    quality of food & dry goods is on continual downhill as mgmt. changes product to "save money" food is getting worse...didn't realize that was actually possible.

    Advice to Management

    Manage!!!! Do your dang job!!! Stop sitting on your arse talking about employees!! jeez, if it's all about the numbers then FIX your restaurants!! It is surprising how numbers escalate when food is 1) delivered promptly 2) edible 3) nice presentation.

    Pros

    The only pros from this job are some of the people you work with are decent people

    Cons

    Horrible benefits, management does whatever they likes and lets the employees pick up whatever mess they want and made, it is extremely busy and can be really hectic with horrible customers, getting a day off is like pulling teeth and most of the time you are not approved, management does not take employee issues seriously and allows for co-workers to continue to fight and work in hostile work environments.

    Advice to Management

    Just get better management and not just people who are looking for a pay increase...people that ACTUALLY care about their employees and clean the place up. It has a great remodel but the area is tiny and there is constant turnover for employees so they are constantly short staffed which makes for a horrible work environment.
