I think there are to many chiefs and not enough soldiers.
If you're employee's aren't happy there will be less profit.
I trained with Corporate for General Mills. You cannot!!! Call an employee out in front of customers or other employees!! Always in private and as a teacher not as upper management. Chefs should not have to be tipped.
An employee should never have to divulge information about tips or money made. It is not proper to ask!!! The only people privy to cash made by employees is the IRS!!!
Maybe upper management needs to have a strike or a walk out to deal with!!! Plenty if other jobs and most likey better jobs!!! Wake up. It's not about the CEO. It's about the employees!!! Life balance, family and a happier place to work. Get a grip People!!!

Just some advice.
If you're overloaded? Source your duties. Make your team involvement, include your team. Speak up and involve all staff. If that doesn't work? Go up the ladder. Maybe show interest in a Job that uses your talents better. If you feel like you're hitting a wall, look for a job, that will involve more of you. There are plenty of jobs that can use a person willing to grow and train to your liking. Never stop. Always move forward. Re-think, re- source, re-train. Better is on the horizon.

Look at the upper management that has been left to their own devices. They are toxic.

Be involved and ask what needs to be changed. Everyone I work with is dissatisfied with their job at McMenamins, so clearly something is going wrong there

More hands on and generally better training, less studying from a giant stack of paper.
