    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Eurest full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great for learning from other chefs and using as a step stool

    Cons

    No official training, they will leave you to sink, poor morale, no more incentives, no more holiday turkeys or pies, constant pay rate freezes, always understaffed, poor health and dental, relying on temps too much, no bonuses, and they ride the grey shaded area of the law regarding anything pertaining to breaks, they have the most paperwork and audits out of all the food service companies, training programs are below standard, they love to underbid like sodexho, which leads to overexpectation from clients and pay freezes

    Advice to Management

    Clean up your act, stop blaming your employees for your own problems, stop underbidding, promote morale and growth, your turnover rate is higher now than most chain restaurants

    Pros

    Great Monday - Friday morning schedule. Awesome benefits! Free food and fun environment. If you don’t like hard work and early mornings it’s not for you.

    Cons

    Poor pay compared to similar jobs, but they get you by the great schedule. Needs more and better training. Always seems understaffed. Much to lengthy interview process for hourly positions.

    Advice to Management

    Make an investment in your staff, and management, it will pay off.
