Keep your back to the wall! No Integrity.
Former Chef Manager (Former Employee) – Baltimore, MD – September 21, 2013
I came on to train under a Food Service Director who was touted as a solid professional that had great coaching and training skills. The plan was to learn this person's job quickly with the expectation to move into an FSD position. In reality, the person I trained under was working a well crafted angle that was built to keep clients smiling without actually managing the food service operation. As long as the house of cards didn't fall apart, nothing else really mannered. This "effective manager" would sell their training style to me while, in reality, not teach me anything. Weeks went by where I wasn't certain of an action plan or what kind of routine I should follow. Completely duplicitous and untrustworthy, this person would allow questionable food practices to occur and pass the blame to subordinates when the person needed a scapegoat.
My exit occured after a direct, professional conflict with this person. The food service director did not take appropriate action with HR, but instead, plotted my termination complete with falsified incidents to satisfy personal vengence.
the payscale and hours are satisfactory.
the corporate management favor poor leadership because of personal decision-making.
