    I have been working at The Meat House full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Free Meals, training, co workers, customers

    Cons

    unclear policies, gossip, favoritism, unfairness

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communication is extremely lacking. Management needs to get on board with each other and then clue the employees in.

    I worked at The Meat House full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    New concept in my state. was excited to help open the franchise.

    Cons

    After being courted by them for 9 months I left a job to take a position as a general manager. The plan was to spend 8-10 weeks "training" in NH. I have over 25 years in the business. This seemed excessive. The training consisted of working 12 - 16 hour shifts in their training store. I received all glowing remarks from the store manager at the location. 3 weeks into my training I was released because I was told I did not exhibit the traits of "the successful meat house manager"??? I truly believe it was because of my age even though I kept up with other trainees much younger than myself.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Re-evaluate your recruiting, training procedures and please revamp your team of trainers. They are not affective at their job.

    Pros

    You will learn a lot about the products. Customers do love it so you won't hear many complaints...other than the prices? The two owners, Justin and Jason, are very nice.

    Cons

    You put your blood, sweet an tears into working hard for them but they are quick to chop down your hours or cut you all together. Besides the owners, the rest of management are cocky jerks.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Why do you have to make 50 percent margin on everything? Try $9.99 for the tips and you will sell a lot more! How have you not figured this out?

    I worked at The Meat House

    Pros

    Laid back atmosphere, pay was decent. Good discount if you're willing to eat the food.

    Cons

    Too laid back. Cleanliness does not seem to be a priority. I am surprised employees aren't getting sick let alone customers. Meat is supposed to be rotated but not enough attention is placed on labeling. I would not purchase from them after working there.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Practice what you preach. Hold all stores accountable for standards.

    Pros

    Not a bad place to learn a new thing or 2

    Cons

    Store managers egos are ridiculous. Theyre always right, even when theyre wrong.

    Pay is mediocre at best

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Your concept is great. Hire decent people, not kids who dont know what theyre doing.
    Oh, but wait, people who know what theyre doing expect to get paid.

    I have been working at The Meat House

    Pros

    Work hard, meatify harder here at The Meat House. A 100% investment in The Meat House is essential to a successful career here.

    Cons

    It's a very busy lifestyle and sometimes supervisors forget to check in. Though, often they solicit feedback and are open to suggestions for improvement.
