    Pros

    I knew nothing about food service when I started, but they trained me on several different aspects of the work.They are fair when promoting workers (always within the company.)

    Cons

    The biggest challenge is the high turnover of employees, I think they could be more choosy with their choices of new hires.

    Pros

    Salary, Benefits reasonable adjustments for home life and good communication within the team.

    Cons

    A very large company of small units kept together by computer. Often main company does not have any understanding of the units it is using and has a one size fits all mentality. Can miss training for other issues.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Advice would be to listen to the units more carefully. Add more training Go back to carrying extra managers to fill in positions.
