Employee Review

  1. 1.0
    Former Employee, less than 1 year

    Long hours, stress, overall constant competition

    Pros

    Wage higher than at competitors. Nice uniforms and provided laundry. Free food, paid breaks

    Cons

    As a person from middle Europe, I found the manager's attitude towards me discriminating. I was constantly expected to do a 3-person job. No support. Made up positions with higher salaries given to people who were simply friends with a manager. Keeping scores on a whiteboard to point at the slowest and the fastest from the crew. Manager incompetent, wrong person for this position. Enormous stress associated with mystery-shopper - a crew is kept on their toes around anyone, because of the fear to lose bonus that goes to everyone in the entire restaurant.

    Pros

    Hours Weekends Off Salary is decent but could be more competitive

    Cons

    Unprofessional operation Managers (Constantly feel like we are in Dykman when Ops calls me and others "mama"). Managers allowed to speak in other languages in a group chat (how is everyone supposed to understand?? A new Ops who seems to be on a power trip, one day you're being called my lovely the next day you are treated like you are incredibly stupid in front of others. Outdated systems. Uneducated staff that don't have any kind of conflict managing skills, their first reaction to every customer is to roll their eyes and be rude.
