    I have been working at Restaurant Depot full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    If you are willing to put in the time and effort, only the sky is the limit. Seems today most people have forgotten what it takes to get somewhere. Everyone wants to just be handed something for nothing. I worked hard to get everything I have ever received from Restaursnt Depot and in return they have taken good care of me.

    Cons

    There is some disconnect between the buying office and the stores. But in the end we all work together as a team.

    Advice to Management

    Be sure to show appreciation for the good things that happen in the stores and not poi t out the negative things all the time. It's ok to say good job just as often and employees will respond much better to positivity.

    I have been working at Restaurant Depot full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    They don't care about overtime, so if you need the extra money on the paycheck you can really rack up the hours. Lots of opportunity for advancement, especially if you are willing to relocate as they are opening several stores every year.

    Cons

    Upper management has been the same for decades, and they are behind the times. Pay raises still have to be approved by your regional VP (who oversees anywhere from 40 - 60 stores), so they can take weeks. Getting reimbursed for travel expenses has taken months. They don't treat their employees very well, and have little concern for their well being outside of work. If you didn't request it off, it doesn't matter how urgent it is, you need to be at work.

    Advice to Management

    Treat employees like human beings.

    Pros

    great hours, the customers who are actually patient

    Cons

    Never off on time
    Upper management thinks its some type of 6 figure job, too arrogant, cash drawers (POS) is beyond out dated
    lots of work place drama
    lots of pervs work there as well
    easy to get fired especially if you stand up for yourself against the managers horrible attitudes

    Advice to Management

    Visit your store in stl and get it together its only thriving because its the only one of its kind in this area
