    Le Duff America bought it and changed everything that was good about mimis cafe. Scheduling is based on whether you can get customers to do a survey.

    This company is Great for development, very educational, great for growth and gives room to grow within the company, internal promotion, benefits, vacation time, bonuses.

    I worked at Mimi's Cafe part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Hired immediately, lots of hours, pretty flexible, got to take home food when I was training

    Cons

    Too corporate, felt like another number. Always had to list off like a million 'specials', and that wasn't about food.

    Advice to Management

    I don't really have any advise to give to management. They were pretty good managers.

    Pros

    There are none to mention

    Cons

    To much work for no pay and no bonus. Worked here for over 2 years not one bonus. Managers always Quit. No help from the director of operations. In realistic labor goals......not a gn your the dishwasher cook and host all at the same time.

    Advice to Management

    Get it together. Fire the managers sleeping with staff and coming in drunk. Hire more people.
