    I worked at Restaurant Depot full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The pay was pretty decent but that's about it

    Cons

    Management does not care about you, they are always looking for a reason to fire you in certain departments, also the work culture was just toxic, people were quitting left and right so you had to work overtime and never appreciated for it.

    I worked at Restaurant Depot full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Entry level to start, I learned a lot but I had to fight for every ounce of knowledge I received.

    Cons

    Everything, nearly the worst experience of my life, the fight for progression within the company, the favoritism, the sexism, the discrimination, all of it. It is wasn’t the HR pulling scandals it was the VP hiding things. Don’t do it.

    Pros

    You learn about some really great restaurants

    Cons

    Pay is terrible, management is awful, clicks everywhere you turn, bullying, rude rude rude customers, did I mention how awful the pay and management is? Lift heavy stuff day after day for minimum pay and definitely don’t ever expect a pat on the back for anything.

    Pros

    It can be a good place for entry level, but don't stay too long. You can learn some basic stuff then move on.

    Cons

    Poor management. No clear communication. No clear career path. Unless they really like you, you never gonna go up to management level.

    I have been working at Restaurant Depot full-time

    Pros

    Flexible schedule. Store hours are a DREAM in a retail environment. Closed major holidays (and some not-so-major holidays!). Pay is competitive.6th day pay for salary managers!

    Cons

    very old technology in place for all aspects of operations. Privately owned company that can seem very overbearing at times. Always have executive company.

    I worked at Restaurant Depot full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Working at Restaurant Depot was a fast-paced challenging job. Communication skills are required to communicate with the forklift driver. Continuously an employee needs to maintain their aisle and keep stocking items using a pallet Jack. Overall, the job is fast-paced and requires some self-learning. Due to the fast-environment, you need to attend the requests of customers and stock items continuously with merely 30 mins break times. At the end of the day, a stocker needs to fix all the pallets in your aisle by moving everything to the front and brooming the floors along with removing damaged goods. I worked at the College Point Depot and it was definitely a fun experience to be a stocker.

    Cons

    Some downsides of working at the Restaurant Depot is definitely the workload of carrying 50lbs or more loads continuously and performing several other duties besides stocking. Some days, the management will assign you the responsibilities of 2 or 3 aisles at once, porter, or cashier role. This really helps you become a well-rounded individual, but you will never perform the same duty every day. During working on one aisle, the manager might add on more aisles where other workers did not come to work, or even tell you to go outside and sort the carts in the parking lot. I enjoyed working and pushing myself to work harder and achieve the best results. I just wanted to share my experience with working at College Point to understand the workload and my general experiences. Salary is also minimum wage so one should consider their choices, however hours as a stocker can go above 50 hours a week.
