I worked at Pei Wei Asian Diner full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Lots of practice on knife skills, flexible scheduling, easy to work as a second job. I also like everyone I worked with, my managers were good but I feel that they were pressed too hard.

Cons

Too much pressure from corporate, I had one GM that wouldn't let us drink water on the line because "It slows you down" he was so worried about his job I feel like it clouded his jugement

Advice to Management

Very successful company but don't forget about your employees at the bottom.

    I have been working at Pei Wei Asian Diner part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Quick paced environment and room for growth if you're willing to work hard enough.

    Cons

    It is unclear if general managers and floor management receive training in interacting with employees.

    Advice to Management

    Being too "by the book" can hurt the morale of your employees, but also don't be so lax that you're not profesional. Walk the fine line so you're respected.


  2. "Management needs help."
