Manager (Former Employee) –  Arlington, TXMay 22, 2017
- Restaurant culture is dependent on managers
- Best stores to work for are the ones with the most profits.
- Older stores need a lot of repairs
- Customer is always right, so even when you are right you take the hit on a survey.

Works around your schedule but doesn't make up for other flaws
CATERING SPECIALIST, Cashier, Pastry (Former Employee) –  Dallas, TXMay 12, 2017
I really enjoyed working there but because I have always loved the fast paced environment. There is no chance of moving up in the company. I always worked hard and learned all the positions but it seemed that no one else cared to improve the work place. My fiance works for the company as well but in a higher position than I had and he agrees that this company does not care for their workers. They seem to hire anyone as a manager.
Pros
flexible
Cons
low pay for a heavy work load

Busy depending on what time of the day. You really learn everything in the restaurant. Dishwashing, serving customers, cleaning, sorting, catering to customer's needs.

Great life balance for the restaurant industry
Assistant Manager (Current Employee) –  Pearland, TXMarch 8, 2017
Having been in the Restaurant business for over ten years La Madeleine does offer a great balance between life and work. It is not a mom and pop restaurant and it is not a huge corporate entity, but it is just right.
Pros
great atmosphere
Cons
huge employee turnover

Required place to work, customers regularly impolite
Busboy/Waiter (Former Employee) –  Round Rock, TXJanuary 10, 2017
Boss was very helpful. Most coworker were great to be around. Hardest part of the job as well as the lesson to be learned was dealing with impolite/generally unpleasant customers. Management was flexible on everyone's schedule.
Pros
Fun work
Cons
Short breaks, too many impolite customers, back aches at the end of the day

HOST/CASHIER (Current Employee) –  Houston, TXNovember 10, 2016
I've been working at la madeleine for more than 1 year. I like my job, the only thing i don't like is that no one helps you around when they see that you are busy.

has its pros and cons
Barista/Bakery (Current Employee) –  Orlando, FLSeptember 16, 2016
When its slow or you have the right manager to help you through when its fast, its a great place. However, if you don't have a manager or coworkers to help you out (which is unfortunately often the case) you'll quickly become swamped with taking orders, making them and then trying to run them all out at the same time.
If you do have the right manager and coworkers though, working here becomes a lot of fun. Best part of this job for me was making the coffee. Lattes, cappuccinos, mochas, I love making all of them.
Most of the coworkers and managers are really helpful, they'll give you pointers when you are doing something wrong or just have a question in general.
Pros
free drinks, relatively easy work, good food, coworkers and managers are good for the most part, discounts for food
Cons
rarely get breaks, have to pay for all your food, sometimes people arent around when you need them

Restaurant Server (Former Employee) –  Houston, TXMarch 7, 2016
The most enjoyable part was meeting people with good personality. My co-workers were also for the most part college students. The management at the company could have been better organized, but for the most part, they did the best with the tools they had available to them. There were no hard aspects of the job.
