I have been working at La Madeleine part-time (Less than a year)

Pros

The quality of the food is high. There is seldom a dull moment, and the fast pace makes the time fly by.

Cons

I find it bizarre that for a shift of anything less than 8 hours I can assume I will not get even a 5-minute break.

Advice to Management

Show more respect to the employees.

    I worked at La Madeleine part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    La Madeleine was located conveniently, and it was a simple summer job I took to make some extra money to pay for rent.

    Cons

    The time passed by very slowly when it wasn't a typical meal hour. In other words, it was busy at typical breakfast, lunch, and dinner hours, but was painfully slow in between. Also, they usually didn't give me a break to rest my feet or eat.


  2. "Was a decent growing experience in a small box restaurant."

    Pros

    Great if you are starting out as a manger and wish to learn how to maintain and manage daily aspects, not so much if you have experience unless you have little to no ambition

    Cons

    The career path for this company is very short.

    Advice to Management

    I would raise the salary range or share bonus's with your entire management staff to entice long term retention
