    Sometimes on any given day the workload could be a little less demanding A pat on the back or some kind words to the staff for the day would go a long way.

    Pros

    The benefits and hours are fantastic ! That is about the only good things I can think of why to work for this company.

    Cons

    Management needs more training on how to treat people with respect and how to properly run a kitchen. Favoritism should not be allowed and fairness should. Upper management should listen to the employees voices when you are on your 4th manager in 1 year and the site is still not running properly.

    Advice to Management

    This is not a tv show and you are not A famous chef. Treat people with respect and equality.
