I have been working at Bon Appétit Management part-time (Less than a year)

Pros

- Stable hours. You don't have to worry about too much variability in your paycheck, which is good for budgeting.
- Clean and safe environment.
- Not too fast paced most of the time.

Cons

- Benefits at my location were horrible. The only "benefit" was 40% off of a single meal after working 12 hours. When you're not getting too many hours, that benefit leaves a lot to be desired! On top of barely earning above the minimum wage, the benefit is basically negligible.
- Lack of "community" feeling. Upper management has no interest in knowing non full-time employees. I still don't understand how you can't call someone by their name when you have a nametag on!
- Chefs at my location are either nice, or complete jerks (for no reason whatsoever!). You kind of have to learn who to stay away from.

Advice to Management

Be more friendly to the workers! Take five seconds out of your "busy" day spent in the executive office and ask workers how they're doing, if they had a good weekend, etc. Make the working experience a little more enjoyable!

    I have been working at Bon Appétit Management full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    good schedules work mondays to fridays and set hourly schedules. Shut downs on some main holidays.Some times in some cafes almost 2 weeks between christmas and new years some times the time off work great for vacation.

    Cons

    No good pay rates and when needed you have to move around your station to fill in for others. Vacation time is mostly use during the holidays shut downs and not when you really wan to you work all year to get vacation to use it during the shutdown in the holidays.


  2. "Great mission, but execution varies at each account."

    I worked at Bon Appétit Management part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The staff is like a big family. Managers are very approachable and you have the opportunity to wear many different hats. Meals are excellent.

    Cons

    Sometimes the environment is too much like a big family--bickering, gossip, and favoritism can happen. Not to mention the account may be put under immense pressure and have to take some short cuts in terms of sustainability (the company's main mantra).

    Advice to Management

    Make some surprise visits to the east coast accounts, which seem to see a lot less corporate reps.
