line cook (Former Employee) – Milwaukee, WI – May 7, 2017
I loved working as a line cook but the management and team were not as one. the job in itself was very hands on fun and very easy to learn. the hardest part of the job was having to pick up the next persons slack due to being short handed.
Cook II (Current Employee) – Phoenix, AZ 85034 – April 30, 2017
This is a good company to work for overall the compensation is below my desired wage and does not reciprocate the amount of labour I put in. Wages are set through negotiations between the company and the union so it's very hard to earn merit raises if you stand out for your hard work, as giving raises to the hardest workers would violate the pre-established contract already set in place for everyone. We get a 15 cent raise every couple months regardless of if you're an outstanding worker or an underachiever. That causes many good workers to quit and thus leads to a high turnover rate, also at time the job is very demanding which weeds out the slackers during our on season. The work life balance is fine for most people but for me it's disproportioned and that's my own fault for attaining a position where my boss and co-workers depend on me hella. This job is a great job to refine your work ethic because there is never an absence of activities to complete but then again that is the downside because no matter how hard you work your pay will top out at $13.00 an hour regardless. The only step after that is to become salaried and good luck if you have no degree, previous management experience or seniority within the company. During flex season they put their best players on the roster and you can potentially work 70, 80, 90 even 100+ hours a week during those peak seasons. The benefits are great after three months you qualify for vision, dental and medical which is deducted directly from each paycheck. After one year you earn up to two weeks of PTO. I made the best out of this jobmore... every single day and I've thrived so I can't really say anything bad about it just personally my food and work quality is superb, I've hit my head on the ceiling and now my time is worth more than . I respect my G.M. though and I can't leave him dry without someone good enough to replace me.less
Overtime, Opportunity to Gain Experience, Disciplinary Lenient
I enjoyed this job. I helped build the restaurant I managed and had great support in the beginning. We had weekly meetings with our director who explained in detail what he expected. As time went on though things started to go south and it was all due to lack of communication from upper management to lower management. I would work for the company again just not here in Tampa.
This place is very unorganized and management is not helpful. It's an easy job to keep, but lacks professionalism. They move you around their property because they're always short staffed and sometimes you work by yourself and management doesnt give you breaks.

Sous Chef (Former Employee) – Queens, NY – March 12, 2017
A very toxic company all managers work very hard because all units are always short staffed and the upper management expect you to make something out of nothing you can get fired if the gm is having a bad day
Server (Current Employee) – Queens, NY – February 26, 2017
SSP is a fast paced environment. Everything is moving round the clock, so we tend to stay busy. Everybody has great individual personality. Everybody works together,lightening the load of your shoulders, and have fun in the process.
a good company to work for. plenty of overtime or flexed work schedules for those who have children or those who attend college A good company which is a stabled food service company in the airport all over the united states in over 60 air ports The most enjoyable part of the job is serving the customer and preparing the different food entrees for the vendors and the customers. Rotating scheduling very good rating and every good pay raises and promotions within 2 years The most enjoyable part of this job is working until the entire job is completed. The management has weekly meeting and new agendas for the employees There is no hard part of the job and everyday working and preparing food is a good experience and practice in the food industry.
