Pros
  • Some of the best reasons to work here are the discount on food, the people, and they have really good salad (in 3 reviews)

  • You'll get a decent amount of hours, team mates are great, and a whole lot of free food (in 4 reviews)

Cons
  • I feel many of them used it to their advantage (For example, they don't understand take the trash out but they know "can I go home early) (in 4 reviews)

  • Rude customers who often go un-rebuked (in 4 reviews)

    I have been working at La Madeleine full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The cons are that it's our standard Hospitality type restaurant extremely busy a lot of times you deal with the same things that you do with another restaurant, employees not coming to work, Guess that don't tell the truth about their experience ,and it affects your job life or bonus. But that's the nature of the Beast for the job that we want when we choose hospitality all in all LaMadeleine
     is probably one of the better companies to work for.

    Cons

    Proving yourself in a company that has good tenure
    Its tuff when there's a line waiting for the next promotion.

    Advice to Management

    Take your time learning the business there many different software programs being eligible pay attention work well with the other management team because they've been there forever and they know a lot that they can teach you
