    I worked at Restaurant Depot full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Management was very easy to deal with, they were understanding when it came to needing time off. You can work without being constantly scrutinized. My department worked very well together and created a positive work environment. We were always paid overtime. The people in the office were generally friendly and easy to get along with. The benefits were good, which is becoming harder to get in other companies.

    Cons

    The software used on a daily basis was completely outdated, which made everyday tasks take so much longer than they should. Hours were a little crazy, the day could end at 5pm or 9pm depending on the system and how behind the buyers were.

    Advice to Management

    A new software system would make the work flow much smoother, and could possibly ensure set hours for employees.

    Closing time is 6pm, closed on holidays, every six months you are due for a raise.

    I have been working at Restaurant Depot full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Decent hours, Benefits, Meeting some really great costumers. Unbelievable chances for advancement.

    Cons

    At times the job can be stressful. (But what job can't be)

    **Not enough praise from the Corporate level executives.**

    At times it feels as if I am in Jr. High School with all the gossip, and the rumor mill within the union employees. (and some supervisors)

    Advice to Management

    Store level Senior Management is great, but the Corporate people need to also express praise in those that truly are busting their back side, and not just point out all of the negative aspects of the warehouse. IE This needs to be improved on, but this is fantastic, keep up the good work........

    I worked at Restaurant Depot full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Nice people to work with (except management). Union after 60 days. benefits at no cost, after 90 days through the union.

    Cons

    don't hire anyone over 40, Mistreat and terminate disabled employees, violate health laws by changes expiration dates. It's all good until you become a burden, in anyway to the company, then they will dump you like yesterdays trash.

    Advice to Management

    Stop discriminating and violating federal disability laws, don't discriminate against older applicants based on age, not experience or work ethics, better communications. And for hecks sake, stop back stabbing and lying to your empoyees. Act like professionals, not a bunch of children

    Pros

    You have a potential to make great money if you stay positive and don't let all of the negativity bring you down

    Cons

    There definitely could be a bigger budget to allow for more help. This place is ran on minimal staff. You have a large workload
