    I have been working at Recipe Unlimited Corporation for more than a year

    Pros

    Cara is a professional and attemptedly well-organized company that runs successful chains of restaurants. There are all the adequate procedures and policies in place for success but ultimately good management determines the outcome of the work environment and employee motivation to positively benefit the company and can vary greatly depending on which location you work in

    Cons

    Hard to be classified as full-time to receive benefits.

    Pros

    Great company with growth opportunities, fun work environment, fantastic people to work with.

    Cons

    some teams are very lean, not allowing for much adjustments should work flow increase.

    Advice to Management

    Keep listening to your associates, they are a valuable resource to your continued success.

    Server/Bartender in Oakville, ON

    I worked at Recipe Unlimited Corporation

    Pros

    Friendly work environment, performance based scheduling, able to make lucrative amount of tips (sometimes over $300 a night) made lasting relationships, time flies, job isn't stressful, flexible schedules, mostly good management, ability to move up. Overall great experience.

    Cons

    Dying brand, head office are jerks but they're only there on occasion, long hours (but the longer you work the more you make). Dont usually get weekends but you get used to it. Standing a lot, a lot of walking and blisters. Pressure to look "like your going to the party, not coming from one".

    Advice to Management

    Dont be lazy, dont be mean and back our decisions (within reason)

    Pros

    fun work environment. Met lots of great.. Provided me with the opportunity to learn about myself and to learn about my colleagues. Had a great tim here

    Cons

    Management could learn a thing or two from people who are ACTUALLY working. Some of the managers were good although most were just there to cut cost and increase their own bonuses.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Recipe Unlimited Corporation

    Pros

    Nice work environment. New office with modern desks.

    Cons

    No real direction. No company vision even if it had one it would not follow it. Poor employee relations. Not an environment that i would say fosters growth or hard work.

    Advice to Management

    They need a new senior management group. The CEO needs to be replaced with someone who realy understands the penny business the company is in. I would go so far to say that the family that owns Cara needs to sell it before there is no book value left.
