Merciless and completely unsupportive management. No job security for even the most loyal workers.

Former Employee - Takeout/Deliveries in Bellevue, WA (US)

Pros

-Occasionally good tips
- Nice coworkers

Cons

- Management will throw any employee "under the bus" and/or terminate them for any minor reason (if you're not randomly on their good side) without any counseling or correction first.
- Unreasonable work conditions due to firing people without hiring/cross training additional employees to fill the positions.
- Cannot speak your mind/voice reasonable opinions without repercussions.
- Management (as well as the employee New Hire booklet) is unknowledgeable of employee rights and laws.
- Empty promises of cross-training and promotions, cannot ask for any without getting shot down with no explanation. Only put where they want you without given the chance to prove yourself in other areas they still need someone.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Try supporting your employees for once. At least give them a chance instead of always siding with every dissatisfied customer you encounter.

    Former Employee - Bartender  in  Denver, CO (US)
    Former Employee - Bartender in Denver, CO (US)

    Pros

    I don't have to work there anymore

    Cons

    New upper management are the same people that destroyed Macaroni Grill (when was the last time yo ate there?)
    All grills have been taken out (it still says grill above the door though... not too honest) and replaced with infared convection microwaves. But staff is trained to LIE to guests about this...SHADY!!!
    Tenured employees are shown the door because they want to "change the culture" every six months
    Bartenders are required to WATERDOWN drinks!!!!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Go back to fast food where you belong!
