Stimulating but frustrating
Coordinator (Former Employee) – Englewood, CO – August 14, 2018
I enjoyed my time at Maggiano's. It's a lively kitchen with new challenges around every corner. Clean, efficient and well lead, the kitchen is a well oiled machine that produces insane amounts of food every day. Front and back of house get along better than any other restaurant that I've worked in. However, there are problems outside of the kitchen.
The constant shuffle of management regularly destabilizes the whole restaurant. There is also a lack of follow-through. Good ideas are agreed upon, and then nothing happens. The corporate structure is also very frustrating, as little thought is given to implementation at the restaurant level. Corporate doesn't seem to understand that you can only move a finite amount of food per hour.
Daily meals, full benefits, flexible scheduling
Short / no breaks (illegal), lack of follow-through, neglected duties
