Runner/Server (Current Employee) – Portland, OR 97219 – May 19, 2016
I would say that this is a rather good place to work, the staff and managers are all really fun to work with and get along and respect each other for the most part. I enjoy working here because you get to interact with students and other people of all backgrounds and it is always fascinating to learn random new facts about the countries and towns these people come from. The hardest part of the job is making sure that everybody is on the same page and communicating properly, sometimes disconnect can happen and it can get frustrating. The best part of the job is the people I work with, they always make me laugh and put me in a good mood when I do get overwhelmed at times.
Free meals when on-duty, understanding co-workers and managers, flexible to your schedule, energetic and fun workplace
tiring, takes patience, understaffed at times, overwhelming
I only worked here because I needed the money at the time. they tell you that you can get hours if your dedicated enough, but then you find yourself being cheated of hours when the college breaks kick in.

Cook (Former Employee) – Cleveland, OH – November 15, 2015
I did the same thing every day, there was not much creativity, things that I learn, was from the mistakes that others made. There were a few cooks that would come to me for advice on how to make sauces and Asian dishes.
There were a few co-workers and chefs I respected but for the most part the others were lazy and just did enough to get by.
General manager and Chef managers looked out for themselves, didn't help other chef or cook when help was needed.
Regional and District Managers hardly came around.
Hardest part about working at Bon Appetit was keep control of my emotions, I had to deal with bad food handling practices, immature adults, supervisors that did not know how to supervise, lazy and slow workers, and not having enough work space, equipment, and staffing.
I asked for a promotion for 4 years, was told when a position opens up. During that time they hired at least 20 new chef managers.
The most enjoyable time I had was when I first started at Bon Appetit, the Chefs then would let me be creative with recipes, when they left it all stopped. The next best thing was the day I left.
Got to work with three excellant Chefs
Management worries about themselves, Pay doesn't match work load or skill level
Dishwasher (Former Employee) – Mountain View, CA – November 6, 2015
A typical day at work is very productive and fun theres never time to be wasting. I learned to work at a consistent pace, and more organized. Management was excellent if you had any concerns they would help you right away. Hardest part of the job was the lifting. Very friendly working environment.

This is a great place to meet new people of diverse backgrounds and built friendship while earning a nice pay. It does require a lot of walking and carrying of plates and glasses but you catch on very quickly.
