Cook (Former Employee) – Mansfield, MA – October 5, 2017
The environment of b.good as a customer is very nice but as an employee there is no real sense of comradery or teamwork. The style of management In my location was very lassie-fare and unstructured. For the most part they were unprofessional, misinformed and poorly coordinated.
That being said this job is as entry level as the food industry gets. The work is very easy and straight forward and more so focused on speed than quality of work.

B. Good in Beverly is a fun work place that I had the most fun tie working. The management is cool, your coworkers are cool and everybody is willing to help out. Your job is taught to you by others and you can easily pick it up in a matter of days.
Free food when working and 50% off when not working

Great job for younger part time people interested in testing out the restaurant industry without going full service. Not much room for advancement once solid managers are locked into their position. Great company and great culture.
District Manager (Former Employee) – Boston, MA – December 14, 2017
Culture and leadership from CEO is toxic. High turn over and horrible work environment. CEO micro manages every scenario. When you provide feedback or solutions they are dismissed. Company does not value staff and is adverse to change. Stay away

The majority of the people there were really nice and helpful. However, the managers were trash and I wasn't even trained by a manager I was trained by coworkers which caused me troubles later on. It wasn't the worst but it wasn't the best.
Would rather chew glass than work for B.good again.

B.good is nothing but a stressful environment. There was no help for those who needed it, you are expected to do things that are not your job and then are shunned for not doing them. They will play around with your schedule and put you on even after you told them you were not available to work and had the request approved. Your preferences and desires are not taken into account. They do not care about your safety. If you get injured, you are told to suck it up and get back on the line. You will be over worked, drastically underpaid and then told you are not doing a good enough job no matter how well you perform. You will not get a raise you earned because they "Can't afford it" but they will still expect you to take all tests and certifications that are required to be completed in order to gain that raise. The work environment is disgusting, They say they care about cleanliness but only expect for certain staff members to actually clean. If you are sick and need to call out forget about it. "You need to find coverage or you'll be written up" even though no one will cover and its a safety hazard for a sick employee to be on the line. Management will not come to help you if you are short staffed. "You'll be fine" "It won't get busy". Instead they'll expect you to cut down to 2 people for the night and then be furious when proper closing standards weren't done and you did not get out 25 minutes after close. They will never schedule enough people during the night shift for you to be "set up for success" and on the rare occasion they do, they will all be trainees whomore... don't know what they're doing. The job is a joke. The customers are rude and there is absolutely nothing that would ever make me go back or subject another person to the torment and poor treatment you suffer through being an employee for the company.less
General Manager (Current Employee) – Short Pump, VA – March 13, 2017
Stuck in Crew positions daily-Work Open to Close shifts - Required 55 hours 6 day work weeks (DM makes adjustments to your completed schedules getting you over 60 hours) - No personal time and only a week vacation to be accrued. Train in an disorganized store with money problems, lots of drama, and too many chiefs. Local food means you order from about 10 different suppliers - ALL paperwork is manual!!!! Software out of date and creates many issues with inventory etc with no solutions
"Too good to be true" atmosphere and you are only a number. I recommend that you run! Crew, Managers whatever position! Up North they seem to know what they are doing - But down south they need some leadership!
Free meals - decent food - cool concept
Not organized - poor leadership - no accountability - too much paperwork - unrealistic goals by DM

I worked for b. Good for about 5 months & was taught the basics quick & easy. The organization of the establishment could have been a little better. Overall no full makeover is needed just a few touch ups.
