Team Member-Shift Manager (Former Employee) – Lawton, OK – July 18, 2018
A typical day would be to make sure all the employees were on time. The guests who purchased the product were happy and the Deli was clean. Keeping the employees happy along with good management was a priority. Managing the entire store and the money within along with doing the paper work and ordering necessary to keep the business running smoothly.
Waitress/Server (Former Employee) – Weatherford, TX – July 17, 2018
A typical day for me was pretty nice. I arrived shortly after the store opened and was typically assigned side-server duties for most of the day. I learned the value of elbow-grease and how nice it is to work with other employees who were willing to work just as hard. Management was not always courteous or respectful, but overall I feel that management was productive and did their jobs well in respects to employees and customers. The workplace culture was amicable and it was enjoyable to be a part of the staff. The hardest part of the job was the demands to come in for different shifts on relatively short notice. The most enjoyable part of the job was certainly the people I had the opportunity to work with and the interesting people I had the pleasure to serve.
Team Member/Cashier/Cook (Current Employee) – Avon, IN – July 17, 2018
McAlister's Deli has helped me mature in so many ways. It was my very first job and it has taught me good customer service. The managers are very friendly and will help us with whatever we need. They work very well with my schedule, considering I am in college. I enjoy working with my coworkers. I have made some great friends through this job. There can definitely be drama, but there's drama in all workplaces.
Food Preparation Worker (Current Employee) – North Olmsted, OH – July 16, 2018
At McAlisters you are expected to do a lot of work which can become very stressful, you don’t get breaks even when you work 6+ hours, not allowed to eat at all, and people get away with pretty much everything which becomes very annoying.
Cashier (Current Employee) – North Carolina – July 14, 2018
You wouldn’t want to work here if your a hard worker .. it goes unnoticed and unappreciated . You only move up if your close with the managers . Doesn’t matter if you’ve been a hard worker for 5 years and know the front and back of the house and train the new people
crew member (Former Employee) – Dothan, AL – July 13, 2018
I really enjoyed working here and customers were so sweet and loved coming due to the southern hospitality shown there. Everyone was greeted with a smile. I loved coming into work and meeting my co workers. Everyone helped and did their part. Really great managers and owners.
Hours, pay, time off when asked if extra, understanding.
Poor organization among management and employees, great co-workers
Front of House Employee/ Shift Leader (Former Employee) – Lubbock, TX – July 10, 2018
I was employed by McAlister's for 4 years. I never once had a raise or any benefits added despite usually working 30-40 hrs a week. Management was usually disorganized save a select few great managers.

Assistant Manager (Former Employee) – Champaign, IL – July 10, 2018
A typical day at work would begin with me getting the store ready to open at 10:30. I learned that there are ALOT of unprofessional General Managers. Workplace culture... employee morale is very low. there was not any part of the job that was hard for me to do. the most enjoyable part of the job was interacting with the guests.
Waitress/Cashier (Former Employee) – Shiloh, IL – July 10, 2018
I liked most of the people I worked with and our general manager is a great guy. We aren’t aloud to accept tips and you don’t get paid enough for what you tolerate. I’d recommend it more to a teen than I would an adult because half of the employees are lazy and try to brush off work on you so they can talk to each other.
You get ten percent off when you don’t work and thirty percent off when you do work
Cashier (Former Employee) – Carrollton, TX – July 10, 2018
I enjoyed for the most part the atmosphere and people I worked with. The general manager was an amazing person who was always available to discuss any issues I was having. The work pace was steady and there was always something to be done. I only left due to location and myself relocating.
Sandwich Artist (Former Employee) – Brownsburg, IN – July 3, 2018
McAlister's isn't a bad place to work for. The management is nice and if you have things going on in your life they seem to care and want to help. The downside if that they mostly employ kids whom aren't always reliable.
