I have been working at Shari's Restaurants full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Potential for advancement and growth for all employees. Many of our corporate officers started their careers with Sharis as cooks or servers. Sharis has many managers and employees that have been with the company for 20 or 30 years, and that is quite an accomplishment in any business or industry.

Cons

Many people flock to the Food and Beverage industry for many reasons, but few seemed prepared for how difficult life in F&B can really be. Many in today's labor force lack the competitive edge and intestinal fortitude to handle how stressful the industry can be. But, those who rise to meet challenges and thrive in adversity can build a long lasting and rewarding career both personally and financially.

Advice to Management

Timely communication to the field employees. Keep middle management in the loop more when it comes to potential growth or advancement opportunities.

    Pros

    Crew is great to work with and hard working.

    Cons

    Not enough employee recognition. Under staffed and upper management contradicts it's self almost all of the time. Promises advancement and then does not deliver. Very high turn over rate. Only part time hours available for majority of crew. Corporate seems to forget who really makes their paychecks.

    Advice to Management

    Better crew incentives and recognition is a must. Get everyone in management on the same page.

    Pros

    It is easy to move up within the company without having a lot of experience or education. The company has its own training programs that are very thorough and prepares you for a job with more responsibility. Also, the menu is great for this segment, they use a lot of fresh and interesting products, pie is great. Managers are very helpful, they actually work with you and help when it is busy.

    Cons

    There are a lot of changes to the menu, constant flow of new things. Business fluctuates so your hours go up and down.

    Advice to Management

    Keep working on the menu and your training programs.
