Front of the House (Current Employee) – Indianapolis, IN – November 3, 2013
I've been with the company since our store opened and some days are really stressful but overall its a good start in the workforce. I like my managers and the work I do. I love making the guests as happy as I possibly can. That really is the best part of my job.
Server (Former Employee) – Signal Mountain, TN – April 20, 2017
It was a busy, busy place to work. The hard part was that when it was overly busy, manager's stress levels would cause them to lash out at employee's. We sometimes didn't have what we needed and I would often run errands for management.
There were great friendships and I am still friends with a lot of the people I met while working there. I did enjoy the times we were able to laugh and talk.
Cashier (Current Employee) – Charlotte, NC – April 20, 2017
A typical day at work would be taking orders from every customer that comes into McAlister's Deli. I have learned to cope with many different personalities and I have understood that everyone does not feel the same way as you through out the day. The hardest part of this job will be making everyone happy at the same time. The most enjoyable part of this job will be knowing that you have accomplished the hardest part at the end of the day.
A great place for anyone to work. Very friendly people. Excellent managers. Good pay.
Cashier/Cook/Dishwasher/Prep (Former Employee) – Andrews, TX – April 18, 2017
At Mcalisters Deli I learned how to work, socialize, be patient, cook, count money, and so much more. The managers were always looking for a way to help if you had any problem. They were hard on us but that made us better workers. The workplace is very friendly. The hardest part of the job was being fast and on time with cooking the meals. The most enjoyable part of the job was working with my high schools friends.
SHIFT LEADER (Current Employee) – Starkville, MS – April 15, 2017
A typical day at work is when the restaurant is filled with students coming in and out enjoying our food and atmosphere. Also the normal and loyal customers enjoy coming in for just a glass of our famous sweet tea. I learned that this every workplace has it's ups and downs but you have to learn how to look pass those things and just enjoy your job and make the customers happy. That's the most enjoyable part of the job is making customers happy and satisfied with their experience at McAlister's Deli.
Free tea day, several incentives for free tea or lunch
Cashier (Former Employee) – College Station, TX – April 11, 2017
McAlister's has great management on both the local and district level. Pay is negotiable and there are plenty of opportunities for advancement given the initiative. The customers are loyal and were always easy to interact with. The overall environment is very welcoming and professional.
Manager (Former Employee) – San Antonio, TX – April 11, 2017
Absolutely no raises in the company, hard to advance, pick inexperienced employees to manage restaurants while higher up management does not help what so ever. The turn out rate is outrageous. and management does not stick around. Work days are usually 11-12 hours a day.
Waitress (Former Employee) – Springfield, MO – April 8, 2017
It's a good job and the people are very friendly. It's a good enivorment for learning and having fun while working. The peopme make you feel aprt if the team right off the bat and they all have great personalities and are very understanding. They help you and work with you until you understand. They make sure you are comfortable before throwing you into the lions den.
I had the pleasure of working for the company and I was happy, I was getting good hours, decent pay with a raise every 6 months or so. Once the location I worked for changed GMs however it went downhill, The GM was rude and would shorten your hours to make you quit so he could bring in prepicked employees from his other store and give them instant promotions. it started good ended bad.
Food Service Worker (Former Employee) – Big Spring, TX – April 6, 2017
I enjoyed working there. They are busy at lunch and keep you on your toes. Making sure the food looks good and that its the right order . Managment is supportive. How far you want to go with the company is up to you...
Culturally Diverse and Great Enviorment to grow professionally
Cashier (Former Employee) – Roswell, GA – April 5, 2017
A typical day at work consisted of at left two major rush sessions of customers, and a pretty quite day in between. I learned how to handle a customer's complaint more effectively, and how to manage my time. Management is aware of your individual situations, so they understand if you need a more flexible schedule. The most difficult part of the job was multitasking between cashier and other positions. The most enjoyable part of the job was receiving great reviews.
Flexible work schedule, can work around school schedules
