Great to work for a private family, but difficult to change a old culture. There is only one way, and thats hard to change as well
Pros: free lunch, work/life balance
Cons: none that are personal, but the business ones are pay, benefits, and lack of empowerment
My work day varies, one day I am cooking, some days on the road hittng the locations, some days im pulling trailers, others im selling full service catering for hundreds of people. I have brought a lot to the team, and my expierience speaks for itself. We could do better with a focused leading team, but we are strong none the less. The management has made it this far, they lack follow through, and attention to the single big picture, instead of the collage. Once you build a strong team focus on the important side of business with the directors, but empower them to follow through with the compnay needs.
Hardest part of the job, is changing what everyone expected to stay the same.
I have learn a lot of new techniques, recipes, flavors, and other things. As well I have learned that You should absolutely always think out of the box.
