I have worked with many clients previously in various insutries including restaurants and understand the demands and needs of the restaurant. He owns a small restaurant with less than 50 employees and has recently acquired this restaurant. This new place is larger than his previous and there will be more expense, as well as an increase in projected sales. I was able to come to an agreement as to the terms of the work I perform and that most of the data entry, payroll and tip report would be done in my office as opposed to the restaurant. He was comfortable in meeting with me and allowing me to work in my office and com to the restaurant biweekly.
I spoke to the employee a few times and documented the conversations. I put the person on a performance plan. However, in the end the actual termination was handled by HR with me sitting in on the process.
I spoke of setting up private meetings with the counter-parties in question. The substance of the question I found troubling. So much so, I must forward to you the suggestion that you pick another potential employer in the stead of Omgeo, Inc.
I designed the tables and columns I would need in a SQL database, and I wrote some pseudocode that would run in a cron job to send out alerts. I also wrote the SQL query to get all alerts that are pending. Once prompted, I added indexes and optimized the query.
