    Pros

    The only pros at this company is that if you are in their click you can get away with things that are just not tolerable in any company.

    Cons

    Downsides are you don't get any respect as a human being that has any intelligence of any kind and you are talked down to as if you are stupid.

    Advice to Management

    Learn how to respect your employees and pay them accordingly no matter what their race is. Stop taking advantage of people for your personal gain.

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at The Sidebar (Saint Louis, MO) in October 2008.

    Interview

    I was hired from a prestigious restaurant to fix the issues and problems at their other restaurant which is a downtown eatery for the office type and a place for them to come in the evenings to relax and enjoy themselves.
    The actual owner, never saw me.

    Interview Questions

    • There wasn't any type of questions except one: "Can you do the job"?   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    I can start you at....and once I see you can do what I need, then and only then will I give you that raise. I literally felt as if I was being sized up because I am not Caucasian nor am I African American, and to top it off, I am a female. I was being looked at like I could be run over easily by anyone. Once hired my first check was incorrect and I pointed it out to the manager. I was talk to like a piece of crap. "What makes you so special? Why do you think you should get that type of pay here? No one get that type of pay and no one ever has working here"! My response was: :Because I have the experience and can do my job very well, and just because no one else has received that type of pay doesn't mean I should receive less".
