Very time consuming, lousy pay
General Manager (Former Employee) – San Diego, CA – October 22, 2014
If you would like to spend all of your time on this earth working and commuting to and from work, by all means, this is the company for you. As a General Manager for this company for 4 years, I have gone through over half a dozen transfers. the average commute time over this period was 90 min one way. Which might not sound too bad, however when you are passing 4 or 5 other store locations on your way to work it can be quite irritating. The truth is that the managers that are running those stores have the same commute coming from the other direction. Managers are expected to work 50 hours a week. Which causes them to have to take on the roll of cashier, food runner, food packer, prep cook, line cook, food coordinator, and dishwasher. And this is on top of all of the other managerial duties required to run a successful restaurant. There have been many days where I was one of two people staffed in the entire restaurant for up to 4 or 5 hours, without the ability to step out for a break. All of this is necessary to meet the obscene labor goals set by corporate management. Overall, if you like to be a one-man-show, and work every waking hour of your life, in a high stress environment, then this just might be the place for you. But don't expect to get paid very much for what you do. Out of the dozen hats you'll be wearing while working for this company, you'd be luck if you got paid for wearing just one.
over-worked, under appreciated, unrealistic goals, poor staffing allowances
