Friendly atmosphere with a heavy workload
Line Cook (Current Employee) – Towson, MD – October 10, 2018
Um, I generally rather enjoy working at CBC
The mood of the place varies greatly by the tone of management, but in general, the managers are basically regular employees (who make more money than you) than they are overseers / "big boss" types. They will roll their sleeves up and cook food alongside you, wash dishes, serve food,to move things along as successfully as possible.
As long as everyone is currently getting along and someone is playing some music in the kitchen, a sense of camaraderie can carry you through a lot of the workload. The workload can honestly be a bit much, however, as we go through lengthy periods where there aren't enough hourly workers on the schedule to efficiently complete all the tasks expected, which is quite stressful when corporate decides to add a bunch of new items and legwork to the menu with little thought to how it's going to be executed, from a practical standpoint.
15 menu items to make to order on a 2-burner stove, within a 5 minute window of time?? Whose bright idea was that.
Half-off employee meals, accumulating PTO, flexible scheduling, friendly atmosphere
the pay is nothing to brag about, understaffed, corporate performance standards that are often not realistic or practical
