What is health insurance like at Nobu Hospitality?

Pros

This review regards the nobu Malibu location. Sometimes the family meal provided is good. Mostly it is disgusting and haphazardly prepared by prep chefs. Training is intense and the job itself will be stressful. If you stick with it over 2 months, you are a part of the team. You will make lifelong friends and will make as much money as a high end server anywhere else, just being a busser. Full time hours required, health insurance, and 401k. No other restaurants in CA offer this. Study hard and always come early. It is looked upon favorably if you do.

Cons

Training period can be tough . This restaurant has a reputation and the Malibu location especially sees many celebrities and CEO’s. If you can’t handle studying, learning, and CRITICISM. This job won’t be for you. Everyone beyond 2 months has shown their willingness to endure and improve. Parking on street. Don’t be late. And don’t be lazy. The money you make is worth studying for.

Advice to Management

Y’all need to instrument a food runner guide more efficiently. Plenty of bussers wanted to study and move up. Leaving it up to older bussers to discover allergen and menu changes while newly hired people receive updated information is ridiculous. Management approves all promotions. If management did more to balance guiding employees while still encouraging them to learn beyond bussing.........they’d have no problem filling wait staff. You can’t intensely drill, criticize, and micromanage every staff member and suddenly leave them to learn by themselves, everything you expect from a runner/server. You need to encourage those promotions as well. This place can also be incredibly confusing. Unfortunately some of our staff will not introduce themselves due to a high new staff turnover. Some of them also act as if training is a goddamn chore. Please speak to staff more seriously regarding treatment of new hires!!!!

Full time hours required, health insurance, and 401k.

How are senior leaders perceived at Nobu Hospitality?

Pros

You don't need to be professionally certified in anything to work in the corporate offices. Loyalty and serious lack of relevant skills will get you far, as it has benefited plenty of staffers. If it is your birthday, you get a cake that you can share with your coworkers which is thoughtful, but after 10 minutes you are whisked away to your lovely uncomfortable chair and your Microsoft 2011 software!

Cons

I am only issuing a one star overall rating because it is the minimum which allows me to post this review. I work at the corporate offices, and anyone who thinks that this is a good place to work is either culturally or socially inept [or lacks serious skills of discernment.] The only positive thing about working here is having enough free time to look for other types of employment. If you are a full-time employee [non management], you cannot work from home in the event of snowstorm; or other related event - which has proven to be financially unstable. There are some hourly employees who are able to work from home, but that is because their managers are lazy and lack policy guidelines. Receiving inconsistent weekly paychecks means nothing if it is always changing. The pay rate is well below what the marketplace is offering, which is more disrespectful than the actual tasks that need to be performed. Family meal is nothing but scraps of food that are put together, but is somewhat necessary because you don't make enough money to actually buy food. There is a serious lack of vision from management which results in working with people who aren't inspired.

Advice to Management

Advice implies that the authoritative power is willing to listen which is untrue in this case. You can be replaced by anyone who is certified to take your spot. Be humble and innovate. There is no reason why HR is threatening employees with termination if someone is suspected of stealing toilet paper from the bathrooms. Pay your employees more!
