    Pros

    days usually go by pretty fast

    Cons

    you get talked to horribly by management, they have little to no respect for their employees and constantly harass them, and if they really don't like you then you will get it the worst. And not to mention the pay is horrible for the amount of work they want you to do

    Advice to Management

    pay more and give your employees more respect

    Pros

    Hours are good, deli guys usually get out at 7 or 8pm on weekdays, 5 on weekends. Possible room for growth sometimes.

    Cons

    The pay isn’t great, considering that there are better paying jobs that have the same responsibilities. Also some stores have a bit of a sexist vibe towards females. No benefits are given to employees unless in the union.

    Advice to Management

    Have less favoritism, use more logic, and more empathy to all workers both male and female.

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

    Pros

    Pay, benefits, employees at the stores and other regional managers. Training stores were well prepared for new trainees which was great.

    Cons

    I had high hopes when I started with this company. The training program is 4 months which was nice. I accepted that I would be away from my family for 5 days a week in order the learn the business. I really enjoyed going through each role all the way from front desk to store manager. Integrity, accountability, and trust are very important qualities in upper management, it is lacking in this instance. My training was stopped short and I was expected to know the ins and outs of my role in three months. I was thrown under the bus for an employee matter that was to be handled by upper management. Micro-managed to the extreme, example is calling every time I entered and left a store. Phone conversations where I was belittled, cursed at, and called names. Every store visit was demoralizing, no coaching and working collaboratively to fix the problems. I’ve been in this industry for 30 years and this has been the worst experience in my career.

    Advice to Management

    Be up front in the interview process. What I was sold and what the role was are extremely different. Especially the work/life balance. You should never be told “work is more important than your family at any company.” This company could be a great place to work. You need to be willing to coach and mentor your staff. You are spending thousands of dollars a year in expense costs given the turnover within the company at the store and regional level. Imagine if you spent that money coaching and mentoring the staff you already have to ensure you have engaged employees working towards your mission.

    Pros

    Money, health insurance, woo hoo

    Cons

    Long hours, no life, people always trying to get you fired, no help, revolving door business, management sucks and the ones who care transfer out because the job sucks. Self entitled owners who expect the world of you. HR in the stores who don't do anything try to befriend you so they can slip you up if you call out and poke around your private business.

    Advice to Management

    Understand when you actually have good employees and don't run them into the ground. Stop being manipulative little dicks and making the place feel like high school! Stop playing favorites, and consistently trying to fire the ones you for some reason just don't like. Understand that without your employees your stupid self wouldn't have a job!!!
