    Pros

    Great Pay, by far one of the best in the industry.

    Cons

    Culture. .. Very very negative environment to say the least. No updated employee book, no current SOPs, no follow ups, no consistency at all. It is a great career jump for someone or a temporary high salary if you care to put up with the frustration that comes with the lack of processes, policies ad inconsistencies.

    Advice to Management

    Do not care care to share any advise.

    I loved it I always got treated with good respect the people where nice and would help you out with anything that came out the dish machine.

    I would say when its time for lunch now they would make you finish all the dishes through the machine before you can go to lunch.

    Advice to Management

    I really don't have know advice for management to be honest.
