    Pros

    The job is a very okay job, hours are good, hours are also flexible! I really enjoy working here.

    Cons

    The only downside to the company is that it's not enough pay for the amount of work you have to do. Also it's no advancement within the company.

    Advice to Management

    The job just needs more advancement. I have been working here for years and still haven't advanced in the company.

    Pros

    Hours are good and boss is great.

    Cons

    Not enough pay for the work performance that you do

    Advice to Management

    25 cent an hour a year is not enough to live on. That is your raise for a year.

    I worked at Southern Foodservice Management full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    None if you work under the wrong regional manager. Okay benefits. Okay salary IF your regional manager recognizes your value. Don't count on that.

    Cons

    Unqualified at regional level. Out of touch at corporate level. Will sweep properly documented and reported issues under the rug.

    Advice to Management

    No advice is deserved.

    Pros

    The food. The work schedule.

    Cons

    A good place to work for but they have Micro-Managing, Nitpicking bosses who don't have a heart or people/leadership skills. So if you can get past that & the low pay that is meant for teenagers 1st job you're ok.

    Advice to Management

    Learn how to push without being pushy. To have a Dream Team you need a Dream Coach.
