Assistant Manager (Current Employee), Crystal Lake, ILMarch 18, 2014
Pros: 50% employee discount, benefits, opportunity
Cons: short-handed, holidays
Enjoyable if you like to stay busy. Constantly moving and constant work needs to be done. Most shifts are short handed. Work holidays, Thanksgiving, no extra pay. Highly focused on customers and customer service/experience. Company offers many incentives, policies and procedures are constantly changing.

Hourly Shift Manager (Former Employee), Chula Vista, CAMarch 17, 2014
Pros: free lunches, healthcare
Cons: short breaks, managment
Always on your feet, it has always been about who you work with, it can be enjoyable as long as everyone does their job and they are consistent. Management is always a struggling point for this industry you will always have a person with not enough knowledge of their work.

Boston Market was my favorite restaurant job,fun fast paced.
General Manager (Former Employee), Garland, TXMarch 16, 2014
Pros: run great numbers, pass quartely qscs, run budget, getgreattt bonuses!
Cons: didnt have affordable healthcare for the crew.
Boston market was my favorite restaurant job, it was a fun fast paced restaurant especially during the Thanksgiving holiday season. I loved getting in the kitchen with my crew getting catering orders ready to be delivered as well as getting the line ready for customers. I learned how to be a more productive manager and really getting me and my team – more... ready for a busy season, not only for Thanksgiving but each and everyday always an obstacle to make me a stronger manager. I also learned how to listen to the crew and be understanding to problems they may have, but also needed to stand firm on this is a business I'm running. The hardest part of the job is you have to organize your day, if you don't it could be a longggg day!!! You can have over 5 orders going out and 3 is due at the same time! The most enjoyable part is a great days sales, all the customers happy, no issues to report. – less

Good workers: worst place to worker; Manager is no good
Former Employee -- Everything (Former Employee), Lawndale, CAMarch 9, 2014
Cons: unrealiable with hours; disrespectful; favoritism; not customer oriented at all
Long time employees have walked out of this place for a reason. They treat their best employees badly. They hire new employees, give them the hours of long time employees and then cut the hours of long time employees to the point they can't afford to pay for their normal cost of living. If you call and complain you are told by Boston Market that they – more... don't have to give you many hours. They can give you as little as they want. You can tell at a given time they are overstaffed and the long time workers disappear because their hours are cut and they eventually leave because they can't pay the rent on much less than part time hours. They give more hours to new employees not because new employees are cheaper (at least that is a reason). If anything the new people are paid more. Long time employees are treated with disrespect. The manager Gloria is not fair and treats long time employees poorly. She has favortism possibly and is unreliable and can't explain why she treats even good employees like that. – less

opportunity to gain plenty of customer service skills
Cashier (Current Employee), Tallahassee, FLMarch 7, 2014
Work overall is based on teamwork. Without one co-worker present the balance of work can be thrown off. It has been evident that people rely on others, creating an atmosphere that we are all on the same level. Management is okay when dealing with availability, since majority of workers are students. Hardest thing to swallow at work is dealing with customers – more... who expect the world. But do not realize that we as workers try our hardest to to help them while having to do a million and one things at a time. Resulting in a misunderstanding that there is an attitude or issue overall. The joys of the job include creating lasting friendships with co-workers, management understands school comes first, and having an atmosphere where coming to work is a joy. – less

A Good Starting Job
Cashier (Former Employee), Boston, MAFebruary 26, 2014
Pros: 50% discount on meals
Cons: long hours
A typical day invovles greeting customers and helping them make decisions on what they should order as well as serve them and use a cash register as well as offer to carry their plates to their table and clean up after them once they are done. At the end of the night their is a lot of clean up.

Struggling Organization
General Manager (Former Employee), Boston, MAFebruary 19, 2014
Pros: good product and a unique concept.
Cons: poor training due to cost cuts and poorly maintained units.
After the restructure of the company from Mc Donalds, Boston Market still seems to be struggling financially. Restaurants are poorly maintained and cost cutting measures that are put in place have a large effect on the day to day operations of the units.
Even thought they have a good product when executed correctly, the concept lacks in training and – more... development of management as well as crew. And therefor lacks in professionalism and good restaurant standards. Their inability to attract good help becomes a downfall in what is now a competitive service orientated business. – less
