    I worked at The Meat House part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The product really is a great one, the steak tips are unbelievable and you don't have to feel guilty promoting it to your customers.

    Cons

    Management was clueless. I worked here for 2 years and was one of the best employees, yet was treated horribly.

    Advice to Management

    Don't play favorites or treat your employees like scum

    I worked at The Meat House full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Large company with local roots, good reputation initially. Fun atmosphere.

    Cons

    The original owners Justin & Jason drove it into the ground (the corporate locations anyway.) Didn't pay vendors on time. When it closed, dozens of employees had bounced checks. Lied another status of company. Just terrible.

    Advice to Management

    Sickening that they've never issues an apology to their customers, vendors, franchisees, charities...

    Pros

    Great Coworkers, no late hours

    Cons

    Absolutely no benefits, Manager blames employees for faults in his personal life, makes a lot of threats, blames employees for other employees mistakes, no breaks and sometimes very long hours.

    Advice to Management

    Positive treatments of employees works better than frightening and threatening them. Allow employees lunch breaks or reinstate free meals. Benefits would be nice.

    I worked at The Meat House part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Managers and staff were all welcoming and friendly. The general vibe of the store is upbeat and very positive. Employees are excited to go to work.

    Cons

    Roles are pretty set in place. There aren't many opportunities to move around to different areas. Sometimes it's hard to get hours.

    Advice to Management

    Schedule employees based on seniority, allow for older employees to work with and train new employees.
