    Wouldn't Recommend

    Sep 22, 2022 - General Manager in New York, NY
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Hours Weekends Off Salary is decent but could be more competitive

    Cons

    Unprofessional operation Managers (Constantly feel like we are in Dykman when Ops calls me and others "mama"). Managers allowed to speak in other languages in a group chat (how is everyone supposed to understand?? A new Ops who seems to be on a power trip, one day you're being called my lovely the next day you are treated like you are incredibly stupid in front of others. Outdated systems. Uneducated staff that don't have any kind of conflict managing skills, their first reaction to every customer is to roll their eyes and be rude.

    Toxic Office Culture

    Sep 20, 2022 - Anonymous Employee 
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    - Free Breakfast/Lunch -Team Work - Space and tools to learn new things

    Cons

    Toxic office culture that is going backwards and not forwards. As offices across the world are offering flexible working hours and more time to work at home, WE are being forced into mandatory days in the office ( 3 Days, and 1 must be a Monday or Friday) that we need to write in a tracker. It's insane. Upper management is out of touch with processes and procedures. Decisions are made on a whim and executed by members of the team who are not qualified to do so.

    Former Employee, more than 8 years

    Amazing job and culture. Poor setup for success.

    Sep 12, 2022 - Restaurant General Manager 
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Culture and training program designed to create loyalty and friendship amongst employees within all the shops in one region, and all the shops in the country for managers. High salary with opportunities to earn quarterly bonuses that could reach in the 10k's.

    Cons

    Expectation to achieve work that is physically impossible, in a timeline that, when broken down, is mathematically impossible. Intense pressure leading to breaking codes and regulations is a common occurrence, and those with stronger ethics end up working up to 100 hours/wk.

    Former Employee

    Overall very bad company and fake work ethics

    Sep 28, 2022 - Guest Service Team Member - Cashier 
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    After thinking a long time, I can't find pros.

    Cons

    I would not recommend this place even for my worse enemy! They don't like to pay and very cheap when it comes to rewards. Pay is also late and over time never paid. It's a constant race to finish unrealistic times set and then a race to get your right pay. Absolute horrible company.
