    I worked at Rutter's full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Rutter's does pay for their training program at corporate level which is nice and thorough. They also are usually very flexible when it comes to hours and days off.

    Cons

    No chance for advancement within the company, no insurance, barely enough hours to live on.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Smarten up! Cutting out insurance and full-time employees leaves you with a high turn-over rate. It also leaves long-term employees like myself with no option but to find another job.

    Rutter's - Deli - New Freedom, PA

    A job in which you work while you have to complete a list of chores that are given to you. I used to work at a restaurant before Rutter's and when I was in the kitchen there were maybe between 4-5 cooks in the kitchen during each shift. At Rutter's depending on the store you work in, you'll have 2-4 (if you're lucky) employees including yourself with you. You have to face rushes that are unpredictable and management that is unorganized and that doesn't take the time to hear the concerns of the grunt workers. You don't get a break during your shift and as a part time worker forget about any benefits that a full timer would receive (not that there are much). Shifts during the weekend evenings and nights become pure insanity since only two people would be around during the whole 8 hours, and if you're a third shift worker on weekends don't expect back up because you'll be by yourself for 8 hours cleaning the deli and parts of the store as well as taking large and numerous orders at random times of the night, dealing with angry and belligerent customers. The only solution totally the issues that workers go through is to increase the amount of workers in the deli and to have managers that understand how to schedule employees wisely to make working during difficult shifts less of a grind for employees.

    I worked at Rutter's

    Pros

    Higher starting pay, free drinks while working, double time during holidays.

    Cons

    Inadequate scheduling, no breaks, small work force.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire more workers for the deli, and train managers so that they can make better decisions when it comes to day by day scheduling. Remember that as a deli worker that it is a fairly demanding job so breaks would not only relieve the workers but also give an incentive to push through the rest of the shift.

    I worked at Rutter's full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    The people that I worked with are now friends and we made work fun. You are paid well for your time.

    Cons

    The management have lost touch with the business that can occur on the floor. You are given way too much to accomplish in one night. There was no positive feedback even when you went above and beyond in your duties.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give positive feedback as well as the negative and talk to the work force more.

    I worked at Rutter's part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Good pay. Easy job. Very basic and if your a kid its perfect for you.

    Cons

    Even when your sick and you work with food you are expected to show or you get written up. Absolutely poor communication between managers. WHEN I WAS IN LABOR I WAS TOLD I HAD NO COVERAGE. I was an excellent employee. Always there never called off and the moment I call off cause I was having a baby it was treated as if I was lying. Good work ethic is not recognized. And my gay co workers were discriminated

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take a look at your managers and how they treat their employees. And actually give disciplinary action when you receive a complaint. I'd rather not have to always hire people that keep somebody just because they have good numbers. If it was the wrong person this was done to you could have had one hell of a lawsuit
