    Pros

    Jason's Deli gives you the opportunity to learn new skills that can and will help you further yourself in daily life skills and needs.Given proper training and dedication from employee you can make great progress in the hospitality field and beyond.

    Cons

    Jason's Deli is a very professional work place however their been cases in which the management team will fail to see the needs of their employees, because they are mainly concern solely on the production of the food service out put. And that failure to notice their employees needs can sometimes affect the very thing they are mostly concern of their production out put. Besides that Jason's Deli is a well mannered work place.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue giving chances to those who are unfortunate because the unfortunate will appreciate it as they are in need. Their employment helps not only them but the community which in term helps Jason's Deli corp.

    Pros

    The people and atmosphere is very relaxing. The pay is ok if you get in good with management

    Cons

    No work life balance, a little racial issues, overheard management saying 3 black managers was enough. There are 4 local Jasons Deli with only 3 black managers, 6 Latinos, and 14 white.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay attention to employees needs, don't be so mean, value people's work life balance

    Pros

    They train you as best as they can for the position you are in, free drinks, 25% discount even when you do not work that day.

    Cons

    The managers would be the most pain in the but part of the job, no one will answer questions. Employees that are hired has no passion or willingness to move forward.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Care more about the people who work you, they are not mindless robots and have family to take care of.

    Pros

    They have very flexible scheduling and were very patient when it came to training new employees on the myriad of food options they have available.

    Cons

    Very difficult to obtain enough hours to receive a decent paycheck. There were often occasional large breaks in communications between the store managers resulting in much confusion for the employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Managers should take more time to communicate among themselves. In addition, "less is more" is not always untrue, having a couple less employees in order to ensure adequate hours for everyone would go a long way.

    Pros

    Great Food, great customer base, fast paced, hands on, opportunities to advance are based on performance. Learn the business and you will can succeed fast.

    Food Safety and practices

    Cons

    Hours, we have just increased our average work hours to 52 and only get paid for 50. However, most of us work 60 or more. When hired, I was told the average is 48. Sick days, what are those? If you need a day off, you make the time up. We are suppose to be off on 5 Holidays. Not if that Holiday falls on the last day of the month. GM's and 1A's have to come in to do full inventory.

    Underpaid manager salaries. Retention of quality managers is difficult because of the pay and hours. Shifts do not allow for a full 8 hours of sleep, and family time.

    We are expected to work an AOR which is Area of Responsibility, and it fails to mention a break off your feet and eat a meal during an 11 hour shift. This job is demanding of your personal life if you want to get promoted. I am not over weight and in my 30's. The physical demands of working in this restaurant is hard on your body.

    Performance is based on surveys. Unrealistic results.

    Corporate Structure of Payroll and Accounting is very unorganized.

    Schedule writing takes almost a whole shift from a manager. (takes them out of the store) Inefficient system in place

    Employee turnover is outrageous. It goes to show we need to start getting back to our people.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Too many changes too fast. Corporate Standardization has been a nuisance. They need to understand to run their idea labor, you can't have every position filled. These Position evaluation audits leave no room for employee call outs or managers running positions because of staffing issues.

    Its hard to keep a happy staff when they are only scheduled for 3 hour shifts. This is causing a high turnover in our stores. We now have a hiring needs template to update on top of the 5 other google docs we are required to update daily. Get back to your people, listen and make changes to improve employee morale.

    Tasks on top of tasks is overwhelming and exhausting. Remember the days with out cell phones? Get back to the basics and quit trying to implement more clip boards and spreadsheets to manage.
