Pros: 50% off of meals (yay!)
Cons: everyone there micromanages
Where do I begin?
Job Work/Life Balance:
There is no such a thing with Unidine. They expect you to be at work every day, 365. If you have children who are sick or if you get sick yourself, don't call out. Or your micromanaging boss will be all over you the following day. NO VACATION! Yes, I said it, NO VACATION. They have such a high turnover problem, that they changed the policy so that new employees will not be eligible for vacation until 1 calendar year from the start date! That is unheard of!
Benefits are poor, they offer their employees the cheapest packages available. Compensation is a joke. Overworked and underpaid is the theme at Unidine. Unless you are a vice president, then you should be expecting a 2 percent increase, yearly, if your lucky. And two percent is not always guaranteed.
Unidine's turnover rate is about 40 percent! 40 percent of all new employees will quit within the first 6 months. It is a revolving door. One week your meeting a new manager/director, then the next your meeting someone replacing the person you just met. There is no advancement. Unless you r best friends with Richard, the CEO, you are not climbing the ladder.
Where do I begin. Management walk around as if they are better than everyone. The corporate office is so fake, everyone hates their job because they are overworked, underpaid, and gets bitched out by Richard, the CEO, but the employees walk around with the fakest smiles on their faces.
get ready for your DAILY LINE UP! Every morning, the biggest waste of time I have ever herd of. All of the employes have to sit through this fake 4 minute pep rally and everyone who is presenting hates doing it. They preach fresh foods, but everything theres comes out of a can!
Overall, if you want to work in food service, stick with the big guns, Aramark and Sodexo. At least you will get paid more and have better growth opportunities.
