    Worked hard, great learning experience

    Bread Baker (Current Employee) New York, NY

    ProsGreat training, decent hours for bread baking, lots of different breads, fast paced. Resume and skill builder. Benefits are decent.

    ConsCulture of a French kitchen can be a little rough and impatient. Training is not necessarily in English: learn by watching but pressure is on to be very fast.

    Advice to Senior ManagementOnly one week of vacation time after a year of service is very low for a fast-paced, very physical job.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Not a woman friendly kitchen environment

    Chef De Partie (Former Employee) New York, NY

    ProsBeautiful food concepts, but a menu undeserving of the boloud name

    ConsInexperienced chefs on power trips

    Advice to Senior ManagementNeed adults running the kitchens not boys.

    Great experience for an intern

    Pastry Intern (Former Employee) New York, NY

    ProsWorking with amazing chefs, and a team of fun but serious workers who all have very positive attitudes. Had the opportunity to attend NYC F&B event while assisting the pastry chef (I was in Pastry). Really good experience. I was an intern back then.

    ConsThere really isn't any I can think of. The restaurant is really busy so prepare to work a lot (with lots of passion too ;)).

    Great management, fun place to work, average money

    Server (Current Employee) New York, NY

    ProsI cant speak for the other restaurants, but the one I work at has an amazing boss. Smart and outstanding at his job, but also very cool on a personal level. Insurance is a rarity in serving jobs so that is a big plus. The people and the insurance are the reason I've stayed as long as I have.

    ConsThe money is below what you would expect. Too many hands in the cookie jar. My experience in NYC is the typical tipout (to bussers/runners/bar) is 40-45%. Here with "managers" (sommeliers, matire d, etc), we tip out around 65%. Making $500 in tips a night but only actually getting to keep $150 is very frustrating.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGive "managers" a salary so servers don't have to share their money. Other than that, no complaints!
