    I worked at Hale & Hearty part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Free food if you work the closing shift since its thrown out at the end of operating hours.

    Cons

    Low hours
    Lack of growth
    Favoritism
    Lazy coworkers
    Drama
    Terrible management
    Lack of professionalism

    Advice to Management

    Stick to making sure the restaurant is clean and stocked accordingly instead of befriending the employees. Properly compensate and acknowledge the hard workers who strive for excellence. Good workers are forced out for the ones who management are more comfortable with.

    I have been working at Hale & Hearty part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Flexibility for the most part it's fast pace

    Cons

    Unfairness in wage increasing. You can complete all the stations in the timing your supposed to and still won't get a raise. Also Due to the issues in the stores your hours get reflected upon. Which is unfair and sometimes illegal. In the beginning there was a major possibility for growth in the company when we had different management but now everything is at a stand still.

    Pros

    Free small soup , weekends off , able to get a 2nd job , or go to school parttime ,

    Cons

    No hours , horrible pay, little breaks , horrible hire ups in corporate

    Advice to Management

    Need to learn how to get over things , needs better management , needs to make money . Slow and unsuccessful business. This job is part time . They dont believe in giving full time hours . They already had 4 locations closed this year. I wont be surprised if the business goes dead

    Cons

    They will schedule you hours just if they need you, that means some weeks you will work 5 or 25 hours depending how busy is. Too much work for what the pay (customers can tip, but only corporate sees that money). Dirty stores over the counter.

    Advice to Management

    It would be good if the servers would get the tips that customers give.

    I have been working at Hale & Hearty full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Surrounding myself with a group of workers that are willing to teach as much as learn with the ability to stay positive through difficulties.

    Cons

    There are times when the company can become a tad bit unorganized due to production being at a high demand.

    Advice to Management

    My advice would be to create and maintain a safe place to not only work but get the job done.
