I worked at Restaurant Depot full-time
My director was awesome. Allowed a lot of leeway if you were responsible enough for it.
Commission scale was revised, terribly. Co-workers gossip a lot.
Advice to Management
Pay better commissions. Stop allowing employees with no authority, to dictate how others are managed.
I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Restaurant Depot (Houston, TX) in October 2015.
I came in for an interview for cashier and met with the manager, I had to wait while she kept going out of the office, she asked me general interview questions and told me a little bit about the company. She told me they would pay me $9.75, not good, but I needed a job. She asked me if I could pass a drug test and I said yes. She told me she wanted to hire me and even said I will probably start you Monday. She asked me to come back at 1 and have an interview with her boss, I agreed and even skipped the job fair. When I came back at 1 I had to wait again. Finally this manager came in and was a little more in depth. She then offered me a job, she told me I had to buy steel toe shoes and they would reimburse me, she showed me the schedule, and told me to report the next day at 11 am and introduced me to the lady I had to meet with. I was so excited. I cancelled a pending job interview, I went out and bought the shirts and the shoes and was ready. The next day I went in at 11 and went to the lady I was supposed to meet with, and the second lady I interviewed with asked me to go in the office and wait. I went in the office and she came in and told me that she apologized but she did not know they hired someone last week. She said they had a couple of cashiers on suspension and if they got fired she would call me but she was actually kind of rude about it, and I was completely shocked, I wanted to yell and say could you have at least called, but I was just walked away very sad. And very upset that I canceled the other interview.
