    Pros

    They work easily around schedules and summers and holidays off. Start at $8.25.

    I worked at Bon Appétit Management full-time

    Pros

    Easy to do, time passes when working, with chances to network when available. But that depends on you. The more devoted, the more opportunities.....

    Cons

    Management treats workers horribly, schemes easily to get people they deem obstacles in their inhumane agendas either fired, or laid off indefinitely, ultra-nepotism, given 29-32 hours a week, very expendable, and management practices borderline illegal tactics to undercut an employee's wages, saving more money and gaining them more praise from their superiors. Finally, with three types of employed non-managerial staff (cooks, utility, and cashiers/shopkeepers), the cashier position is erratic, with absolutely no coverage like that which support cooks, improper procedures in mgmt handling non-kitchen employees' shifts, and too many turnovers in management to keep morals high and productivity at an adequate level.

    Advice to Management

    Increase wages, find better management (people who won't compromise others to secure their own position), and actually talk to your employees. It is supposed to be a job that can help employees, not treat them like indentured slaves, modern slavery style.
