Assistant cook (Former Employee), Southampton, MAJuly 15, 2015
Pros: Able to be creative
Cons: Closed to to owner's health
Open for 17 years traditional Italian cooking. Once a worker show initiative to learn and work hard. Then a lot of freedom was allowed to work at own pace to prep all necessary foods for service.

Cook (Former Employee), Angola, INJuly 14, 2015
Pros: Excellent benefits.
Cons: Sometimes not enough hours
Being at the college level, seeing the same faces every day and learning what they liked. The ability to put a face to what they wanted and having it almost ready when they got to the counter was a bonus for both of us.

Cashier (Current Employee), Portland, ORMay 27, 2015
Pros: Free food, satisfaction in the work I did.
Cons: When machines broke down.
When I worked at the Ronler Acres location, I worked the graveyard shift. I was mostly the only Front of House person there, so I did all the restocking, brewing the iced teas and coffee, as well as wiping down counters and working the cash register and espresso machine. At the University of Portland, most of what I did was prepare bagels and sandwiches for the students and faculty.

I learned the importance of teamwork as well as putting the needs of the customers before my own.

Management worked very well to make sure everyone worked together to get the job done. I also got along very well with my co-workers.

The hardest part of the job for me was lifting the heavy crates filled with soda and juice bottles. I was able to do it, but it was the most difficult part of the job.

The part I enjoyed the most about working for Bon Appetit was the people, both co-workers and customers. They were always happy to see me and always told me what an awesome job I was doing.

cashier (Former Employee), St. louis, MOApril 16, 2015
This was my very first job. I liked it overall and gained a lot of work experience from this place. A typical day at work was me helping the supervisor open the shop. Doing inventory and stocking before opening. Once we opened I had to prepare myself to move in a timely manner as far as fixing drinks and completely orders. Working here I learned that hard work does pay off. The hardest part of this job was sometimes moving fast because, I am such a perfectionist and I want to make sure my customer order is perfect. The most enjoyable part was meeting new people, working in different locations of the campus.

Dining and Catering (Current Employee), Easton, PAApril 8, 2015
Pros: free lunches, nice networking, impressive
Cons: too many people have say so
I have been catering since 2006 and when the company changed over to Bon Appetit it was a rough transition . However I must say Bon Appetit is more appealing , tastier, and healthier than any other company I worked for. However the people at my particular work place are hard to get along with. I went to other places to work for the same company and I realized its not the company its the people there. .SOMEWHAT. I must say , the budget is tight. Getting overtime is impossible and another thing that bothered me is that I could not move up to a supervisor title. Instead , a lead.

Baker (Former Employee), Saint Paul, MNMarch 1, 2015
Pros: free lunch
Cons: detatched management, inconsistant enforcement of rules and expectations
The executive chef was very detached, did not know of the inappropriate horsing around taking place in the bakery/wok area of the kitchen or just how much extra food was being eaten while people where in the coolers or dry storage. Rules and expectations were not flat across the board but seems selective as into whom they applied to and when. There has been several on sight accidents requiring medical attention while I was there.

Pros: laid back; easy to do even at the worst rushes
Cons: i cannot think of anything negative about this company
A typical day at work was getting my area ready for the rush (lunch and dinner) for our students. Management and my co-workers were extremely easy to get along with and most of the time, it was laid back and easy to do our job.

Productive workplace with free food.
Dishwasher (Current Employee), Caldwell, IDFebruary 9, 2015
A typical day at work consists of setting up my station, gathering items and dirty dishes to wash, cleaning and organizing, long periods of standing, and continuously busy. The hardest part of the job is making up for the slacking of coworkers and the best part is the free food that is allowed every employee for lunch.
