    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.

    They pay pretty good for just being a prep cook.

    Everything is so poorly put together as a team, they expect things to get done last minutes that takes hours to accomplish and they don't care about the people on the ground.

    Get better managers.

    I worked at Guckenheimer full-time

    Pros

    Monday-Friday with weekends off. You may get out early and get some OT if they don’t con you.

    Cons

    Management, coworkers, toxic environment, company does not hold up to moral standards and following through with advancement. HR isn’t any help at all. They will short your check and cut your hours without your knowledge. Lazy employees are awarded more than the hardworking ones. There is a terrible staff member that micro manages and is borderline passive aggressive that makes the work space even more stressful. She’s down your back, while there is not enough people. A lot of favoritism in this account that exceeds to the company in general. The least intimidating and less knowledgeable you are, the higher the chance you will climb the ladder. They are literally crooks!

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the complaints and follow through with making corrections.

    Pros

    The pay is not bad. Very friendly environment and everyone helps each other.

    The normal shift hours for Monday- Thursday are 9 hours and Friday- Sunday it is 10 hours. Your feet will be sore if you are not used to it.

    I have been working at Guckenheimer full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    My two coworkers in my kitchen and my customers are the only things that get me through the day.

    Cons

    The management is horrible! They play favorites on the employees that work in the other kitchen. Some are able to get overtime while the rest of us are forced to have our hours cut. I have to fight every paycheck to actually get compensated for the hours I do work because the managers “forgot” to approve them the right way. And when that happens, they blow it over their shoulder and say they’ll add it to my check. I live paycheck to paycheck seeing how I’m only making $11.30 an hour, I need the money I worked for on the paycheck I’m getting payed for that pay period. I could probably name so much more of what’s wrong with management, but there is so much to tell and not enough time to complain about them. I’ve tried to suggest we change things, and they discuss matters as if I was joking and tell the other employees my business. It’s absolutely horrible working there.

    Advice to Management

    Take a step back and manage by looking at what your employees are actually doing to better your company instead of who you like more personally.

    Pros

    Good pay, hours and food, employees aren't bad

    Cons

    Everything else you can imagine, managers are terrible only interested in
    How they can pass their work onto others. They do play favorites and if you aren't one of them be careful. The employees who you serve are somewhat friendly. But are like children in a day care they leave messes, dishes in the sink, constantly ask questions not pertaining to your job such as "when will the cherios be brought back"

    Advice to Management

    You already know what to do you just don't do it. This Company just needs new managers
