    I have been working at United States Beef full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Growth potential, positional training, professional upper management. Great core values

    Cons

    Late working hours not a family friendly schedule. Micro managed with procedures. Training process intense but not complete or followed through. Values are not implemented.

    Advice to Management

    Be clear and honest when recruiting managers. Schedule and working hours. What it means to be side by side manager, Don't say you will have your own store after 12 weeks when there is not one available.

    I worked at United States Beef full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    None that come to mind....

    Cons

    Where to start..... grossly understaffed with little to no assistance (in MANY stores). They will promote an underperforming employee before letting them quit or just to fill a gap. If you want communication go else where because you won't get it here. Open door policy is a joke and retaliation is a guarantee if you do report something...(even though they'll convince you that "doesn't happen there"). The support from upper management is non existent. Their definition of support is to visit a store once every six months and tell you everything that's wrong and leave; not to be seen for another 6+ months. I'll spare you the many more I would like to share....

    Advice to Management

    Open your eyes!! Have some couth about you when dealing with people. These are human beings with thoughts, feelings and mistakes - ironically similar to yours. Consistency should be a priority integrated through personal contact which means placing yourself where the NEED is...Daily...not monthly or yearly. You'll learn so much more by just being PRESENT. I hope you take this advice....

    I worked at United States Beef full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    -Willing to work with your schedule (I was going to college and worked the days I could)
    -Easy job IF you work with people who care about this job
    -Great High School job
    -Love their compass vision, applied it to future employment

    Cons

    -Too much work for little pay
    -Could file a complaint to General Manager or District Leaders about a person or wrong doing and they would not do anything about it. Just give them a write up.
    -Forced to work shorthanded
    -Managers limit 50% meals to one a day or to what you should order when in the handbook discounted meals are described vaguely.
    -About 85% of the Managers were not willing to help/communicate with each other. In many occasions (not to exaggerate ) I picked up their slack because they were either too lazy or not willing to learn how to do their management job right.
    -People are always quitting, be ready to see new faces and work shorthanded

    Advice to Management

    -Stop being afraid to speak up to employees that have anger management issues, besides trying to please their temper, try working on keeping the people that actually enjoy working there because you guys already lost a lot of good people.
    -Not purposely trying to hate on a company that I have worked for several years, but I am able to see many changes that has happened throughout the years and it just keeps on getting worse.

    I have been working at United States Beef full-time

    Pros

    Great benefits package available. Various medical plans to choose from. 5 week training program.

    Cons

    Can be very hectic. Lots to learn and do in short period of time and pay isn't that great for all that is asked and required of you on the job. Getting more than 35 hours not likely.

    Pros

    The benefits are great.

    Overall, coworkers are friendly as are the executive team.

    You don't have to feel like your walking on eggshells.

    Cons

    People can be a little too comfortable with their workplace conversation. Though, I think most people here here are generally OK with the tone and content. In past work experience though, it's just never a good idea to discuss politics or religion AT work. I think there's potential for others to feel uncomfortable, I personally do not.

    Some have complained about lack of flexibility in schedules. I personally haven't experienced this issue.

    Advice to Management

    Overall I think management does a pretty good job. I was really impressed when I joined the team and love that most of them take a personal interest in your well being.

    I have been working at United States Beef part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I received one free meal a shift.

    Cons

    They hire the most lackadaisical employees at the location of my employment. The management are all overpaid, under motivated, and incompetent. This forces the underpaid yet more experienced employees such as my self do most of everyone else's labor which is all fine and dandy until I get in trouble for it.

    Advice to Management

    Quit pushing the good worker out and stop hiring bad ones

    I worked at United States Beef full-time

    Pros

    Flexible hours, you really can move up in the company if you want to, decent enough health benefits, easy work with (slightly) above minimum wage pay

    Cons

    Upper management is a mess, you MUST tolerate rude customers, crew members are viewed and treated as unimportant by ALL management and complaints to upper management (DMs, RMs) about in-store managers are largely ignored

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees with more respect! They run the store, without them you won't be running much of a business. Also treat your lower-level managers fairly unless you want them to quit so you can spend 80 hours a week in the restaurant.

    Pros

    Can potentially advance. If you know the right people and kiss up to them, you will advance.

    Cons

    Almost everything. I've been with them a little over 2 years. The only good thing is the pay (management). There is zero communication unless you speak with corporate. You can speak to your DM, and, if they like you they will handle the problem, if not, like stated in previous posts, they believe their favorite. They do not care about their employees and treat crew with little regard whatsoever. Dollars and more dollars is all they care about. They preach Arbys culture yet they are the ones to shame it.

    Advice to Management

    Go straight to Corporate. Don't waste your time with the pettiness from your DMs unless you can trust them.
