    Good experience just starting in the culinary industry. The chefs were awesome to work with and I learned a lot.

    I have been working at Aladdin Food Management Services (Less than a year)

    Pros

    None that I can think of..

    Cons

    Too many to list...Benefits are too expensive, pay not equitable to workload, and high turnover due to exceptionally low pay.

    Advice to Management

    Don't underbid a job and work the staff into the ground to cut labor cost to make up for your food cost overage.

    I have been working at Aladdin Food Management Services part-time

    Pros

    I enjoy working with my coworkers. I've been working there for four years. Teamwork was the main focus and it made the job easier.

    Cons

    Seems as though management doesn't care about their employees. Poor communication and relationships from management. Pay is low and hours are constantly cut.

    Advice to Management

    When you have employees that go above and beyond, you should show appreciation. When employees feel appreciated, it makes them work harder for you to make a successful company.
