.Great front line employees.

    Cons

    Management, no training, standards, communication. Fresh and sustainable is inaccurate at best. They try to maintain their high quality standards which is funny because its literally a cafeteria. Stouffers frozen food ? Almost forgot, management sharing confidential information with their own direct reports .

    Advice to Management

    Corporate needs more than a 30,000 ft snapshot of these units. Its no shock this company is losing accounts. If corporate actually saw how their unit management operated acurately the would roll over in their graves.

  9. Lack of organization
