This is the worst job I have ever had and I'm sure they won't survive without change
Kitchen Manager and Chef (Former Employee), Austin, TXNovember 9, 2014
Pros: i think they finally got benefits
Cons: atmosphere, management, ownership, work/life balance
I believed in this concept so much when I started here. I thought that I would meet people with like minds and ambitions, which, sadly, was not the case.

The team I managed was amazing- very good people. The upper management team is a joke. Nepotism is a very common concept here as the owner chooses to hire his friends and ex-girlfriends. They cuss – more... and scream at staff and don't understand their customers.

You are expected to work 6 days a week and if you need time off or request a legal lunch break, you will be denied.

The food used to be healthy food- now it is processed and completely unhealthy.

I'm not a bitter ex-employee, the truth is that all of the people I worked with previously have been let go in the past year as this company is struggling. I would never recommend anyone take a position at this company. – less

Amazing Passionate Upcoming Company that grew to quickly...

Overall a great learning experience, met a ton of self-motivated, young, hard-workers that share the same passion for Food, Health and Life.

Downside: Company outgrew itself very quickly and the dynamics quickly changed. Longer Hours, Foundation was not properly developed, requiring others to work extended days and hours to meet production needs.

Nice experience. Different.
Portioner (Former Employee), Hermosa Beach, CAMay 9, 2014
Pros: learning new skills and techniques. challenging. great for fitness
Cons: lack of interaction with higher uppers aside from kitchen manager.
At My Fit Foods, it's a grate opportunity for someone who's desire to be a chef or wish to run there own restaurant.It's a fast paced environment with a high demand of competition required from it's employee's. The best thing about them my time working there was Management.They set the tone for the day with team meetings and having that game plan to – more... help us get through what seemed like a very long workday.They were inspiring and motivating; encouraging team members to take advantage of the chance to rise with the company. Communication and chemistry of team members were stellar. The hardest part of the job is being placed all over the kitchen after working most of the time in the freezer. Because of the difference of temperate, when you outside of the freezer and being assigned different duties, it get's too hot; causing perspire, to being subjected to getting sick. The most enjoying had to be the energy and vibe as all the employees on shift worked as a team to get the job complete, Very rare was our shift job duties incomplete for lack of effort from other employees, which made the day fast and easy. – less

most disorganized, unfriendly, unwelcoming work experience.
Production (Former Employee), Scottsdale, AZApril 23, 2014
Pros: leaving work
Cons: working
When i worked here, it was a disaster. Heres a run down on a typical day:
Get to work at 2pm
See that we must make 1700 meals total.
See thaf boss only schelued 4 people on producrion that day.
See that cooks have cooked only dinner meals.
See that labeler only labeled breakfast meals
I go to freezer room and the boxes of produce that came in are everywhere – more... in the room creating a definite fire hazard.
Wait around till cooks make breakfast food so we can finally start making meals around 3-3:30.
Start making meals, when I get to snacks, realized that prep didnt prep the apples, oranges, etc.
Have to prep self.
See that portioner decided to just not portion about 50 or more portion cups for meals.
Have to portion self.
By 6 o clock only have snacks and half breakfast done because of all the delay and disorganization.
Oh yeah, did i mention our dishwasher didnt show up?
One of the 4 people on production have to move to dishes. 3 people making meals.
Dishwasher was scheduled 5 days a week. Only showed up 1 day a week.would call in or no show almost everyday. Ever fired? Nope.
Making more meals and realized prep didnt dice the chicken.
Go to prep diced chicken, WOOPS, raw chicken. (Idk what kind of cook, cant cook chicken all the way thru.)
Have to put chicken back in oven.
Work, work, work
After meals finally done, clean everything. Sounds easy right? Wrong. Most cleaning equipment was broken or we didnt even have any.
After cleaning, we all hop on dishes and help finish.
Leave around midnight. Wake up next day and do almost same thing again.
This is just a TYPICAL day at myfitfoods when i worked there. Can you imagine what happens when things went wrong?
My boss had forgot to order gloves, trashbags, washcloths, aprons.
He has forgotten to order meal boxes, and produce, and meat, and seasonings.
I had a accaintence hired, he worked for two whole weeks, but its too bad because my boss forgot to put him on payroll and he.didnt get paid for another 4 days. (Not only employee paycheck theyve messed up)
When I started here, i was making 10$p/hr. After two months they cut everyones pay without any notice, before or after.
Our hours used to be 12-cls but was changed 2-cls because the two stores we made food for, did not know how to send pre-orders before 2. Although, our last pre order usually came in around 3:30. This was changed without notice as well. I did not know I would be working different hours until the day the new schedule came up.
The last thing on my list is that I have not received my w2 form. I filed for an extention. I called and emailed them but no one has responded. If i dont get a call or email back by friday Im calling the BBB. – less

As long as you have cool employee's with you and the manager's aren't leaving early or you've yet to meat them it's a good job.

Pros: building relationships, healthy food to eat, helping people reach goals
Cons: pay
A Typical Day At My Fit Foods. This Company's concept is based on helping people live a healthy lifestyle. What My Fit Foods offer is healthy pre-made meals for any ones convenience. This Includes any meal of the day Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner, and Snacks. What i do working front of the house would be to explain to people the concept and the health benefits – more... and nutrition facts of the food. Usually driving people that want help maintaing health goals to get on a program My Fit Foods offers for people to lose weight, maintain body mass, gain muscle, etc. Sales is a big part of my job because of course we want to get people to buy food and do our program but also building relationships with clients is very much important also. I also do any street marketing by going around to gyms or businesses to inform them about the concept of my fit foods.

Key Holder: Me being a key holder as well i open and close the store, close down registers, send off emails at the end of the night to corporate. Also entering information into excel through out the day. – less

Only want the money....
General Manager (Former Employee), Southlake, TXJanuary 13, 2014
My fit foods is doing an amazing thing. The food they supply to help clients lose weight is good stuff! But in my time there I felt upper management only cared about hitting numbers and not actually helping these people. When I first started there I fell in love with the passion to help others become healthy but the longer I was there the more "corporate" – more... My fit became. It became so stressful. They don't care how much weight you lose just as long as you put down that $1500 deposit each month. – less

sorry management
customer service (Former Employee), Austin, TXDecember 22, 2013
Cons: sorry management
You give this company everything you have & it's still not good enough for them. They have management issues for a reason, they promote the people who do the bare minimum if that & expect the rest of the team to pick up their slack because they're "management". Gkm is a freaking joke, horrible company to work for, they appreciate nothing & expect everything. – more... There is extreme favoritism in this sorry company, best workers leave for a reason AVOID at all costs. – less
