    I worked at Restaurant Depot full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    There are no Pros to working here, that's why I don't work here anymore.

    Cons

    If you are a woman and you are a Junior Buyer or Buyer, you WON'T get the pay you deserve. When I was still working there and fighting for a fair raise, I was told I would make that much if I did overtime. The whole point is to NOT do overtime. Restaurant Depot is a man's world. If you aren't a man, you will never make it. Additionally, they would rather hire Junior Buyers & Buyers from outside of the company instead of promoting from within.

    Advice to Management

    Start promoting people from within and maybe you won't have such a high turnover rate. Give women the same opportunity as men, instead of low-balling them.

    I worked at Restaurant Depot full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Steady work lots of overtime

    Cons

    Pure he'll, run do not apply, new mgmt are BULLIES, you look at them wrong they write you up or look for other reasons to fire you, very hostile work environment verbal abuse on a daily basis, listening to the manager scream out the F word in his office and hitting the doors with his fist is not a pleasant thing to see and the whole front ends stops and looks at him he just walks out and goes outside, this is not acceptable then you have to tell customers someone is having a bad day very embarrassing I should not have to make excuses for his behavior, if he can't handle the stress of running a store he should not be in this position..

    Advice to Management

    Tear up your list of people you want to fire because they were hired by previous manager, not everyone is corrupt as he was we are innocent in this and are paying the price for his mistakes.. Is your name on the list as well as original manager hired you also or did you forget that..

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

    Pros

    Met a couple genuine coworker

    Cons

    Had to stay after hours schedule to work to restock when i was clearly a receptionist, was sexually harassed and management didn't handle it. Didnt care how hectic the receptionist desk got , management takes one to do cashier due to lines being long, one person cant handle inventory returns customer complaints and memeberships all at one time.

    Advice to Management

    Train/teach everyone about sexual harassment and receptionist should leave after store operation is over and not have a female go throw trash away in the cut in the back of the warehouse

    Pros

    some nice and fun workers

    Cons

    the worst store management I have ever seen, some managers tell you to one thing and others tell you to do another.. They constantly contradict each othe.

    No training, they hardly train you at all, and then when you do something wrong they get you in trouble.

    Some of the workers get high during store hours and managers would ignore it

    Some of the managers would literally be clueless about their own department

    Advice to Management

    Train people better.
