Pros
Cons
  • Apparently, friendships between upper management matter more than keeping a well trained staff (in 11 reviews)

  • Senior Management - no training from day one, the training answer "it's on the website" why don't you know (in 5 reviews)

    I have been working at Guckenheimer full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Management cares about success, and good benefits like free meals, free pair of shoes, good employee benefits, and normal work hours (M-F)

    Cons

    Need a little more support from corporate staff. However, regional leadership team in SoCal is top notch. Maybe a little bit more recognition and rewards in order to promote high performers.

    Advice to Management

    Keep communication open, and keep employees engaged.

    I worked at Guckenheimer full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Almost no pros for this company if you work in the finance department except they offered breakfast for employees.
    Additionally employees at the corporate office are very nice.

    Cons

    Very little to almost no training.
    There has been a recent change in upper management in the finance department.
    Upper management doesn’t care for its employees.
    No warning signs for employees who aren’t performing to standard, and no improvement plan for employees.
    Little to no potential for upward mobility.
    Upper management is petty and nit picky when offering lunches and dinners to employees in the finance team.
    Extremely out dated, 20 year old accounting system with so much manual work it is difficult for finance team to do real analysis.

    Advice to Management

    Train your employees, and give them more guidance. Create a performance improvement plan to allow employees to have a path way to success. Make sure to offer more on job training.

    I worked at Guckenheimer full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Parking, bathrooms,co workers who had previously worked for Compass grp. Great Rolls Royce employee's who deserve more than what Gubberheimer can deliver.

    Cons

    The training staff was concerned more about visuals than actual production.Completly illiterate on reading and understanding their own menu which I suspect they never prepared or knew the outcome of taste. They did not even know the difference between Dice and Mince. A real hateful bunch. No office worker wants the trots.

    Advice to Management

    When hiring Traveling Chefs make sure they can follow recipes.
