    Positive Outlook

    I worked at Tavistock Restaurants full-time (More than 3 years)


    Food and concepts are pretty incredible. The mix of concept allows for freedom on menu and steps of service as opposed to corporate controlled items. Compensation is in line with the industry standard with pretty decent benefits.


    Serious lack of support from upper management, if it doesn't save money and you're not in the inner circle you become a slave to profits. The bonus structure is absurd and their contract reserves the right to take your bonus. There are several issues with payroll.

    Advice to Management

    Start with a better work/life balance and reward employees for achievements.

    Easy Interview


    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Tavistock Restaurants (Emeryville, CA).


    The interview process was fine. Didn't take long, the person who interviewed me was nice, but then they let the wolves loose on you once you get past the nice pretty, interviewer.
