    Pros

    Fixed M-F schedule, Benefits package is top-notch.

    Cons

    Management training lasts a maximum of 3 days, Upper management sets revenue goals that are highly unreasonable, hourly associates are grossly under-trained and sometimes physically unfit for the work

    Advice to Management

    I get it, profits are good. But not at the expense of the well-being of your employees. When you hire new salaried managers, take the time to train. 10-15 hours of training is NOT enough. Invest in your people, and they'll stick around.

    Cons

    Lack of training, poor management

    Advice to Management

    When you hire a new employee, you should complete their new hire paperwork the first day of work, the employee should not have to keep asking or telling the manager to complete it.

    I have been working at Eurest Dining Services full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good work like balance, holidays, nights and weekends off for foodservice is gold.

    Cons

    Typical corporate, beureaucratic by nature, alot of good intentions but not alot of follow up if it doesnt hit a KPI. Might be unique to region, but been told to work alot of nights and weekends lately. Told, not asked.

    Advice to Management

    Ditch the watered down rhetoric and embrace the high level professionals of your company for what they are and what they can offer.

    I worked at Eurest Dining Services full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good benefits...some of the days are decent with getting the help I need...working for eurest puts a good medal in your resume

    Cons

    Manipulation and drama are encouraged in order to "motivate" workers...pays not worth the workload...to many people call out or take vacations....the jobs sustanable with a full crew but 80% of the time there is one or two people out( Probably from being over worked)...Sold close to a hundred breakfast sandwiches a day alongside 40-50 omlettes...it's too much for one person to sustain over a long period of time and the menus huge with having options that are rarely ordered but stressful when they are_ get rid of them)...I get the help I need when everyone was present but that was rare..want home way to tired some days just from pulling off the impossible...would do 85 sandwiches, 40 omlettes(62 orders) while prepping for lunch, with maybe an hour of lazy help...my blood pressure was threw the roof. Its so bad for someone to maintain that level of energy throughout the whole day..luckily I found a new job quick and only had to endure it for a couple months

    Advice to Management

    Hire people to cover sick calls and vacations...don't be overly greedy...it's not worth the stress on you or your employees

    Also, trim down the menu a bit...streamline it a little more...if your only getting one order a week on a particular item it's best to 86 it rather than have it be another liability..you don't need 3 different types of burger buns lol

    And....wool tweed hats for grill cooks? It hit in front of that grill...it makes me sweat which is pretty off putting to customers...this is why I don't like when people who don't cook make the rules

    Advice to Management

    Management should not promise something that they can not follow through with
