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

    Pros

    You meet interesting people, the benefits were decent and if you are lucky enough to be a managers favorite you don't get crapped on ..as much

    Cons

    Sabotage, poor values, body shaming, insults, lies, no home life, favoritism, blatant abuse of power, management will INSTRUCT YOU to do something that violates company policy then when its discovered they act like they had no idea and fire you. Senior Management will protect themselves rather than properly train employees or properly manage employees. Senior Management makes the most derogatory remarks about customers...

    I worked at Restaurant Depot full-time

    Pros

    The pay is atleast average.

    Cons

    By far the worst work environment I’ve ever seen. Employees live in constant fear of being fired. Management uses intimidation and fear to get more work out of their employees. Absolutely no training or mentorship simply because they are so severely understaffed. Constant employee turnover is the norm here, and it makes perfect sense once you see how this place operates. Because of the constant turnover the work load...

    Advice to Management

    Try to actually develop a workplace where people want to be. Management’s style (one based on fear) is also outdated and ineffective in today’s economy where people have so many options to work elsewhere.

    I have been working at Restaurant Depot part-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    You get benefits of shopping cheap if you have a big family without a membership.

    Cons

    The pay should be better. They definitely treat you like a number. All fake "we need you" but are quick to fire. Supervisors and managers blame cashiers for everything when most of the time its produce, floor, or supervisors messing up. The one i work at has no intention of hiring a janitor so cashiers clean up and dont get paid enough to clean up poop toilets. They cut hours yet keep posting up jobs for the store when...

    Advice to Management

    Raise the pay for all the work and back breaking we all do to make your store look as great as you want it to be to make sure YOU dont get terminated.

    I have been working at Restaurant Depot full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    I would like to, but cannot seem to dig one up.

    Cons

    This place has no clue what they are doing. With as much money as they bring in, you would think that things would run a little smoother. They expect you to work 18+ hrs a day if you are a manager and you do not get paid for it. Do not work here if you are in a relationship, because it will destroy it. You are just another number to them no matter what position you are in.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more people and respect the people who do all the work for you.

    PAY BETTER...I could go make $17/h at the supermarket down the street..you will acquire better talent to grow your business.
