Kitchen Leader (Former Employee) –  10250 Santa Monica Blvd , CA 90067March 14, 2019
The manager at Asian box century city is a bad manager. She doesn’t know what she doing. Gives hours to the lazy people and loves the gossip/rumors. Don’t work here.

worst place I ever worked!
Cook (Former Employee) –  Koreatown, CAFebruary 10, 2019
I was scared to speak up but the past managers are horrible. They treat you and cut your hours horribly. Because they want you to quit. They brain wash the rest of the team to not like you! IVE TRIED contacting CEOs about this and they never replied to me. I wouldn’t come back here even if I was desperate for another job. Do not apply to this. (The previous jobs I’ve had I been a manager) and this by far is the worst place to move up. They don’t care about their workers

Fun and supportive work environment that you can gain great skills in and learn about the foundation of good hard work.

Gained a lot of hospitality and customer service experience for a first job. Was able to advance from cashier to shift leader through hard work and proving myself. Great job.
Pros
Free lunches, free work clothes, fun, ability to advance
Cons
Often short staffed, constantly training new employees (training takes about two weeks)

Bad management
Grill Cook and prep (Current Employee) –  Santa Monica, CAApril 5, 2018
No respect for their employees. Take you off the schedule and don’t ever call you or tell you why. Just let you go. Very unprofessional. Management needs A LOT of help. No advancements, no benifits, nothing really in it for you working there other than long hours, of your lucky to get them, of sweat and tears with nothing that comes back. Even after six months personally coming from me.
Pros
None

Typical Day at The Box
Shift lead (Current Employee) –  San Jose, CAMarch 2, 2018
Overall, a day at AB, depending on whether or not you're cross-trained, can be a balance between taking orders, sending out orders, or even down to making the orders. A majority of people at AB are very friendly and easy to work with, and the job itself is not entirely back breaking - however, like any job, you have to work hard and understand that a job is a responsibility and privilege, rather than an easy ride.

The job provides a good opportunity to develop multitasking and endurance in a fast-paced environment. The brand itself likes to cater to their customers and resolve any issues they might have.
Pros
Free lunch, free uniform

Cashier/Kitchen Staff (Former Employee) –  San Jose, CADecember 27, 2017
Management is terrible. Treated employees like garbage and showed little to no respect to workers. More of a dictatorship than any kind of “family” or anything else they claim to be. Worst job i have ever had.

Lack of management professionalism
"boxer" (Former Employee) –  Irvine, CANovember 20, 2017
The location in Irvine is being managed by a lady who has never managed a restaurant before, she is the lady in charge of payroll sitting in as temporary manager. Everything that was promised to me for the job never happened. She treats employees unfairly and is quick to become angry, often yelling at employees unreasonably. Do not recommend working here.
Pros
Free food
Cons
Poor management, poor hours, poor scheduling

Lead successful day-to-day operations (Former Employee) –  San Francisco, CASeptember 12, 2017
C.E.O. lacked professionalism but the staff and other management worked hard for you. The culture within the four walls can be achieved but its truely up to you and what you cultivate, don't expect help to create that culture for your restaurant from the outside.
Pros
small company
Cons
Poor C.E.O. leadership

High expectations, good pay
Service Manager (Current Employee) –  Irvine, CAMay 25, 2017
The pay is really great here! The upper management expects A LOT from employees and demand perfection. There are lots of opportunities to get rewards, bonuses, and raises, but the follow through on these aren't so great.
