Gourmet & Company is an incredible atmosphere for anyone who enjoys fine dining.
Host/ Cashier (Current Employee), Johnson City, TNOctober 29, 2014
Pros: incredible place to work and dine.
On any given day I could be the front of house manager, cashier, or I could be the host, no matter the task everyone at Gourmet worked together as a team to ensure the guests at Gourmet had the best dining – more... experience possible. I really wanted to work in the restaurant industry to gain experience while in school and Gourmet was excellent because they were flexible with with my schedule and management was always great and very understanding. At Gourmet I learned to coordinate with customers and employees on placing orders and also helping with the overflow and seating during the lunch and dinner rushes, which at times can be the hardest part of the job. The most enjoyable part of working at Gourmet is always seeing customers leave smiling and come back smiling. – less

Pros: great people
Cons: too many breaks without pay
I loved working at gourmet services I just did not like having to find summer jobs every year and being laid off during the holidays it was too much of a struggle for cash during the most important times of the year for college student.

Fast paced, production type atmosphere, result oriented daily
District Manager (Current Employee), Atlanta, GASeptember 20, 2013
Pros: small business, tight knit co-workers, supportive colleagues
Cons: excessive travel for long periods of time
I presently work in mostly fast pace atmospheres where it is a lot of hands on supervision, planning, budgeting, catering, reports and fact building and etc. I understand how to exercise conscious control – more... over the amount of time spent on specific activities, especially to increase effectiveness, efficiency or productivity. The food service business depends on a range of skills to manage time, accomplish specific tasks, projects and goals while complying to a due date.

I have learned the necessary skillset to manage food service cafeterias, restaurants, concession stands, private parties and etc. I also have learned to work with many types of personalities, with a wide range of skillsets and to focus on treating people the way I want to be treated.

I believe that management holds the responsibility to grow a business and must have the necessary skillset to utilize the practical techniques that can provide positive results when leading people. There has to be some consensus amongst management that an individual has a family life and need to have time with family to be more job focused, successful, and happy individuals.

Most of my co-workers are skilled individuals and customer service oriented. They are good people to work with and possess strong ability to adapt to situations as they occur.

The hardest part of the job is traveling and leaving my family for sometime months at a time as situations arrive in various locations.

The most enjoyable part of my job is working to motivate people and to see that motivation result in positive customer satisfaction. – less

Supervisor/Cook (Current Employee), Montgomery, ALSeptember 13, 2013
Pros: good pay
Cons: some of the higher up people inside the company need to be replaced.
A typical day at work will be what you make. It depends on you, your attitude and mind frame play a big roll in the workplace.
